I wish I was ready to downsize…. Then, I could buy that fabulous condo that just came on the market at 135 Pleasant Street in Arlington MA! With a NYC/Beacon Hill elegance, a dining room sized for a gala, living room with fireplace, and a welcoming foyer, this would be a wonderful place for a party. And the two spacious bedrooms, walk-in pantry, numerous huge closets, and covered back porch make it practical for everyday living. You don’t even have to climb the stairs – just hop into the old fashioned elevator!
This condo is on the second floor on the sunny corner of the building. It comes with two parking spaces and laundry and storage in the basement. The building – known as “The” Irvington” – and the condo have been beautifully maintained. There’s nothing to do but move in and relax.
There’ll be plenty of time for a stroll down the Pleasant Street to the restaurants, coffee shops, Robbins Library, or Derby Farm, one of my favorite Arlington boutiques. Come take a look – you’ve got to see it to believe it!
Contact Avenue 3 Realtor Nellie Aikenhead to schedule a showing or to start your search for another Arlington condo!
Join us tonight, Monday Sept. 19th for our weekly forum/discussion/round table talk.
We were hoping to talk a little about the decisions that need to be made when you start thinking of buying a home or selling a home. Whether you're first-time buyer or experienced seller your first decision is choosing the right company for your needs!
Big or small, corporate or privately owned? Here's some food for thought on that topic:
Look forward to seeing you this evening. Always at Bertucci's at Alewife Cambridge, always from 5:30-7Pm, always food and always open to any real estate questions or topics that are of interest to you!
See you tonight!
Judy Conley and Rob Russell
Is the fall market a good time to buy? Should you buy in the spring market when traditionally there is more inventory to choose from? Should you buy in the summer market when fewer buyers are braving the heat to visit open houses? Should you wait for the winter when those fabled few, brave and desperate sellers are said to be on the market?
What about the fall? Well, the fall market has its advantages as well.
1. Leftovers. Some of the Fall inventory will be homes that have not sold thus far in the year. These may be properties that have been priced too high to sell and are just now coming into the range of pricing reality - a good buy for the ready buyer.
2. Serious Sellers. The fall market is no time to fool around, typically any seller new to the market is serious about selling and not just fishing for that one buyer who will pay just what the seller believes their home is worth.
3. Short Season. Another motivator for sellers to price any new listing on the market correctly is the shorter selling season of the fall. Unlike the spring market which seems endless, the fall season has the trap door of the "Holidays" giving the season a definitive end - sellers beware, buyers benefit!
So, this Fall, pick some apples, take a foliage ride, and take a look at homes for sale in Arlington MA, condos in Somerville MA and multi-families in Cambridge MA and maybe even think about buying one!
