Successfully closed on a short sale in Wakefield Massachusetts today. This home was a relatively easy one.  US Bank was the only lien holder and we received short sale approval in 15 days from submitting the package.  No deficiency judgements!! From the lender standpoint this was perfect, no issues no additional liens.  many times we have to deal with multiple liens, mortgage insurance companies, tax liens and so on..... Blazing fast... kudos to US Bank for a fast turnaround on this short sale.   If you are a homeowner in Middlesex County or Essex County Massachusetts and your are facing a possible foreclosure.  Give me a call.  I can explain your options and help you decide the best route to go.  If a short sale needs to be done, I am an agent with plenty of short sale experience.  Yo...

It's sometimes said that one of the main functions we serve as real estate agents is being "hand-holders".  Especially in situations where clients need our support rather than our expertise.  Like at the closing table when the deal is pretty much done and the attorney is going over all the paperwork and telling them where to sign, etc.  You're there to hold their hand and tell them that it's ok, all closings have this much paperwork and sometimes even more! I've been in the business for eight years and while I have done a lot of figurative "hand-holding", I'm pretty sure that I've never had to actually hold someone's hand to get them to calm down or make them feel better. That changed a couple of weeks ago when I took on a special assignment to help someone find an apartment on very sho...

Wakefield MA Foreclosed and Bank Owned Purchasing a home at a foreclosure auction has many risks to a potential buyer and in most cases the bank will bid and take possession of the property at auction. The property is then referred to as bank owned, REO (real estate owned) or foreclosed property. To search the MA MLS listings visit Wakefield MA MLS listings. A home owner may attempt a "short sale" whereby the bank agrees to accept less than the mortgage balance based on the owner's hardship and financial status. Obtaining approval can be a long and difficult process. Additionally, there is no assurance that the lender will accept an offer at or above the listed price. Bank-owned and short sale listings are often marketed with a real estate agent and placed in the Massachusetts Multiple ...

    With all the news saying "no one is going to get a mortgage" and me having to defend the Real Estate market each and every day because of this, I am proud to say Wakefield, Ma Real Estate is #7 in the United States.  This rank was reported by Business Week and then went on to all the local newspapers.  A gentleman from Business Week called me personally for an interview about why Wakefield is doing so well and what draws home owners into our town.  The poll was taken nationally based on the number of days properties spent on the market.  Wakfield was the only town within Massachusetts.  Of course just because compared to other cities Wakefield is doing well, it is still not at the top of its game and naturally prices are still down.  But I consider this a good thing because it gives...

Active Motion Physical Therapy (AMPT) may be new to the area, but is certainly a veteran of the business.  Husband and wife owners Kelley and Thomas Allardi have been practicing physical therapy since 1998.  Being a patient of theirs myself, I can tell you without a doubt that they gear 100% of their practice towards the clients wants and needs. They provide their patients with the knowledge of why their injuries happen and not only sooth their pain, but take the time to teach them how  prevent it from re-occurring.  Kelley also promotes a healthy lifestyle by offering weekly Pilates classes suitable for all ages and abilities.  For those of you who happen to have had joint replacement or the ever-popular "bad back" they have just the thing for you, Aquatic physical therapy. If you hav...

As sad as it is to see the Montrose school going, it does leave a big beautiful space for new families to join the Wakefield community. After much specualtion and taking the time to meet with the development expert who is leading this construction, Jeff Rhuda of Symes Associates, I have learned what exactly is to come. Not only is he a developemental genious, but he has proved himself also to be a polished yet personable gentleman. Now through all the speculation I have the right answer. The demolishion is scheduled to start in early September. Though this may be the most unpleasant time for neighbors, demo will be over in less than 3 weeks. Shortly after, piping for water and sewer will begin. If everything goes as planned sales will begin as early as November, with the homes going up ...
