How long do you schedule your open house?
I generally schedule an open house for a two hour period. I'm wondering if this time frame is what most agents do or should I adjust my open house times. I have seen some open houses scheduled for an hour while others are scheduled for an hour an a half.
The most "extreme" (or should I say brief) open house I have seen was a 15 minute duration. Yes, that's right, the open was held from 12:15 pm to 12:30 pm! Oddly enough, they did have visitors during that time frame and also had a lender on hand to answer questions.
The reason I know that this 15 minute open house had visitors is that I had buyers interested in the home (I had taken them through it) and they went to the open to give the home another look. They reported back to me that they weren't the only people at the open. While they were there a few other people were in attendance.
They did purchase another home that was a better buy for them however.
I'm not sure a 15 minute open house is the way to go and I'm continuing with a two hour open house schedule. I am considering an hour and a half schedule in the future in order to hold multiple opens on the same day... but I haven't moved in that direction yet.
What works for you?
