Nationwide Open House April 28-29

Cary, NC (April 27, 2012) To help potential home buyers realize the dream of owning a home, the Raleigh Regional Association of REALTORS® (RRAR) is participating in REALTOR® Nationwide Open House this weekend.  Eight in 10 adults agree that buying a home is the best long-term investment a person can make. That is according to a recent nationwide Pew Research Center survey, demonstrating the value that Americans continue to place on home ownership.

“Home ownership benefits individuals and families, and strengthens our communities said Laurie Donofrio, Chair of the RRAR Open House Subcommittee.  “The decision to own a home is a personal one, but we believe that anyone who is able and willing should have the opportunity to pursue that dream. The REALTOR® Nationwide Open House Weekend gives REALTORS® the opportunity to bring buyers and sellers together and help them connect with local residents about the housing issues that matter most to the people in our community.”

A strong majority of renters surveyed in the Pew Research Center study – 81 percent – said they would prefer to one day buy a home. In addition, respondents rated being able to own a home as the top long-term financial goal followed by being able to live comfortably in retirement, pay for a child’s college education, and leave inheritance for children.

REALTORS® are hosting open houses in various local neighborhoods throughout Wake County and the rest of North Carolina this weekend to provide guidance and insights into the social and financial benefits of home ownership. They can also answer questions about the local housing market and the home buying and selling process.
