Nationwide Open House Weekend
Opportunity is knocking! With prices at their most affordable, buyers may now be able to find their dream home at their price!
Just look for the blue balloons the weekend of April 28 and 29. Your dream house may be waiting for you to come home!
The National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) has organized a Nationwide Open House Weekend in which REALTOR® associations from across the country, including ours, will be promoting open houses in their communities.
For the third year, CABOR members will participate in this nationwide effort to give prospective homebuyers the chance to view hundreds of homes in one weekend. This is a great way for buyers to discover the quality and affordability of homes currently on the market in the Cleveland area.
Home ownership matters – to people, to communities and to America.
- Home ownership is an investment in your future.
- 67% of American homes are owned by the occupants.
- Historically, the net worth of a home owner has ranged from 31 to 46 times higher than that of a renter.
