An Upcoming Open House

Part of what I do as a Realtor is hold Open Houses.

Open Houses are one of those age old traditions in real estate that just don’t seem to want to die.  I think they started back in the pre-Internet, pre-Multiple Listing Services, pre-Buyer Agent days when about the only way people got to see the inside of homes was at an Open House.  People would comb through the Sunday classifieds and map out their own tour of homes and take a few hours to drive around various houses.  Sometimes they even found one they really liked and wanted to buy!

Nowadays, of course, there is the Internet, Virtual Tours, the Multiple Listing Service and Buyer’s Agents that are ready, willing and able to provide their own private tour of homes for their clients.  The Buyer’s Agents can access the house with a special card that will open the lockbox that has the key to the house in it. It can be Monday at 2pm, Thurday at 6pm or any other time.

Open Houses are great for the neighbors who might be interested in seeing what their neighbor’s home looks like and get decorating tips and the like.  Or they may just be curious to see if their own home might fetch the same price as the Open House. Or (and this is the big hope) they may know someone that is looking for a house in the neighborhood but isn’t working with a Realtor.  You never know!

So, tomorrow (Sunday, Septmeber 28th), I’ll be at 5918 Bryn Mawr Road in College Park from 12:00 (noon) to 3:00 ready to meet and greet the neighbors and anyone else who comes by in the hopes that one special person will see the house and want to buy it (or know someone who does).

You can get the details by point your mouse toward the top of the Page at the words “Featured Listing” and than click on “Open Houses”  (how easy is that!) or you can just — CLICK HERE.
