Open Houses in Sabino Mountain are Usually Well Attended

Some real estate agents do not like to hold their listings open in gated communities, but the ones I have held open in Sabino Mountain are usually well attended. I am sure one house I held open consummated in a sale that was unlikely to have occurred had I not held it open. The only added necessity when holding a house open here is the agent needs to put directions on the middle box in the island to go to whichever gate is the entry to the house for sale with directions to call the listing agent for the gate code. Then at the far right or left gate (according to which gate I guided the potential buyer to), I remind them again that they have to call me to get the gate code (if they have not already done so). They all seem to make it down to my open house. At the present time I recommend all houses for sale have at least one open house a month. In many areas of the country open houses are not frequently visited, but in Tucson where most agents holding houses open honor the buyers’ agent even if she or he is not in attendance, there are many potential buyers that come and preview the house. Since the open house might aid in a successful sale, agents should utilize this method to market the house if the Seller approves.
