Great news! At 2 a.m. this Sunday morning, life will get a little brighter with the return of Daylight Saving Time. One less hour of sleep and resetting clocks in cars and small appliances are small prices to pay for more time in glorious sunlight! Time to come out of hibernation and hang out, workout and soak up the fresh air. 

Celebrate the gift of more daylight by touring these open house events this weekend. Warmer days are around the corner and these abodes have exactly what you need to enjoy fine Carolina weather – large decks, fenced-in yards, walkability to city hot spots, office spaces and yoga studios, gourmet kitchens, skyline views and much, much more. Daylight Saving Time is YOUR time to find a home that truly fits your lifestyle.
