58 people walked in the door....

So, I keep reading the awful news about the market and how Brookline has just been lucky so far to avoid the downturn. People comment that the turn is coming and those of us in Brookline should just wait.

Well, I had 58 people walk into my open house last weekend. All of the guests seemed pretty interested in buying and they are all finding a reduced housing supply environment. I also know that compared to the first two months of 2007 my company has seen the same exact sales volume in the Newton/Brookline markets. We will see what "match week" at the hospitals brings us, but the Brookline housing stock is selling incredibly well right now.

In terms of market stats, the condominium median sales price in the first two months of the year when compared to the same period from last year has increased from $415,500 to $432,500. There are many more stats we can share, but many people always say stats are old news. The 58 people who visited my listing on Sunday tell the true story.
