National open house this weekend

Realtors expect this year’s spring home buying season to be a busy one.

To kick it off, Realtors from coast to coast will host thousands of open houses as part of the Realtor Nationwide Open House Weekend April 28-29.

Realtors in the Greater Rochester and Finger Lakes regions will hold open houses all weekend long, bringing buyers and sellers together.

Realtors will be available to answer questions about the home buying process and local market conditions.

Earlier this year, NAR reported housing affordability conditions reached the highest level since record keeping began in 1970.
