REALTOR® Nationwide Open House Weekend…Get Your Free Balloons!

With the local economy now adding jobs and record breaking housing affordability conditions in place, REALTORS® expect this year’s spring home buying season to be a busy one. To celebrate the season, REALTORS® from coast to coast will host thousands of open houses as part of the REALTOR® Nationwide Open House Weekend. GBAR is encouraging members to host open houses on April 28 and 29 in your city or town, helping to bring buyers and sellers together.

“This nationwide event offers buyers the chance to visit some of the many homes in their local area while learning more about homeownership,” said GBAR President Bill Dermody. “Open houses are also an opportunity for REALTORS® to connect with consumers in their communities about the housing issues that matter most to them.” 

There are a few things you can do to get involved. Schedule open houses that weekend, order complimentary blue REALTOR® balloons for your office courtesy of GBAR, and register for this free open house safety webinar to help you create a plan for your open houses.

Additionally, to help attract more buyers to your open houses, The Boston Globe and Boston.com have partnered with GBAR and MAR to publish a special Nationwide Open House Weekend section on April 29, including a consumer prize contest. Visit their website for details, or call 617-929-1500.

Homeownership matters to individuals, families, communities and our nation’s economy,” said Dermody. “The housing market plays a vital role in both the long- and short-term health of this country. Homeownership is not just an investment in your future; it’s an investment in the future of generations to come.”
