Posted from: http://www.zillow.com/blog/old-shed-turned-screened-porch-202853/

Posted from: http://www.zillow.com/blog/people-who-attend-open-houses-86001/

In real estate showings, the Sunday open house is the gold standard. As the name implies, a property is open to just about anyone who learns of the showing in an online or print ad, drives by and sees the agent’s A-frame sign, or receives a notification postcard in the mail.

But not everyone who goes to an open house is a potential buyer. Here are five types of people likely to pass through a property during an open house.
