I orefer not to do open houses for the majority of listings. They work well for new construction and condo listings though for lead generation. If i have an open house, 2-4 on Sat or 2-14 on Sunday in winter (non football season) and early spring

Hi Praful -- it depends.

Often I will plan the first showings of a property around an Open House event and it will be extended hours on a Sunday 12-5PM(usual times 2-4).   It needs to be coordinated with lots of signing and on/offline marketing.  I've had people waiting for the open house to begin.

I also will hold Saturday open houses(typically not as large a draw)when the property is newly listed as well as using weekday broker caravans/tours as opportunities to expose the property as an Open House event too.

I started my open house at around 1:00 today and I was planning to close at 4:30.

My policy is to stay until people stop showing up.  Unfortunately, that kept me there until about 7:00 tonight, which is not at all typical.  

I don't think there's any ideal time for an open house.  Show up and the people will come as long as you have good signage.

1-4 Sunday seems to be the most popular. But if Redskins are playing that Sunday, it's best to do them on Saturday or not at all.

The local practice here in Northern VA is Sunday from 1-4pm, though some agents do 1-3pm or 2-4pm, but almost always Sundays.  I have tried Saturday opens and they just don't get the same traffic, since people are conditioned to having them on Sunday afternoon.
