The best open houses are the ones that leave you wanting to see more. Maybe it was the vaulted dining room where you envisioned all your future family holidays or the perfectly constructed his and her walk-in closets.
Whatever the details, those houses had you talking for days.
To the owners of Florida vacation rentals, we’ve got some advice: Just because you can’t host an open house, your listing should stir that same kind of hope.
