Are open houses really a thing of the past?My house has been on the market for a little over 3 months, and we are surprised that we haven't had a bite. My realtor said the house looks perfect and is priced fairly, but thinks there's just too much competition in my neighborhood. I suggested an open house and she really balked at it. She said she'd do as many as I liked, but said it wouldn't sell my home faster. She said they are unsafe and lead more to robberies than house sales. She also said we would need to remain there with her, if we did want to do one. She also wasn't available the weekend we were hoping to do one, and suggested we do it on our own, and she'd list it. I am willing to do what is necessary to sell my home, but wondered if it was worth my time, or recommended. Thanks for any input!
