open houses


We do open houses for all of our new

listings. Just to be clear open houses are optional and always have been. The purpose of open houses is certainly to show your home to the general public who can't get to a house during the work week. It also is 

certainly a good opportunity for the potential buyer who doesn't have an agent who can show them the property.


We advertise our open house dates on the MLS, our Right at Home Realty brokerage website, my website, various websites, and social media as

well. Signs are posted at

intersections leading to the

property. Invitations are

handed out to the immediate

area residents. With the right

property and scenario, I will

do a neighbours-only open

house. To be honest, it's there for neighbours to get an early jump on viewing the property before the      weekend to let any other people know about it. Keyword...early.​​​


                                             The hidden truth is that                                                   quite frankly open houses                                               are good for the agent as                                                 well. It gives me the                                                         opportunity to meet other                                               possible sellers (your                                                         neighbours) and meet the                                               potential buyers, whether they want to buy that current listing or not. It's a fact so that is something to consider when opting to have open houses for your property.


Some do but most homes

don't sell via an open house

and that's a fact that needs to

be mentioned. I've already

listed the pros for you the

home seller and me the realtor,

but what are the cons?

It's very simple, a disruption to your lifestyle by having to leave the house every weekend for the open house, keeping the house in pristine condition etc.


What I do is collect the information of visitors that come through your home for security purposes and also follow up with them to get valuable feedback so we know what people think about your property.

After every open house, I also send an email and text message to the information left with an open house website link.

The home seller gets a follow-up with feedback given to them as well. This is very very important feedback to find out what people think about their home and to adjust

accordingly whether it be pricing

or home decor etc. etc.

After seeing many homes during

the afternoon, it's easy for buyers

to confuse one home with the

other so the email and text is a

gentle reminder (with a  link like

the sample below included) about

your property and why they

should consider it.
