Public Open House Debate

I have always told my sellers that Public Open Houses were self serving for the Realtor and that it was not an effective marketing tool for them. I'm going to try going back to Open House for a while and see if I still feel the same.

Here's where I am this Saturday

Public Open House Debate Blog Transcription

Hey there! Rob Reynar here, just wanna have a quick discussion about some business changes that I'm making this year. It's kind of a change in philosophy for me, I've never been a proponent of the public open house. You know my thoughts are, it is really good for the realtor to pick up some leads, you know maybe get to know people in the neighborhood but it really didn't service the seller that hired me. So really I felt awkward about standing in someone's house for a few hours and using it as a sort of an open for business sign when they hired me to sell their house not other houses. So you know I've always been a little bit conflicted inside the business about the public open house and who it's really for. It's more for the realtor I find, than it is for the person who's in the house but I've noticed the heck of a lot more double ends lately and you know maybe that's coming from open house. So maybe there's a higher percentage of people now who are viewing these houses on the internet and then going out and seeing them on a Saturday afternoon. So, I'm gonna give it a try for a while. My first open house this weekend, 15 Heritage Hills, the listing is on my website so check it out. I'm gonna be there from 1 to 3. We'll see how it goes and will make open house a little bit more regular this year and see if maybe I've been wrong all this time. Love to hear your comments on the Public Open House, R-E-Y-N-A-R, Talk to you soon, buh bye!
