Ok, Let's talk about value. Usually, not a word that can be thrown around lightly in the tight & desirable loft market in Boston. But I'm about to show you something, and if you are quick enough, you can take advantage:
First of all, I can't tell you how many people in the marketplace hover around Court Square Press in the Seaport District in Boston, looking for a loft to call home. This is one of the most popular loft buildings in the Boston area for a reason: 24 hour concierge, deeded garage parking, 20,000 Square Foot outdoor rooftop terrace with a lap pool & grills!, media room, and updated fitness center - plus it's literally just steps from the Redline.
There's also the units: true brick and beam style lofts, handsome, elegant, but also that perfect touch of raw factory style that adds that extra flair to make these homes a cut above (check out the homepage of www.BostonLofts.com. There's a reason I feature that Court Square Press unit as "THE" loft in Boston!).
Convenience, style and good living….Must be pricey, right? Well, Court Square's lofts have been selling at about $500 per square foot lately - even with the parking. So, the value is obvious for this building.
But wait - it gets better! How does $426 a Square Foot AND $67,000 UNDER assessed value sound for a Two-Level Penthouse?!
Yes- read quickly, here's the details:
· Price: $799,000
· Size: 1872 Square Feet
· Rooms: 2 Bedrooms / 2 Full Baths & 1 Half Bath
· Parking: 1 deeded GARAGE spot
Here’s a little more:
Boasts soaring 10 - 25 foot ceilings, Master Bedroom with en-suite Full Bath & huge walk-in closet. Dramatic lofted Livingroom / Diningroom / Kitchen with original wood beams & exposed brick, perfect for entertaining or just relaxing in a spacious & ultra-cool loft. Chef’s Kitchen includes stainless steel appliances (including wall oven) with amazing storage, midnight black granite countertops and upscale wood cabinets.
Yes, you are interested. Private showings: call Paul Santucci 617-694-0004 or email me at
Transformation of South Boston's waterfront area continues.
Skanska USA Commercial Development and Twinoing Properties recently unveiled plans for a 300-unit apartment tower in the Seaport District. The 14-story tower, to be known as Watermark Seaport, will feature glass windows to showcase unobstructed views of the harbor.
The ground floor will offer 25,000 square feet of retail space.
Watermark Seaport is part of the Seaport Square project, a large-scale initiative to fill in parking lots in the Innovation District with homes, office buildings, a hotel, and public parks.
Full story at Boston.com.
As I am sure many of you have read, Boston is undergoing several transformations throughout several of its neighborhoods. Some are undergoing new additions, while others are getting renovated.
Here is an inside look with David Manfredi, principal of Elkus Manfredi Architects, whose firm happens to be one of which that is highly involved with several current/upcoming projects.
We’re very fortunate, planners and architects especially, to be in Boston. There is activity here, and there are large parts of the country where there’s not nearly as much activity. What’s exciting is that we have this incredible waterfront that sits right next to our downtown, and there is a lot of development there now. It’s not like we’re building at the edges; we’re building so close to the heart of everything." ...Read more HERE (photo credit boston.com)
On October 6th, 25 brand new lofts will be auctioned off. Minimum bids will start at $115,000! The average minimum bid is more than 50% off the last asking price - making these an unbelievable value.
These lofts boastopen floor plans, 10' - 16' ceilings, gorgeous kitchens w/ stainless steel appliances & granite countertops, private terraces & balconies available, exposed beams, spa-like baths, oversized factory-sized windows, with a mixture of hardwood and polished concrete floors.
DNA Lofts is located at the desirable northern tip of Dorchester, steps to the Redline T, where an influx of new restaurants and retail has created a "buzz" within the residential community.
At 9 West Broadway in the Boston Seaport, bordering South Boston and the Financial District, is a handsome luxury penthouse loft waiting to be plucked off the market. Unit 605 is nothing short than impressive. Attached with a price tag of a cool $1.899 million, it’s definitely a Boston luxury condo worth checking out.
Why do they call these the dog days of summer I wonder? Could it have anything to do with consuming hot dogs perhaps?
I read somewhere or maybe heard it on a radio talk show Howie Carr or NPR or somewhere that in 2009, consumers spent more than $1.6 billion that's BILLION with a B on hot dogs and sausages in U.S. supermarkets. Gosh if you think about it that's alot of dogs! Or could it be they call it dog days of summer simply because someone once noticed a correlation between a hot day and their lazy dog just laying around in the shade doing nothing. Just resting. Could it be that simple I wonder? Interesting.
