If you’re looking for a new place to live, are you ‘normal’ in what you’re looking FOR?  I guess generalities make posters easier, but I think most people have their own list of ‘got to haves’. However, this list of the norm for buyers is different than it’s been in the past, so have a look see.                     


If you’re past the ‘what the heck is a HUD house?’ question and might like to buy one – this is a good read. Short Sales, REO properties and New Construction all have their unique buying formats that are different than the norm. Add HUD homes to the list.


$11 Million affordable housing project in Eliot neighborhood. 50 units will be completed in 2013 and the ground breaking party will be on Saturday July 21st from noon to three. Kids can go on the heavy construction equipment. (Hey, I want to go, too!)


What would be more natural than a Boston artist to create public art for the Sellwood Bridge? I’m just not sure where the $500,000 project cost goes. I’m thinking much of it will be in landscaping, but I’ll try and remember to check this out come 2016. J
