There’s been much debate about whether open houses work and my answer is, “it depends”. Open houses may not work because of the location of your home or the competition in your market, but generally speaking, Open Houses also sell homes.
When is the Best Time for an Open House?
- In many communities, Sunday afternoon is best
- Two hours is typically the minimum, but some are held open four hours, for example, from 1 to 5 pm
- Make sure your Open House is scheduled to avoid conflicts with holidays, community celebrations or special events such as the Super Bowl
- Check the weather forecast, too, because cold or rainy days tend to make people stay home
Remember that each community in Canada is very different from the next. Contact me and I can help you figure out the best time for your open house.
