I live at the bottom of beautiful mt tom. My basement is and has always been completely dry. Areas particularly prone to this challenge are those properties close to the Oxbow, where properties on East Street Easthampton, meet those on route 5 Northampton.

Thanks for your prompt responses. It seems a bit inefficient to me that the listing doesn't mention that fact upfront. In fact, I think that search agents like this one and MassRealty should offer 55+ as a search filter criteria (and it's inverse which is not 55+). ... more

Hi, I'm Benajmin F Livingston Jr., personally, my own business sense tells me before placing any property on the market for sale is to increase it's value. The foundation and the roof is a major building structure and a neccessity. Repairs to both of these increase property value no matter who makes the repairs. The seller may be resonsible if it falls below MA building codes. If not, it's the buyer's responsibilty.

Conducting certain renovations increases property value...always equals higher selling price. The buyer can always negotiate a lower selling price, if problems are resolved by the seller. At the current time, it's a great to purchase a property.

If a buyer is responsible for any repairs, make certain to use licensed subcontractors only. They are licensed and certified. They're responsible, will do professional, high quality work. And will be glad to resolve any problems. Doors may open to other valueable options...or other useful information.

I would say it is more difficult to sell FSBO, with a condo but that depends on the signage you can get. I recommend using an agent but if you go the FSBO route get in contact with a local mortgage broker to qualify your buyers for you. ... more
