Last week in Brookline, an old Victorian I had written about burned down to the ground (under rather suspicious circumstances, it seems), Brookline bakers reported that wheat prices are cutting into their profits (so Kupel’s has raised the price of a dozen bagels from $6.50 to $8), and Brookline realtors reported that the spring market has officially begun with an influx of new properties on the market and several properties quickly going under agreement. Meanwhile, we also noted a spate of price reductions around town:
143 Beaconsfield Road, Apt. 2, Brookline. Was $679K, changed to $668K. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, 1575 square feet.
26 Linden Street, Apt. 1, Brookline. Was $519K changed to $499K. — Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, 1226 square feet.
11 Waverly Street, Apt. 5, Brookline. Was $725K, changed to $699,999. — Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, 1504 square feet.
