Who's Opinion is Correct? Shirtgate?

Opinions? Who's correct?

I love these times, depending on who you talk to, the market is either wonderful or terrible. As I've said in earlier posts, the continuous give and take around whether the market is good or bad just accentuates the old adage that all real estate is local.

As many of you know, I have referred to Globe articles in the past. And as we talk at Open Houses and over drinks, the conversation inevitably comes back to the same questions.

Well, over the weekend, this being April, once again the Globe has put together the Ying and the Yang of the current market.

In one series of articles they discuss the reasons for selling and buying in todays market conditions. Of course there are sound arguments on both sides of the topic.

In another article, and this one truly puts a point on the notion that the market is local, the Globe publishes a table that shows the 10 hottest markets in the local area.

Watertown topping this list is exciting for us here in the Watertown area. We've been telling folks that Watertown is staying strong, and some of that strength is the new developments over off of Pleasant St, however properties in Watertown are still finding buyers. Even in this "tough market."

If you didn't get a chance to read the articles, here's the link at the Globe:


On another note - It never ceases to amaze me how the fans of our Olde Town Team and those of the Evil Empire can continue to find ways to increase the rivalry and ultimately bring the animosity between our two cities to a new level.

The curse of the buried shirt is a media bonanza for the new Yankee Stadium, the building isn't even complete yet and there is already a tale that will be told for generations to come.

I can't wait to see if this pans out as as true story or as a publicity stunt engineered by the Stienbrenners and the management of the team.

BTW - It seemed like it took forever, and I did go to sleep before the game ended, but it's nice to see that the Sox were triumphant last nite.

Have a great spring week,

Go Sox!
