What a lot of Home Buyers don't realize is that only a small percentage of available homes have Open Houses. A lot of home sellers don't want a bunch of strangers in their home on a Sunday afternoon. They would prefer that a serious qualified buyer schedules a showing with a real estate agent.
I don't have the exact number but only about 15% of the homes for sale have Open Houses. That leaves over 80% of homes that a potential home buyer, only looking at open houses, may not be considering.
In addition, what a Home Buyer may not realize is that in Pennsylvania a home buyer can have a real estate agent fully represent them and their best interest. The agent representing the "home buyer" gets paid from the commission of the home when it is sold.
If a buyer walks into an open house, without an agent, the home buyer may end up having to work directly with the agent that was hired by the seller to sell the home. Is that agent working in their best interest?
A Lehigh Valley Home Buyer should select and work with a Real Estate Agent that they know is working for them and looking out for their best interest.
