single family: Wayland MA 01778 Single Family Housing Report Feb 2012 - 03/12/12 11:06 PM
More homes have come on the market in Wayland.  It seems as though the people who were waiting for the Spring market have jumped into action. With 102 properties listed in Wayland and 82 of them Active sales there is lots of inventory to review.  Days on Market are still way high for this town.  it is good to see the Sold DOM is considerably lower than the Active’s and Under Agreement listings.  The other thing to notice here is that the homes that were sold are a bit smaller than the average home for sale in the town.

single family: Wayland, MA 01778 Single Family Housing Report Dec 2011 - 01/09/12 09:47 AM
The news has been overall good the last month or so.  The National Association of Realtors, Mass association and Realtors and several other sources are reporting good statistics for the country.  The Boston Area has done better through this downturn than most of the country, but these numbers last month for Wayland are dismal.  With the Days on Market going up and up in almost all categories is not great news.  Looking at the average list price of $1,408,863 and the sales and under agreement prices of $591,557 and $757000 you can see why some properties are just sitting.

single family: Weston, MA 02493 Single Family Housing Report Dec 2011 - 01/05/12 02:01 AM
Weston, MA 02493 Single Family Housing Report Dec 2011 shows there were only 87 homes that show up in the Active, Under Agreement, Sold, Expired and Canceled lists for this month. That is down from the last couple of months. Reports in the media show that the slide of housing prices is coming to an end, something that Weston has seen already. With the election season upon us we can expect that there will be some work getting done in DC and that is good. Jobs and housing should be at the top of every politicians list. Now to the numbers.

Weston, MA 02493 Single Family Housing Report November 2011 is filled with some interesting statistics.  Hey, is anyone else tired of the misinformation that the media is spewing regarding real estate.  Homes represent a backbone of our economy.  Think about it, architecture, design, building, machinery, appliances, skilled labor, automobiles, landscaping, glass, fixtures and all sorts of everything else goes into our homes.  A single family home can represent hundreds of industries and their survival. Why we can’t get on the right page with our information is baffling to me.  These statistics help weed out misinformation and conjecture.  Let’s get at … (4 comments)

Home for the Holidays, New home for the holidays. 4 Helock Road, Wayland, MA 01778 Dudley Pond Cape with Fireplace
Here comes December, the last month of the year.  So much to do, so many things to complete, do you feel overwhelmed?  Now is the time for action, enough with the research, the websites, all the data, and what is it with the data, it is all so confusing and contradictory? Real estate is made complicated by your viewpoint.  Are you the buyer, or the seller?  Are you the agent, or the other agent?  Are you the lawyer, or the other … (4 comments)

MAURICE K. SMITH, Renowned Architect
63 West Cliff, Weston, MA 02493
Renowned architect Maurice K. Smith is known for designing exceptional houses. Although he was influenced by mid-century modernism, he believed that a building shouldn’t stand on its own like a piece of sculpture. He felt buildings not only need to be integrated into the surrounding environment, but also that there must be an interconnection between each building and the people who use it.
63 West Cliff, Weston, MA Kitchen
The basis for Smith’s ideas about architecture were formed right here in Massachusetts. Smith came here in 1952 from New Zealand … (1 comments)

Milton, MA 02186 Single Family Housing Report Oct 2011  With a total of 167 homes involved in the market last month this is less than Wellesley, but more than Wayland.  Each town is different and so you can’t assume anything from the comparison.  Like most of the other towns surrounding Milton there are more homes Active in the market than in any of the other categories.  Milton is supporting an impressive 96% of its price in the Listing Price versus Sales price war.  This is a very good number and exceeds the numbers from … (0 comments)

single family: Boston, Back Bay MA 02116 Condominium Housing Report Oct 2011 - 11/04/11 02:04 AM
Back Bay Housing Report Oct 11 The Boston Globe reported that prices are going up, they also reported that prices are going down and that prices are steady, all this in the last week in various reports.  It is dizzying.  Most of the homes in the market are actively being sold.  The amount of time on the market is slowly climbing as is the average price.  It is often forgotten that the buyer determines the price of a home and not the seller.  The seller wants the most for their property, but it is the buyer who determines what it is … (1 comments)

single family: Weston MA 02493 Single Family Housing Report October 2011 - 11/03/11 02:47 AM
Right now in Weston there are a lot of homes on the market with not too much movement towards closing. The days on market are going up and the Average List Price to Average Sale Price is dropping to 90%.While the market is slow and trending slow there have been sales and there are listing under agreement.  To be successful with the sale of your home you need to be working with a solid marketing plan to get your listing in front of the right people.  I am heartened to know that December is quite often the second largest closing month … (3 comments)

437 South, Weston, MA 02493
Value homes in Weston, the kind of home you could move right into if you could live with their color and decoration schemes, are rare on the market.  The two homes for the one price of $900,000 on one large lot in Weston is rarer still. Both homes have been recently updated with paint.  The larger 4 bedroom home was updated with a new kitchen, tile, granite, appliances, a finished basement, painting on the inside and out and professional landscaping.
These homes are a compound like of their own.  Old growth trees and landscaping allow the … (2 comments)

single family: Weston Home Featured Listing Virtual Tour, Frank Lloyd Wright like home - 10/20/11 01:00 PM
I am excited to be sharing this home.  It is so unlike most homes of the Boston Area. There are many, many fine homes in this area with the vast majority of them being Colonial. No surprise there as we are one of the original Colonial states and our homes go back to those days.  This home is a contemporary and it is built in the block style of architecture that Frank Lloyd Wrigt and the architect of this home Maurice K Smith used in their thinking of the home. 
Each room is designed for optimal light, air, room and flow.  … (5 comments)

 14 Overlook Road in Wayland, MA 01778 is a home to grow.  With 7000 square feet of living space and all the amenities that can be put into a home like this it is a wonderful home for the discriminating home buyer.  At this point in time this home is the largest and most luxurious in it’s neighborhood, but that won’t be for long.  As Wayland grows and changes this neighborhood filled with some older homes will give way to homes just like this listing.  Located not too far from the major highways it makes for an easy commute to anywhere … (5 comments)
