Who likes to do OPEN HOUSES???

By
Real Estate Agent with Elite Realty Group

Is that a "Crazy" question to ask or not??? I have read several posts that talked about Open Houses and I don't know that I have read very many positive comments at all --- I have to say that I do "enjoy" doing open houses especially if people show up!  Being fairly new to the business, it has been a way for me to meet potential clients and I have gotten business from doing them - I have never yet heard of anyone in my office selling the house that they were doing the open house in, but I have heard some good news about meeting so many new clients - so the way that I looked at it - If I could take a couple hours of my time and acquire a new client or two -- I decided to go for it!  So far - so good!

I would like them much better if they were productive and led to sales on the homes we were marketing.

Open houses are good, great way to meet people and let them know your out there.

My client base grows faster when I do open houses.  I can really tell the difference when I stop doing them!

I have done sooooooooooo many of these things and I have never gotten anywhere with it.  I avoid doing them.  Waste of time for ME.

I actually like doing open houses...but I go at them with a different attitude. I use them to catch up on paperwork, do mailings, write Thank You notes, and blog...the only difference is I do it in someone else's house. Rarely do I even come close to selling a house, but I do make contacts. One PLUS I have noticed about advertising an Open House, is it sometimes puts a degree of urgency in another buyer's mind that likes the house and they make an offer BEFORE the open house, to avoid the competition. In my 15 years, I would say that has happened 6 or 8 times.
