Is the housing market back on track? More deals closed this September than in any September since 2005, according to real estate tracking firm The Warren Group. Foreclosures are down all over, and prices are up almost everywhere, too. Eric Berman of the Massachusetts Association of Realtors ex- plains why: “Inventory is low, interest rates are low, and the economy’s better, so we have qualified buyers. We’re moving in the right direction.” Looking at the percent increase in median sale prices between the first nine months of 2012 and 2013, you can see which neighborhoods are really heating up.
We have been slowly moving to the dotloop.com platform for all of our transactions because it works. Take a look at this fun short video and you will understand all there is to know.
The wind was a challenge and rides were in doubt when Chris Mooney, Balloon Pilot arrived on Cambridge Common. About an hour later he decided to give it a try and with some concern we launched the balloon. We had an hour before sunset and managed to raise over $300 for CHAF – Cambridge Housing Assistance Fund.
Come join the festivities in Harvard Square on Sunday May 5th. This will be RE/MAX Destiny’s sixth year as sponsors of the event. This year we are handing out red, white and blue beads and stuffed animals to those who stop by our booth next to Curious George at the corner of JFK ad Brattle Streets. from there we will be heading to the Common to set up for hot air balloon rides at 4:30. The set up is fun to watch. Your welcome to participate if you would like to join us.
The rides will be from 5:00 to 7:00, weather permitting, on the Cambridge Common across from the Sheraton Hotel on Garden Street. The winds tend to be the biggest concern at this time of the year. We will be requesting donations for rides with proceeds going to Our Place Center for Homeless Children and CHAF, The Cambridge Housing Assistance Fund.
The rides are first come first served with a line forming during set up at 4:30. So get there early to get an opportunity to ride the seven story RE/MAX balloon. Hope to see you there.
