Typically this time of year puts pressure on all properties on the market, as yet unsold. It will depend on the home's price range. Cherie is quite right that homes in certain ranges are indeed going up despite the time of year. Homes that are priced between 5-600K are showing an increase in number sold as well as sold price of 3%, YOY (year over year). Homes that are in the 6-800K (source Terradata services bases searches from the MLS as well as off line sold homes) are indeed showing a decrease. I think it is because the sort of properties that are sought here would appeal to a buyer(s) that are searching for high scoring schools and want a comfortable home of 3-4 bedrooms, not especially a luxury home. Those will generally take a bit longer to sell, especially in the fall. But sell they do! Spring is a hot market for those motivated by a school calendar, but we have relocation buyers searching all year, those these are fewer in number. I think the 128 and 495 routes hold some influence as well. People want the closest commute that they can afford, and may use these as cut off points.
It is so important to drill down to the most vital data to get a clear answer.
I would be happy to discuss this further with you.
Hi Pamela, I realise this thread is dormant for you by now, but for others... I used a website called Always Check Your Builder and got the builders background disputes and credit and business history. I hadn't signed and actually changed builders because of their reports.
They might be able to help you... more

When you see /sold/ as part of the URL the property is no longer for sale and is instead being used to gather names and emails to sell as leads.
I would contact a local real estate professional to help save time and money.

If the house is in Westford and they pay Westford taxes I would assume they would go to Westford.
I would call the Acton School and ask them their thoughts.
Let me know if I can answer any other questions.
Hello Confused Home Buyer, The activity in the spring market in this area can be a bit crazy. I assume you are working with a lender on your purchase. The home will have an appraisal as part of the lending due diligence. The appraisal is another step in the process to verify value compared to other area recent home sales.
Buyers remorse is not at all uncommon. Rest assured that when you move onto moving day you will remember how much you loved the home and why you moved forward with your offer. There is value to the life that you will be enjoying in your new home.
For future reference, there is great value in working with a buyer broker who can help you to establish and understand value. Keep it in mind for your next transaction.... more
Sure you can sell you home by yourself, but get serious and ask yourself the questions others have posted in their answers. Here's a short blog on the subject.
A title is a legal document that establishes proof of ownership of a property. Issues can arise if there are outstanding problems regarding the property. Such issues can be fraud, forgery, contested ownership, missing wills, and if documents werenâ€™t processed properly. Title issues could take weeks or years to work on depending on the nature of the dispute.
Based on what you have stated, I would reconsider this property or would proceed with caution.... more
