My best open house tip...do impromptu open houses. When I have a showing on one of my listings, I will frequently tack on an open house for an hour. I am doing this on Sunday from 3-4 since I already have a showing scheduled at 4.

Signage! Be sure to put out LOTS of signs. Make it easy for potential buyers to find the home! I also add balloons to the signs. I get then at the dollar store, so it's inexpensive. The balloons "dancing" around in the wind capture the attention of someone driving by and they may decide to visit your open house on a whim!
