To offer buyers the convenience of touring dozens of homes for sale in one weekend, the Middle Tennessee Association of REALTORS® (MTAR) and its members will be hosting open houses April 10-11. As part of the inaugural REALTOR® Nationwide Open House Weekend, MTAR is participating along with state and local associations across the country.
“This weekend offers homebuyers an unbeatable opportunity,” said 2010 MTAR President Dave Patton of Prudential Rowland Real Estate. “The market is full of affordable homes. With low mortgage interest rates, this event is sure to pull in buyers across the area.”
The Nationwide 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 buyers a chance to see as many homes as they want in one weekend and allows our members to be a part of the ongoing effort to match buyers with their sellers,” said Patton.
The weekend will be a fun way to attract buyers and help them learn more about what is available in the local housing market.
The Nationwide Open House Weekend was designed to increase consumer awareness of the benefits of buying a home and to give sellers an opportunity to increase the exposure for their home sales.
