April 20, 2017 – Hosting open houses has been a core focus of Howard Hanna Real Estate’s institutional marketing for years, giving buyers the opportunity to explore a property in-person without scheduling a private showing.
Because of the power of open houses, and in celebration of the Spring home buying and selling season, the company annually hosts the biggest real estate event of the year with thousands of open houses on the same weekend.
On Saturday April 29th and Sunday April 30th, Howard Hanna hosts this year’s Open House Unlimited Event, highlighting open houses in different neighborhoods, styles and price ranges throughout their market areas. Attendees will be able to tour more homes than any other time of the year, and can register for the chance to win $1,500.
“We have always believed that open houses have great value. Even though most people now begin their home search online, they finish it by seeing the home in person,” said Howard W. “Hoby” Hanna, IV, President of Howard Hanna Real Estate Brokerage. “Being there in person, they can imagine what it would be like to live in the home and the neighborhood, while also having the opportunity to speak with the agent regarding any questions they may have.”
According to the National Association of REALTORS, 88% of buyers purchase a home through a real estate agent or a broker and 45% of them use open houses to help with the home purchase decision. Though many decisions in homebuying are made virtually, open houses remain a critical part of the process.
Howard Hanna agents hosting the open houses will be available to offer not only information about the home, but also insight into the local housing market and neighborhoods. Additionally, Howard Hanna Mortgage Services will have Mortgage Loan Originators available in all Howard Hanna offices to answer questions about financing and explain more about the variety of mortgage programs available to homebuyers.
