March 22 and 23, 2014 – Area-wide Super Open House!

SuperOpen_March22_23

All regional real estate agents and brokers are participating in an area-wide open house on March 22 and 23, 2014. Look for 2,000+ homes to be open throughout Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio; Northern Kentucky; and Southeastern Indiana, including hundreds and hundreds of Sibcy Cline listed homes.

Find regional open house information here at Sibcy Cline’s website.

It’s a great time to buy a home:

  • Home values are going up
  • Mortgage interest rates are low

Here are some tips when attending open houses:

  • Have a game plan. See what homes will be held open and plan your trip geographically.
  • Can’t get into to see all of the homes? Remember, your agent can schedule personal showing tours on another day for you.
  • Be comfortable. Wear low-heeled shoes because you will be walking quite a bit when touring homes.
  • Ask questions. The host agent at the home is there to answer your questions about the property.
    Take notes. If you are seeing several homes, take good notes so you can remember the features of each home visited.
  • Closets and cupboards. Yes, you can open up closets and cupboards to find out storage capacities. You cannot rummage through people’s belongings, however.

Sibcy Cline is holding a super open house on March 8 and 9, 2014 throughout Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio; Northern Kentucky; and Southeastern Indiana.

The last super open house in February was a great success with over 400 open houses. We had quite a few homes sell from people getting out and viewing homes during this cold weekend. 

Look at upcoming open houses here.

Weather Predictions
Weather predictions for this weekend are looking fabulous. It’s going to be in the 40s with only a chance of rain. (Yep, no snow or ice. This blogger is doing the happy dance right now.)

Most of the snow should be melted by the weekend as it is going to be in the 50s on Friday.

So, get out and look at homes on the market. Mortgage interest rates are still low and home prices are just starting to rise. It’s a great time to buy a home.

Sibcy Cline Super Open House on February 8 and 9, 2014

SuperOpenHouse_Feb

Mark your calendars, because on February 8 and 9, 2014, Sibcy Cline Realtors is holding a Super Open House weekend.

The winter has been brutal. You probably have cabin fever and want to get out to personally look at homes. (Our website traffic has been very busy!) It’s the perfect time to look at homes: Home prices are starting to rise, mortgage rates are still low, and there are some great homes available now on the market.

During the week of February 3rd, look at upcoming Sibcy Cline’s Open Houses here. There will be plenty of homes to tour.

Here are some tips when touring open houses:

Dress Comfortably
You will be walking through many rooms as well as up and down stairs. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes.

Plan Your Day
Look online for which homes are open and then plan on touring by location. If you cannot see all of the homes on your list, remember you can still have your agent schedule a personal showing appointment for another day.

Needs and Wishes
Have you made a priority list of what you want in a home? You need to narrow down your preferences with the most urgent needs at the top of this list.

Take Note
If you are touring quite a few homes, it might be helpful to take a notepad (or tablet) to take notes of home features: great storage, open kitchen, nice lot, etc…

Be Sure To Ask Questions
At each Sibcy Cline Open House, a Sibcy Cline agent will be available to answer questions you may have about the property.

Why Tour Homes?
Personal tours via an open house are a great way to get to know areas of interest. You can see the bigger picture of these locations and their nearby amenities.
