Agents all over town participate in the event, which is supported by the Pikes Peak Association of Realtors, every year. Houses listed for sale open up to the public and people have a chance to walk through without making an appointment.

The National Association of Realtors event makes the weekend the busiest open house weekend of the year and an event on most sellers’ and homebuyers’ radar.

“It was very successful last year,” said Jack Beuse, a broker associate at Paradigm Real Estate and chair-elect of PPAR. “And we expect it to be even more successful this year.”

He said it’s an opportunity to bring buyers and sellers together and to show off properties to potential buyers.

“I’ll probably be sitting at two different houses on two different days,” he said.

The event kicks off the spring and summer season, which has historically been the busiest time of year for residential real estate sales.
