I just acquired a listing that had been on the market for over a year with another agent. One of my first steps when listing a property is to ask the owner if I may host a broker's open house. I serve lunch and advertise in our local real estate exchange. I also email or text agents as a reminder of the event.
I had an great turnout and most of the agents had not seen the property prior to attending my open house. The feedback was constructive and conversations around the lunch table were informative.
My question is do most agents host broker's open houses in your area? If so, do they ask a mortgage representative to attend or a title company to sponsor? Are they well attended and is the feedback from other agents constructive?
