Open Houses - a sign of the times
If you've been out on a Sunday in our area, you've probably noticed the abundance of "open house" signs. Yes, just a "sign of the times" as the real estate market has changed, and property marketing strategies must also change. Last year, only a fraction of properties would have an open house. In fact, in our area we've also begun to see Saturday open houses, though not as popular as the traditional Sunday open house.
Look for this trend to continue, as marketing time increases and exposure in the marketplace is key to selling a property.
