BBBB for the Week of Sept 13, 2020: 🏘️ Coming Soon! 🎞️ 🍿

in Becky's Best Bungalow Bets, Heights

Hello BBBB Friends:

Welcome back! I've enjoyed my end of summer break but I'm more than ready to get back to the business of real estate in the Heights and other close-in neighborhoods. I'm running a bit late this week due to some technical issues (my computer died 😧). We have a ton of catching up to do. Please scan my blog post Still on My List to see updated prices and contract status changes. Be sure to keep scrolling down to check out final sales prices on homes that closed while we were away! 

COMING SOON - WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
You might notice that among this week's featured listings, several are labeled "Coming Soon." Realtors are now able to post properties that are in the 'make-ready' process as Coming Soon on HAR. Realtors can view these properties but guess what? You can see them too, but only on Compass.Com (at least for now).  I would love to connect with you on Compass.com so that we can easily share searches and listings. To connect with me, click HERE.  Note that properties can stay in the Coming Soon status for up to 14 days before going live on HAR. Showings, however, are not permitted during this time. 

Have a great week!

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