Assuming you are looking in Lakeville,MA 02347 - I would not look at price per square foot. Outside the city (Boston), price per square foot is not really a measure of value. I look at it as a reference point only. If most homes are selling say between $275 to $295 per SQFT, then something price at $300+ per SQFT may be high. ... more

In my case, because I am trying to sell my home, the zoning requirements for a septic system in this town have been upgraded. So in order for me to be able to sell, the septic system must be upgraded to meet the new zoning requirements. A financially stressed seller may sell the house with "Title V upgrade", or "meeting Title V requirements" will be the reponsibility of the buyer. ... more

Hi 'D Home Buyer' from 02347,

If you go to Town Hall BOH office, and ask to see the file for this address: you will find that the Title V inspection has failed. The next step would be a percolation test. After that, it costs thousands to have an engineer design the septic plan that will be installed in the future. Then the proposed plans must be approved by the Town. Then you get estimates from installers so you know how much it will cost you to repair/replace the septic.

This home was offered for sale, over last Spring, as a 'short sale'. This means that from the seller's current market value of the home, there will be a shortage from paying off his mortgages. The sale will require the owner's lender's approval, (that they will accept LESS than the payoff amounts). Since that hasn't happened in the last six months, the mortgage may be in default. If you research in the public record about foreclosure notices, you may find more information about how to proceed.

Why not ask the owner if it is available? Maybe their financial situation has improved, and there is no longer a reason for them to sell it?

Hope this is helpful...if YOU have an update or additional information for me about this home on the corner of Route 18 and Crooked Lane, please contact me. Take care, Tracy 508-692-4091
