Here’s a question that was recently posed to me.
Do Broker Wine & Cheese Social Open Houses help sell my property?
Watch this short video for an honest explanation:
When you are listing your home, you want as many people through your doors as possible right? So it should be safe to assume that having your Realtor® put on a broker wine and cheese social open houses should help bring more buyers into your house.
The truth however, is that ‘broker opens’ as we call them, do little to nothing to sell your house!
If a real estate agent has a buyer that is looking for homes for sale and your home meets their criteria, that agent will put them in their car and take them directly to your house whenever its convenient for the buyer.
It’s not like it was in the old days when home buyers went to their agent to start their homes search. Instead, home buyers are using the internet and they will usually pick out the homes they like long before they even speak to their real estate agent.
It takes time and effort to put together these ‘broker opens’, and honestly that time and effort is better spent in other ways.
I’ll continue to ‘shoot it straight’ and answer your questions no matter how controversial they may be.
