Funny side story about open houses: I held a couple weeks ago during the Bengals-Browns game and had 8 qualified buyers come through... OUCH! What's that say about state of our state's professional football teams?
Say what you will, but open houses aren't designed to actually sell homes. A few sell via open houses but read the articles. Open houses attract unrepresented buyers but normally do not sell homes.
Now, would that buyer have seen your home eventually if it was not at the open house? There is really no saying....some people/buyers LIKE to go to open houses and may not have gone with an agent.
I do think that Cindy brings up a good point about the risks associated with open houses and it is something to weigh when determining if you want your agent to host one.
