Many people may wonder..Are Open Houses Worth It? If you are new in the real estate field you may want to know what an open house involves. An open house is a marketing tool that increases exposure of a property by allowing potential buyers tour the home during specified times. Open houses are usually done on the weekends without the seller being there. They can also be done during the week under special circumstances. The listing agent is usually available to answer questions about the home. This is the best time to really showcase the buyers home and give the potential buyer the opportunity to tour the house themselves. Attendees are asked to sign in on a sign-in-sheet in order to provide their contact information so the agent can follow up and provide feedback to the seller about issues that should be addressed to improve marketability.
