In Lexington, you stick out like a sore thumb if you do anything other than Sunday 2-4. My favorite day/time is actually Saturday (1-3) because people are out and about running errands already and they always stop by.

I like the traditional weekends from 1-4 pm, but I also switch it up and hold a Twilight Open House serving wine & appetizers. I find you get more local people/neighbors in the evening, but we are a resort/vacation community and they have lots of friends that would love to be owners.

When snowbirds are in town I do Open Houses 6 days a week, as older folks don't have to wait for weekends because of a way more flexible schedule.  When snowbirds are not in town, I do Open Houses 2 days a week, and they are strictly on weekends, as there isn't enough traffic on weekdays, with Sunday being 'the best day' between the two Donald Kolenda.  It is different in a regular family community, compared to an age-restricted community, which is our niche.

Each market is different.  And so is each agent.

I have done weekend open houses sometimes for two hours or as long as five.   I

n addition, I have held broker's caravan and invited the public(and treat as an open house).   So many different variables and attitudes when it comes to these events.
