REALTOR Nationwide Open House Weekend April 28-29

At the end of this month (April 28-29 to be exact), REALTORS® across Massachusetts and the United States will be hosting thousands of open houses as part of the 3rd Annual REALTOR® Nationwide Open House Weekend. The goal of the event is to give buyers the opportunity to easily see a wide range of homes for sale in a single weekend.

If buying a home is right for you, now might be a good time for you to do it. Prices are at pre-bubble levels and interest rates are still historically low. Confidence in the economy and the housing market in general is increasing. Buyers are entering the market again and have pushed sales up for the past eight straight months.

Looking ahead, homes put under agreement in February indicate that sales should continue to go up in the next several months. As always, working with a local REALTOR® is your best bet when it comes to buying or selling a home.

To find homes for sale that will be open during the Nationwide Open House Weekend (or any weekend for that matter), you can go to www.maRealtorOpenHouse.com
