The Needle in the Haystack, Newton Luxury Home. With all the inventory of luxury properties available right now in Newton it takes some focus to pull out the wheat from the chaff. In many areas there is not enough inventory on the market right now, but this is not the case with Newton luxury homes. There is 9 months of listings with the average market being 6 months. This makes the Newton Luxury real estate market a Buyers market. Sounds good for the buyers, right? Well it is, but this comes with the caveat that you can get a great deal, not just a good one.Luxury homes are mostly nice. They have nice kitchens, nice landscaping, many nice amenities so what is the difference, how do you choose? New construction over an older home that has been rehabbed and updated is one difference.

Newton Luxury Home 1, Ice Dams 0  Say what you want about new construction, but give me a building that has stood the test of time and time again.  114 Shornecliffe was a luxury home when it was built on, then Nonantum Hill, now Farlow Hill in 1911.  This house has graciously endured countless storms of horrific nature.  Now, today we have passed the all time record for snow in MA.  Many, many homes are suffering huge ice dams that are damaging the exterior of the house and forcing water down and inside the home.  This is not the case with a house built like this Classical Revival home.  This house proudly controls it's destiny due to the loving upgrades.  This house has been fully re-insulated with the best products available in today's market.  Unlike new construction, this house is s...

Boston Area Move In Homes Luxury Housing Report Feb 27-15  As a Million Dollar Guild member of the Institute for International Luxury Home Marketing (ILHM) I have access to deep insight into the analytics of the Luxury Housing Reports internationally and in our Boston area.  Newton will be different than Dedam will be different than Marblehead, but with any housing report we are looking at the trends and not the specifics. Spring is upon us, the smart buyers are out right now to capture the best deals.  What the risk here is that more houses will come on the market which it true and possible, but with more properties comes more buyers and right now in the luxury market in several price ranges activity through Jan and February of 2015 has been slow.  The time to strike a deal is now.
