OMG, NO..no, no, no.... you're there to promote and find the right buyer for that one listing.... if you want to follow up with the visitors about other homes AFTER the open house, that's reasonable and very acceptable.... NOT during the open house...

In Maryland you can not do that now. Agent sitting the Open needs to post a notice that they are the Seller's agent at the property, They can then discuss other area properties once the Open has ended.

ONLY IF I HAVE THE LISTING!!!  

 

If there are similar homes around, I'll have comps with me and someone who can break off and show the buyer the homes (after signing a BBA).  It may help sell the home I have (as the homes are my investor's and "like new" and well above the quality of other homes in the area). 

 

Plus, this is actually my investor's idea, so they're OK with it, even if it leads to "less competition."

In our area it is digital version, Redfin got all homes for sale, open houses on device level.

Lookers will need someone open the door and strike a deal with selling agent often.   I do show a few flyers and explain my listing is a good deal.  Buyer agent profession has been less meaningful in recent years.

No, we do not share flyers of other listings. We pass out flyers of the listing we are doing the open house for. We qualify those who want to come into the house. And we require their phone #, email address and an ID.  We ask them : 

Is your agent coming along with you to the open house? 

Do you have an agent representing you? 

Or Have you signed a buyer brokerage agreement with any agent to represent you as a buyers agent? 

98% of the time, the buyer has NOT signed a buyer brokerage agreement. 

If this is the case, that means they are not working with another agent. And we instruct our buyers agents to start working with the buyer and get them under a buyer brokerage agreement asap.
