hardhatIn late March, a home at the western end of Franklin Avenue was listed for sale, a dormered Cape just around around the corner from Verona High School. So close that you could wake up at 7:30 a.m. and not run afoul of the new tardiness policy. It was listed, back then, $349,000.

There’s a new listing for 161 Franklin Street this weekend and boy has it changed. The kitchen and both of the bathrooms have been given a complete makeover and central air has been installed. But all those updates come with a renovated price as well: It’s now listed at $439,000.

Even so, it’s not the most expensive of the three Verona real estate new listings this weekend, one of which is being sold through an online auction. There are also four open houses, but no price changes. Here’s what’s happening in each category, from lowest priced to highest:
