The rental market in Concord is very strong. There is very little inventory and therefore good product goes quickly if price appropriately. As an investor myself with a condo in Concord that I have rented for the past 4 years I have never had any downtime without a tenant. If you want to talk about the specific condo and what you could expect to get for it, my number is 508-277-0566.

Areas are all about personal preferences, budgets, wants, needs, lifestyle; therefore consider researching areas of interest on your own, and take the time to visit more than once, then determine where your comfort level can best be reached; don't simply just entertain what other people think or say, another's opinion may not be anywhere near the best thing for you... ... more

I would use your 7-10 day window of due diligence to speak with both a structural engineer as well as a contractor to see if these alterations are possible. If after they review the home and give the thumbs up you could then hire them. You do not want to hire anyone until an offer has been accepted but you absolutely do want to make sure you use your due diligence period to do your homework on the house. If they tell you its not possible then you always have the option to back out of the offer and get your deposit check back ... more

The real estate market can change quickly as we've seen this past year. You don't want to be in the position of buying a new home without have sold your current property. Depending upon your home, market conditions, demand, it could take months for a home to sell if the market stalls.
Your best solution is to hire the right agent to coordinate the sale and purchase of a new home. If necessary, placing your things in storage is an option and renting until you find the right home at the right price in the right neighborhood. The purchase of a home is a long term investment that requires the best advice from a qualified agent.

My answer is biased, but I guess everyone's answers are somewhat self-serving. We have lived on Indian Pipe Lane for 23 years and think this Indian Pipe - Stone Root neighborhood is great. Homes here run just under to just over a million. And... we are moving and are selling our home with a very elegant interior that was designed and built with the best materials - granite, Jerusalem stone, mahogany, etc. See it at www.204iplconcord.com ... more

Yes, some owners will offer that to renters/buyers however it usually depends on how healthy or unhealthy a market is. For instance if the condo market in the part of Concord you are referring is strong the seller would likely rather sell their property than take the risk of carrying it. However if the market is soft you will have a stronger pitch to rent-to-own (all of which a good buyer broker can help you negotiate)

Hope that helps!

Is the question in terms of investment? If so have your exclusive buyer broker pull the sales statistics of each town to show you how the markets in each have been fairing over the last 4 years.
If your question is more personal ( i.e best place if I have kids (schools), or best place if I have to commute to Boston ...) then the answers will be quite different.

The absorption rate in Concord seems to indicate supply is almost equal to demand at about 4 or 5 months worth of inventory. Concord is an upscale and expensive community for sure, however, if affordability is an issue, and if you are young and adventurous, you may want to try for a multi-family in the West Concord area. There is an amazing re-vitalization plan going on there. The down-town area will be fabulous when it's completed. The older 2 family homes in West Concord may need a little work and upgrading but it would be worth the investment since prices have only declined, on average, about 15% Homes are still selling in Concord and values seem to have held pretty steady there. A 2-family in West Concord could be rented out for extra income to significantly off-set the mortgage. West Concord has it all for a renter - minutes walk to the commuter train to Boston, shopping and restaurants, as well as being part of a terrific family-oriented community. I know sharing a house is a lot to ask, but it could be considered a wealth-building process where sacrificing a little now means a lot more for the future. If you manage it well, you could eventually own the house and you'll always have the extra income coming in. ... more
