open housesWe hear the question from time to time — are open houses really worth the time and effort? After finding several debates in various real estate and business publications, we took to Facebook and Instagram to ask our readers what they thought.

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…)

RichardsonAs you may have noticed, we’ve had a bit of a theme going this week at CandysDirt.com — we’ve been featuring homes in neighborhoods with great walkability and community feel, that are perfect for trick or treating and Halloween festivities. We solicited some suggestions from readers, too, just to make sure we didn’t miss anything.

This week’s slate of open houses come from one of those suggestions — the stretch of Waterview Drive between Belt Line Road and Arapaho Road in Richardson. Our insider told us that this enclave in west Richardson is always busy each Halloween, and “all the little cul-de-sacs add a lot more houses to the mix, too.”

We found three homes in three different price points that all have open houses this week in the neighborhoods around Richardson’s Waterview Drive that were perfect for our CandysDirt.com Open Houses of the Week. Which ones will you visit? (more…)
