The Nosy Neighbor
Chances are good that you have heard of a nosy neighbor. People are naturally curious about things and other people’s houses tend to be at the top of that list.

Realtor Williamsburg VA Working for Clients
Many time Realtor Williamsburg VA will look at open houses to scout out potential houses for their clients. If the house seems like a good fit for one of their clients they will set up a time to bring their buyer back to look at the house during a private showing.
If the Realtor Williamsburg VA realizes the house isn’t a good fit for their client then they haven’t wasted the client’s time or energy looking at a house they will not be interested in.
If the seller talked with several real estate agents before deciding who to list with there is a chance that the agents who lost the listing may want to come through the house. They might have given the seller advice on what to do and want to see if they applied the advice or not.
People who have previously lived in a house are often curious to see what the house looks like now. An open house is a great time to take a look because there is no pressure and they don’t feel like they are taking advantage of an agent’s time because they are already at the house anyway.
While every seller wants to see a large amount of people come through their open house it is important to understand that not all of them will be interested buyers. There are many people that just enjoy looking at different homes and want to see what they look like. Some people will be interested buyers and others will have an agenda of their own.
