Buying and Selling a home in the Greater Boston Area

When Buying a Home in MA , Maximize the Open House Experience!

Posted by Avenue 3 Real Estate on Mon, Apr 4, 2016

The spring real estate market in the Greater Boston Area has been slow to start this year. But, since the mortgage rates have stayed low and the Greater Boston Area population and industry continues to expand at a record rate, the spring market looks to be very competitive for buyers once it gets underway.  This means that properties will be on the market for very short periods of time before they are sold, and, as in last year’s competitive market, the Open Houses will be the prime available viewing time.  So, as a buyer, you must be well prepared to take full advantage of the opportunity.

The Fall market in real estate is often portrayed as a pale cousin to the famous Spring market which gets so much press. The oncoming holiday season and winter weather seem to threaten a precipitous end to the buying season and the buyers are alleged to disappear with the cold.

Curb appeal tips for selling a home in MA this winter!

Posted by Avenue 3 Real Estate on Tue, Jan 27, 2015

 




During late Spring and Summer months great curb appeal is natural to many homes with the greenery, flower beds and the colorful leaves of fall on the front yard trees. But when autumn turns to winter and the sun sets earlier in the day, it becomes increasingly difficult to create an inviting exterior look that entices a perspective Buyer.

The good news is you can still create striking curb appeal when selling a home in the winter months without expensive and/or complicated exterior changes.  It just requires a little creativity and here are a few suggestions that we think will do just that!

Save the Date! Shopping Local and Small in the Greater Boston Area

Posted by Avenue 3 Real Estate on Fri, Nov 14, 2014

 

 

 

When looking to live in or invest in any city or town in the Greater Boston Area, everyone looks for the liveliness and convenience of one or more “centers” of commercial activity. We want local shops and restaurants in our city or town to help create a vibrant atmosphere and make our community lives more interesting and convenient.  A quick stop at the local bank, a (lifesaving) child’s birthday gift (on the way to the party), a bottle of wine (on the way to a different party), a light lunch or a lovely dinner all within a few minutes drive or a short walk from your home, makes your community more valuable to you and more enjoyable as well.
What these terrific local businesses need is our attention.  In order to compete with the bigger stores and their ability to advertise,  local businesses need your purchase power to help them succeed.  A great way to support your local outlets is by visiting them on Small Business Saturday this November 29th. Begun in 2010 by American Express, Small Business Saturday works to promote local shopping throughout Massachusetts.

Buying or Selling a home in Massachusetts is not the easiest thing to do.  As a buyer, you need to find the perfect home and as a seller you need to find the perfect price and a buyer to go with it.  In either case, you will both, buyer and seller, be involved in the process of a home sale in Massachusetts.  The various stages of the process involve meeting and engaging an agent, negotiating an offer to purchase, working through the home inspection and mortgage and finally reaching the closing.  Like most important steps in life in the state of Massachusetts, it will involve paperwork - lots of paperwork.
