Home Selling Advice - Open Houses

What are open houses and will they help you sell your home.

Open Houses

Open houses can generate a lot of traffic but rarely result in the sale of your home. In fact they are far more beneficial for the Realtor than the home seller. This is because the Realtor can use them to market the area, meet the other locals and potentially gain other listings.

One thing a open house is good for is word of mouth advertising. Some of your neighbors living in the area may look round your home and then tell other people about it.

Open houses are usually held when the home is first put on the market but they can also be held at a later date. Often Realtors other than the listing agent will actually hold an open house, they do this to capture the buyers who visit.
