Many subjective variables to consider: price of the home, what has the homes sold and for how much in that neighborhood, the condition of this home, etc. Your realtor should be familiar with the neighborhood to help you make the right offer and decision. If you signed a buyer agency agreement, your realtor is the one to ask these questions.... more
Sometime renting may make sense. You may or may not be aware, but it is possible to buy a property with no down payment and also no closing costs. Also, you dont need stellar credit (it can be just ok, past foreclosures, bankruptcy or short sales are fine). If you would like some help get in touch. A three bedroom purchase would be about 1800 per month.... more
Hi Melanie, if you haven't already done so, you need to get pre-qualified by a mortgage professional. Any offer you write will need to be accompanied be a pre-qual letter. If you need assistance or wish to get educated about the home buying process I'd be happy to assist you. Shari... more
You may want to consider purchasing an "Affordable" unit. In Massachusetts there is a program that allows people within a certain income bracket to purchase condominiums at a fixed price. If you qualify, there are often down payment assistance programs as well. For example there is a development in Danvers, MA - The Residences at Rose Court - that has new construction condominiums where 25% of the units are designated as "affordable". The Income Limits: 1 Person HouseHold is $47,150, 2 Person HH $53,900, 3 Person HH $60,650, 4 Person HH $67,350, 5 Person HH $72,750

My husband and I grew up in Danvers and are raising our family in Danvers. My son will start 1st grade at the Highlands school next week and my daughter attends a pre-school in town. I often refer my clients to the following websites so they can research stats on the town and be able to obtain contact information:
In the MA Dept of Educational website above, just enter the town of Danvers or any other town you might be considering. I am very familiar with the local area if you have any questions. I would look forward to the opportunity to assist you if you need a realtor. Good luck with everything!

Melissa Whenever two parties agree by signing a Contract to Purchase which is a Legal and Binding Contract, it is our responsibility as real estate agents to put that property UAG when it is a solid deal and is going to close, otherwise we put the property highlighted red as active if we feel it's in the best interest of the Seller to continue marketing the home. Unfortunately we can get reported and fined when we don't put the home under agreement and keep it active. It's a lose lose situation for a listing agent. I'm sure there was no wrong doing on the listing agent's part her/his fiduciary is to the seller and I'm sure the seller took the offer that they felt was in their best interest. With all these websites that can grab out inventory as listing agents that we have no control over our inventory other than our own company website and the Multiple Listing Service. I do get tired of the general public accusing real estate agents of unethical doings, I have been in the business for over 19 years and feel that we as real estate agents work together to get the job done. Unfortunately, your offer wasn't the better of the offers and it's time for you to move on and find the home that's meant to be yours.... more
