I agree, many are looking, but you never know....many years ago (when married) my ex was a developer and had open houses both Sat/Sunday. We sold only on open houses, having one Broker sitting on houses, that was a different time, now pic's are on computer (Zillow), but you still have to see it. I'd rather know the day it will be shown and be out for a few hours then being bothered. Brokers have to call if they have a showing. I found this house looking at the models at their open house and bought it that day (17 yrs ago).@Jill_L wrote:
@Irene_L.A....I've bought two of my houses from going to their open houses. According to my realtor, it really doesn't happen often, only about 3% of the time. But since I'm sort of in the real estate biz., I make it my habit to go to open houses. So maybe since I go more often than most, I find what I'm looking for more often...dunno.
I had one where I had to cancel because we found a goat and a yorkie in the middle of the road right in front of my house. They were best friends and apparently, according to the owner, they liked to explore together.
