Many agents are quick to dismiss Open Houses believing they are used more to generate buyers for the agent than actually selling a home that is Open. Over the last couple of years we can point to open houses being the reason the majority of our listings have sold. With 93% of buyers looking on line and many of them not having an agent, many turn up at an Open House to check out a listing they have seen on line. Often they already know of an agent, or have been reccomended and agent by a friend, so this is not a matter of acting as a dual agent but helping our listing client have their property seen by the most potential buyers.
I have also noticed over the last year, that many agents are not holding a Broker's Open preferring to just hold Public Open Houses at weekends. Again this reflects the greater use of the internet by buyers today.
So, today we have two homes open to the public. One is in Paoli on Foxwood Lane. 528 Foxwood Lane is an end unit town home, on four levels, it has a finished walk out basement with lots of storage space as well, and a finished loft area that is the fourth bedroom or could be used as a home office. The main floor has a den, living room and dining room and kitchen with a powder room, all arranged well for entertaining allowing a good flow for guests around the space. The second floor has three bedrooms, one with an ensuite bathroom and walk in closet, and also has a laundry area making it convenient not having to carry laundry up and down the stairs. This home is in the Tredyffrin Easttown School district and is close to downtown Paoli with grocery stores, restaurants and coffee shops, Amtrak and Septa R5 station for access to Philadelphia and New York and Washington.
