National Open House Weekend 2012
REALTORS across the country held their listings open to promote homeownership! There were more homes open today than any weekend of the year!
Did you attend one?
Did you buy one?
I’m starting to hearing the reports come in from my REALTOR friends across the country and they are fantastic!
Do you look for Open Houses on the internet or in the newspaper or just drive around and look for the signs? Many of them will have balloons on them!
Usually when you arrive at an Open House, you are greeted by the agent and then asked to sign in. Do yoiu know why they are asking you to sign in? Do you mind signing in?
How do you like to see the house? Do you like to wander through by yourself without being escorted by the agent? Or do you like having the agent take you through pointing out different aspects of the home to you?
Statistics show that only about 3% of buyers come from an Open House, so the motivation to hold them open is not to sell it but for other reasons. Those reasons are to meet and pick up new buyers or to satisfiy the sellers that the agent is working for them.
What are your thoughts on Open Houses, RochesterREguy would like to know?
