Get Moving – Open House Weekend!

If you are looking to sell or let your house or buy or rent your next home, the ‘MOVE – Open House Weekend’ could be right up your street.

The summer months are traditionally a quieter period for the housing market but not this year!  Countrywide Property group is now gearing up for a busy autumn ahead as it launches its ‘MOVE – Open House Weekend’ event in September. Activity levels usually peak in the spring and then dip during the summer months as the holiday period takes people’s focus away from moving home. However, that hasn’t happened this year with the recent upturn in the housing market encouraging those looking to buy or rent property. With the trend continuing into the autumn and an influx of buyers and tenants keen to move before Christmas, the added incentive of an Open House Weekend, the prospect for homeowners and landlords to sell or let their properties couldn’t be better.

The ‘MOVE – Open House Weekend’ will be held on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th September. With more than 1,300 branches participating throughout the UK in this national campaign to help more buyers and sellers, landlords and tenants complete their sales, let their properties and purchase or rent a home this autumn.
In addition to the Open House Weekend, we will also be promoting the Government’s Help to Buy scheme, which is assisting more first-time buyers to get on the housing ladder and purchase their first home. Mortgage consultants will be on hand to provide information about the Help to Buy scheme as well as assist buyers in finding the right mortgage. The last Open House event held in May attracted nearly 25,000 viewings and resulted in over 2,000 sales.

Sellers and landlords from across the UK have already started to register for the event, recognising that this is an ideal opportunity to promote their property and attract lots of viewings from interested buyers and tenants over the weekend. Previous Open House events have been very successful for our customers and we expect this event to be no exception.

There is still time for homeowners and landlords to sign up and take part – we are keen to showcase as many properties as we possibly can to ensure we help match the right buyer and tenant to the right property and at the right price. The ‘MOVE – Open House Weekend’ is another example of the innovative ways that we are helping buyers, sellers, landlords and tenants overcome the typical barriers they are often faced, by offering access to the most amount of properties in one weekend, combined with dedicated in-house mortgage advice and a conveyancing solution, which ensures the legal aspects of your property transaction are managed by a professional property lawyer.

Don’t miss out! If you have a property to sell or let, be part of the UK’s largest Open House Weekend.  For a full list of all the properties participating in the ‘MOVE – Open House Weekend’, log on to
