Yesterday I held a lovely Open House at my Royal Lakes listing in Richmond, TX. There were some wonderful people who came through to "take the tour". Many of them were just out driving and saw the signs and decided to take advantage of this opportunity to walk the inside of a 7,600 SF home. I don't mind at all. It's good company and you never know who may have a friend who might be looking for something like this. I had a couple stop in once and tell me that they were just looking for decorating ideas for the new home they were building. Not your perfect open house visitor in terms of selling the home - but on the upside, when I asked who was listing that home, they didn't have anyone and I'm supposed to get the house on the market for them in the upcoming weeks. On the other hand, I also had a traveling minister and his "helpers" and their 8 kids stop in once and lay hands on me and pray over me so that I could have a happy life! So, I suppose you never know who is going to walk through that door when you hold an Open House!
