The BBJ has a great slide show of former Celtics star Kevin Garnett’s Concord contemporary home, now up for sale at $4.85 million. It’s really impressive, especially the spacious interior. Too bad KG isn’t around anymore. He was good for the Celts and Boston. Luckily, he can’t take his home with him to Brooklyn.

After a robust summer season for the Massachusetts housing market, brace yourself: Real estate agents and brokers say buyers should expect more of the same as the fall selling season gets underway after the Labor Day holiday. Factors that left the (home buyers) disappointed in the spring are still in play: low inventories of homes [...]
NIMBY policies have prevented towns from building desperately needed new housing in Massachusetts, causing a housing shortage and absurdly high prices. Now it seems big national home builders are increasingly entering the Massachusetts market, if only because they’re the only ones that can afford the attorneys for all those planning and zoning commission meetings.

Actually, there’s not so much tension as there is wonderment over the transformation of Somerville, once the butt of numerous (and yet often affectionate) jokes about it tough, industrial, slightly dyfunctional ways. Our old [...]
Two housing-market observers — Scott Van Voorhis and Harold Brown — are both worried and perplexed by today’s state housing market, specifically fast-rising home prices in some areas.
