7 Austin open houses to see this weekend

Given our ever-overheated real estate market, we thought it would be helpful to come up with some open house suggestions to narrow things down – even if you’re not looking to buy, because who doesn’t love to gawk a little real estate?

This week we’re mostly staying on the west side of town and finding a remarkable mid-century modern apartment, classic ranch house, and some groovy 1970s numbers near the lake.
