Finally. The spring selling season has arrived this past week in Belmont with nine houses being bought with three interesting facts:

  • the properties sold quickly, most within just about two months after going on the market,
  • the final sale price for all but one property beat the initial listing price, and
  • condominiums led the rush of sales. 

Also interesting to see a fairly modest, Depression-era Colonial (OK, it does have a two-car garage) on Locust Street (near the Burbank on a rare cul-de-sac  in Belmont) selling for a million dollars plus. Is Belmont, Massachusetts beginning to emulate Belmont, California where the median price of homes is currently north of a million dollars? This is what a median-valued house in Belmont Left Coast will get you. (Note the square footage; pretty cramped for shelling out seven figures.)
