What is the Nationwide Open House Weekend?
The Grand Rapids Association of REALTORS® has teamed up with NAR and REALTOR® associations across the country for one weekend of Nationwide Open Houses. The purpose of this is to encourage those who are thinking of buying a home to take advantage of unique home market factors and the home buyer tax credit that expires on April 30th, 2010. This is the first event of its kind nationwide.

How is this weekend different than any other weekend in April?
This is an incredible opportunity for consumers to shop for a new home while:
o   Interest rates are still low
o   Home prices are lower
o   The variety of home choices available
o   The Expanded First-time Homebuyers Federal Tax Credit is still available.

Eventually, home prices and interest rates will climb, inventory will become scarce and the tax credit will be gone. So get out and visit all the open houses in the Grand Rapids area on April 10-11.
