Kentucky "Open House"

June 4 & 5

The Kentucky Association of REALTORS® is teaming up with associations across the country for one weekend of Nationwide Open Houses for the second consecutive year. The purpose is to encourage those who are thinking of buying a home to take advantage of unique home market factors and the affordability that Kentucky offers. NAR will be promoting the event on a national level.

Be sure to include your open houses for that weekend on the MLS and in other promotions you are putting together! We'll be directing the public to our website and you can direct them to your listings on the MLS or personal sites as well. This is at no cost to you! KAR will be sending free balloons to your local association, available for you to tie to your open house signs as well as providing free graphics, flyers and ads.
