Shanahan Real Estate Group will have open houses today from 1-3PM.
This weekend, Shanahan Real Estate Group is participating in Nationwide Open House Weekend. This is the third annual event, organized locally by the Massachusetts Association of Realtors (MAR).
About National Open House Weekend
Since its first year, Shanahan Real Estate Group has participated and coordinated all of our open houses to ensure that buyers had a very clear day and time to see as many of our listings as possible. While open houses are only one component to a successful marketing plan, most buyers utilize open houses as a first step in the home buying process.
From the Massachusetts Association of Realtors: "This third annual event gives buyers at all levels a stress-free way to see a wide range of homes for sale and learn more about home ownership. This includes learning about the buying process and the local real estate market to information on the local community. REALTORS are also a good source of information on housing issues at the local, state and federal levels that may impact current and future home owners. For sellers, the weekend will provide additional exposure of their homes to interested buyers."
