  • Short Sale Real Estate Transactions in Weymouth an Quincy MA

    Posted Under: Market Conditions in Weymouth, Home Buying in Weymouth, Home Selling in Weymouth  |  May 23, 2011 7:39 PM  |  3,425 views  |  No comments

    Can you believe that between Weymouth MA and Quincy MA that there are currently twenty-six single family properties offered for sale as a Short Sale? And yet another thirty-one more condos to add to that number?  And twenty-eight properties in the last six months have been sold as completed as short sales?

    Well as much as it appears that the local real estate market has shown some signs improvement, and my Market Reports indicate the same, it also appears that there is no shortage of people who owe more than their home is worth - even locally.

    "Oh, that doesn't happen here."  We have all heard that before, that the bad news in the real estate market is in other communities, not in our backyard.  The facts don't lie, in the Plymouth area, there are over 57 homes for sale now that are short sales.  Short Sales may very well become part of the new normal.  And you owe it to yourself to learn about this market lexicon.

    What is a short sale?  In very simple terms, a short sale is a real estate transaction where the seller sells their home for less than is owed on the outstanding mortgage(s), and the lender agrees to release the mortgage on the property for less than the lender is owed.  Thus the lender is left with a short fall on the balance of the note.  In some cases the lender may well forgive this short fall, but not in all cases.  Also,  it is worth pointing out that lenders will not simply agree to a short sale simply because you owe more than your home is worth.  There needs to be a valid hardship before a lender will even consider allowing a short sale.  I have written a longer blog post called, "Massachusetts Short Sales, Everything You Always Wanted to Know But Don't".  This post covers the topic in much more detail.  I have also up loaded a video on Massachusetts Short Sales.

    When selling a home in and around Quincy MA, it pays to have a pro in your corner representing you.  And this is even more important when attempting a short sale.  Will your agent dominate Google with an Internet presence?  Click here to see a brief overview in my online marketing Flip Book Presentation. Here is list of Real Estate interview questions to ask when interviewing your agent, that will help you determine if you are hiring a successful broker or not!  Curious about a short sale because you owe more than your home is worth?  Go to MassForeclosureHelp.com and get answers to your questions.

  • 5 Royal Crest Unit 8 Randolph MA Just Sold!

    Randolph MA Real Estate 5 Royal Crest Unit 8 - Just Sold!

    5 Royal Crest, Randolph, MA

    Randolph MA Condos for Sale ~ Just Sold 5 Royal Crest Unit 8 Randolph Massachusetts. Listed at $74,900 and sold at $64,950  by Bill Tierney Virtual Homes Real Estate. Closed on March 15, 2011.

    Here is a transaction where I helped a first time home buyer become a homeowner.

    A “fixer upper” or in need of some TLC so far as condos go is what you would call this Randolph MA Condo.  However it had the benefit of being in a strong condo association with a healthy ratio of owners to investors.

    This was a bank owned property, or a foreclosure.  It had been on the market or over 150 days before the buyer toured the unit.  It was in need of upgrades in both the bathroom and kitchen.  As well as a good coat of paint and new carpeting.  But in the market of Randolph MA condos for sale, this was one of the least expensive units offered for sale at the time.

    The attraction with this Royal Crest unit home is the easy in/easy out location in which it is located. The Royal Crest Condo association provides simple access to routes 128, 95, and 93 since the association is located on Route 28 a few minutes south of Route 93.  The association is well maintained with a pool and deeded parking too.

    This particular unit had a total of four rooms, one bedroom and one full bath. There was approximately 663 square feet. The unit also has one deeded parking space.

    While this unit did need some work, the recent sales in the association certainly support a complete renovation of the unit.

    The property was a great opportunity for a first time home buyer to come and take a condo in need of a lot of a little TLC and make something out of it. These are the kind of opportunities that first time home buyers love!
