Becky's Best Bungalow Bets for Dec 19, 2021: A Very Short List + Things to Do

Hello BBBB Friends:

New listing activity has slowed to a crawl. In fact, I only have one to share today and it is at the higher end of the market. There were still buyers in the market this week though and I have a couple of new contracts as well as a bunch of final sales to report from among homes that are Still on My List.

Looking for something to do over the holiday break? Our friends over at 365 Things to Do in Houston, have once again put together exhaustive lists of everything from things to do with kids, to live concerts and nightlife, to sporting events. Do check before heading out for scheduling changes due to Covid-19 concerns.

Wishing you a safe and happy holiday week.

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