Posted by Avenue 3 Real Estate on Tue, Mar 6, 2012

What are your plans for this Spring? Is investing in Arlington MA real estate, a condo in Boston or a Somerville MA multi-family on the top of your list? Regardless of where you choose to buy, you'll need to schedule a home inspection as an important part of the process. There are several ways educated Buyers make a decision as to who will inspect their future home. Some ask for referrals from friends who have recently purchased, others might ask their Buyer Agent for a list and some contact ASHI ( American Society of Home Inspectors)

Avenue 3s WIR looks at Waltham MA this year and last!

Posted by Avenue 3 Real Estate on Wed, Jul 20, 2011


The Pending Sales Report:  Most of our "WIR" tracked  communities had improved pending numbers last week and of them we're spotlighting the city of Waltham, MA , which experienced a healthy increase in  pending activity (+11) vs the previous week! 
We're also looking at this comparison of the Waltham market numbers in the same 6 month period in 2010 and 2011:

Jan - July 18, 2010 - total Waltham sale units: 288
Average sale prices:  SF:  $414,363,  CC: $322,973,  MF:  $437,550
Jan - July 18, 2011 - total Waltham sale units:  239
Average sale prices:  SF:  $386,355,  CC: $313,772,  MF: 462,658

( Slight number of sales down from 2010 to 2011, but the average sales prices are not significally different, good news for Waltham home owners and perspective buyers.)

Posted by Karen Lilley on Mon, Mar 14, 2011

  The days of the McMansion it seems, are on the wane.  Smaller families, larger utility bills and a nod toward simplifying our lives have brought a new trend in real estate.  According to the old cliché, bigger might be better, but the new adage states that smaller is smarter.

Posted by Lois Ardito on Wed, Aug 18, 2010
