Many buyers today enjoy starting their search by perusing Open Houses. It's a great introduction to a neighborhood and different styles of homes. Open houses can occur during the week or on the weekends. More commonly today, they are advertised online rather than in expensive, localized print media. In fact, one of my most recent sales occurred because one of our service members, serving in the Horn of Africa, saw an open house announcement online.
If you would like to be notified of open houses fitting your parameters, send me an email, and I'll program an automatic notification to be sent to you whenever open houses are scheduled.
