Open houses are an excellent option regardless of whether you’re buying or selling a home. For those who are buying, open houses give you convenient access to a property that interests you. You don’t need to go through the back and fourth that can sometimes result from trying to schedule a viewing time. Oftentimes, open houses will happen on the weekends, when most people have more time to devote to viewing properties.
If you’re selling your home, an open house is an excellent way to promote your property and provide potential buyers with a much more accessible option for viewing your home. Also, with the right advertising, you can see more buyers view your home in a single day with an open house than you could in a single month through scheduled, private viewings.
