And this is the old market

544 North Street has dropped its price to $2.999 million — it started off in 2015 at $3.995.

A 1924 pseudo-Tudorish concoction, located down what realtors call “a private lane” and what I’d describe as a shared driveway, it sold for $3.1 million in 2005 and then, improbably, for $3.725 to these owners just a year later in 2006. Some improvements were performed in 2012 and it is in fact a very nice house.

But there are lot of houses very much like this on the market right now, and very few takers.
