BBBB for the Week of July 26, 2020: 🏘️ Short List + Shout-Out for HRW 😋

in Becky's Best Bungalow Bets, Heights

Hello BBBB Friends:

After last week's bumper crop of new listings, this week was a bit disappointing with only 16 new single-family listings; however, contracting activity continued apace. I had to borrow a couple of listings from last week's bumper crop to round out my featured listings for the week. In addition, I have a few price changes and new contracts to report among homes that are Still on My List. To check out all of the changes, keep scrolling down!

HRW IS BACK!
One of the things I like best about writing BBBB is sharing local events and happenings and I can't wait until we get back to actually having local events and happenings! In the meantime, Houston Restaurant Weeks starts this Saturday and will continue through September 7th. This is a great opportunity to support our local restaurants and the Houston Food Bank! Most restaurants are offering a combination of dine-in and curbside options. As of today, here is a list of the participating Heights restaurants:
Alice Blue
BB's Tex-Orleans
Coltivare
Common Bond Bistro
Down House
Harold's
Kin Dee
Maison Pucha Bistro
Mastrantos
Brunch-$20; Lunch-$20; Dinner-$35 and $45. 

Have a great week and,

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