Most Realtors hold an open house shortly after listing a home for sale. These usually occur one day during the week between 11 – 2 PM (days vary by area) and on Sunday from 2 – 5 PM. (Some occur on Saturday as well.)
Weekday Open Houses: Visiting these Realtor open houses is a great way to gain early access to properties. Once you become a client, you can receive open house notifications by email. Be sure your junk mail filter allows emails from firstname.lastname@example.org.
Weekend Open Houses: TheMLS.com is a the best way to learn about upcoming open houses in the Greater Los Angeles area.
Homefinder is a useful site to search for weekend open houses both in and outside of the Greater Los Angeles area.
NOTE: It is important to be aware of a principle called “procuring cause,” which may allow any Realtor you speak with to claim that they are entitled to a commission for telling you about a property that you eventually purchase. To protect your rebate and ensure that we can represent you on a home purchase, it is helpful if you can advise other Realtors that you are already working with a broker. This early disclosure eliminates any future issues. We’ll can even send you some Savanna Real Estate (the DBA under which we make offers) business cards to avoid any bias that “traditional” agents may have because of the rebate we offer.
