Henry Kissinger reviews a new biography of Otto Von Bismark

Not as insightful as I might have hoped for but still, one statesman looking at another is fascinating. And I haven’t read the biography itself  yet, which seems to hold great promise.

Contracts

Can’t always get what you want: 16 Halsey sold, renovated, for $939,000 in 2005 and was put back up for sale in 2007 at $1.225. Last asking price, four long  years later, was $795, and it has a contract.

Sales

26 Cobb Island

This was a house I liked a lot, even though it’s got I-95 noise. Sold for $2.850 in ’02, tried for $4.850 in ’09, just sold for $3.850.

55 Londonderry

I’m surprised this house at 55 Londonderry sold so low. It was a very nice house, in great shape, with an excellent pool, but it started at $2.750 a year ago, which I didn’t think was crazy, and only  just sold, for $2.175.

16 Benjamin, not one of my favorite homes, sold for $3.6 million, which sort of surprised me, but it sold new in 2006 for $4.365, so I guess the seller held out.

10 Andrews sold new in 2008 for $4.850 in 2008 (after asking $6.495) and just resold for $3.945.

And rounding the week up, 24 Palmer Lane in Riverside asked $1.595 and got $1.595 in mere days.
