Nationwide Open House Weekend is This Weekend!

April 16, 2013

NAR Nationwide Open House WeekendThose hunting for homes are in luck this weekend, as it is the National Association of Realtors’ Nationwide Open House Weekend! This is an amazing chance to visit tons of great Chicago real estate and explore neighborhoods to find your next new home!

Open houses mean open doors, and the Nationwide Open House Weekend is one of the first big events to show that spring house hunting season is in full swing! Buyers have a chance to preview homes and neighborhoods to get a feel of style, size and more in ways that pictures don’t do justice. And, they get to do it all while homes are still affordably priced and interest rates are low. Finally, even if buyers don’t find their dream home while they are out exploring, they may find the Realtor that is right for them and can help guide their homebuying process.

For sellers, the weekend is an amazing opportunity for high-visibility to promote traffic and drive home sales. By holding open homes for buyers and Realtors alike, homes get exposure they normally wouldn’t enjoy. The open doors also give sellers a chance to compare homes with their own to size up the competition, so that they can better evaluate their market position – either for upgrades that will draw in more buyers or to reach a more desirable price. It’s not too late to prepare your home to sell and to find a qualified Realtor to list with just in time for the weekend!
