Who is responsible for paying when a buyer wants the utilities to stay on, but then does not change them for a few weeks or a month and the seller is billed?

Taunton is pretty bad with their drug problem. If you are looking for a better community you could try North Attleboro, Norton, maybe Rehoboth but Taunton is one of the worst in the area. ... more

Typically the city takes care of it, but if they aren't then you can hire a service to do it for you. I would recommend asking your neighbors how they have it taken care of. There are a lot of different services available to us these days concerning rubbish removal, and I'm sure you can find one that works for you. Good luck! ... more

A Realtor will be able to provide you with the most accurate information on foreclosures. To my knowledge, all foreclosures end up with a real estate company at some point. As far as how long it takes to get into inventory, I've seen foreclosed homes go on the market after auction within two weeks. But I've also seen some homes taking over a year.

Once again, work with a trusted Realtor. We have great insight on properties then customers may think.

Hi Nana
Berkley has some wonderful areas; especially on the waterfront. The waterfront is on the Taunton and Assonet Rivers. These properties especially the higher end ones will retain their value better than those not on the water. ... more

I think the best option will be to build out your own in-law suite by converting a basement or attic space, or putting an addition onto a home (in law wing with separate entrance). It will give you more options.

Another option would be to consider a 2 family and there are currently 3 on the market right around your price range. Click this link to see them all with a map:

The only single family property coming up using the key word "in law" is the below. Looks like a complete gut renovation (but a nice lot). Chances are you will need to pay all cash (or put more than 20% down). I cant imagine you can get traditional financing for this project.

Here is every property on the market in North Attleboro:

Hope that helps!

The last sale on record in Twin Beech was $185,000, although this was last June. It had no garage and was in the front of the complex. There are currently 4 for sale, 3 with garages asking between 185,000 to 189,900. The prices in this complex have fallen quite a bit. We sold a few just a couple of years ago for around $225,000 and they had no updates. If you want any further information, please let us know. Regards, Erin and Janet Morrissey. ... more
