For those of you that know me, know how much I dont like Open Houses - Traditional Sunday Open houses that is to sell Pasadena Homes.

They are misleading to the seller.

The secret that most Pasadena Real Estate Agents do not want you to know is that Open Houses DO NOT SELL homes- period!




Pasadena real estate agents hold open houses because its an opportunity to pick up home buyers and potential home sellers. Theres nothing wrong with that as long as home sellers are aware that selling their home due to holding it open is very, very low!

Do all Open Houses not work? NO

There are Open Houses that truly help to sell homes. They are:

  • Brokers Open House - it gives an opportunity for top Pasadena real estate agents to preview your home. Great exposure!
  • Neighborhood Open Houses - who better than to help you sell your home than your neighbors. Holding a Twilight Open House and inviting neighbors with a special invitation for an exclusive preview is very powerful. Usually, people that live in the neighborhood know someone who wants to live in the neighborhood.
  • First Weekend Open Houses - after your Pasadena home has been exposed to your neighbors and top real estate agents, holding it open the very first weekend after listing will give an opportunity for real estate agents to bring their clients or neighbors to tell their friends and family of a great opportunity.
