I held an open house Sunday. Maybe you haven't heard, but it's hot here, really hot. I wondered if anyone would brave the heat and use $5 a gallon gas to see my listing at 2321 Chelsea Rd. in Palos Verdes Estates, CA. Even though it is only one block from the ocean, with no breeze blowing the house was hot---sweat-through-your-blouse-hot!
With my iced tea slushy stowed in the Sub-Zero I prepared to soldier on. Hey, I'm not the type of agent to close early or cancel out on a scheduled commitment!
The people trickled in. The sweat trickled down my back. Nine groups attended. I met some really nice people. There were curious neighbors and serious buyers. There were also some professional lookers and out-of-state visitors. As I pulled the open house sign from the yard, I was pleasantly surprised with the results. I left with two prospective buyers' information, and I believe a couple of showings will be generated as a result of holding the open house. Not bad for a hot Sunday afternoon.
I stopped by my office to write a counter offer, and cool off. I also checked in on Active Rain. Hmm, what's this? There it was, a contact from a consumer inquiring about property in Palos Verdes. During the open house a past client called with a referral. A trickle here, a drip system there; a SOI, an open house; a blog, a blitz; a referral, a relocation; it's all good!
All those trickles keep the pool of prospects overflowing.
