Using personal testimonials for your marketing is such a powerful way to have a third party, the buying party sharing their good experience with you. This short testimonial comes from a call during my "up-time" with the agency. I get the calls that come in during this time and this prospect was looking for information about renting his girlfriends condo. I gave him the information he asked for and kept asking questions. Asking questions is the easiest and best way to stay in a conversation. It provides you the tools you need to help the person, once you fully understand the full story. Bryant works in the high tech industry and is very exact and methodical about his practices. As we got to understand the parameters of what he wanted to do, it was easy to set up the tasks to accomplish h...

Absolutely every buyer and seller has a story, some underlying reason for their behavior and actions.  Buyers have a bull’s eye they are looking for, and Sellers have price point; all any broker needs to do is listen and learn.  Ask a buyer to describe their favorite home.  They will tell you a story about sitting around a big dining room floor, or a tire swing in the back yard.  The associate fond memories to those spots, listen to this.  Look to deliver to them just such a home. A seller bought their home for a reason, why, you should ask?  They will give you great start on tracking down a new buyer for the home. Clues are left all around. By listening and paying attention rather than making decisions quickly you can find the way to tell a better story. Kitchen, Columbian Woods, Weym...

A Weymouth 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.A standard home inspection in Massachusetts is a visual examination of the physical structure and major interior systems of a residential building consisting of one to four dwelling units. It should be understood that there are certain risks inherent in the purchase of property and a home inspection is inherently limited in its scope and depth. The information gained from home inspection conforming to the Massachusetts Home Inspector Standards of Practice may reduce some of those risks, but the home inspection is not intended to provide the client with protection from all of the risks involved.

For the record, this is a true story that happened at the office I work at, way before I started.  My broker was there and has told me this story a couple times.  It's great.  How can I not share it? One summer in the early 90's, during the last foreclosure glut, our office listed a foreclosured home just south of Boston in Weymouth.  This foreclosure had a pool that was right on the ocean, still filled up and clean.  One afternoon, the office decided to drive down there and have a little pool party.  It was hot.  It was summer.  It was a free pool.  Why not, right? Things were going swimmingly.  Everyone was having a good time, enjoying the weather, and no doubt consuming a few cocktails.  Towards the end of the afternoon, someone noticed a car coming up the driveway that was not famil...

The Weymouth, MA condo market has seen a good dip in the sales pace in the final quarter of 2010.   However at the end of 2009 there was a push to get properties under agreement so that the buyers could take advantage of the First Time Home Buyer's Tax Credit.  With that rush now no longer in the equation, the volume of sales has dipped, or perhaps, moved back to the mean.  The good news is that pricing remains somewhat firm and within the range of sales at the time higher sales volumes.  In the final quarter of 2009 Weymouth saw 49 condos sell at an average sales price of $202,924 or $192 per square foot.  In 2010 Weymouth, MA saw 14 units sell at an average sales price of $195,761 or $203 per square foot. So the price per square foot is improving, keeping pace with the neighboring tow...

Weymouth, MA is a great suburb located 14 miles south of the greater Boston area.  Weymouth has an impressive inventory of single-family homes with many of these homes dating back to the mid 1800s.  It is unusual for Weymouth to offer any type of new construction, but the sale of property encompassing the old South Weymouth Naval Air Station has given Weymouth an opportunity for development.  Construction has already begun on approximately 478 new housing units in South Weymouth. Most of the 1,400-acre site is off Route 18 in Weymouth, but it also includes some land in Rockland and Abington. If you are interested in finding out more information regarding the new construction in Weymouth, contact me today to discuss this unique opportunity.
