Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.

New Real Estate Listings – And Plenty of Them

Our Wednesday tour was all I expected it to be – long – very long – with plenty of properties new to the market in a wide range of prices.  Properties we visited ranged from a small Cambridge studio listed for $189,000 to a grand brick colonial in Belmont listed for $6,250,000. 

We visited 25 properties in all and saw new listings in Cambridge, Somerville, Belmont, Medford and Watertown.  Here are some of my favorites:

Our first stop was at 100-102 Fayette Street in Watertown.  Not your average two-family, this Greek Revival was charming and had a marvelous barn out back.  100-102 Fayette St. is listed for $629,000.

429 Norfolk Street, Somerville is a large, two-level three-bedroom condo in a David Aposhian building near Union and Inman Square listed for $489,000.

6 Cotttage Ave in the heart of Davis Square is bound to be popular.  It has two private patios (the one out back is huge) and a can’t-be-beat location.  Built just five years ago, it has the upscale kitchen, multiple baths, and open layout that buyers love.  It’s listed for $596,000.

80 Winslow Ave is also smack dab in the middle of Davis Square.  It’s a co-op, built just a few years ago.  Open and dramatic – you can’t help but exclaim when you walk in – it feels like a  loft but has a master suite, second bedroom and an office.  It also offers a private patio and garage parking.  80 Winslow Ave will be coming on the market for $689,000.

281 Pearl Street, Cambridge offers everything on buyers’ wish lists – parking, a private deck, in-unit laundry – plus vaulted ceilings, skylight, and lots of light. This one-bedroom condo in Cambridgeport is listed for $369,000.

Two new condos at 50 Alpine Street, Somerville abut the future extension of the bike path.  The condos are newly renovated and really fabulous.  The newly installed wide plank floors made from reclaimed wood were a hit. It was also my first sighting of Martha Stewart kitchen cabinets.  The Martha-kitchen wins points with me – Shaker style cabinets in a just-right shade of light green and beautiful marble counters.  The condos are coming on in the $350-370,000 range and seem very well priced.

Click on the small photos below to see more photographs and read about some of the new listings. If you’d like to see any of these, or any other properties that catch your eye, give me a call at 617-504-1737 or email me.  I’d be happy to help.

    Brother – lots of nice new listings… but are the ones already on the market getting much activity?

    It appears that Cambridge has quite a spread of home pricec ranges – from the mid 300’s to well over a million.

    Hopefully, the new homes on the market will be absorbed as quickly as they come on – to lucky homeowners and not flippers or banks!

    Hi Bob ~ Cambridge has a fairly stable and strong real estate market. We’ve weathered the last few years pretty well. And yes – the price range is broad – from condos that start below $300,000 to single families that are mainly priced in the $1M – $3M+ range.
