BBBB for the Week of Sept 15, 2019: 🏘️ 6 Quick Picks + Fun Stuff 🚴

in Becky's Best Bungalow Bets, Heights

Hello BBBB Friends:

It was a good week in the Heights for new listings! Here's hoping this is the beginning of the fall busy season.  I have selected 5 new listings to feature today. Additionally, I have changes to report for properties Still on My List including 5 price reductions and 6 new sales contracts. Keep scrolling down to see all of the changes!

HEADS UP:  HEIGHTS ANNUAL BIKE RALLY IS IN 3 WEEKS!🚴
One of my favorite Heights events, the Houston Heights Association Annual Bicycle Rally and Scavenger hunt will be held on Saturday, October 5. This is a great event open to riders of all ages and is designed as a casual, self-paced ride. This is a great way to see and learn more about the Heights. (The clue list describes a sight or object that can be seen along the rally course.) Choose between the 3 mile route ($15pp)  or a 15 mile route ($25pp). This year there will also be a kick-off event the night before at the Eureka Heights Brewery. Enjoy a fun-filled evening of games, food and drink ($50pp).  Plenty of time to get a group of friends together to work as a team! Get all the details HERE

Let’s go look at houses or talk about selling yours!!!
