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.

2 Multiple Offer Tips for today's Greater Boston Real Estate market!

Posted by Avenue 3 Real Estate on Thu, May 7, 2015

If you are trying to buy a property in the Greater Boston Area, you know full well that demand is exceeding supply. With the economy strengthening, companies moving into the area, academia expanding and mortgage rates still very low buyers are out in great numbers. Winter properties for sale were limited by our historic snowfall this winter which kept the market shut down. Everything is now packed into our current spring market, resulting in multiple offer situations on many homes. Multiple offers are not a new phenomenon in this area, but there seem to be a couple of new twists to the plot.

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.
