Impromptu Open House... Today Saturday July 23 at 1:00 PM ... 8820 Greens Lane, Randallstown, MD 21133

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with HomeRome Realty 410-530-2400 311291

Since there is a scheduled showing on my new listing... I have decided  to have an impromptu open house today at 1:00 PM  at  8820 Greens Lane 5 Bedroom Rancher in Fieldstone Area of Randallstown, Maryland 21133

This one has beautiful curb appeal and shows pride of ownership. This is such a special stone home and was built to last. Four bedrooms on the first level with a sunken living room, formal dining room and a wonderful country kitchen that overlooks the level back yard.
Gigantic lower level with another master bedroom, full bath and rooms for all your entertaining needs. Level walk out to back yard and an abundant amount of parking.  Here is another look  at Greens Lane.

When someone calls and asks when will there be an Open House. My reply : When would you like it open?

 This sign is always in my car. So when  showing any of my listings...it is not unusual for me to place this open house balloon sign.  It can go right on the post sign, it can be staked in the ground or I can even place it in the back window of my car. Never again do I blow up balloons or drive (in danger) with a car full of balloons.

I can see keys exchanging hands quickly with this listing. So glad Dan and I could stop by. The lower living area is just wonderful, pool table and all. Jim W.

Dennis, Just think how many more opportunities if you had an open sign,

William, Good way of looking at things.

Michelle, It maximizes the opportunity.

Barbara, I put 1-2 in the MLS. Was not sure how long I would be there. The timing was perfect. Four groups through in less than an hour.

Captain Wayne, Thank you, Sir.

Ellie, The house was a delight. I have great sellers.

Sally, It was just right...and it was a scorcher today.

Gail, AC was in fine order. Miss you too.

Kathy, I mean it. When do you want it open?

Kevin, We can say that about lots of things.

Evelyn, Thanks for stopping by.

Jimmy, What a nice surprise to see your comment. What a nicer surprise to see both of you at the house. You made my day. 

There is some interest. We will wait and see.

Margaret, how was it?

I will have one such 'improptue' open house tomorrow - sort of inspired from your post. Though it will not be exactly that way, as I had announced in MLS - and almost cancelled it - unless a colleague accepted the request to host it. No ad - nothing so far -and that's why I'd call it improptue - let's see how it turns out to be.

Open Houses do work, at least for meeting future buyers.  I love the sign and have the same one.

Praful,

It went really well. I will be doing a follow up post. Had three agents with buyers  plus Jimmy and Dan (see comment 12 and 13) who bought my listing about 10 days ago.

Thank goodness for AC..it was over 100 degrees!

This all  happened in less than an hour.

Look forward to hearing about your open house tomorrow. Hope you find the right buyer.

Chris,

I just sent you an email.

I just googled 'balloon signs' and this website came up...they are really inexpensive and easy to carry around

Hi, Margaret:  I don't know how many more  could've handled!  I had the tenants there and trying to finish packin and moving, all of the prospects to deal with- PLUS all of this was in a driving rainstorm that had parts of town getting inches in an hour.  I had to tell some folks where to park, and others where to dock!

Cute...park some and dock others.
