Buying and Selling a home in the Greater Boston Area

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.

Stopping by Greater Boston Area Open Houses this weekend.

Posted by Avenue 3 Real Estate on Fri, Oct 17, 2014

It's the weekend and you know what that means, Open Houses abound in the Greater Boston area. The front doors of Single-family homes, condos, and multi-families are wide-open welcoming strangers in to check out every inch of their interior and exterior space from top to bottom. Pretty amazing when you think about it. We often wonder how the idea got hatched and continues to thrive. It does say something about our trust in one another and the hobby of “just looking”.

So what about the Open house tradition?

Usually you'll find the most properties open to visitors will be on Saturday and Sunday afternoons anywhere from 1PM to 4PM. Properties available to be seen are advertised in newspapers, posted online, found on real-estate web sites and even by just the placing of an Open House sign (with or without balloons) in front of the home.
