Largest coordinated event of its type on Staten Island provides a great opportunity for buyers

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y.  (May 5, 2021) – If you an aspiring first-time home buyer whose plans were delayed by the COVID-19 crisis, or a pandemic-weary homeowner seeking a house that better suits your needs, you won’t want to miss Staten Island’s Open House Weekend.

Presented by Realtor members of the Staten Island Multiple Listing Service (SIMLS) and the Staten Island Board of Realtors® (SIBOR) Saturday May 22, and Sunday, May 23, the two-day opportunity – respecting federal, state, and local COVID-safety guidelines – is the largest coordinated event of its type in the borough, providing home buyers with a perfect opportunity to safely explore homes across the Island.

“Purchasing a home is often one of the most important decisions in a person’s life and deciding on a particular house comes with many options,” said Sandy Krueger, CEO of SIBOR. “The pandemic has caused many people to redefine their needs and priorities. Home buyers require a clear idea of what features are important to them and know where they are willing to compromise. Open houses can be helpful in guiding them to a comfortable decision.”

As Island local real estate professionals greet visitors at the open houses, they will be available to provide guidance and insights into the social and financial benefits of homeownership in the borough.

Working with a Realtor can be a real asset,” Krueger said. “Staten Island Realtors have a unique understanding of what buyers value in our local market. Their expertise and knowledge can help you achieve the dream of homeownership.”
