thats 30 hours a month
if you did that 2 months straight and generate 1 sale
at 6,000
thats $100 per hour...


LOL, well, I have a VERY distinct way of doing business than Linden and view the industry differently, but I have to respect his methodical ways and how he analyzes every aspect of his business practice.

I used it for lead generation, of course....and they found it and told me to take it down. I said no, I have a listing and several leads from it, I am not going to take it down...so they fired me.

I learned two valuable lessons: do not work for a competing broker, and make sure your broker allows you to have your own website lead generation. LOL
1)Perky = ahead of the curve

Yes, less than 1% sell at an Open House...

For an agent though - you know you are probably not going to sell that specific home - BUT, if you work the Open House correctly, you should get 2 more pieces of business on average from every Open House that you host.

You have to go after the buyers and the hidden gem from Open Houses... sellers!
