Hi Lynda, You need to work with a Buyer Agent from the North Shore. I would be happy to view the property with you and do a market analysis for you. I see you are from Lexington, I use to live on Follen Hill in Lexington. Beautiful town! If you are thinking of moving to Gloucester you will love the north shore especially Gloucester. Lots to do there! Give me a call at 978-882-4346 if you would like some help buying a property on the north shore.

My experience has been that, with only 2 exceptions: paying an 8% gross marketing fee, then offering out 5% to the Buyer Agent community causes great excitement & interest, thus demand, resulting in higher sales prices - the net result should usually be a seller net higher than paying a reduced fee for poor results! (The caveat being it won't work when there are similar competing products, ie: a condo complex, then the buyer will usually go strictly for price/condition). ...after all, that offering should really only be 1% or 2 above what you might otherwise expect to pay a true professional with experience, systems and results, so it is a small investment in achieving a higher net - a win-win for all involved!... more
