Holidays are good for giving you time to go through old things.
While going through old papers today, I found this ad. I thought, "WOW! That is the first open house that I ever held when I started in the real estate business!" I started looking to see if was the same one that I thought it should be. I looked and looked! You can look and look and there seems to be a small problem......no address for the property. I did work for Lightle Dobbins & Lightle and the address for that office was Corner Arch & Apple. So that is not the address of the house. The date of the ad was 4/25/1980 and it was not my listing. The real estate agent who had it listed did not want to do it so I held it open with his permission. Thinking back, I remember only one visitor and they were neighbors. So perhaps now, 37 years later, I know why we had so few visitors. Prices HAVE gone up since then!
