Weekend Opens (5/13-5/14/17)

By Dave Fratello | May 13th, 2017


 Last week we said, "Let's hear if for the parents."

This week, more simply: Let's hear it for the moms! A happy Mothers Day to one and all.

If you and Mom are looking at local real estate, you'll see 51 listings holding open houses this weekend, definitely one of the highest numbers we've seen. But take note, many opens will only occur on Saturday, so check the details on any listing you're interested in.

Running a brokers' open Friday at our new listing at 2100 Pine, we didn't get out to see the new crop of listings in person. For this reason, this week we're running only the official descriptions for each.

Our video this week is chock full of 14 new listings, wow. These include 621 8th and 927 N. Dianthus in the Hill Section, Dave's new listing at 2100 Pine, 222 17th in the Sand Section and more:   

Some mobile users and email subscribers will need to use this link to view the video.
