Decent house and its sale price of $1.850 million is well above the assessment of $1.430 but you have to wonder what the original broker was thinking when she listed it 1 1/2 years ago for $3.175. There’s still a lot of that kind of dreaming going on – I noticed a couple of price reductions today that still leave the houses priced a million or more above their assessments. You can argue whether houses are at 70% of their 2005 value or 85%, but only a fool thinks they’re at 150%.

24 Maher has finally gone to contract. First listed as Noah was just finishing up his ark, its asking price of $3.175 proved too high for a culture still using wampum as currency. But it dropped the first broker and her price and eventually reached $2.295 (plus some really good purple clam shells, presumably) and someone’s bit. Assessment is $1.450.
