I have been having some great open houses lately, they are definitely not a thing of the past! One thing I like to do is to highlight the features of the house... For example... if the house has a gourmet kitchen, ask the seller if you can host a cooking class in their kitchen to promote that specific feature of the house!
One thing I always tell my clients... "A house that doesn't show, doesn't sell"! But depending on the market and the region, I have seen that before.
I always recommend to my clients to do a "drive by" to see if they are even interested in a property, it's always helps my narrow down my search for the client and find them what they are looking for. It's saves everyone a little time. :0)
