2% Realty looking to set a record this weekend with the World's Longest Open House in support of the Calgary Food Bank

CALGARY, AB--(Marketwired - June 14, 2017) - From Friday, June 16 at 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 18th, 82 Cougar Plateau Way SW will be open for anyone who'd like to see it at all hours, day and night. "The plan is to hold the World's Longest Open House this weekend and to our knowledge, it's never been done before." says Roy Almog, founder of Calgary based 2% Realty.

Visitors to the open house are encouraged to bring food or cash donations for the Calgary Food Bank. "They are a wonderful organization doing some amazing work in the communities we're operating in. We're pleased to be teaming up for this historic record-setting occasion."

Kate and Jonathan Love are the current homeowners who, like many Calgarians, are looking for a change. Kate says, "With two children and a busy life, one of the biggest challenges in selling a home is keeping it tidy for multiple showings." The solution is to hold an open house event that caters to busy families. Love smiles, "It's like a binge-showing."

While the home is on display, house-hunters and guests will receive free treats from Fiasco Gelato and other Calgary Food Trucks, they can participate in an interactive art experience with Calgary artist Dean Stanton and check out a live petting zoo from Butterfield Acres. After touring the home, all guests and potential buyers will also get a chance to win a stainless steel barbeque, which will be on display during the showing and raffled off at the end of the 56 hours.

"It's going to be a fun event where the community can come together in support of the Calgary Food Bank," Almog adds, "…and we can efficiently sell the house."

The home itself offers an ideal layout. The 4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom 2-storey home is a gem! With over 2500 square feet of finished living space, plus a finished basement, this property is ideal for the growing family. Well situated on a quiet suburban street backing onto a cul-de-sac, you'll enjoy a spacious great room with a large island kitchen, a full dining room and convenient upstairs laundry room. Almog says, "There's a lot of value there. It's a dream home for first-time home-buyers, people with a young family or people needing to downsize."

As for the world record, Almog says, "It will be the longest open house we've found. We're excited for people to be a part of it."

Almog and his team are keen to show the residence. He says, "It's a house that needs to be seen in person, and Calgarians will have 56 hours in which to do it!"
