Why don't all sellers have open houses?
There are some homes that I see for sale that I want to see on an open house...
Some sellers appreciate that they only want qualified buyers looking at their homes under the supervision of a licensed real estate broker. An open house is just that - open to the public regardless of whether someone is really in the market to buyer a home. They might just be looking at the decorating, or something as unsavory as casing the place for bad things.
Primarily open houses are done for the benefit of the broker holding the home OPEN. It is an opportunity for them to meet and greet the neighbors, prospective buyers and perhaps even prospective sellers.
So, if you ever see a home that you are interested in viewing, and you are in the market to buy and are prequalified...don't be afraid to contact a real estate professional and get a personal tour.
