It’s a Nationwide Open House Weekend!

by hookedonhouses on April 28, 2012

I have to say it was awfully nice of them to declare a Nationwide Open House Weekend on my birthday. It’s like they know me or something! Ha. My friends at sent me this infographic they made for it, showing stats on things like how many houses will be open for lookiloos house hunters. Take a look:

Will you be hitting any Open Houses this weekend? Or will you be hosting one yourself? Here’s hoping the weather is nice and sunny, house hunters find the homes of their dreams, and we see some new “Sold” signs popping up in our neighborhoods soon!

More info on the Nationwide Open House at Now excuse me while I go and eat some more birthday cake (dark chocolate with cream cheese frosting, yum). :-)

Happy birthday Julia!! Thanks for all that you do to inspire so many people to have a happy home. It is certainly fun to see what houses are available, too!

Happy birthday my friend…wishing you a cup of joy that keeps over flowing!!!
No open houses for me…other plans this weekend including my daughters birthday!!

That’s so neat! But I have to drive to other towns and cities to hit open houses because the realtors in my town don’t believe in doing open houses! Seriously, they all banded together and decided that open houses don’t work and were thus a waste on their time so none of them do it!! It makes me so angry (as a house lover and frequent real estate client!)

You’re kidding! I’d be so disappointed if I couldn’t snoop at–er, visit–Open Houses in my town!

Happy Birthday, Julia – hope it’s your best one yet!

Happy Birthday Julia!

Happy Birthday! We are actually HOSTING an open house on Sunday! Our vacant house is STILL on the market in metro-Atlanta. Here is my blog post showing all of the “before and afters” for our home. (Please don’t think I am ‘spamming’ you – we have really put in many man-hours on the upgrades!)
Enjoy your birthday!

Thanks, Trish! Love what you did with the house–the new woodwork looks great. Good luck with the Open House!!

Happy Birthday Julia, it is also my daughters birthday…clearly the day of the year when very creative women are born!!

Happy Birthday to your daughter, too! I always loved having a birthday at this time of year–spring is my favorite season. :)

Happy birthday girlie. Btw we are going to some open houses. The neighborhood next to us hosts something called homearama…8 houses to walk through. Love! April 28, 2012 at 9:59 pm

What charming houses!

Happy Birthday Julia! I hope you had a good day today. That cake sounds very yummy.

Linda@limeinthe coconut April 29, 2012 at 4:31 am

Dayum! I better put on my open house shoes and get crackin’!


Elizabeth April 29, 2012 at 5:21 am

Happy birthday!
And yes we are planning to hit at least two open houses today!
So much more fun being on the buying side than the selling side these days. Btw our house sold because of an open house and we bought it because of an open house so when realtors claim that open houses don’t sell houses they are just plain wrong.

Oh Happy Birthday Julia!…and welcome to the family. You must be one of us if this is your birthday, my sister is the 27th and I’m the 29th. You’ll fit it perfectly!
