Real estate is a local industry and, as a rule, varies widely from market to market. But when Covid detonated in March, even that constant was upturned: For two weeks or more, deals everywhere fell apart, closings were delayed, buyers didn’t shop and sellers wouldn’t let them in anyway. To find out what is happening on the ground now, we interviewed over 50 agents and buyers in these markets.  READ MORE >



On the Market: A Grand Oceanside Manor in Gloucester

No need to fret over a library card or overdue fees when you reside in this home, which is Rockport’s former public library. 

If going to a great library feels like coming home, this dwelling should be the perfect fit for you. Beyond the thousands of stories the building used to house, the edifice itself has a history of its own: Famed steel magnate and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie commissioned the construction in 1904 to serve as Rockport’s Public Library. While the library has since moved across town, Carnegie’s contribution still stands, now as a stately private residence.

Once a Carnegie Library, 
Now a Historic Home.


When Gail and David Vastola bought their home in Rockport, Mass., they knew they were buying a piece of history. Commissioned by Andrew Carnegie in 1904, the building was the town library until 1993. The structure sat empty until the Vastolas purchased it in 2007.

‘It was in terrible shape,’ says Dr. Vastola, a 75-year-old physician. ‘It was full of mold and mildew. We had to bring a hazmat team in to clean it out.’ The couple paid $540,000 for the property in an auction and invested approximately $1.5 million in the reconstruction and restoration.   Read More >
