Framingham, Natick, Southborough, Westborough, Sudbury, Wayland, Ashland are also very low in inventory. The range from 200-550k is the lowest I would say affecting a lot of first time home buyers with multiple offer situations occuring on nice properties that come on the market in very short time.
Anyone want to sell in the area? Call me...timing is great right now!
If you are for sale by owner, Trulia does not allow the post, you can however try blogging about the property; if and when you do list with an agent, he/she can post it for you, jus ask; or consider any flat fee realty company that feeds into this site.... more
co-ops are not as prevelant in MA ( I assume your parents is in MA) they are not well understood by the public and many in the real estate community. In NYC they are the predominant form of ownership.
Do you have a realtor who is familiar or has sold in this complex before? Perhaps you can find out from someone on the board there, who has been selling them.
Good Luck... more
