You can all come out of hiding. Temperatures are supposed to be back above zero for the weekend, and I have got the perfect way to celebrate for you! Remember when realtors had open houses every weekend? It doesn’t happen very often anymore, but RE/MAX Spruce Grove wants to gift you with an enjoyable afternoon, while sharing this valuable method of house hunting. We are having an Open House Blitz this Sunday, February 12th, from 1-4pm. There will be 13 homes available to view. Come out with the family, plan a “date” around it, or use it as some “me time”. Pack a picnic lunch or make a plan to eat out afterwards and talk about all of the homes you saw. Come out and see if the home you’ve dreamed of is just waiting for you.
