They are coming in @ 92% to their original list price. They are coming in @ 95% of their adjusted list price.As far as price reductions, 36  of the 125 have had their prices changed. The prices have been adjusted 33 times.  The average price reduction was $18,936. There are currently 20 single family homes under agreement in Milton. The inventory is going down.

I hear this a lot from potential buyers. They want to know what the prices are on condos in the market that they are looking.In Milton, there are very few condos for sale in comparison to the overall single family market in Milton. To give you an example, there are currently 128 single family homes on the market in Milton. There are only 28 condos. There are only a couple of places where there are condos in condominium developments. The 3 major condo complexes that come to mind are:The Residences at Milton LandingQuisset BrookThe Burr EstatesBrushwoodThe Residences at Milton Landing was new complex built a couple of years ago at 88 Wharf Street. The building is sited majestically on the Neponset River.  There are always resale units available in the complex.  To see a current list of un...

I get a lot of questions about The Residences at Milton Landing.  The Residences at Milton Landing was a condominium project that was developed in Milton a couple of years ago.The question I get most often is where are these condos located. The condos are located @ 88 Wharf Street which is off of Adams Street in the are of Milton Village.  You may not know that the area is called Milton Village, however that is the correct name of the area where Milton Village Hardware and the small post office near the Baker Chocolate Factory. You can see their web site @ http://www.miltonvillagehardware.com/The condos are well appointed. They range from 1400 square to over 2700 sqaure. There are also resale units available at The Residences at Milton Landing.You can see all the condos on the market at...

Down with the Old Pierce Middle School in MiltonI was driving on Central Avenue in Milton yesterday and just had to stopand look at the demolition of the old Pierce Middle School. There were scoop loaders literally taking the building apart in record speeds.While watching the building come down, I noticed that you could see the new schoolin the background and I thought how lucky we are as a town to have all new schoolsfor the children and as an amenity for future home buyers. Has it been easy? I would say no. There have been tax overrides and great debates, but in the end it will all be worth it for our town. As a Realtor, I can tell you people buy the town, not just the house. The short term pain we facedabout who is going to which school and how are we going to pay for it will all go ...
