Get to NoMi Home Buyers Tour on Sunday!

Post and photo by the Hawthorne Hawkman

The last time we had a Get to NoMi home buyers tour, CM Hofstede read a mayoral proclamation of "Get to NoMi day." Here on Johnny Northside, we believe that EVERY DAY can be a Get to NoMi day. NoMi Realtors and others active in the Get to NoMi movement are keeping up their work in that same spirit.

On Sunday, April 11, another NoMi Home Buyers Tour will take place at the 42nd Avenue Station beginning at 11 a.m. Lists of homes can be picked up between 11 and 1, and homes are available to tour between noon and 3 p.m. According to the event's Facebook site, the number of homes on the tour currently stands at 40. The days of purchasing a $7,900 house may be gone, but prices range from a still affordable $59,000 to rather upscale $349,000.

There is no word whether the dinosaur by Ken Farkash will make an appearance.

(Do not click "Read More," but do Get to NoMi!)

Wow, I guess you can see what the readers of this blog value. Not a single comment on a neighborhood home tour. But 56 comments about a guy urinating. Now, that is definitely substantive!

I suppose most of us already live here in NoMi. While it is wonderful that there is another home tour on Sunday it doesn't hit us quite the same as the other, more thought provoking, posts as I assume most of us are not currently looking for new homes.

I could post a comment that says "yay" in response to this post but that's just silly.

Anon 7:39 is right about this one, Axel. Even the way I wrote this post was much more of an informative style than something that would generate discussion. And often times a comment thread picks up steam on its own based on comments not even germane to the original post.

Like comments about comments, for instance.

Hawkman, your comment was a really poignant one. I had never really thought about the comments based on comments phenomenon before. So many thought provoking comments here on this blog.
