Open houses often take all day, but they don’t need to, especially for rental properties. Results from real estate agents across the country suggest that just 15 minutes is enough time to hold a successful rental open house. This offers several advantages to real estate agents, saving time and allowing agents to hold several open houses in a single day. This, in turn, can lead to a real estate agent regularly completed numerous successful and lucrative transactions in a single weekend.

When planning a 15-minute rental open house, there are three steps that can make all the difference: advertising, collecting information, and confirming with potential attendees.
