LIFE AS A REALTOR – Realtor Open House Day

Theraputic Horse FacilityEvery Wednesday is Realtor Open House Day here in Putnam County, New York.  As a Realtor, Open House day is informative and fun!  We view new listings and meet each listing agent.  We also have the opportunity to get to know the area the home is located in and network with other agents.

Viewing my office’s own listings is important for us to be prepared for buyer calls.  It is impossible for a listing agent to input every bit of information about a home into the listing sheet.  Therefore, the listing agent shows us around, pointing out updates and facts about the home.  This also helps if your an agent searching for a buyer who is viewing homes on line, viewing photos is never the same as actually being in the home – especially if there are little or bad photos! 

Agents will host their Realtor Open House by serving lunch, dessert or give a bottle of wine.  They also pass out a listing sheet on the property and answer any questions that we may have.

On our last Open House day, we had beautiful weather and I was able to take of few photos on our journey from one house to another.  This photo was taken at Pegasus Farm – a Therapeutic Horse Facility in Brewster, NY.  The other Realtors watched – and laughed –  from the car as I attempted to take this photo – this cutie was very big and very intimidating!
