5 Truths About an Open House Your Miami Agent Won’t Tell You

by Isaac Benmergui, Esq on April 19, 2012

Many homeowners looking to sell their house believe an open house can sell their Miami area property faster than a simple listing. In reality, the only thing an open house usually accomplishes is curing the neighbors’ curiosity:

  • The open house usually benefits your agent more than you. Open houses generate leads on people looking for homes as well as people selling their homes. The agent might double their commission.
  • Due to widespread Internet access, most people prefer to look online rather than come to an open house, and your realtor may only see one or two people.
  • Curious neighbors will be the highest number of attendees.
  • Burglars use open houses to case a property, looking for expensive items.
  • Realtors charge a fee to conduct an open house, separate and apart from their commission when the house sells.

If you’re looking to buy a home in the Miami area, you’ll need an attorney to ensure you receive clear and free title at closing.
