Long & Foster Real Estate to Host Annual Open House Weekend

October 24, 2016

Long & Foster Real Estate, the nation’s No.1 privately owned residential real estate company, will host its annual fall open house weekend on Oct. 29 and 30. The event, which takes place in many of the Mid-Atlantic markets the company serves, will provide an opportunity for home buyers to explore numerous properties that are available for sale in their communities.

“At Long & Foster, we are committed to making sure the process of buying and selling a home is the best possible experience for our customers,” said Gary Scott and Larry “Boomer” Foster, presidents of Long & Foster Real Estate. “Our open house weekend allows our real estate professionals to do just that – help sellers showcase their homes and help buyers shop for a house in an easy, informative and enjoyable way. We believe that a home should be more than just a place where you live; it should be a place that you love.”

To make the process simple for potential buyers, loan officers with Prosperity Home Mortgage, LLC, will be on site at as many Long & Foster open house locations as possible to answer questions about the mortgage process and pre-qualify interested individuals. Representatives from Long & Foster Settlement Services and Long & Foster Insurance will also be in attendance at many locations to help buyers learn about everything from closing on a property to maintaining and protecting their investment.

“There are many great opportunities in the market to find a home or investment property, especially when factoring in the current low mortgage rates,” said Jeffrey S. Detwiler, president and chief operating officer of The Long & Foster Companies, parent company of Long & Foster Real Estate. “Long & Foster’s open house weekend enables consumers to discover what’s available, learn more about various neighborhoods and communities and find out what’s involved in the process, whether you’re ready to purchase or simply planning to do so in the future.”
