I wanted to drop everyone a line with regards to some fantastic news we recently heard. Three times each year we hold an event that we call Open House Extravaganza. I know a lot of brokerages do something similar. We like to have over 100 homes whenever we have one and have had over 300 at events in the past. The last few times that we've held the event we've heard very little positive feedback from agents. Unfortunately, many of them were not seeing the buyers come through the open houses.
Last weekend we held our event and the results were overwhelmingly positive. One open house had over 30 people walk through. Several reported more than ten prospects. We had very few of the over one hundred that reported no prospects. I think that is a fantastic result. We always run at least one full color full page ad for the event and the reports were that people carried the advertisement into the open houses. One of our agents commented that he thinks the buyers are starved for open houses as agents have slowed down the number that they are holding. That's great news!
I wanted to post it to give everyone a little bit of the encouragement that I've felt after talking with the agents but also to see if others had heard the same results. Please leave me a comment with good or bad info and let me know where you are!
Best to everyone,
