Weekend Opens (7/23-7/24/16)

Saturday, July 23rd, 2016

It has to be said: Summer is turning strange. 

We began the morning Saturday with a weird orange glow, owing to the sun coming through smoke from an unfortunate, large fire in the LA area. It felt a bit like autumn had come early. By midday, rolling fog blanketed the beach.

The absolute rush of real estate inventory is also quite a surprise. July and August would normally be months when sellers would not choose to list. But we saw plenty of debut listings this week.

More than once recently, we've heard the hypothesis that potential sellers may be trying to cash in as near to the peak as possible, worried about what's next. We'll see.

This week's video features 11 new listings, including a newer Spanish at 3500 Blanche, major remodels at 1641 23rd
