From the Record:
With the spring home-buying season approaching, Realtors across New Jersey are showcasing inventories of homes for sale and celebrating the second year of Open House Weekend. Today and tomorrow (April 2 – 3), the New Jersey Association of Realtors (NJAR) aims to trump the success of last year’s event by featuring hundreds of participating Realtors and thousands of listed homes on display.
Editor’s note – Interesting, every year prior, Superbowl weekend was the kickoff. I suppose they’ll just keep rescheduling the kickoff until the buyer’s show.
People who are considering buying or selling a home are being urged to take advantage of this statewide event by either hosting an open house or visiting those that are open for viewing.
“Momentum is building, as Realtors across New Jersey are working with their clients to prepare listed homes and help map out buyers’ routes for Open House Weekend,” said NJAR President Allan “Dutch” Dechert. “This event makes home shopping easier for those looking to sell their properties and find a new place to live.”
Editor’s note – Open houses don’t sell houses, they are a sales tool for the sales agent showing the house to find new clients.
With mortgage interest rates still at record lows, Dechert stated that housing in New Jersey is more affordable than it has been in years. Customers can benefit by capitalizing on the opportunity to purchase a larger house or one in a more desirable neighborhood.
