Hi Corb, you have some good info given already, I would add that in addition to talking to the present lender and your Real Estate Attorney, you also contact your CPA. There are potentially serious tax issues you should be aware of and make a part of your decision making!
Best regards, Jim

Home Buying in Dorchester-
Well, I think you have a resounding answer. We all feel very strongly about you having the representation you deserve at what should be at no cost to you.

If you are looking to find a professsional in the Dorchester area take a look at your Massachusetts Association of Realtors website to find a Realtor that you feel is a good match for you.

I agree with the comment made by Colin Emmons about seeking out an agent that has earned the ABR, Accredited Buyer Representative, designation. I have the ABR designation and I feel that it is important education to have and that the agent you choose can utilize that knowledge to be helpful to you as a buyer.=

Hey Diane -

I've listed and sold numerous houses on Monadnock St. in Dorchester over the years.
The last one was just a week ago, and I like the street. There are some gorgeous turn of the century homes there
at a reasonable price.

I'd be glad to tell you who lives where, and introduce you to the folks I know on the street. I've been there at the crack of dawn, mid day, afternoons, evenings, weekdays & weekends - with never a problem. As with any neighborhood, I always say hello to whomever passes & lock the car doors>

Best of luck, Diane & welcome to Dorchester!
