Did the Daylight Savings Change Put a Damper on Your Open House?

Share News:

I ran to a few open houses Sunday, and wondered if turn-out was lower because people were thrown off by the Daylight Savings change. One agent told me he had to cancel TWO open houses in Preston Hollow: the homeowners had plumb forgotten about the change and were not ready. Others I went to were slow. So I ask you, does the time change in the spring (losing an hour) or fall (gaining an hour) affect your open houses? Should you just not have an open house on these weekends?  In fact, what are the BEST weekends for open houses?
