So we live in a short cul-de-sac where really not much has changed over the time we've lived here (except tenants moving in & out) & over the last few months, 2 of the places have been put up for sale. When this happens, like this morning, the street becomes a car park several times a week for several weeks & that's basically how we know there's an open house at one of the properties. Certain people we know, that aren't interested in buying, go to these open houses anyway but we don't, it feels nosey to me, that doesn't stop me looking up the listing online to see what price theyre trying to sell for to estimate our home's current value when markets go up & down so much. I remember being dragged thru show home after show home as a kid when my family were building from scratch, I guess that doesn't feel quite the same b/c it's not really someone's stuff, just pretend decorations (the pretend black box TV placeholders used to make us laugh as kids). When we sold our last house when our kids were little, we put so much stuff in temporary storage, it was almost like no-one lived in our house that it was almost a showhome for when open houses were arranged. Do you attend open house inspections or visit show homes? Ever had an open house in your own home? How did you manage it?
