Nationwide Open House Weekend
Mark you calendars! The weekend of April 28-29 has been designated Nationwide Open House Weekend. As with past celebrations, REALTORS® all across the country are encouraged to organize open houses on these two days to create a united front on the value of homeownership. NAR’s Immediate Past President, Ron Phipps, broker-president of Phipps Realty in Warwick, R.I. said that “The event will give consumers the chance to find out more about home ownership, allow buyers to pursue their dream of owning a home, and give REALTORS® an opportunity to connect with consumers about the housing issues that matter most in their area.”
Additionally, Boston Globe Media is working with both GBAR and MAR to produce a special version of the Sunday Globe Real Estate section to attract additional consumer attention to this important weekend, which will include an open house directory, some additional marketing of your open houses, and more.
Finally, there are some great resources for you to use from NAR, including how to prepare for an open house, safety and open houses, and a general field guide for open houses.
