    people… i dont know if we are in a mini bubble or not due to government intervention but the market is good right now. so get out there and make some money-stop arguing that market is wack or whatever. get to work!

    Not sure why Bradley’s all giddy looking at these numbers. Properties are sitting one to two months longer and sales are down…


    I hope you factored out the 2008 sales at the Clarendon now showing as ’10 sales…wink

    Mary, why stop there? Let me delete the W as well so we can reach a sales data number you like.

    Returning the *wink*

    If the numbers/averages hold through the end of the year then we’ll know it’s for real. If the March-May numbers are worse than Jan-March, then we know we have a problem. Spring should be on the up and up if it’s a trend.

    I do remember that when you compare Oct 08, back bay looked like it was on fire (that was the Mandarin closings). No subsequent year has been able to live up to those figures.

    Okay, for the sake of arguement I’ll provide you sales data w/o The Clarendon:

    1/1/09 – 3/6/09
    Avg sales price: $1,358,830
    Median sales price: $899.000
    Avg price per sq ftL $825.00

    Even if you take out The Clarendon avg. price per sq ft and avg sales price is higher than ’09.

    John, why are you catering to Mary? Be a man and stand up to her!

    Spoken like someone more interested in spin than discourse, BBroker. More information leads to better decisions for buyers, which apparently suits your agenda.

    Kudos for rising above that sort of thing, John, you continue to foster open dialog on the Boston market and demonstrate your high standards and integrity.

    Interesting numbers. Good to see some volume coming back to the market, but it looks like sellers have to hold out for a looooong time these days to get their price. Not a healthy sign for volume.

    “apparently suits your agenda” should have read, “apparently doesn’t suit your agenda”
