Open houses are a highly debated topic in real estate. Some will swear by them and others will say they are a complete waste of time.
As with everything, there are PROS and CONS to open houses. An example of a positive outcome from open houses is the opportunity for Realtors to pick up additional buyers. An example of a negative outcome is the possibility for theft.
My personal opinion is that open houses are a great opportunity for a newer agent just getting started in the business who is in need of picking up additional buyers. An agent who has proven results and experience does not need open houses to sell a home, there are many other ways to accomplish this goal.
