Sunday Open House <> Vikings’ Game
He (or she) who ignores the first rule of Sunday open houses — “thou shalt not compete head-to-head with a Vikings game” — is likely to regret it.
Or at least, have a sparsely attended open house, with only one of the decision makers present (the non-football watching one).
Which is why savvy agents take care to check the Vikings’ schedule — and plan their open house around the game.
This Sunday’s easy: it’s a “bye” week (no game).
Role of Weather
Good weather helps too, of course.
It’s just that, in order to maximize the number of Buyers who see it, it’s important to schedule the open house by mid-week, when Sunday weather forecasts are still iffy.
