Like I mentioned in my personal blog this morning, I generally hold open houses because my clients expect that service. It's an activity. A busy motion. An investment of time. And it's OK. Some areas of Sacramento attract a lot of buyers and other areas do not. Just depends where the home is located, demand for the neighborhood, lure of the property and whether there is a lot of traffic near by.
It's also a nice way to meet neighbors who might want to sell and to find buyers in their early stages of house hunting who might not have an agent. I've also sold homes right after an open house, but not every situation warrants an open house.
