Open houses are a great way to show off your home to potential buyers. Imagine walking in to a house for sale that is filled with people oohing and ahhing over the features of the home. You would feel like this house must be a great opportunity, right? Open houses provide an atmosphere of desire and competition. And they make showing your home much more convenient – you know exactly when you’ll need the house ready and when people will be there. Your listing agent should provide a schedule of open houses that best exposes your home to the market.
