Nothing could be better than a weekend full of open houses encouraging people to tour homes and learn more about the benefits of home ownership! And the 2013 REALTOR® Nationwide Open House Weekend promises to provide just that opportunity. On Saturday and Sunday, April 20-21, REALTORS® locally and across the country are bringing buyers and sellers together, thereby helping them connect with local residents to celebrate the diversity in housing opportunities that exist today.
“REALTORS® are leading advocates for home ownership, and home ownership is how most families begin to invest and accumulate wealth,” said Linda Terry, President of the Richmond Association of REALTORS®.“Through this nationwide event, we hope not only to educate the public on the value of owning a home, but also to help those who are striving to become home owners take steps toward achieving their goals. Owning a home is the best way to build long-term wealth, while providing a center for family stability. Plus there are added benefits of equity accumulation and tax benefits over time,” Terry added.
The Nationwide Open House Weekend offers buyers a leisurely way to visit homes for sale in different neighborhoods where they might want to live. For sellers, the weekend provides a high-visibility effort to promote traffic and drive home sales.
