Howard Hanna Hosts Biggest Real Estate Event of the Year

Chance to win a $1,500 mortgage payment

Cleveland, OH (April 18, 2016) – Howard Hanna Real Estate Services has always believed in the power of open houses and every year in April, the company hosts the biggest real estate event of the year with thousands of open houses in different price ranges, styles and locations.  This year’s open house event takes place Saturday, April 23 and Sunday, April 24 and celebrates the well-known real estate company’s newly unveiled tag line, Home Happens Here™.

“We believe in the value of open houses,” said Helen Hanna Casey, president of Howard Hanna.  “The Internet is great, and most people begin their home search there. But open houses are so much more than the Internet. Home Happens Here is about people’s lives, and the open house allows buyers the opportunity to go beyond seeing pictures of a house; it allows them to feel how it can become their home, their neighborhood.”

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 make the decision on which home to purchase. This means that despite living in a digital world, open houses continue to be an important part of the real estate industry.

By attending Howard Hanna’s Home Happens Here big open house event, buyers can see many more homes in a shorter timeframe, as they will have the opportunity to tour more homes for sale than at any other time of the year. And as a special bonus, visitors can register at each open house they attend on April 23 or April 24 to win one month’s mortgage payment up to $1,500.*

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 Loan Originators available in all Howard Hanna offices to answer questions about the home buying and selling process and mortgage programs.

If you are thinking of putting your home on the market, now is the time. Contact a Howard Hanna agent to list your home so that it can be a part of the biggest real estate event of the year.
