50 days for negotiations seem awfully long. I agree that you should determine why you are selling and your real estate goals before deciding to put on or pull your listing.

I like the way Gary thinks down below .. it could save you lots of money in the long run. You may be a bit shocked at the sticker price for the deck , permits and the crane to get the material to the top of the building. Good luck ... more

Fire departments and code officials do not consider windows as a means of egress. A bedroom must have a source of natural light and ventilation. This is a basic life safety, health, and welfare requirement of all building codes in the US. ... more

Hi Bobby,

Are you looking for actual software for the Mac? I've had plenty of success using SaaS (software-as-a-service) models - specifically Norada's Solve360, and 37 Signals' Highrise. ... more

We agree that "price ranging" is at best confusing to today's buyers and in most cases serves as more of an obsticle more than a vehicle to bring the parties together.

I'm not sure if you are still looking, but just came across your post...

Winthrop is a hidden seaside community often overlooked by many. It's a town that faces West, so your views are of the entire Boston skyline and sunsets. The nice thing is it's only 5 milies from downtown Boston. A commuter ferry is also going to be established which will go right into Rowes Wharf.

Your price point can afford you direct waterfront, whether home or condo.
Check out The Residences at the Atlantis Marina

This is a luxury brand new condo community on direct waterfront and a new marina. If you are into boating, you can purchase a condo with a slip. All condos face the water with private balconies, and views are amazing. High end luxury finishes throughout. Your pricepoint can afford you one of our deluxe units. Also, every unit comes with 2 deeded parking spaces...and we have a heated underground garage! (Something you'll appreciate come winter in New England!)

It's a thought...I'm also well versed in Swampscott, Marblehead, Nahant...all Northshore communities reasonably close to Boston.

Feel free to email or call with any questions and/or if you wish to check out The Residences at the Atlantis Marina.... 617-990-2209

Wishing you all the best...

You want to chose an agent with a strong online presence, meaning one whose website is on the first page of the search engines when people search for homes in your area. Just owning a website is nothing special nowadays. It's just like owning a brochure for your company. You need to market your online brochure - website well. ... more
