Best Fall Open Houses: Sept. 24-25

There's something about that "Open House" sign that acts like a magnet. Whether you're looking for a new place to live, keeping tabs on real estate in your neighborhood, or just angling for a sneak peek at someone else's private domain, the lure of an open door is powerful.

On this, the first official weekend of fall, we invite you to curl up by the fireplace with a nice hot cup of cider and sneak a peek at autumn's best open houses. What's that you say? You don't have a fireplace? Then maybe you need one of these houses.
