The traditional time out here is Sunday from 1-4, however the scourge of saturday open houses has been becoming more and more popular.  Sadly, they are in addition to sunday ones.  Some realtors apparently have no life.

The most common time here in VA is Sunday 1-4. Some agents do 2 hour opens like Noon to 2, or 1-3. Others experiment with Saturday Open House Noon to 2. I figure a certain percenage go to church on Sundays, and seems that most people show up closer to 2;30-4 range when i've done them. On Saturday, kids have sports practices and games, so I think Sunday's are better if you're going to do them. Broker Opens are usually on Tuesdays Noon to 2:00.

Sunday 2:00 to 5:00 PM. The extra hour after 4:00 PM yields good traffic because buyers are done looking at all the open houses that shut down at 4:00 PM. They also have more time to experience the home because they're rushing to other houses.

Our video logs show 10PM at night is the peak time for the show and tell on demand. Limited 2 hour windows to see don't fit everyone's schedule. The videos make it open house for someone three times zones away, no matter what the weather or their location.

Depends on the PURPOSE of the open house.

For example if the PURPOSE is to get more listings, it should be an invitation only Friday evening open house.

If the PURPOSE is list building, another day and strategy will work better.

No Purpose for an open house is simply spending time. Spending that currency should be managed with real focus.

I will schedule one midweek within a day or two of listing and then in most cases Saturday 12-3 and Sunday 1-4.  We never plan anything immediately after an open house. As long as people are showing up, we stay. I've had some marathons and the results are good when we do.
