It depends on your market. Here in the Southern Berkshires, where most of our buyers are weekenders, open houses are not effective. Weekenders typically contact their buyer's agents before coming up, and appointments are scheduled. However, in the Central Berkshires, particularly in Pittsfield, where buyers are largely full-time, open houses on weekends are effective. Prospective buyers will stop in if the property is advertised.
Broker open houses are always effective, especially if you offer refreshments!

dark early. usually 12-4 1 - 4 or 2 - 5 often it depends on the availability of the agent holding the open house. There is really no set fixed best time, but most buyers will go browsing on Sunday afternoons.
Some agents like to have an open house also on Saturday afternoons.
Good Luck to you

HAVE THE MOST WONDERFUL DAY :)
If you are an agent, here are a few good days:
1.) Your Broker Tour days, in Silicon Valley, agents call other Brokers and Agents out on
a particular day for Every Town.
2.) The best time for Buyers is the weekend.
3.) Also it is not uncommon on a new listing to hold the property open on a Friday night.
This is a great question. I feel it depends on the time of year. Here in Bourne just before Cape Cod, a great time I find is Saturdays 12-3. People are out and about doing errands and will stop in if they see a sign or add it to their list of errands if they know there is an open house scheduled from seeing the advertisement. Sunday open house dates don't work as well for me because of football games, family time and gardening/clean up work on their current homes.
