BBBB for theWeek of May 17, 2020: 🏘️ Top 4 + Fun Stuff! 🚴 🚴 🚴

in Becky's Best Bungalow Bets, Heights

Hello BBBB Friends:

This week I am featuring 4 new listings. In addition, I have a few price changes, new contracts and final sales to report for homes that are Still on My List. Be sure to scroll down to see all the details!

OPEN HOUSES RETURN
While in-person open houses have been happening these last couple of weekends, HAR has not been posting online making them difficult to find. HAR will begin publicizing in-person open houses this week so be prepared for a wild Memorial Day weekend! Virtual open houses will still be a thing and you can search for virtual open houses here.

FUN STUFF!
Adapting to our new normal, the Houston Heights Association Annual Bicycle Rally & Scavenger Hunt will be held as a 3-day event over the Memorial Day weekend beginning Saturday, May 23rd. This will give you more time to solve the clues and make it easier to maintain social distancing on the hunt! Both 5-mile and 15-mile routes will be offered. The event will end at 5 pm on Monday. This is a really fun event for adults and kids!

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

Becky
