Nobody doesn’t dislike Dickie Fuld

Our North Street resident is apparently having a hard time finding anyone who wants to hire him as a consultant. I know of no former Lehman folks who think much of him.

So, what’s Greenwich’s Skip Skowron up to these days?

A reader asked, so I Googled our latest hedge funder gone bad and came up with this story from June 22. The guy’s looking for a plea deal, if you believe the story. Makes sense to me. Look for a nice house on Doubling Road to hit the market?

Twenty-one price reductions reported this morning

And they are all for houses asking less than $2 million, nothing above. Nice to have money and patience, I guess. We’re up to something like a four-year inventory on high-priced houses and obviously, those sellers don’t intend on going anywhere. Well why should they? Greenwich is a nice town.

Real estate news!

It’s still happening. Here are three sales, just reported.

8 Dingletown, sold for $2.4 million. Owners paid $2.2875 for it back in 2002 and put an awful lot of money into it – a great house, in my opinion, but they practically stole some new construction on Boulder Brook, so I’d guess they made out just fine.

32 Nimitz Place, Havermeyer. Again, paid $1.472 in 2006, renovated and improved, sold for $1.495.

520 Indian Field, Mead Point. Older house but beautiful yard, asked $5,925,000 in February 2010, sold for $4.525.
