Central Kentucky Home Sellers to Welcome Thousands of Buyers in April

To offer buyers the convenience of touring dozens of homes for sale in one weekend, The Lexington-Bluegrass Association of REALTORS® and their clients will be hosting open houses April 10-11. It’s the first-ever statewide open house weekend and it’s being sponsored by the 9,600 plus member Kentucky REALTORS®.

“It’s a home shopper’s dream,” exclaims Anthony de Movellan, LBAR President. “For the serious buyer, the opportunity to tour dozens of homes in one weekend is a real time saver. Others who didn’t think they could afford a home may be drawn into the market by affordable prices and low interest rates. It’s a win-win!”

The Kentucky Open House Weekend comes just before the April 30, 2010, deadline for the federal homebuyer tax credit. Homes need to be under contract by April 30, 2010, and closed by June 30, 2010, in order for buyers to take advantage of up to $8,000 in tax credits.

“This event offers people a convenient way to see as many homes as they want in one weekend and gives our members a chance to be part of this fantastic effort to match buyers to their sellers,” says de Movellan.

de Movellan adds that the weekend will be a fun way to attract buyers and help them learn more about what is available in the local housing market. Blue balloons, featuring the REALTOR® “R” in white, will denote those homes that are part of the statewide open house campaign. Balloons will be on display simultaneously at open houses from Pikeville to Paducah.
