Keep up with my upcoming open houses
under events on my facebook page. I hold open houses for others and will gladly represent the buyer on the purchase.
I also will hold open houses for those I am the listing agent for. In addition, those with an agent are welcome to come for a walk-through while it is open with their own agent (or without, but be sure to contact your agent if you come alone and are interested).


Including Open Houses in your Overall Plan is great for maximum exposure. It is time saving for all, and especially for those living in the home during the sell. When I list your home with me to sell it, I host the open house personally unless we agree otherwise. It also provides for an entire market plan within the overall marketing plan - more exposure. Depending on your personality and home accommodations, the open house can be simple with no treats, we can provide waters (especially on a hot day), or we can discuss other more elaborate arrangements.

I market the listing. I market the open house.
