The Truth About Who Attends an Open House

+Kevin Vitali took a close look at 15 groups of people who recently visited an open house. As he expected, only four of the groups were qualified buyers and they came with their agent. They would have scheduled to see the house even if it wasn't open.

Out of the remaining visitors, not one was qualified to buy. In his latest blog he discusses whether an open house will actually get your home sold. It's a must read before you clear out of your house on a nice afternoon so your agent can let a bunch of strangers in.

Will an open house really sell your home?

On a recent weekend I really scrubbed the buyers coming through an open house. I already had a good idea of what I already expected from years of experience.

Out of 15 groups of people coming thru 4 came thru the open house with their agent. These home buyers would have scheduled a showing irregardless off whether I had an open house or not.

The other 11 groups not one was qualified to buy. They were unqualified buyers deciding if they were going to jump into the market or sellers who were about to get their home on the market in the next couple of months and wanted to see what was out there or they were just plain curiosity seekers.

Out of that 11 not one was prepared to buy in the next 60 days. That certainly did not help out my seller who is looking to sell. Basically my seller opened up their home for people to use to gather information.

Also check out what +Bill Gassett, +Kyle Hiscock, +Debbie Drummond, +Dustin Brohm and +MarketWatch have to say about open houses in todays real estate market.
