A lot of the work of a real estate broker often needs to be done when most people are playing or relaxing: evenings and weekends. Clients get home from work and need a question answered, so we find some of our evenings devoted to addressing inquiries and/or easing the fears and anxieties of our buyers or sellers.
Weekends, some home tours are a must if buyers have no time during the work week to look at houses. And, on the other side of the coin, if an agent is holding an open house Sundays–and sometimes Saturdays–are devoted to advertising, making the appropriate marketing materials, putting out signs, and welcoming guests for the three or four hour time slot one needs to give buyers the opportunity to see the property properly.
As a result, some weekend fun, like last Sunday’s Solano Stroll pictured above and last Saturday’s Ghirardelli Chocolate festival my daughter loves, I have to miss. I don’t feel that ill-used, though, because I live in the Bay Area, a place where there’s plenty of fun to be had all week long. There’s always time to have fun, so here’s this week’s list of FREE local activities.
