VANCOUVER, BC - (Marketwired - April 19, 2013) - Century 21 Canada and international TV outdoor designer, Carson Arthur announced the launch of the Century 21 Canada Open House Weekend Blitz to be held on May 4 and May 5, 2013 across Canada.
A vital component of this campaign is to help homeowners realize the impact of curb appeal on the value of their homes.
"It's important to launch this initiative at a time of year when property value is on consumers' minds," said Don Lawby, President of Century 21 Canada. "Our System members are at the frontlines of the industry, and their role is to educate consumers on getting the most from their real estate investments."
Century 21 Canada Open House Weekend Blitz will offer valuable landscaping tips by Arthur on social media throughout the campaign to help consumers make informed upgrades to their outdoor spaces.
"I'm looking forward to getting home buyers and sellers excited about the potential value in their green-spaces," said Arthur. "A recent Gallup study indicated that landscaping can add up to 15% to a home's value."
Along with valuable tips, Century 21 Canada is also offering a contest where consumers can enter online to win a landscape design package: Arthur will personally visit and design the winner's outdoor space, then present them with a $1200 Black & Decker yard maintenance prize pack. Consumers can get a promo code at a Century 21 Canada open house on May 4 or 5, 2013 to receive 21 additional entries when they re-enter online!
The contest is open to residents of Canada (excluding Quebec) and closes at midnight on May 5, 2013.
