In San Jose, Cupertino and Saratoga, it seems that between 1-4, 1:30-4:30 and 2-5 on Saturday and Sunday are all good times. I've held afternoon open houses on high-traffic streets such as Bollinger, Johnson and Miller in San Jose with Lynbrook High.
I've also held sunset open house in early evening (5-8) for homes with views and/or beautiful sunsets.
There are various factors to take into account when scheduling an open house. Aside from marketing the event, you need to make sure that the weather is on your side that week, and it is a holiday free week.
It is usually best to conduct your open house on the weekend, when you will have a much more likely chance of attracting home buyers. Of course, a home that is priced right will sell quickly and will likely lead to a very successful open house!

If the home for sale is near a church have the Open house start 15 min before that church service ges out. But have your open house signs out one hour before the services begine.
