Competitively Priced Single-Families Sell Close to Asking

Between January 1 and March 31, 2009, only four single-family homes sold in East Boston. None were bank owned (foreclosed) properties, one was a short sale, and three were regular sales.

Of the three “regular sales,” one property was a recently renovated 835 square foot, three bedroom, semi-attached row house on Everett Street. The list price was $189,000. The sale price was $174,000. The second property was a vacant and completely renovated 1,106 square foot house on Morris Street. The list price was $209,000. The sale price was $205,000. The third property was an older and larger 3,635 square foot home on St. Andrew’s Road. The list price was $329,000. The sale price was $265,000.

Even though there are many bank owned sales and short sales in East Boston, there still is a strong demand for decent housing—especially renovated properties. When a property is priced right, buyers will usually pay very close to asking price.