Well it seems we sure are experiencing some pretty serious dog days so far this month! 100-105 degrees oh my! And I'll tell you it affects me. Not just the way the heat makes me feel slow but it affects work. While I can lay in the shade and rest any time I want in the type of work I do...that would be real estate sales.... unfortunately I can't do it for long. As a REALTOR I'm pretty much self employed and often host open houses on Sunday's to meet prospective buyers (a small part of the marketing I do to reach out to prospective clients). In the Real Estate world Sundays it seems is the traditional day to host open houses. It sounds logical because most work from Monday to Friday however is it really practical? Does it make sense to host open houses on a weekend in the summer time? The dog days of summer time.
Hosting open houses hasn't been so much fun these past few weeks. I assume if you're a sales agent or know one (and most of us know someone who is one) you know what I mean. I really don't mind giving up a hot day at the beach or laying by my brother's pool to stand instead in a beautiful air conditioned home for a few hours. Especially these days it's more important to me that I build my business and a future retirement. God knows I've done enough bathing, lounging and BBQing to last a life time. As I said it's not so bad hosting an open house during these hot dog days. So I do it for myself and for others I work with at my company. I stand there in the comfort of an air conditioned unit with iced coffee in one hand and listing sheet in the other. Then someone enters!!! And I've got to say how exciting it is when that sweaty, drained and tired home seeker happens to finally come through my door! Can you imagine how excited I am?.!?# I smile at them and offer a hand shake. Some catch their breath while kindly shewing me away with a grin not interested in talking with me and others engage in a little kabitzing then off they go. These days it seems there are fewer and fewer visitors. Maybe I should consider offering lemonade or something thirst quenching...hmmm...
Seems many a Sunday has passed with only a few to none pay me a visit at my air conditioned listing. Other than offering an iced beverage we're doing all the right things. Advertising. Marketing. Could they all be enjoying themselves at the beach on these dog days of summer? Or perhaps basking in the shade under a tree drinking their ice tea? Yeah I'll bet they are hanging out being handed a beer and a grilled dog somewhere fun.
Well we all work hard and deserve to enjoy dog days off especially on the weekend when all of our freinds are doing the same thing. Enjoying themselves that is.. And who really wants to walk around 105 degree Boston touring open houses sweating bullets all over the place when they could be sprawled out with their face planted in a blanket on Carson Beach in Southie or sailing the Boston Harbor with friends or throwing a fishing line out to hook one of the many thousands of yummy striped bass swimming our waters right now!!
But isn't touring open houses important to some of you who recognize property values and interest rates are at the lowest they have ever been in a LONG time? Touring open houses gives buyers AND sellers a better perspective of what a certain square footage can buy them in a particular neighborhood of interest. It's an opportunity to investigate, talk to the agent and learn details they wouldn't if they just read about the unit.
So how about attending an open house on a weekday? Perhaps after work when the sun is going down and it's more convenient for you? Attending an open house on a week night for example promises not to interrupt your dog day summer afternoons especially the weekends! And if you happen to spot a home that isn't open on a week night BUT wish to see it you can always call a qualified experienced AND helpful person like myself to set up a showing for you! Happy Dog Days of Summer!

Should you buy or rent?
The soft real estate market and soon-to-expire tax credit may tempt you to commit to a home purchase. But does it make practical and financial sense? Here’s what to weigh.

In December, a new restaurant opened up off of A street in Southie. Barlow's is a new addition to this up and coming area of Boston known for it's warehouses and lofts. Brick walls, high ceilings, and local art provide a nice ambiance, with the bar located in the center of the restaurant. It is also participating in Boston Restaurant week right now, and you can check out the menus here.
The following is an excerpt of the Boston Globe article, which further delves into the restaurant and its cuisine:
"Destination restaurants are the stuff of special occasions. You want to celebrate, dress up, eat wonderful things, and you’ll travel to another town, state, or even country to do it. Arrows, French Laundry, El Bulli . . . the longer it takes to get there, the more exciting it is to arrive.
But as nice as it is to have these places, even more important are the restaurants that come to you — places where you can walk in and be instantly comfortable, without going out of your way or spending hours on speed-dial exactly 30 days before you actually want to eat. They’re the places you take for granted, until you find yourself living or working in a neighborhood where there aren’t many of them."(Source: www.boston.com)
