Open Housing

Almost every single weekend we like to stalk the local Old Town house listings to see what is new to the market and what is going to be open each Sunday. If an old house peaks our interest, we head out to snoop around, rain or shine, freezing cold or blistering sun. We're obsessed, we know, but we're passionate about these old homes.

One thing that's kind of cool about living in Old Town Alexandria for as long as we have, and the fact that we've made a habit of visiting open houses for the whole time we've lived here, is that we're starting to see a lot of houses that we've previously...

Alex and I spend countless hours touring open houses, walking the streets, and admiring the homes, buildings, landscapes, and interesting details. When we're on vacation,...

This past weekend Wendy and I took a little break from our HVAC attic work to get cleaned up and venture out into the sunlight. The weather was nice and the open house market was bubbling with a few new properties. Far be it of us to miss a good...
