Good morning and welcome to the Beverly Hills Real Estate Blog.
Sunday. It is going to be warm again particularly out in the valleys could get up over a hundred in some areas. The beaches mid 70's, downtown low 90's, the valleys 100+. Try to stay cool.
This is Sunday that means Open House day. Please click the link or the open house guide. www.themlsweekendopenhouseguide.com
There is an interesting article regarding open houses in the Times Real Estate section.
The upshot: Sellers want them. What sellers don't realize is very few houses sell from open house showings. The person who benefits most from an open house is the real estate agent who may gain a buyer while sitting on the open house. Meantime the seller leaves the house open for strangers to go traipsing through... Make sure your agent escorts potential buyers through your house.
We've actually sold a few houses from opens but the National Association of Realtors says, a small percentage of "open house hunters" are truly looking to buy. Just be careful if you're holding you house open. Hide all valuables and be sure your agent accompanies any potential buyer through your home. We've heard horror stories about items that turn up missing after open houses.
That's the "pearl of wisdom" from us today. You can ind us at www.patandmelody.com Stop by and say HI. Have a nice Sunday and we'll talk tomorrow.
