"September sales tank..." except they don't.

Ah, my nemesis Kimberly "Chicken Little" Blanton is at it again. Fear mongering, inflammatory statements that brush the far side of the truth, and simple over generalization about something that cannot and MUST NOT be over-generalized.

On October 9th I started my post by stating I was providing numbers you should see in the Globe but you won't. I then put together a press release that I emailed to various media outlets, including the Globe. Please contact me if you would like a copy of it.

Tucked at the bottom of the business section piece on the market are quotes and numbers indicating that the Greater Boston market is actually UP. Take a look at the numbers, make your own conclusion. Yes, the market in other areas of Massachusetts is not nearly as strong as we have here in Brookline. I would not give you a market analysis of your home using sales stats from Worcester, so why should you be swayed by stats from their market either? The Globe is doing a disservice to the sellers of the Greater Boston area. They are spitting in the face of arguably their single largest revenue source, and they do not take the responsibility they have as a respected news resource seriously enough. If you read Kimberly's piece and are thinking about selling your home you will most likely panic. Please take a deep breath, take a look at Brookline's numbers and you will see that your investment is still as secure as it ever has been.

As a quick post script, tonight you will be able to see me roughly at 7:30 being interviewed by the Brookline Board of Selectmen for appointment to the Zoning Board of Appeals. There has been a lot of controversy surrounding the Board recently, and I hope to be a part of restoring confidence in the process. For more detail tune into BATV Channel 23.
