Raveis is having an "Open House" weekend, with the goal of getting as many agents out doing open houses today as possible. Some agents are doing them back to back to fit in more than one! It gets our signs out and hopefully, will motivate buyers to see lots of houses today.
April was Open House" month" for Century 21 it said in their advertising. The company did tons of open houses over the course of the month.
I realize it's officially "the spring market" and I also know that there are lots and lots of sellers whose homes have not moved or had much traffic over the past few months. Do you think that Open Houses are really valuable? For whom? The agent or the seller? Do you think these blast strategies of tons and tons of Opens are bringing out more buyers, who wouldn't ordinarily come out?
My 2 cents? I have sold homes from buyers who came to Open Houses...but not many. It may very well be different in the market we're in now.
