Let's say you write a local real estate blog, and 2 of the most interesting weekend opens to tout have found buyers so quickly, the first open – if it happens – is but a formality... a chance for the listing agent to meet you, not for you to see the house. What do you do?
You feature just one good open and wait for next week.
Debut opens now posted in escrow:
- 861 10th (5br/6ba, 4500 sq. ft.), started at $2.695m.
- 737 35th (5br/5ba, 3875 sq. ft.), started at $1.999m.
Now, we're not saying you can't traipse up the Hill or dash over to the northern Trees and see a nice house on Sunday – we just don't think you can buy those 2.

If you do get out & around this Sunday, please report back here on what you've seen, what you liked, didn't like, etc. Tree Section
(4br/3ba, 3325 sq. ft.) is the latest Tree Section remodel to carry the branding of a particular local builder as a mark of quality.
The last one, 632 30th
(5br/3ba, 3050 sq. ft.), sold immediately last month (see "MB Market Update for 4/30/10
") when priced at $1.789m
Walnut, somewhat bigger and in a terrific location unto itself, starts higher at $1.845m
The home's of mid-80s vintage, but, as we show with the kitchen pic here, the period's been swept away in a serious re-thinking of the house – interior-wise, anyway.
Get the whole picture at 1724 Walnut, open Sun. 2-4pm.
