Agent Open Houses – An agent open house is held soon after your listing commences. Especially for unique properties, this is an opportunity to show your home to realtors that may have buyers looking in your area. Agent open houses are generally held, depending on the area in which you live, in the morning from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. or 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Public Open Houses – My experience shows me that open houses are more important than ever. I recently heard that the average buyer spends 16 weeks looking at homes on their own before they go out with their realtor. This can be through on-line searches, MLS and by going to open houses. I have sold many properties as a result of public open houses. Open houses are generally held on a Sunday, but can also be on a Saturday, from 2:00 to 4:00. I advertise all of my open houses on openhouses.ca.
