Sunday is for Open House

by Maureen McCabe on October 21, 2007

open house signSunday is still for Open Houses in Columbus. Many housing markets in the US just don’t do open houses anymore. You hear, “the open house is dead. R.I.P.”

The open house is alive and well in Central Ohio.

Real Living HER’s Open House List has over 300 properties advertised this week. As this post ages… that link will reflect current scheduled open house lists not the Sunday, October 21, 2007 list…because really who cares what was open?

Members of the Columbus Board of Realtors, (I am one…) have access to a list of all open houses submitted to the MLS. The only problem with that list is most agents do not put their listings on that open house list. For example in homes in the price range $400,000 to $500,000 (my listing I am holding open this week is in that price range so I looked) there are only 6 homes listed as open, four of those are Real Living HER agents listings. Those homes are also on the list of open houses you as a consumer can search yourself, via the link to Real Living HER’s Open House list.

I email my clients the open houses that appear on the MLS list so that they can see what is available and attend open houses if their schedule allows. With the Real Living HER list, the public is free to visit at all times for lots of information about the homes that will be open.

The house I am holding open is in Golf Woods in Powell, Edit Link Removed, I am no longer marketing the property. East of Sawmill Parkway north of Seldom Seen Rd. and south of Rutherford Rd, great map on the open house site or the Link Removed link to get you there if you are unfamiliar with the Powell area.
