A Boston broker tells a fair-weather story

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) August 2023 was the warmest August on record.

The average global land and ocean surface temperature in August was 2.25 degrees F (1.25 degrees C) above the 20th-century average of 60.1 degrees F (15.6 degrees C), ranking as the warmest August in the 174-year global climate record.

New England had it’s warmest August and Warmest summer on record.

The long-range forecast

The long-range forecast for fall and winter is interesting. It could be warmer than average or colder than average or there could be more or less snow than average.(That sounds like one of my Boston condo pricing predictions)

We do know that El Niño will persist through the Northern Hemisphere winter 2023-24. That means it might be a warmer wetter winter but apparently it also means that we might experience the dreaded and horrific polar vortex.

Today is the last day of Summer. The fall equinox and the first day of autumn arrives on Saturday, September 23, 2023, at 01:50 A.M. CDT in the Northern Hemisphere.

My Boston condo for sale predictions for the remainder of 2023

My Boston condo for sale forecast for fall and winter is that there will be fewer condominums sales as higher interest rates will keep sellers staying where they are rather than moving and getting a new mortgage for a higher interest rate. Home sales are somewhat seasonal. We usually see the smallest number of home sales in December and the highest number of home sales in April.

I don’t know how this conversation started, but as I was having drinks with a Back Bay condo broker and a Seaport agent the topic came up on how to deal with a bigot.

One of the real estate agents mentioned, apparently a true story, he heard which I would like to share with you.

One night when Al Roker was still a young meteorologist in Cleveland, one evening news anchor, Doug Adair, was swatted on the head by a homeless African American man outside the studio. After the broadcast the following day, Adair asked Roker. “Al, I don’t know if you heard, but last night after the 11 o’clock news one of your people attacked me.” Everyone in hearing distance drew a shocked breath, however, Roker turned to him and asked, “Doug, why would a weatherman attack you?”

And that, my readers, how you deal with conflict, and it’s how he is one of the most beloved network fixtures.
