It happened again at a party yesterday.  Our good friend Cynthia Fowler published her first book, Hooked Rugs: Encounters in American Modern Art, Craft and Design (The Histories of Material Culture and Collecting, 1700-1950) . Most of us were not used to taking a Saturday afternoon to party it up, but party we did, within the confines of a social set that would be celebrating a book such as this. Cynthia works with my wife at Emmanuel College in Boston.  Kathy started working at Emmanuel full time in Sept 20th of 1988.  I know this date specifically because it was two days after we were married.  Cynthia has been at the College for 6 years.  I know these people, they know I am in real estate, we discuss real estate but it is all casual. Meandering conversations about the market and the ...

A recent Boston Herald article on home sales for the Greater Boston area hints to the possibility that the market in Greater Boston is off to a quick start with low inventory. Further many agents within Keller Williams Realty Boston-Metro are reporting that this has resulted in property being put undergreement in days not weeks or months and that buyers need to react quickly. Is it possible that many sellers finally get it (pricing their homes to sell as opposed to pricing high for room to negotiate)       Medford MA Single Family Market Update As of February 24, 2012 Units On The Market: 42 homes (of which 13 are flagged as having offers pending satisfaction of some form of commitment like financing). Units Under Agreement: 26 homes (of which 9 have market times less than 45 days). Thi...
