We are also recommending that any REALTOR® who holds an in-person open house also consider doing a Virtual Open House ( There is still a significant part of the population that is not yet ready to go to an in-person open house, so holding a Virtual Open House as well allows you to reach both groups of people, which maximizes your exposure to potential buyers.
