National Open House Weekend April 10 – 11, 2010

Open Houses in Spring TexasYou will a lot of balloons and open house signs this weekend as numerous state and local real estate associations are participating in the first national open house weekend.  My fellow Realtors® with Prudential Gary Greene Realtors are not ones to be left out as over 400 homes are scheduled to be opened on April 11th.

If you are a buyer, this Sunday is a great opportunity for you to get out and view numerous Spring Texas houses.  Just remember, if you fall in love with a house you view during an open house to keep your thoughts to yourself otherwise you will weaken your negotiation position.  The Realtor who is holding the house open works for the sellers and is obligated to share everything you say about the house to the sellers. If you love it, tell your buyer’s agent and not the listing agent.

If you are considering putting your house on the Spring Texas real estate market, this Sunday is a great opportunity for you to check out your potential competition.  You will experience for yourself how curb appeal, staging, and condition impact your first impression of a home.
