The San Francisco Association of Realtors recently launched a new directory of open homes that buyers can use. This is a welcome addition to the home buying process, because not everyone gets The Chronicle—nor do they want to slog through its online listings. With SF Open Home.com, users can enter the day and criteria, and a list of open homes will result. Each listing is displayed with photo links and much more detail than any Chronicle newspaper ad can provide.
Of course, the database is only as good as the data it holds. So encourage any Realtors you know to make sure they enter open house information for all their listings!
