Sunday Opens (8/31/14)

Sunday, August 31st, 2014

Happy Labor Day to you. You're running out of days to wear white, and, maybe, to set up group activities at the beach.

Have you noticed, for whatever reason, no matter the weather, that you just don't get the same crowds on the sand when the calendar flips to September?

The kids heading back to school this week brought an abrupt end to the summery feeling of Summer, and next week, as AYSO soccer begins, it's going to feel like October in a hurry.

We did take note of something right away this week – the real estate market seemed to go straight from 0 to 60 from its languorous August pace.

Just a little bit of new listing activity for the moment, but watch out, it's coming.

As always, to plan your open-house tours for this week, try this Redfin map
