Join thousands of REALTORS® around the nation and hold an open house on the weekend of April 10 and 11, 2010.

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
