Is there a cost for me to participate? Do I get paid for having my home on the Tour?

There is no charge for homeowners on the Tour, and homeowners will not receive money for having a home on the Tour. Many participants say it provides the incentive they’ve needed to get projects finished or the house cleaned, or leverage to get a contracted job done on time.

Commercial sponsors, such as the companies who have been involved in the home’s construction/remodeling, often help hold the homes open and they do pay an entry fee to have their companies advertised. 

Those homes not involving professionals (and some that do) rely on family, friends, and neighborhood boosters to help staff the homes during the tour.
