Last week, we revisited a home in the NE neighborhood of Eckington that also had an accumulation of days on market. A similar consideration applies here, in that buyers who are missing out in competitive bids on newly listed properties, might be wise to go back and look at some of the inventory that is hanging around. In this case, the property eventually sold for $35,000. less than the original price back in January (remember winter?)
