Are they worth it?
But listing and selling houses via Open Houses has always been â€œmy thingâ€. I have provided some online training on the subject to agents around the Country, and still there are some agents who can honestly say that they have never sold a house from an Open House.
On average, public opens generate less than 2% in sales. In other words, less than 2% of the time a public open house sells the home to an open house visitor.
I tend to agree with Merv – Open Houses for Realtors are an excellent opportunity to market your listings to other Realtors – the ones who most likely will bring a buyer. Public open houses tend to attract nosy neighbors, career lookers and those who frequently have nothing better to do. However, I would love to be able to crack the nut the way Ardell has.
