Another lonely open house.
I am a big believer in open houses. I get a chance to meet potential clients each time I set up. Open houses are a big part of my listing presentation as well. I promise my sellers that I or another agent from my office will sit their home atleast twice a month. Sellers in Wildwood like this. During the summer months, you are guaranteed to have people who are strolling down the street stop in and have a look around. Even off season, weekends tend to bring people back down the shore and there is rarely a time when you sit by yourself in an open house - until recently that is. My last two weekends have been empty. Not one person stopped in to see the unit. I had myself in a busy area - had plenty of signs out to direct traffic- had a beautiful sunny day - and nothing. This is so frustrating. I wish the word would spread that now is the perfect time to buy property. Rates are down, inventory is high and prices have reached the bottom. Will I stop sitting open houses? No way. Will I remember to bring something to read? Absolutely!!
