Open houses are nearly as old as the Palm Beach real estate market itself and have been around long before the internet started to become the average person’s first stop when buying a new home. Since so many studies point out that the majority of buyers start their home search on the internet, some buyers are taking their realtor’s questionable advice and forgoing the open house altogether.
It’s true that with the advent of interactive slideshows and video, it’s easy to get a glimpse of any Palm Beach real estate even if you’re in another state. Yet despite these figures of increased internet home buying, studies also show that a good portion of buyers are still purchasing their homes after doing their own personal walkthrough at an open house.
At the end of the day, tried and true methods like an open house can still be the deciding factor in getting your home sold. Considering the current Palm Beach real estate market circumstances, you’d only be shooting yourself in the foot by not utilizing all the marketing venues available to you.
