Open houses: What to look for at an open house

 

Here are the top 5 reasons some agents at CM Fox gave for “reasons open houses are awesome”

  • Open houses are another great tool for getting a home marketed. While the exact buyer may not come to the OH, the “lookers” may spread the word to a friend, family member or co-worker.–Anne Daley
  • Great for people who are just starting to think about buying a new house. It lets them see what is available at what price point and each one is a barometer for the next house they see. –Anne Daley
  • Gives people in your community and/or neighborhood to look at the house. They often help promote the house in and around the area. –Kate Newbegin
  • Many people buy homes they see while visiting open houses. There is a convenience factor of just being able to go to an open house when you want to and spend time looking around the house without having to set up an appointment. — Lisa Wloch
  • Open houses are a great way to get many people through your home in a short period of time. Seller’s only have to leave their house for a few hours on one afternoon rather than multiple times during the week or weekend. — Lisa Wloch
