East Cambridge Houses For Sale

Inventory has been tight all year but it looks like one sliver of the Cambridge real estate opened up a bit this weekend.  Four new listings for East Cambridge houses for sale priced between $450,000 and $600,00 came on the market this week.  Cambridge real estate buyers hoping to find a condo or single family house near Kendall Square, Boston and MIT have some good choices this weekend.

Somerville and Cambridge houses in this price range have been selling quickly, more often than not with multiple offers.   Cambridge and Somerville single family houses with asking prices between $450,000 and $600,000 that were listed recently were on the market an average of only 17 days. In fact, more than half sold within one week.

Here are the newly listed houses for sale in East Cambridge:

47 Harding Street, Cambridge has two bedrooms, two baths, and a rarity for East Cambridge – two parking spaces.  It’s listed for $459,900.

125.5 Spring Street, Cambridge is a restored Cape with three bedrooms, two baths, and a nicely landscaped patio / garden.  It’s new to the market at $460,000.

209 Hurley Street, Cambridge was a wonderful surprise when we saw it on tour on Wednesday.  It’s tucked away off the street and a 2005 renovation resulted in a house as modern as can be. It has two bedrooms, 1.5 baths, and a fenced in yard with patio for $487,000.

4 Dickinson Street, Cambridge has three bedrooms, 1.5 baths, one parking space, a fireplace in the living room, and a landscaped yard with patio. It’s priced at $599,000.

East Cambridge provides great access to Kendall Square, MIT, the Charles River and Boston. It’s an architecturally rich neighborhood growing ever more popular with real estate buyers. Let’s see what the weekend brings for the newly listed East Cambridge houses for sale.  I’m betting it’s a busy weekend!

Best Places to Trick or Treat in Cambridge

Cambridge Halloween trick or treatingBest Places to Trick or Treat in Cambridge  Halloween is coming up and maybe you’re wondering what are the best neighborhoods for trick or treating in Cambridge – where you’ll find the most fun – and the best candy.

I love getting trick or treaters and each year as I filled my candy bags with multiple treats hoped that my house would become a Halloween destination spot. But I’ve come to terms with the fact that my street can’t begin to compete with some of these top Cambridge neighborhoods on October 31st.  Here are some of the Best Places to Trick or Treat in Cambridge

East Cambridge Trick or Treating

East Cambridge is a popular trick or treating neighborhood.   The blocks bordered by Fulkerson and First Street and Cambridge Street and Charles Street are thickly settled and make for a really good ratio of candy to blocks walked.  A big part of the draw is the haunted house on Charles Street.  The Vendettis have been decorating their house for Halloween for more than twenty years. Hundreds of children visit the Halloween house – it’s not to be missed. There’s no admission charged but last year Mrs. Vendetti asked kids and their parents to bring a canned good for donation to the Sacred Heart Food Pantry.  Vist this Halloween wonderland on Charles Street between Sciarappa Street and 5th Street.

Halloween on Dudley Street, Cambridge

The homeowners on Dudley Street in North Cambridge do it up for Halloween.  Residents spend weeks preparing for the event – choosing a theme and planning decorations.  Dudley Street between Cedar and Reed Street is closed to traffic and hundreds of trick or treaters throng the block.  The theme last year – you can see some of the Halloween houses in the slideshow below – was Las Vegas.  A resident’s video about Halloween on Dudley Street shows the amazing creativity and fun you’ll find here on October 31st.  Dudley Street in North Cambridge is hopping on Halloween.

Crescent Street Cambridge Halloween

Another Cambridge hotspot on Halloween is Crescent Street in the Agassiz neighborhood between Porter Square and Harvard Square. Crescent Street is one block long and runs from Sacramento Street to Oxford Street.  Residents move their cars and the street is blocked to traffic and lined with jack-o-lanterns carved during a neighborhood party the day before.  Like Dudley Street, there’s a theme each year – this year it’s “Monsters.”  All are welcome and one homeowner estimated that more than 600 children trick or treated on Crescent Street last year. The Halloween party on Crescent Street is the place to be for trick or treaters  from 5 to 8 pm.

Halloween Open Houses at Cambridge Fire Stations

Cambridge Fire Stations will be hosting Halloween Open Houses from 2 to 4 pm on October 31, 2010.  Kids and parents can visit their neighborhood fire station to view the fire trucks and get free glow sticks and trick or treat bags compliments of the Cambridge Fire Department.  Candy has been donated by Cambridge Brands.
