The End of Open Houses?

When asked the age old question, 'Do open houses work?' East End agents tell Hamptons Online that mass showings for brokers tend to be the only effective way to sell real estate. The public open house is questionably successful, becoming more of a neighborly gathering than a way to seriously move a home. One local broker tells the site that many potential customers don't sign in with their real names when visiting a listing, and can be a security threat, helping themselves to an owner's more valuable possessions.
