Hi Vicki,
Sounds as if you are just starting out and your first step should be to talk to a local lender whether it be a bank, credit union or mortgage company licensed in Massachusetts. I recommend you talk with a few to see who you are comfortable with before having them run your credit as they will need to do that if you qualify otherwise. Good luck and if you need any referrals in the area which you are looking in please let me know. If you have a relationship already with a local realtor, that person may also be a good resource for you to begin your search. ... more

No matter what you're looking for there's probably a community in Becket that will fit your needs. Around the lakes and in the village of Becket the lots tend to be smaller, the houses closer together and therefore easier to become a part of the community. There are also areas of the town where the homes are tucked into the woods on larger lots with no neighbors in sight if that's what you want. And other areas with neighboring homes in sight but with some distance between them. It all depends on what you're looking for. And my job as a real estate agent is to help you find a property that works for you. ... more
