One thought on “Ames-Webster, a Back Bay Mansion is available for purchase

  1. Jim says:

    The entire description above is fine. But “available for purchase…”?
    –How about using the words “for sale” ?

    “…bids are due December 15th…”
    –Well, I thought it was for sale. Now is it a sale or an auction?

    “Price ranges from $18M-$25M”
    –What price do you mean? With or without the Bentley, Maybach and Aston-Martin? Or (if it’s an auction) does this mean that a $26M bid will be disallowed?

    Hi Jim,

    First, I’d like to thank you for visiting our blog.

    “Available for purchase” sounds better than “for sale” in my opinion; properties like this are not being offered for purchase (or for sale) every day, not even every year.

    This is not an auction. If you or anybody else is interested in purchasing this property, you should submit a sealed bid by December 15th 2009. The owner of the property will review all offers and will most likely negotiate with the best offer. Unlike an auction where you bid when the other buyers are present and the higher bidder takes it all, in this case, the owner does not have to accept any offers. This is the way buildings and estates are being sold in Boston. For example, in the recent sale of 45-47 Commonwealth Ave, the seller’s starting bid was $7.7M, he received 13 offers and sold the property for $9.25M.

    The price range is a recommendation only. I’m sure that a bid for $26M will be more than welcome.

    Best,
    Elad Bushari
