Bone Realty provides visual tours for all the residential listings. This way a potential buyer can look inside and out of the home at their own convenience and see whether or not they would like to schedule an appointment to see the home in person. It is used not only as a sales tool but it saves the seller time and money by not showing it to tire kickers or people who may say they don't like the home on the inside. It also serves as a safety tool to only allow qualified buyers into your home.
I know this post is older, but I would like to answer as I see no local agents have helped you.
I personally do open houses, myself. I am not sure why more do not anymore, but I do like doing open houses. I also supply cookies and punch at my open houses and help sellers with making their home look the best for showing.
I would be happy to help you further if you are still in need. My contact information is listed here on Trulia.
Best of luck!
