They are getting ready for the great open house festival over the weekend.

Are there many open houses on holiday weekends?

We were told to avoid Memorial Day weekend because of the low turn out on holidays. This was based on the expectation that there would be multiple offers from the first and only open house weekend. The prediction was true, and we weren't ready in May anyway.

(If we ever sell a house again, I will find an agent at least two months before the planned listing date. I didn't have a clue how much work goes into getting ready, and in our case moving before listing.)
