Massachusetts Home Buying - The Final Property Walk-Through    My clients are closing on a home in Southborough and we just completed their walk-through in preparation.    The final walk-through should be done close to time of closing to make sure that home is ready for you to take possession.

You don't want to be left with something that they simply did not feel like moving.      What actually happens at a final walk-through?  Any repairs that were specified in the purchase and sale agreement should have been done. You need to go through the list and inspect each repair. For major repairs that have done by professionals, you should have been provid...

Southborough MA  - A  Relocation Destination If a relocation to Massachusetts is in your future, the town of Southborough MA should be high on your list.  Located just 25 miles west of Boston and, with easy access to all major routes, the town has some distinct advantages as a premium commuting area.   Southborough prides itself on keeping its distance from commercialism.  At the risk of offending MacDonald's and Wal-Mart - I have to mention that you will not find either of these establishments within the town's borders.    There is rather more of a quiet, pastoral atmosphere which is reminiscent of its earlier beginnings as a farming community.  The town is still home to the locally famous, Galloway Belted Cows. During the early days, Southborough relied on the Sudbury River as a sourc...
