I am surprised these realtors are giving flat fees, usually it is a %.

Ya, one of them is called "assist and sell", and the another was "help u sell". They just charge a flat fee, so I'm told.

Good luck with that! We haven't done an open house, that's something to consider. I read somewhere that open houses were a waste of time, and don't bother. I'm glad to hear different. And you're right, it all takes patience.

Beware with open houses - a lot of noisy neighbors come calling.

I would definitely invest in some cheap hidden cameras for an open house.
