Boston Real Estate luxury market report statistics are provided by the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing.  The luxury home market acts and reacts very differently than the regular housing market.  There is more inventory, the houses stay on the market longer than lesser priced home because the pool of people who can buy these homes is smaller.  Dedham real estate is showing only 15 listings in this category.  It is true that your money goes further in Dedham than it will in a town like Newton.

Newton real estate has far more houses that would be considered luxury in the greater Boston real estate market. There are 121 houses actively for sale in Newton right now that would fall into this category.  47 Dudley Road, Newton MA 02458 is a listing that fits perfectly into this statistic.  On the market for

375 Westfield Street, Dedham,  MA 02026 is a house with very compelling design. It is different than most colonials with contemporary flair. It is a house that is built for entertaining.  It is also built in a way that each bedroom is apart and away from the others.  A 1400 square foot master suite sits atop everything.  The graphic on the left is showing that the inventory has been rounding down in the last week. This is to be expected through the rest of the year as people will not list properties as often in the winter, holiday months.

The Milkmans son a path to your home Larry Lawfer

The Milkmans son a path to your home Larry Lawfer

The Milkmans son a path to your home Larry Lawfer. Lawfer grew up in Doylestown, Pa back in the days when people didn’t have need to lock their doors. A time when your neighbors left their keys in their cars. The term joy ride was created at that time, we were sure. The cars, built like tanks then (American Steel, Pittsburgh probably) and never a fatality that I remember. I digress. I had the privilege to join my father in his job, he was a home delivery milkman.  2 AM is when we woke and it is dark then. We went to the farm to pick up the truck bundled against the cold and me asking way to many questions along the way. Once the truck was loaded we would meet other early morning or late shift working dads at Ed’s Diner. I would get my hair mussed. here big and strong hands as they smiled at my Dad without acknowledging me, “Got your helper with your today.” This always sounded somewhat conspiratorial to me. It is a memory.

On the route my job was to go into the kitchen, open the refrigerator, figure out if they needed milk, butter or cottage cheese then  race back to the truck, tell my Dad who’d make note, and then I would race back into the home making sure I was quiet and respectful, didn’t wake anyone and pet the pet if there was a pet. I always took that time.  These were different times then and the thought of leaving our houses open all night so that someone could serve your needs is well gone, but back then it was magical to me. And it is why I am a Realtor® now.

I went into Colonials, Farm Houses, Tudor’s and Contemporaries.  I saw neat houses, messy houses and made friends with the pets who lived there. I loved knowing my neighbor’s and the lives they lead inside their homes. I loved speaking to a Mom or Dad who was up at those wee hours and knowing I was helping lighten their load and doing my part.  Not much has changed about that over the years. As a Realtor® I do much of the same work. I must know the homes and the people who live within is said and I know it involve so much more.

When I meet with you, I get to know your love of home and place and all the varied reasons you must sell. I understand when and what you must buy from a technical and logistical way,  before I know your needs and wants when you must buy. It’s all about you.  Matching your needs and wants to the place is the story to be told and shared. There is an intimacy to this process that demands respect and discretion. We have a job to do and we need to get in and out in the most efficient manner to move on to the next home. I learned this as a home delivery milkman’s son from Doylestown, PA. My Dad is gone now more than a year, and I still think of those days. It is all about your needs and your wants. I guess all my life I have been headed in this direction but I feel blessed to be able to share The Milkman’s son path to your home. Larry Lawfer
