Open houses are a great way to build your real estate business. Not only can you hold open houses on the weekends, daily open houses can help you find buyers and sellers. Open houses will give you exposure in your community.
Planning is the key to a successful open house. I have found that walking the area and passing out open house invitations may increase the attendance of your open house. Neighbors may have friends or family who may be interested visiting your open house. Also, putting open house announcements on Craigs List, Trulia and other internet locations may bring in more people for your open house.
Provide a list of other homes for sale at your open house to help you build a relationship with clients. Open house visitors will stay longer at your open house the more information you have available. Provide a sign in form to capture their clientâ€™s contact information including their e-mail address so you can follow up with the clients. Write a thank-up note or send an e-mail thanking the people who visit your open house to help clients remember you.
Open houses are great way to meet people in your community. Hope you have success at your open houses.

Your first question needs to be, "Are you currently working with an agent to find your new home?"
Don't spend any time with those who say, "Yes."
When they leave, don't miss the opportunity to ask, "Do you know anyone thinking of selling their home?"
Hint: It may be them.
In MD, when having an open house we have to have it for the purpose of the brokerage representing the seller. However, i have had met quite a few potential buyers.
It's snowing up here now so I am going to put a hold on open houses for a while.
