You're ready to hit some Open Houses this Spring but time is limited on the weekends due to chores, spring activities and of course, some much needed chilling time to catch-up on after a long work week! Therefore, we're suggesting these 4 steps that will prepare you to make the experience efficient, easy and professional!

Step 1: Begin right here at the MA Real Estate Open House Search. You can browse through all the towns in Massachusetts, find the listings for all the open houses in MA, check open house time and view property specifics in every property category. Once you have identified the properties you're visiting you can move on to step 2.

Step 2: Walkability Index. You will find this a very useful tool, especially if you are not familiar with the town and neighborhood of the homes, condos or multi-family properties you have identified in your price range. Just insert the address of a property and you will get the distance to the nearest public transportation, restaurants, shopping and even the commute to a work location! You'll find all that info right here: WalkScore.

Buying a home in MA is not the easiest thing to do.  First you have to find a home to suit your needs and then you need to navigate the buying process.  Unlike other states, buying a home in Massachusetts is a multi stage process.  First, you put forth your Offer to Purchase, then comes the Home Inspection, then, the Purchase and Sale Agreement , Mortgage and Closing.

Along the way you will be asked to sign many forms and contracts.  Some of these are issued by the State of Massachusetts, like the Mandatory Licensee Consumer Relationship Disclosure, the Property Transfer Lead Paint Notification and the Home Inspector Facts for Consumers.  Others are issued by the Greater Boston Real Estate Board or the real estate company with which you are working. These may include Buyer Representation Agreements and the Offer to Purchase itself.
