I'm from the school of thought that open houses any Sunday are pretty much a waste of time. Better ways to (a) sell a home and (b) to find new clients.

No agent anywhere should unless they have a lead capture plan. Open Houses are a complete waste of time without a plan. Open Houses: since less than 3% sell homes; 100% should be focused on lead generation.

Why not?

Many will apprreciate the anti-bowl theme. These citizens have become punch-drunk with unrelenting kneeler BS. They NEED a diversion.

Besides the game and the open house will not share the same time-slot.
