Posted by Avenue 3 Real Estate on Fri, Nov 20, 2015

 

The Thanksgiving Holiday is upon us and this is the time of year that we are reminded of the wonderful efforts of the Arlington Food Pantry here in Arlington Mass. The Arlington Food Panty has been organized, efficient and a well-run nonprofit for years and very appreciated by many. In the past years the donations to the Food Pantry have taken care of the needs of over 500 people living in Arlington MA. It is truly amazing that this volunteer effort and all the Food Pantries throughout the Greater Boston Area can serve the needs of so many.

Selling a Home in the Greater Boston Area with the Best Holiday Decor!

Posted by Avenue 3 Real Estate on Wed, Nov 4, 2015

With the approaching arrival of the holiday season, a new 'problem' presents itself to homeowners in the Greater Boston Area who are selling a home. It is never too early to think about seasonal decorations for your home while on the market. 

Here are a couple of "do's" and a few "do nots" to help you make the most of your home sale and holiday decor!

Do decorate.  If you would normally decorate, go right ahead. It is the holiday season so your home should be a part of the season.  If you do not add any decorations or decor changes to reflect the season, your home may feel less lively or less inviting to visiting buyers.

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.
