When I started in real estate, 1998, I was a full time cop. There were issues that came up from time to time when agents were hosting open houses. Mostly due to to the agent not being diligent and unaware, or GREEDY, of what could happen, when they leave a home they are hosting open(open and unlocked) to show a potential client a neighboring “for sale” property. Yes, I took many a report back in the day when I was a full time LAPD cop.
We don’t do our open houses that way. We want to make sure our sellers are well protected. While, at a busy open house, it’s not possible to watch everyone 100%, we do greet everyone who enters as if they are needing to be on their best behavior. That command presence does wonders to let those “suspicious” characters know that “we will be watching…”
Open houses, by statistical info, do not sell homes at more than a 1% rate. That’s 1 out of 100 homes, which are being held open, will sell due to the open house to someone who walked in the door and wanted to buy it.
However, there is great exposure associated with them and that is why I built this system, Santa Clarita Open Houses and why we talk about the way in which my RE/MAX Team has become known as the “Santa Clarita Open House Team” or SCOHT…
