Open houses alert!
Two beautiful homes just recently hit the market, and are featured this Sunday by the Re/Max team.

This could be your next investment property, as it is located near Mohawk College, or an updated home for first-time buyers. Take a peek at this house on Sunday from 2-4pm. For those wanting a bit more of that rural life, but with the convenience of city life a quick hop away, head to 2051 HWY 6 Highway Puslinch on Sunday and view this cute bungalow’s open house. Recently renovated, this home is move-in ready – perfect timing for new buyers to enjoy this house’s large backyard this summer.
