Buying and Selling a home in the Greater Boston Area

3 Reasons to Buy an Arlington MA Home this Fall.

Posted by Karen Lilley on Sun, Sep 11, 2011

Is the fall market a good time to buy?  Should you buy in the spring market when traditionally there is more inventory to choose from?  Should you buy in the summer market when fewer buyers are braving the heat to visit open houses?  Should you wait for the winter when those fabled few, brave and desperate sellers are said to be on the market?
 
 What about the fall?   Well, the fall market has its advantages as well.  
 
 1. Leftovers.  Some of the Fall inventory will be homes that have not sold thus far in the year.  These may be properties that have been priced too high to sell and are just now coming into the range of pricing reality - a good buy for the ready buyer.
 
2. Serious Sellers.  The fall market is no time to fool around, typically any seller new to the market is serious about selling and not just fishing for that one buyer who will pay just what the seller believes their home is worth.
 
3. Short Season.  Another motivator for sellers to price any new listing on the market correctly is the shorter selling season of the fall.  Unlike the spring market which seems endless, the fall season has the trap door of the "Holidays" giving the season a definitive end - sellers beware, buyers benefit!
 
So, this Fall, pick some apples, take a foliage ride, and take a look at homes for sale in Arlington MA, condos in Somerville MA and multi-families in Cambridge MA and maybe even think about buying one!

Attention Sellers – Do Not Prepare Your Home for Sale this Spring!

Posted by Avenue 3 Real Estate on Tue, Apr 5, 2011

Do not, good sellers, prepare your home for sale. Do not rake up the broken branches from the lawn or put fresh flowers at the door - a welcoming look is clearly overrated. Do not repair the cracks in the walk way, they lend a “homey” charm and sense of adventure to the climb up the steps. Leave the overfilled closets alone. Forget about touching up the chipped paint, going with the “antiqued” look is just fine.
