Encourage your buyers to visit and your sellers to participate. As an added touch you can identify the open house with REALTOR® balloons.
How is this weekend different than any other weekend in April? This is an incredible opportunity for consumers to shop for a new home while:
|• Affordability is good|
|• Mortgage interest rates are low (but expected to rise)|
|• Good supply of homes on the market|
|• The Expanded First-time Homebuyer’s Federal Tax Credit is still available. The contract has to be in place by April 30, 2010.|
Eventually, home prices and interest rates will climb, inventory will become scarce and the tax credit will be gone.
NAR(national association of Realtors) will be helping with this event by:
- Running a blurb in the April issue of REALTOR® Magazine
- Developing a national press release which they will send out April 9
- Promoting via their Facebook, Twitter, etc. accounts
