As Realtors we frequently hear the question "hows the market". And our reply is generally "pretty strong". Most people seem surprised by this response.
Just this past weekend a single family home came on the market at 55 Boylston Street it had 2 open houses that were both extremely well attended. Following the open houses, the listing agents received a total of 11 offers. That's right, 11 offers for 1 home. Needless to say, the home will go on to close at well above the asking price. Yes, it needs work, but once the work is completed it will make someone a very nice single family home in Jamaica Plainon a corner lot with garage parking.
So whenever we are asked the question, we do go on to say that we are blessed that we live and work in a community that has escaped some of the struggles of the national economy. Thankfully most people in Jamaica Plainare doing ok. And let's hope in 2012 it stays that way!
