MLS, Zillow, Trulia, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, emails, etc. Someone in our area made a Facebook page for Richmond VA Open Houses and we can all post our Open Houses on it for the weekend. Although the page hasn't taken off yet, I think it would with the right promotion of the page itself.

Yes we do...But we are not allowed to put our names on the Open House.

Do not want to advertise that we are female and alone waiting on anyone that comes through the door.


It is a bit scary at times..

My brokerage advertises in in the open house directory. I also make sure to put it in MLS so that it gets picked up but other IDX feeds such as redfin, zillow, etc. On my website and here on Activerain as well.

Ginger Harper how interesting! It does have sense.......I used to have many open houses, sometimes up to 4/week ( different properties and time).

I'm going to do it right now with my listing: MLS announcement, AR blog post, spreading to Google+, FB pro pages, Twitter, LI, ( with additional reminding one day before OH),  fliers for OH, posts to community announcement boards( this one is in gated community), many OH signs with information about OH +optional: fliers invitation on the door steps( if it is a first OH), email blast to realtors, etc.

Thanks for the input.  I am thinking about doing an open house soon and wanted to hear what people had to say.

I have tried all methods to make open houses work, but they just don't in my market.

Great question.  I'm not a real estate agent and I'm sure you'll get some great input from them.  But, I have noticed a bunch of them advertise on here by writing blog posts.  Also, I believe there is a whole crowdsourcing post and webinar on that topic from a year or two ago.  You may want to do a search within AR.
