Charlestown 3-BR Goes for $44K Under Asking; 'Fireplaced'

HUB-WIDE—Get a load of this mad etymology: "Right off the bat, I would like to start with the Hall of Fame category so I can retire the the non-word, 'fireplaced,' as in 'a fireplaced living room.' This one is well-worn at this point. Agents, please stop with the 'fireplaced.' It’s killing me. I recently saw another example of the creation of a verb out of thin air when I read that a house had been 'Pottery Barned.'" [Boston Daily]

CHARLESTOWN—This Bunker Hill Street 3-BR traded for $44K less than its asking. Maybe Charlestown is as affordable as they say. [Patch]
