OPEN HOUSE ON A WEDNESDAY??

Sure, if you're Margaret Rome and you know how to "work" an OPEN HOUSE EVENT.Open House

The listing for this property is owned by our own Pat Kennedy.  She wisely engaged Margaret Rome to list and sell the property.

O.K., thanks to Margaret's Open House savvy, there have now been about 25 plus additional "eyes" that have toured the property.  Don't discount the importance of getting more eyes to see a home for sale. 

If they don't see it, they won't bring a buyer, be a buyer or refer a buyer.  If no one sees the house, the house will not sell.  Remember that when some agents tells you that Open House events don't sell homes.  I have sold homes as a result of Open House events.

Coincidentally, Margaret telephoned me yesterday with the good news that she closed on another one of my listing referrals. 

Yee Haa!!

We Had An Open House Party and Look Who Came.

It was a  colorful fall day, in Baltimore, with a bit of liquid sunshine. That did not stop the brightness inside this gorgeous Weston home at 9913 Middle Mill Drive Owings Mills, MD. 21117.

Each person who walked in was  impressed... with the size, the lay out, the creative use of space, the two car garage, the luxury master bedroom suite, the one floor convenience, the man cave area and the perfect  kitchen where everyone wanted to congregate. Lucky that this gourmet space holds a  crowd.

We had a wonderful turnout!  Not bad for rainy 'humpday' at lunch time.

So Who came?  Margaret Rome Holds Another Successful AR Open House!

ActiveRainers came, neighbors came, other agents came, real estate professionals came and most important friends came. This is the way to showcase a special home. Open the house on the MLS, on our sites,  on our emails,  but  also open it with a personal  phone call  and invitation. Yes it does work.

You can call it an open house, you can call it a broker's open, you can call it a gathering or you can call it an ActiveRain Party! One of these special people might have the right buyer for this perfect home.

I'm with you Open Houses do help sell the more individuals who see the home the better for the seller.

I always put my clients first in any transaction!

That appears to be the who's who of ActiveRain in the state of Maryland. Congratulations!

Unless we allow crickets as members of ActiveRain now, the attendance at my open houses is very limited =]

We have an agent here who is one amazing cook, she never disappoints us with her culinary delights. And then of course we get to see her listings, which is a great thing all the way around!

Margaret is one smart cookie, (and so is Pat too!)

Open Houses work in some areas.  There are sooo many people who think they don't.   And you can make them fun and interesting.

Lenn, Thank you for taking the  time to reblog. We had a great turnout even on a Wednesday. Houses sell if houses get seen. You have to "WORK" the opens...they don't just happen.

  I love it when you are able to say...Yee Haa!!

Hey, if it works, it works!

And, um, which person was it that brought the eye count to, um, twenty FIVE? 

Well, no matter - the more the merrier!

Jay.  Margaret reported 21 visitors.  I figured a couple of neighbors and Margaret come to about - - - 25.

Margaret.  I know how much work they are, but I also know that they work.

Ruthmarie.  The ones who think that open houses don't work are agents who simply don't want to engage in that process and don't want anyone else to either.

Claude.  Indeed.  Homes don't sell themselves. 

Connie.  Thanks.  Margaret is my "go to" listing agent in the Baltimore area.

Lou.  Thanks.

Brenda.  Put in context, considering the location, this property will take some work, but if anyone can do it. . . .

Andrea.  Yes.  When a smart listing agent puts their own property in the hands of another agent, that says a lot.

Paul.  Familiar faces indeed.

Pat.  To me, that is fundamental.

Jay.

Even numbers, even stacks, even shares, etc. are for compulsive folks, like MONK.

Odd numbers, arrangements, displays, etc. are for the artistic folks.
