The Greater Chattanooga Association of Realtors (GCAR) is kicking off the popular spring homebuying season with its annual Open House Weekend on Saturday and Sunday.

“Hundreds of our most knowledgeable Realtors step up to the plate each year during this event and welcome the public to tour some of the highest-quality homes in the southeast Tennessee and northwest Georgia areas,” said Nathan Walldorf, president of GCAR. “This is a prime opportunity for potential homebuyers to quickly canvass the region and find the home that best meets their needs.”

It’s estimated that nearly 250 homes will be available for the general public to view during Open House Weekend. Officially registered homes will be marked with blue and white balloons featuring the GCAR logo. Consumers will also have the opportunity to enter for the chance to win one of five $150 Visa Gift Cards.

“As the voice for Greater Chattanooga real estate, GCAR is here to provide the necessary resources and information in order to help anyone achieve the American dream of owning a home,” said Mr. Walldorf.
