Oak CliffWhen we asked Realtors last week to give us their cutest homes during our Thursday call for pitches, Bethanne Carter-Buffington with Colleen Frost, REALTORS told us about this adorable listing in Oak Cliff she said would make a perfect Tuesday Two Hundred.

“It’s a gorgeous Oak Cliff reno!” she said.

And she’s right. This 1924 cottage located at 2738 W. Brooklyn Ave. has been lovingly renovated, and is ready for a new family. How ready?

Getting the DirtAs we mentioned last week, we’ve debuted two new Facebook groups designed to provide a platform for the house hunter and the Realtor alike, and all those businesses also make homeownership possible.

This week’s roundup of open houses features two house that came to us during our Open House Roundup feature that we have on Tuesdays on Getting the Dirt, our open group that is a place to talk about trends, to post a story you wrote and ask for direct feedback, and is also home to regular posts like, “Pitch Me Please,” where we will ask Realtors to pitch us their best houses in the $200,000 to $700,000 price points; “Open House Roundup,” where Realtors will have the opportunity to point us to their open houses for the week; “Hip Pocket Monday;” and “Suburb Sunday,” where readers and Realtors will be able to weigh in on what suburb we will look at on Sunday.

Our CandysDirt.com Open Houses of the Week are listed by members of Getting the Dirt, and range in price from $378,000 to $515,000. Which ones will you visit? Want to see your open house in next Thursday’s roundup? Join Getting the Dirt! (more…)
