bostonkayakguy: Spring Market Snapshot - 03/05/10 07:49 AM
For sale, but not for long - The Boston Globe http://bit.ly/aTr1yb
 
One of my clients is featured - and since publication she has been in 2 more multiple bidding situations!
 
If your home has been updated, and has been priced according to market value, then it will sell.
 
Houses that linger on the market tend to be a combination of not having been modernized, less than ideal location, and sellers who insist on pricing that reflects what they "want" rather than what the home's value is.
 
Obviously there can be other impacting variables, but for the most … (1 comments)

bostonkayakguy: Natick, Needham, and Wellesley Real Estate Trends...June 2009 - 07/23/09 08:03 PM
Results Are In!..Local Real Estate Market… Wellesley, Needham, Natick
As I have reported earlier this year the market varies greatly by town.
Needham and Natick are demonstrating stability and equilibrium with sales and inventory in balance.
Wellesley on the other hand has seen both sales units and dollar volume plummet by 42.8%  and 51.3% respectively.

Combine drastically lower sales in Wellesley with inventory that has skyrocketed 74.8% and you get a market significantly out of  balance.
Perhaps sellers are trying to out wait cautious buyers?  More likely, by waiting to reduce their asking prices, sellers will ultimately have to … (0 comments)

Walter Cronkite…Remembered Posted on July 18, 2009 by bostonkayakguy |  Phoenix has become one of my favorite places over the past few years.
