Maybe not stingrays but some whales have been harpooned

Brother Gideon reports that 19 houses priced at $5 million and above have sold or gone to contract in the past three months. Of course, that still leaves 157 houses in that price range in our inventory and I’ll be curious to match the original prices to their eventually selling price but still, there is movement. Looks like we have a 2 1/2 year inventory of these expensive houses and that’s long enough, so no more listings!

What I like to see are contract dates – how many went to contract in the past ninety days? I’ll go look.

(I’m back) Gideon used the same methodology I prefer: all 19 went to contract in the past 90 days. That’s an impressive amount of action.

    CF — If you can tell me at 18 Coventry Lane, if you can. Saw it in the NY Times but can’t find it on line . . . inside sale? Ugly house, terrible location – what did it go for?
