Select a proper house for the open house.

Staff. More that three.

Clearly defined purpose.

Here's the log in from a previous open house.

It really depends on the house, the weather, the market, the area and if it is the first open house or not.  So many different variables.

You can have a hot open house one week and the same house can be a dud the following week.

I put up as many signs as I see fit to bring in traffic.  I do not provide food or refreshments, except for brokers opens and I typically don't do that on homes below $1 million.  In my market, that price point is where expectations change and you need to "kick it up a notch."

No such thing as average.

We typically put up 5-8 signs plus a large flag on the front lawn. We bring comparable property sheets, sign in forms, sometimes bottles of water or snacks, branded pens or notepads.

But the number of people varies widely from 0 to 50. No rhyme nor reason. The same house can get no one the first week and 50 people the next week. We can get zero people at one house and 50 people at another house on the same day.

Good morning Chris. About a week of preparation before we do any open house, so almost all of them are very successful.

Make it a great week!

The Agent you choose REALLY does make a difference

Activity has been down here in my market through the summer, though with activity picking up, I think Open House attendence will as well.  This is how I started my business - hosting open houses to meet prospective buyers.  New agents should make this a major thrust in their outreach.

 Good Monday morning Chris. One would think that the number of signs would very by the community and the subdivision.
