I prefer Saturdays, Barbara but, like you, it leads to that sale and more business quite often.

Strategies come in lots of flavors. As for open house events Sunday is a favorite followed by the Saturday/ Sunday double scoop. Occasionally you can see a Saturday only event. In our area broker caravan events have morphed into prospective buyers attending with or without their agent. 31 Flavors? Not quite but close it seems. When they are well-received, any flavor is awfully delicious.

Sunday is the more productive day when we hold Open Houses. The standard here used to be to schedule them for 2 hours in the afternoon. We are now noticing that many are scheduling them late mornings for 1 1/2 hours.

Loving that the last 12 years of never working a Sunday. I kick ass 6 days per week, so I do not need to work on the 7th. God didn't, so who am I to question Him?! Sundays are down tools and recharge the batteries with family, friends and Mother Nature for this entrepreneur.

Wishing you and your team a successful Sunday Open House.

 

Open House for me is when someone wants to see a property...then it becomes a one-hour impromptu open. I actually have one today and it happens to be Sunday.

Sundays are generally filled with plenty of church activities so I like to keep the Opens to Saturdays.

And yes, they are always effective.

Having been active over the years in several markets, some markets are business generators for open houses and some are just full of lookie-lou"s! If it works fine, if not don''t waste your time.

Nice.

Sunday's are the best in my opinion although several agents from our office have open houses on other days as well including weekdays from 4 to 6 to catch folks on their way home.

I virtually never do open houses... in the past couple of years virtually all of my listings sold before an open house could be held. And I also have quite a number of clients who said upfront they did not want to have open houses for security reasons.
