Submitted by bill.head on Wed, 2012-04-11 08:34

MetroTex REALTORS across North Texas will host the nation’s largest open house weekend, Saturday and Sunday, April 28-29, 2012. REALTOR Nationwide Open House Weekend not only brings buyers and sellers together, it is also an opportunity for REALTORS to connect with consumers in their communities about the housing issues that matter most to them.

The event aims to engage consumers regarding the benefits of homeownership to families, communities and the economy while offering expert insight into the local housing market.

Home Ownership Matters

  • Owning a home has long-standing government support in this country because homeownership benefits individuals and families, strengthens our communities, and is integral to our nation’s economy.
  • Home sales in this country generate more than 2.5 million private-sector jobs in an average year. For every two homes sold, a job is created.
  • Homeownership is an investment in your future.
  • The home is where we make memories, build our futures, and feel comfortable and secure.
  • Owning a home offers immediate shelter benefits and long-term value.
  • Owning a home is one of the best ways to build long-term wealth, providing both equity accumulation and tax benefits over time.
  • The decision to own a home is a very personal one, but we believe that anyone who is able and willing to assume the responsibilities of owning a home should have the opportunity to pursue that dream.
  • Given today’s low interest rates and historic affordability, it makes sense for people to consider owning a home over renting. After all, a fixed-rate mortgage might last 15 to 30 years; renting is forever.
