HAVE OPEN HOUSES BECOME A WASTE OF TIME???
So pretty much every realtor I have spoken to lately has said that open houses are simply a waste of time. Do you agree? This can be argued either way because some say that open houses are still a great way to meet buyers and promote your listings. Others cannot wait to find fellow agents to hold their opens for them (I am guilty of this). Holding my own listings open never used to bother me at all. I actually liked it in a way because I love people and what better way to interact with complete strangers :-) Lately, it seems as if every open house is dead! Maybe people are saving their gas or something, but the common tune I have been hearing lately is "open houses are a complete waste of time". Like a previous post I made in regards to flyer boxes, open houses are a necessary part of the listing process. Even if it may seem like the most unproductive 3 hours you have ever spent on a weekend, it is still necessary in my opinion.
