A Momentary Pause

Away Goes the Rabbit - and Back to Work We Go

Away Goes the Rabbit - and Back to Work We Go

Whether they celebrate the holiday or not, Easter provides an excused absence for Cambridge real estate agents – the last day until Memorial Day to grab a day off in the spring real estate market.

For buyers, it’s a bit frustrating because relatively few new properties are listed for sale the week before the holiday. 

Not to worry – this week and next there’s likely to be plenty of new listings coming on the market to make up for the week off.

I’ll be back with my favorites from our Wednesday preview – it should be a long tour!

Cambridge Real Estate Agents On Tour

I think this is my favorite kitchen - ever. 23 Bellis Circle

I think this is my favorite kitchen - ever. 23 Bellis Circle

I love my job.

There’s lots to like about being a real estate agent in Cambridge. It’s good to have work that you enjoy – seven days a week! 

Cambridge real estate agents have the opportunity to tour properties during broker previews, office caravans and open houses.  As a confirmed house enthusiast the chance to see so many interesting houses and condos is one of the best parts of my job – valuable too since I get an early look at properties that might fit my clients’ wish lists.

Our Coldwell Banker office tour is the highlight of the week.  We see a long list of houses and condos during a tour that typically runs for three or more fast paced hours. 

Last week’s snow canceled our tour so today’s was particularly rich. We saw one fabulous property after another.  It was one of the best tours I can remember and that’s saying a lot.

Some of the new listings on tour included:

…A stylishly renovated two-bedroom with a fireplace on Mass Ave near Davis Square for $350,000

…A townhouse at the Brickworks for $399,585. It has three bedrooms, 2.5 baths and direct entry from the garage.  Even on a gloomy day I appreciated the neighborhood views from the upper levels. 

…An extraordinary jewel box of a renovated single family on Bellis Circle for $735,000. It’s right out of a magazine – simply stunning.

…A huge house-like condo on Trowbridge Street with exceptional oak paneling and woodwork. It has three bedrooms, two baths and garage parking and is listed for $699,000.

…A two-bedroom, two-bath condo on Norfolk Street beautifully decorated by the artist-owner and listed for $499,000.

…A newly renovated two-bedroom condo on Pearl Street near Central Square. This house – the before-version – was my listing and I had eagerly anticipated seeing the transformation. Wow! It is sleek, stylish and thoughtfully renovated. The condo has parking and central air and is listed for $487,000.

…Three corner units at The Regatta – on the 10th floor, 14th floor, and 16th floor. I’m not sure I would ever leave home if I bought one of these condos.  It would be too hard to pull myself away from the view.  I felt like a cat – mesmerized by the little cars below driving round and round the traffic loop.  The Tobin, the Zakim, Boston’s skyscrapers, planes heading towards Logan, the trains pulling into the North Station, the boats heading out to the harbor – a visual feast spread out in front of you. The condos are listed for $499,000 to $550,000.

Here’s a chance to see some of the new listings from our tour.  Click on the small photo for more information and additional photographs.  And if you have questions about any of these properties or something else that you see give me a call at 617-504-1737. I’d be delighted to help.
