TIPS ON HAVING A SUCCESSFUL OPEN HOUSE There are many opinions from agents on the worth of conducting open houses. Some believe it is a waste of time, others feel it is a worthwhile exercise. I suspect those that feel it is a waste of time aren't taking the necessary steps in preparation to have a successful one, or going in with a positive mindset.Of course, it is up to the Seller if they request that you conduct one... and I almost always recommend at least one public one, in addition to one for agents.  The main objective for having an open house … (6 comments)
