Is This the End of an Era

Is This the End of an Era

Look around you on any given Sunday. In the past you may have noted colorful signs with streaming ballooons adorning every street corner. Look around you lately, chances are you wont see nearly as many as you may have in the past.

Why?? Well, my friends the Open House is DEAD, long live the Virtual Open House. Dont get me wrong there is some value to a Public Open House. Especially with a brand new hot listing. It can provide additional exposure, easy access and a sense of urgency amongst the Buying Public.

However, more often than not it used as a vehicle to appease an unrealistic seller who feels like an Open House is what is needed to sell their house.

In this mobile, digital, youtube-facebook,google earth, zillow, multi media world we live in, practically every house is an Open house 24-7!!

So if you have a hot new listing, by all means an Open House can be valuable. If you are just appeasing a stubborn seller, you are probably just wasting your time!!
