"Do you mean to tell me that some agents host open houses when those homes are in escrow?"
"Roger that Ghost Rider, it happens more often than you may think!"
Below are a few ways to check the "availability" of the open house.
1. Get a Smart Phone real estate search app. <---from your smart phone text the letters - SCV - to 87778 to download the BEST real estate Application for smart phones.
3. Do your research at Santa Clarita Open Houses dot com, before you head out.
*Remember, if you have a real estate agent, and if you like them and want to be loyal to them, have them present you with a Buyer Broker Agreement. That way, you can view all of the "open houses" you like and never have to work with the agent hosting the open house.
