Let’s Go See Some Houses!

Join REALTORS® and REALTOR® associations across the nation on Saturday and Sunday, April 20 and 21, 2013 for the largest open house weekend in the country.

According to NAR’s 2012 profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, 45 percent of all buyers used open houses as a source in their home search process.  This powerful statistic illustrates the continued importance of open houses, even in our soaring technological era.

National REALTOR® Open House is an NAR sponsored open house event which offers a fantastic opportunity for those interested in homeownership to connect with a TREG REALTOR® who can offer expert advice and guidance on the home-buying process.  The benefits of Open Houses for buyers, sellers and REALTORS® are vast.

 

  • Open houses give potential buyers a feel for what is available in their local market
  • An open house allows neighbors to identify with which houses in their neighborhood are for sale, which can create a buzz
  • Prospective buyers can see a number of houses, all on the same day
  • Sellers get the opportunity for a new group of buyers to check out their homes
  • REALTORS® get a better feel for a neighborhood or area
  • They give REALTORS® the opportunity to make personal connections and brand themselves by developing relationships, not only with prospective buyers, but other local homeowners that may be buying or selling in the future.

 

The National Association of REALTORS® has created a wealth of promotional materials that you can use to promote your open houses including news release templates, logos, flyers, media hooks and a hash tag which you can use on your social media sites.  You can view the entire NAR site or click on the links below for specific information.  This YouTube video will give you 10 creative ideas for how to promote your open house.
