This is not 2004

This is a nice house on Stanwich, built in 2004, sold new in 2004 for $5.550 million. The buyers listed it for resale this year at $6.345 and today dropped it to $5.895 million. That may do it, but my general impression is that we have dropped below 2004 values and, unless there were some massive improvements made but not mentioned on the listing, I wouldn’t expect this house to prove the exception.

but we’re supposed to have all those Goldman boys flooding into town with bonus checks stuffed in their wallets, and this is, as noted, a nice house, so maybe lightning will strike. Assessment is $4 million.

    Huh, you’d think these fine boys are from Cos Cob, but no, its Old Greenwich instead.

      Jerks are jerks, CC, and they live in all areas of town (although these guys were probably born in a washtub on some Cos Cob home’s porch before moving elsewhere).

    I doubt it CC. We use assault rifles over here.

    On a more serious note, what is up with drinking and shooting. I am from a gun family and we never thought to combine target practice with alcohol. I can’t even fathom it.

      I used to teach a hunter safety course, Cos, and the ignorance of basic gun safety rules was surprising. It did make my volunteer efforts seem worthwhile, though – I may have made the woods a little safer for all of us.
      No, the basic rule is save the alcohol/gun combination for domestic abuse cases – at the range, in the woods, never!
