Purchasing a home is one of the most important decisions in a person’s life and deciding on a particular house comes with many options. Forty-five percent of recent buyers used open houses as a way to narrow down their choices and find their dream home. Buyers in the Bluegrass will have the opportunity to do just that on April 20 and 21 as Realtors® hold open houses all weekend long as part of the Realtor® Nationwide Open House Weekend.
“Spring is typically a busy season when it comes to home buying, and to kick-off the season Realtors® throughout central Kentucky are taking part in Realtor® Nationwide Open House Weekend,” said LBAR President Al Blevins. “This event is a great way for buyers to get an idea of what they can afford and what kinds of homes are available in the local market. It’s also a chance for sellers to market their home and attract potential buyers.”
“Buyers need to have a clear idea of what features are important to them and know where they are willing to compromise;” said Blevins. “That is where visiting open houses can be helpful. Also, working with a Realtor® can be a real asset. Realtors® visit hundreds of homes with buyers each year, and have a unique understanding of what buyers value in their local markets. Their expertise and knowledge can help you achieve the dream of homeownership.”
