I usually do open houses on Sundays and take Buyers out on Saturdays. I used to get an average of 5 prospective buyers attend open houses last year .This year it is 2. I was wondering what kind of turnout agents get at open houses in other parts of the country. Do you have suggestions for increasing the turnout?
At first I thought it is because of high price of gas, that people are not driving to open houses just for looking. If it is gorgeous day, fewer people attend because they might be going to the shore in the summer. If it rains people do not want to go looking at houses. But these things did not matter a few years ago. I post my ads in the newspaper and in the multiple listing and inform the neighbors.
Are there any internet sites for open houses?
When you read about events please check the year for the event as some people find information a year later and think it is for that year. . The posts remain online even after the event.
