Hi Brad, I have never built a deck in Boston, but I have in the Rochester area.

Abby..You can definitely purchase the home...the down side is that a mortgage is usually based on a certain percentage that the bank will lend. If the house comes under the appraised value you may have to make up the difference. If you love the house and plan to live in it for about 3 to 5 years it still would be a wise investment.. we find homes here on the Cape sometimes not appraising, but the Buyer is willing to pay the difference..or get a smaller loan..I wish you luck...It is a wonderful adventure...Donna Lapsley ... more
