Millis Public Library has a 3D PrinterMy Library Had Smelly Books My library growing up in West Roxbury did not have very much. It was an old building built in the post war era. It had an expansive reading room and from what I remember a small collection of encyclopedias. It definitely had the smell of very old books.   That was about all I remember.   In the olden days,  I remember walking up Centre Street with my family to go to the library past the Friendly's Ice Cream (now a bank) and the old Capitol Market which later became NHD and subsequently a Walgreens (I think).  Oh the Capitol Market, how I loved thee. I had dreams about riding one of those grocery bins down the conveyor belt of rollers through the chute and out to the curbside pickup. That was the equivalent of today's roll...

A Millis MA home buyer should receive a brochure, Home Inspectors Facts for Consumers Sheet, at the time of the signing of the first written contract to purchase from the Seller or Seller's agent. Since MA Home Inspector licensing in 2001, a consumer must have a signed exclusive buyer's agent agreement with a Real Estate Broker or Salesperson before the Real Estate Broker or Salesperson can refer a home inspector. Without a signed exclusive buyer's agent agreement, the Real Estate Broker or Salesperson may only refer the buyer to the list of all MA Home Inspectors from the Massachusetts Board of Registration of Home Inspectors. Finding your Millis MA Home Inspector from the list of all MA home inspectors can be quite a challenge. An internet search for "Millis MA Home Inspector" may hel...

As the market continues to improve in my area, this is a good time to adjust some of my direct mail marketing to cover a broader area by using more than one message on a postcard and mailing to more residences.  This postcard will be sent to every single family home and condo in Millis MA for my team member, Sue Kuphal.  Sue listed a home in Millis recently and it was pending in 5 days.  Normally I would mail to 200 homes in the area of the subject property with a “sale pending” postcard.  Since it’s time to send a “Free Market Analysis” card to residents for the month of April, I’m using that pending sale as the theme.  Everyone likes to do business with successful people, and this postcard offers the seller the opportunity to receive a “Free Market Analysis” from an agent who can mar...

Here in northern New England, today will be a long Monday!  It's amazing how the outcome of a football game can change one's mood so drastically.  I've been thinking about this day for a week now.  Today, I have appointments with sellers and buyers and I have been pondering how the outcome of the Superbowl would affect their mood and ultimately our appointment.  There are some serious Patriots fans up here and it’s not pretty in Boston after a loss such as we saw last night! My approach will be to not mention the dreadful outcome and hope the client either a) isn't a football fan (slim chance of that being the case!), or b) is a Giants Fan, in which case I'd rather not know for fear that it would change MY mood. Well, off to the appointments....Spring Training is just around the corner!

You know the feeling you have in the pit of your stomach when you see one of your previous listings, that didn't sell, come back on market at a much reduced price?  It doesn't happen often, but I'm really perplexed when it does because my first thought is....Gee, I could have sold it for that price!  Honestly, I can understand the Seller's desire to pick a fresh agent to sell since they weren't successful before.  But to reduce by 20 or 30 thousand dollars and re-list with another random agent is hard for me to understand.  Especially since we had the conversation about the need to reduce in order to get more activity, etc.  I'm sure most of you know what I'm talking about.  So the Seller decides they can't or won't reduce and the listing goes off the market.  Then, the house pops back ...

Millis Middle School Wins Contest and receives $100,000 grant from Target Corporation. Here is a great testimony to the Small Town/Big Family motto that the town of Millis is proud to boast! Yesterday Target Corporation announced that Millis Middle School was one of 50 recipients from across the country to receive a$100,000 grant.  From Nov. 25, 2011, through Jan. 4, 2012, viewers of The Ellen DeGeneres Show were invited to submit - via email - the name of a school, along with a compelling story explaining why they felt their designated school should receive a grant from Target.  Based on the submission from Amy, a clerk in the Middle School, we were the sole school in Massachusetts chosen to receive this amazing grant. Amy is a Millis graduate, and a mother of 3 children currently in t...

Lots of good things are happening in the town of Millis, not the least of which is a new library!   Most people know in Metrowest Boston that real estate is hot in Millis because of the schools' reputation as well.  If you're considering buying or selling in Millis, you should be interested in how Millis did in the residential real estate landscape in 2011.   There is some good news for Millis Real Estate.  We sold 5 more homes in 2011 over 2010 and while the average sale price dropped a little, it was not dramatic.  In Millis and surrounding Metrowest communities, 2011 was a very stable real estate envirnment on the whole.  If you would like to take a look at more detail about the Millis 2011 real estate market, visit my metrowest Mass homes site.   If you're thinking of buying or sell...

Millis had a festive groundbreaking ceremony in December for their new library which will be on the corner of Exchange St and Main St. It's been a long time coming, like many other projects in Metrowest. But the good news is that it should be done in just 12 short months. Expected completion date is January 2013. That used to sound so far off but now that we're in 2012, we know it's just around the corner. This is a major step for the town of Millis. Just to give you a feel for the scope of this work, The new library is a $7.7 million project, with $2.7 million being provided by the state. It will have 17,800 square feet as opposed to the less than 6,000 sq ft in the old facility. Congrats to the residents of Millis for getting this done for the town! Tt's critical for the town to keep ...
