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.

Sellers – Start Your Engines!

The spring real estate market starts in January - and even better there's no snow yet!

The spring real estate market starts in January - and even better there's no snow yet!

Every January it seems the real estate market is in the same place – buyers are ready, sellers aren’t.

After real estate market activity ground to a halt for the holidays (and half the real estate agents in town went on vacation) I was hoping for a good selection of new listings on our weekly tour.  Instead we had just one property to see yesterday – a new conversion on Porter Street in Somerville with two very nice condos near Porter Square.

That means it’s been three weeks with few new listings.  And it’s really been longer than that since things slow down by Thanksgiving.

The buyers are champing at the bit. 

With few new properties listed for sale, many houses and condos that had been on the market for months were put under agreement over  the last 6 – 8 weeks.  Inventory levels have dropped.

But the buyers are ready and itching to get and out and see places. 

If you are planning to sell your home this spring – spring is here!  This can be a good time to list your home for sale.  You’ll have eager buyers and less competition than later in the season when many more properties will be put up for sale.

Are you thinking about selling this spring?  I’d love to talk to you and can be reached by email or by phone at 617-504-1737

    Oh so true Liz. Buyers are ready, sellers aren’t. I too have several buyers chomping at the bit waiting for those new listings to pop up on the MLS.

    The funny thing is I get regular searches to my site asking the question “when is the best time to list a home?” Apparently the word is not out yet that spring comes a whole lot earlier in real estate than on the calendar.

    Hope lots of sellers read this post and of course if they have a home to sell in Cambridge they give you a call!

    Hi Denise! Our mortgage guy commented today that he’s very busy with new pre-approvals – another sign that buyers are out and about and ready to go. Definitely a good time to list a house or condo for sale.
