As part of its continuing focus on residential development, the Barnesville Economic Development Authority (EDA) will be sponsoring a citywide real estate open house Sunday, July 13, from 1-4:30- p.m. in conjunction with the Clay County Fair. Organizers hope every home in the area on the market will be open during that time, including "for sale by owner" homes.
To promote the event, the EDA is planning an aggressive advertsing campaign in the Fargo-Moorhead area. Maps showing the location, description and price of each of the open houses will be distributed free at local merchants.
In the past, the citywide real estate open house has been well attended and has resulted in the sales of several homes each year the event was held.
