How Do You Find Virtual Open Houses?

If your plan was to search for a home by visiting open houses in Long Beach CA this spring, you’ll need to head to virtual open houses. But how do you find virtual open houses? And how do you know which Long Beach neighborhoods to look in?

Watch our quick video.


The fact is, agents are still just learning how to best do virtual open houses and how to let buyers know about them, so it may be a while before they are all reliably easy to find in one place. Let’s face it, some agents don’t even make their live open houses easy to find.

What exactly a virtual open house entails and how you access it may vary also. Some agents are using Zoom and you’ll have to register. Others are streaming live via Facebook or using Google Chats. You should be able to determine access from this app, which you can download on your mobile device via this link:

This HomeSpotter CRMLS app pulls information DIRECTLY from the Multiple Listing Service, which is what agents use to search for homes — and it will be your best source for finding virtual open houses in Long Beach, CA and surrounding communities.
