    Summer ...and the Spring market... have arrived!

    1) We break down the number for you. Inventory is still down year-to-date approximately 25%, but remarkably June MTD is up 37%. What's this mean?

    2) 168 Tremont St, Newton. This is Avi's new listing we talked about last week. It got 60 showings in 3 days, and received 14 offers. We talk strategy and how it happened .

    3) How are showings happening now in a Covid-19 world? It's on a spectrum from dangerously cavalier to DEFCON 1 . We talk best practices.

    4) We discuss two new listings in Brookline that caught our eye:

    24 Jordan Road, Brookline, a single-family on Corey Hill with 2,543 square feet, 3 beds, 2 full 1 half bath, 1 garage, salt water swimming pool, and solar panels. List Price: $1,885,000

    On the Market: an affordable single-family, and high end resales

    This week we discuss a new Accent Realty listing at 168 Tremont Street, Newton, an affordable 5-bedroom single family home, with driveway and attractive fenced back yard, in Newton, listed for $689,000. Avi talks about his strategy for a property that needs work. http://168tremont.avirealestate.com/

    We also talk about several high-end recently constructed homes that are for sale after relatively short ownership tenures - and at significantly increased prices. One is 33 Winthrop Road, Brookline, a gorgeous town house built by Ron. What does it mean, and what does it portend for the market?
