Whether you’re looking to buy or just enjoy checking out some great homes, open houses can be a fun and informative experience. Get a tour, a fresh drink, and maybe a house at the end of it.

This week, we’ve got five open houses to share with you.

Virginia Park

Based on the proximity of the first three homes, we recommend going on an open house tour of near west side historic districts this weekend.

This Virginia Park home is listed through Reozom Real Estate Services for $629,000. At 4,200 square feet, it’s the largest home on the list. Built in 1900, it’s also the oldest. The home has been well maintained and gently updated over the years. According to the listing, it’s currently got a tenant renting for $4,000 a month.

When: Call 313-354-1868 to schedule a viewing (while technically not an open house, we liked this place so much we wanted to include it)

Brush Park

Location, location, location. Right on the edge of downtown, this Brush Park condo is listed through Brandt Real Estate for $389,900. It’s a 2,114-square-foot end unit in a modern row house development from the early 2000s. The listing says there’s been many recent updates, including all new kitchen appliances.

When: Saturday, July 27 from noon - 3 p.m.

There’s no less than five open houses at the Park Shelton in late July and August. We’re not sure why there’s so many units in this historic building for sale all at once, but for years the Park Shelton had some of the city’s premier condos and apartments. The offerings range from $183,500 to a 1,660-square-foot unit that’s listed for $499,900.

When: Saturday, July 27 from 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. and many other days in August
