Here’s a chance to see whether raising the price actually works

Beware of goose

160 Bedford Road, asking $2.990 million, reports an accepted offer after 1,813 days on the market. It originally sold for $3.3 million in 2007 (after a very long stretch of time) and was put back up for sale a few weeks later for $5.295. Last year, when it was priced at just $2.2 million it reported a contract but that must have fallen through because the owner returned it to the market shortly thereafter, this time at $2.990. So did bumping the price a third really work? Really? We’ll have to see.

I’ve always liked this house, by the way, and said so many times during its years on the market. But it has declined over time and now it is, in my view, an eight-acre land sale, nothing more. Sad, because it was once a very nice home. It remains, so far, the only place I’ve shown where my client and I were greeted, indoors, by a diaper-wearing goose.

So there’s that distinction.

  1. You are slow out of the funny gate today.

    You should have said: the only place I’ve shown where my client and I got a gander, indoors, of a diaper-wearing goose.

    Ba-dum-dum.
