I did when I starte out but eventually learned it wasn't my time.
I have found that open houses during the week are more productive. Someone in the office do one during the week and they said some people that came through said they were so happy to see an open house during the week so they didnt have to burn up a weekend viewing them. Especially the people on vacation.
I haven't held an Open House in 10 years.
Kristin, we do not hold open houses on holidays or on Purdue University home football game days in the Fall.
I DO NOT.
However, big sports days that others suggest should be avoided, have proven to be incredibly benefical.
Never. I would never even schedule one for an assistant as I believe in time off
I don't hold them in general, but on a holiday, absolutely not. Sellers deserve "time off," I deserve "time off," and buyers are typically also focused on holiday events.
Good morning Kristin. I rarely see open houses on holiday weekends. I think everybody needs to have at least one day off. And with so many people being out of town it makes having an open house pointless.
I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day with the ones you love. I would not hold an open house on a holiday.
It depends on the holiday. Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter.....NO
Mothers Day, Memorial weekend, Independance day, labor day weekend are all good days for open houses.
NO....I seldom do open houses period
Yes, some holidays depending on how I feel the market is and sometimes I will have the Open House on the Sat. of a holiday weekend.
it depends on what the holiday is....the answer is NO for christmas and easter.... but we will for other holidays....
No and I don't hold open houses anymore. It proved not to work for me. I know agents who do and they like them. But no, no open houses at any time...
I don't pick up hitchhikers and I don't do open houses.
No, I don't, Kristin. Typically these are not good days for open houses for me.
Yes, I do. But only if I have my listing. I like Holidays open houses:)
Happy Easter to all!
No. I have found better results picking a non-holiday weekend. I need to learn to not WORK on holidays too :)
What's an Open House? Oh wait I will just Google it!
Holiday open houses are not usually effective in our market. Your time may be better spent with buyer prospects.
No. And I think the general public respects us more for it. Time for family time, not for the almighty dollar.
