Sellers at Open Houses
Quick tip: As a general rule of thumb… if you’re a seller and you decide to stay at the property while your agent is holding an open house, this is a no-no. Sellers~ It doesn’t matter who told you that you should stay, what the reasons were(“it’s good to stay at the open to see how the turn out is”, etc)- bottom line is it makes buyers uncomfortable. It ruins the aura and purpose of an open house, which is for buyers to browse properties at ease. I’ve held dozens of opens, and had only one where a seller stayed at the advice of a family member, and the difference in buyers’ demeanors was evident. Sellers, trust that your agent is doing their job promoting the open and get feedback and find out the results afterwards.
