Who said I was infallible?

26 Circle Drive

26 Circle Drive

When this house came on the market last fall I had not-kind things to say about it. I thought that given its location close to I-95 and the NHRR and the number of spec houses in its immediate vicinity that buyers would drive its price down, not withstanding its nice backyard. Well it went to contract soon thereafter, no doubt to spite me, and yesterday it sold for $2 million even, just about its asking price of $2.2. So there you go: listen to me at your peril.

    I’m sure it’s a match made in heaven! There’s something out there for everyone.

    I just don’t understand that location. $2.2m could buy you a similar house in a much nicer location. CF, do you think the builder is doing any funny business with credits at closing perhaps to keep up appearances for other spec homes he has in the area? Circle/Morningside has a lot of new construction, is any of it from the same builder?

      Stanwich, I think he does have other projects but I know the other house that this buyer eschewed in favor of this one and that, too, by another builder, is going for $2 million, so I’d say this was a straight sale. No accounting for taste.

    Neither money nor lack of money buys taste or ability to judge value
