Hi Jac,there are two disadvantages to waiting for an open house. First the home may be gone by the time there is one, or the listing agent may choose not to have one at all. The second, and to my mind most important reason is that at an open house you are dealing with the listing, or seller's agent. That agent is representing the seller and his loyalty and fiduciary responsibility are to the seller, not you. If you tell the seller's agent "I'd like to make an offer of A dollars, but I'll go up to B dollars if necessary, that agent must inform the seller of what you told him and use the information to the sellers advantage. If you get a buyer's agent to arrange a showing that is convenient for you, the buyer's agent should be paid by the seller, and you can discuss strategy and get help making sound offers. The buyer's agent works for you, to me it's an easy decision. Good luck.

If your interest in the property is high, rather than waiting for an open house and added competition, why not simply schedule a private showing with an agent of choice...
