Weekend Open House Roundup 8/29 – 9/1: Holiday Househunt!


That exposed brick! /swoon

Labor Day weekend is upon us! Time to fire up the grill for one last summer cookout, prep the kiddos’ first-day-of-school duds, and enjoy wearing white before it’s officially a social faux pas. Believe it or not, it could also be the perfect time to buy a home! Logic dictates that real estate is slow over long holiday weekends, but that just means that you have a perfect opportunity to swoop in on the home of your dreams.

Who knows, one of these five Center City homes could be it for you! Open houses are somewhat scarce this weekend, owing to the holiday, but there are a few out there. I predict low traffic and a high likelihood of you being left alone to really get acquainted with these lovelies. Take a look at the homes, and plan your weekend visit!
