Lunchtime Open Houses - Follow up!

Industry Observer

After last weeks blog about Lunchtime Open Houses (11-1 during the work week) I wanted to follow up with what I have learned.It has only been two weeks and eight hours of my time, but I am going to continue to hold Lunchtime Open Houses. And since I have sold all of my listings this year I am using fellow Realtor's homes open to find buyers !

  • First - more people are discovering them as I have had a 60% increase of web traffic looking for the open house information
  • Second- location makes a difference. If it is a desirable location the more people will come.
  • Third - I have gotten great leads, new buyers, and information on the neighborhoods where the houses are located by neighbors and other Realtors who have stopped by. 

 Plus, with wireless Internet I can work at a home just as well as sitting in an office! And still have time for afternoon appointments! All in all a win win situation as far as I am concerned!

AND sellers love the fact that I have started something new to try and find buyers in a market that they perceive is down.

I think that is a great idea! Even if it starts as a novelty thing for someone to do on their lunch break, you're generating interest and eyes on a property. Great way to think outside the box!
