Open Houses

Open houses increase exposure and allow us to showcase your home in its best light. They also provide an opportunity for more people to view your home within a short timeframe. The Mel Star Team will work with you to prepare and make sure your home is ready for ‘prime time’, find a date and time that’s convenient to you, and market the open house in both digital and traditional ways.

Is It Good To Buy A House In Foreclosure?

As home prices soar in many cities, buyers are looking towards foreclosures as an affordable option for landing their dream home. Typically, a foreclosure occurs when a homeowner can no longer make the mortgage payments and either the home becomes a bank-owned property or becomes a court-ordered judicial sale. 

When the home becomes a bank-owned property, the home will be vacated, and then offered for sale. When the home becomes a judicial sale, in many cases the owner still has equity in the home and would still occupy the home until court proceedings end and an offer is accepted.  Typically, the owner would then have 30-45 days to vacate the property.

Open Houses FAQs

Depending on the home and its location we will most often have open houses on the weekend. However, weekday open houses during the afternoon rush hour can be very effective, especially with properties located closest to the inner city.

Open houses are marketed through various channels such as, multiple social media platforms, MLS advertising, and our in-house Re/Max system. We also notify neighbours in the general area and inform our vast network of connections we have made over the 40+ years of selling Real Estate in Calgary.
