Princeton, MA Real Estate News

As huge flakes of heavy wet snow blanketed central Massachusetts on Wednesday, my heart sank.  I feared that, coupled with the impending year-end holidays, it would be a knockout blow to the residential real estate market in my small rural towns for the rest of 2014.  Indeed, the MLS has for weeks been filled with daily notifications of listings that have expired or been cancelled by homeowners who chose to shut their doors to new buyers as temperatures plunged.  It's hard to blame them. But I was abruptly lulled out of my early winter doldrums last night, when an agent who had shown my most expensive offering, a 23-acre country estate in Princeton, MA, asked if she could bring her clients back for a second showing tomorrow morning.  Before I could even confirm that appointment with the...

365 Things to do in Worcester County - get your car pulled out of a snow bank.  Ever have one of those days?  Is it me or living in Worcester County, we get more of those days influenced by snow?  May be just this year.  Well, it finally happened to me.  I was on my way to meet an appraiser at the property I'm selling at 34 Goodnow Rd., in Princeton and the snow piles made it hard to notice the entrance.  As I drove by the entrance, I decided that the snow piled road was just too narrow for me to turn around.  So I went to the next house and tried to turn around in their driveway.  Luckily, or unluckily, noone was home.  I called AAA and ended up waiting for almost 3 hours.  I ran the car all that time to keep warm.  It took AAA merely 15 minutes to get me out of my predicament.  To see...

Last Run at Wachusett Mountain   My husband is an expert skier.  He started to ski at the age of 4 and cruises down the slopes with skill and grace that few skiers can imitate.  This short video shows him on our last run at Wachusett Mountain.  He had decided to use his telemark skis (a type of ski that melds the best of nordic and alpine ski technology), and I had decided to try to make some ski videos. After a quick hot cider on the hill, I followed him to the bottom of our last run, a short and easy ride toward the main lodge.  We had a great day.

Night Skiing at Wachusett Mountain in Massachusetts What a great night for skiing at Wachusett Mountain.  We had fresh flakes of snow coming down upon us as we rode the ski lift to the top.  This lift, the Polar Express, goes over the mogul field on 10th Mountain Trail.  Great entertainment from the chair, watching skiers of all abilities take on the moguls. Night skiing is always a challenge.  The flat light means you have to feel the hill and be prepared for changes in the terrain that you may not be able to see.  You may pop into a puff full of confectioner's sugar, and have to angle into an ice patch on the way out of the turn. My favorite run tonight was Smith Walton.  This trail starts with a deceptively gentle slope, then suddenly falls into a fast, steep run.  It's a wide trail,...

Understanding the buyer As the seller, you can control three factors that will affect the sale of your home: * The home's condition* Asking price* Marketing strategyHowever, it's important to note that there are numerous other factors that influence a buyer, and you need to understand these consumer trends when you enter the sellers' market. The more your home matches these qualifications, the more competitive it will be in the marketplace. Your real estate agent can advise you on how to best position and market your home to overcome any perceived downsides. LocationUnfortunately, the most influential factor in determining your home's appeal to buyers is something you can't control: its location. According to the National Association of REALTORS(r), neighborhood quality is the No. 1 rea...

10 Questions to Ask Your Realtor about Selling a House Are you a full-time professional real estate agent? How long have you worked full time in real estate? How long have you been representing buyers? What professional designations do you have?Knowing whether or not your agent practices full time can help you determine potential scheduling conflicts and his or her commitment to your transaction. As with any profession, the number of years a person has been in the business does not necessarily reflect the level of service you can expect, but it is a good starting point for your discussion. The same issue can apply to professional designations. Do you have a personal assistant, team or staff to handle different parts of the purchase? What are their names and how will each of them help me...
