It says something about a house and neighborhood when a home hasn't traded for over 50 years. I'm a big fan of buying homes that have been owned for ages.

It took a million dollar price adjustment and a year and a half of hard work, but 128 Butternut Hollow finally sold today. The house sold for $2.6m, which is well bellow the assessment and $1.325m under the original asking price.
We had 5 houses in Greenwich trade today. I'm not sure if this means much, other than people wanting to close before Christmas week. We have seen a decent amount of closing activity, but not much "to contract" activity.
There are some great deals out there. 174 Putnam Park is one of them. This co-op in Putnam Park was originally listed for $530k two years ago and today finally sold for $345k. With 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths, this was a great opportunity to get into Greenwich.
