What a Great Open House on a Saturday Morning - 307 W Santa Cruz Tempe

What  a great turn-out we had at the open house in 307 W Santa Cruz Dr. Tempe AZ yesterday.

I was a little hesitant about the hours of 10am-12 noon on a Saturday, but trying them encouraged me to plan for more open houses on a Saturday morning.

The home is a move-in ready, lovely 3-bedroom, 2-bath rancher with a sparkling pebble tec pool and spa, pretty desert-landscaped front and back yard and a carport for two cars plus extra parking for a boat, RV, or a third vehicle. Price is $310,000.

It was a pleasure to speak with the neighbors who stopped by - some of them were renting, and enjoyed learning about the lender product for 100% financing; other neighbors had lived in the neighborhood since the 90-ies - they had a fascinating story about how the neighborhood has changed and what had not changed over the years. I also learned and saw photos about how a neighbor had transformed his home of the same floor plan - they wanted to have a bigger master bathroom and had taken some of the plentiful living-room space to add to a spa-like, spacious master bathroom. Now, that they showed me the photos on their phone, I was thinking, yes, that's how it can be done - the living room space was right behind the master bathroom and master bedroom closet space, and it was a fairly easy project to move a wall and increase the space for the master bathroom.

I hear at presentations and from statisticians that about every day 200 people move to the Phoenix metro area  - it was also great to hear it from a person who works in the staffing industry how busy they are. We both agreed that if somebody was paying more than $1,500 per month for rent, maybe it was time for them to get pre-qualified for a loan with a lender. 

The open house visitors brought so much good energy to the open house on this warm, sunny October morning; now I am excited, too, and starting to consider doing in the future more 2-hour open houses on Saturday mornings.

If you would like to view this home, I am only a phone call away - 480-966-9353.

I'm glad you had a good turnout at your Open House, Steffy.  I've held homes open with those hours in the past, and had reasonably good luck.

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat , I think the length of 2 hours is just enough for a Saturday morning.

I am glad you had a great turnout for your open house!  When do you usually conduct your open houses?  I have always thought that between 10 a.m. and Noon or good hours for an open house on a Saturday.

Hi Brian England , I usually do the open houses on Sunday from 1pm to about 4-4:30pm. I am glad that you are confirming that Saturday morning works for you, too. I may start doing more on Saturday mornings.

I love this and am so glad that I saw this post, Steffy! I debated about hosting a twilight event on Friday or a Saturday morning open house event and opted for the Friday evening. I was worried that Saturday morning wouldn't bring buyers through. Next time, I'm going to give that a whirl. I hope how soon you get an Offer on this one!

Hi Debe Maxwell, CRS , I think I will try the Friday evening open houses this month, or early next year when the days get longer.
