"Broker open-houses" are done during the week. In Holmdel they are on Thursdays, and in Middletown, they are on Tuesdays. The hours are usually 11AM-1PM. It is not unusual
for us in the industry to stop by "Public open-houses", mostly done on Sundays, for us to
see a home in person that we might not have gotten to see when the "broker open-house"
was done. Seeing pictures on the MLS is good, but we really need to see properties
in person, and these open-houses help us agents be more effective and serve
our clients much better.
However, I like to see the new inventory that is coming on the market so I can keep myself up to date and educated on what is happening in the areas so myself and some co workers will call to make appointments to view the homes so we can have the best information for all inquiries .
If so Mickey, I not sure the idea will work . . . simply because of today's high inventory, we often have more than we can actually attend available that are listed by fellow associates that a FSBO would not make the list.
The other way is a "Broker Open House". When an agent gets a new listing, they usually host a Brokers Open inviting agents from other offices to come & view the home. Middletown would be on a Tuesday & Holmdel would be on a Thursday.
Hope this answers your question.
