Confessions of a Real Estate Agent:

Open Houses: a Poaching Tool
“If I were selling my own home, I would do an open house to get everyone in and out the door at the same time for convenience sake. But some realtors will hold open houses for the purpose of getting clients. Typically, agents that do open houses are either newer agents who need to find clients, or they do it because it’s what the seller wants,” says Sara.
