Not a trend here! We are a football city and even though our Carolina Panthers didn't pass muster this year, we have Super Bowl parties all over the city. People are cooking up a storm tomorrow in preparation for the 6:30 kick-off!

Real buyers are buying as are real sellers who are selling.  This seems to happen each and every day.  Tire-kickers and lookie loos may have other thoughts.

We don't watch any TV in our home Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS with the exception of the local news so no recording devices are needed. If something really important came up I could possibly find a old VHS tape to put in.

The Internet, virtual tours, Matterport 3-D tours and Google Maps have eliminated the need for Open Houses. Buyers buy because the see it online, then call their agent for a private tour. Now I digress for high demand vacation communities where tourists drive the sales and new construction.

They are in fact purely to capture leads at the expense of the seller's home.

If you do not have big attendance and a great lead capture plan with exceptional conversion in the follow up, Open Houses are a complete waste of time.

If you are watching TV, I'd recommend doing so with friends at a sports bar or with family at're home .

pricing the property properly is the only help anyone needs.... there will be 40-50 people at an open house that's priced right....and offers to follow....

I did not know that tivo was still around.

As far as open houses, it generally depends on how hard I market the open house, most of mine are very busy.
