William's Blog...with a smile!


You're not doing an open house...are you?

I was doing a market on a new listing.

It was going very well as we talked also about the marketing...

When all of a sudden the seller asks...

You're not going to do an open house ...are you?

I replied not if you don't want me to.

We really would prefer if you don't.


That was just fine with me.   I was also told I had the listing, but I was not to put it into any Internet sight except for the MLS.


I hate how some sites lie about the property.


I really like these people...

I agree about the open houses, waste of time for the sellers normally. Disagree about limiting exposure to the MLS....so often buyers find their own homes online.

May not be a  big benefit for sellers,,But  as an agent I get the majority of my leads working an open house, so definitely a must for me,however,  you must follow the seller s wishes..

I don't do open houses even if the seller wants one ....They almost always go with me after I explain why ....I think you will love this listing William Feela

With so many people going through open houses and stories of thing being missing I can see why

Pretty hard to limit access of other sites when they have MLS access.
