I agree with you, Paul. It makes sense to target a housing market, then target the buyers that would buy a property like that and put the two together.

Where I marketed the bubble has burst. There are two to three houses for sale on every block. Buyers are few and far between. Considering my real estate background I should be targetting real estate sales agents. I don't know why I don't. It is what I know.

Althea - I'm not sure about the idea of knocking on doors when you do an open house for someone else. I did an open house two weekends ago for someone else and she had two potential buyers come by. Plus a neighbor did drive by and stop and talked for a minute.

The problem I see is that when I list a house I send out 100 mailers to area houses announcing the listing and inviting them to the first open house. So I know who I've sent to, I know who I've talked to. With someone else's listing I don't know who she sent mailers to or who she's talked to.

Also, doing an open house for someone else, I do it because I'm hoping to meet an unrepresented buyer. Most buyers come with an agent. To the listing agent, it doesn't matter, but to me it does as I won't get anything for my time if a buyer represented by an agent makes an offer. For that reason I hesitate to put too much of my own time and resources towards the open house.

On the other hand, it's the longest two hours when no one shows up and also a huge waste of my time.
