Thinking about buying a house in Boston? Preview these open houses scheduled for this weekend.

If you’re considering buying a home in Boston this spring, then you should realize we’re already in May (!)—there’s no time to waste. Most sellers like to have their homes under agreement by Memorial Day. They do this so they can schedule their closings to occur before summer is in high gear and everyone’s focused on the hot weather and vacations.

So, if you’re buying, read up on the cost of buying a home in Boston, then head out to an open house or two scheduled for this weekend in a select number of neighborhoods:
