What's an Open House?

An open house is an event in which a property is open for viewing to potential buyers or renters. The event is typically held on a weekend, and the property is open for a set period of time, allowing interested parties to walk through the property and ask questions of the listing agent. Open houses are a popular way for buyers and renters to see a property in person and get a sense of its layout and condition, and for sellers and landlords to market their properties.
