We have cont(r)act! The late Jean Seward’s place, on the market since July 2007 has gone to contract today. Last asking price was $2.095 and someone was obviously in no hurry to move this because the price only recently budged from its original price of $2.195. Ms. Seward was a bird lover/protector/rescuer and by all accounts a remarkable person. She’ll forgive me, I hope, if I suggest that this was most likely a land sale than a residential one. But I’ll be curious to see what the final sale price turns out to be because it should provide a good insight into what a building lot will fetch in this market.
By the way, this marks the second contract reported this month, so it’s not quite the first robin – the other was that Davis Avenue property at (asking) $375,000. No mansions reported sold, as of yet.
