The Pro's and Con's of an Open House in Real Estate
This is always a highly debated topic in real estate.

Why? There is a big difference in who benefits the most from an open house the seller or the Realtor holding it.

Are open houses necessary to sell a home? Of course not! It is a 2-3 hour window where people can view a home. There are many hours every other day these same people can view the home as well.

Some real estate agents however will claim they are the best invention since peanut butter and jelly. Why? They are great for capturing prospects! A Realtor doesn't need to sell the home when they are attracting other potential buyer and seller clients that visit.

There is a very low percentage of people who ever buy from an open house. REAL buyers always schedule showings for properties they want to view.

From a sellers perspective the chance of theft is real. Take a look at +Kyle Hiscock article sharing the pro's and con's and make sure you check out some of the open house references he has linked to in the article.

As a Realtor myself, I know what to look for in a top notch real estate agent. Lynn has all of those qualities including drive, honesty and knowledge. Having known Lynn for the last few years it has been great to work with her on a couple of referrals. In fact one recent referral is still in the process of working with her right now and has nothing but good things to say. If you are looking for an excellent real estate agent in the Coral Springs area make sure you give her a call.
