Sunday Open House < Vikings’ Game, or, 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 ” today’s home game against the Eagles starts at noon — and plan their open house around the 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.

Given this weekend’s wet, snowy conditions, my guess is that turnout today is subpar.
