Try Milford or Bellingham, or any of the towns off of Rte 495 within 15 miles of Holliston. I know for a fact that both of those towns have reasonable rentals.

Depends. You can take advantage of the low price that a short sale or foreclosure will give you, but you need to be able in most cases to do some work in the property. You need to explore your options ... more

Angelaole this is a Great question!

1. The simple answer is, No, as that is not a finished room.

2. HOWEVER, it has tremendous VALUE IF the listing Broker knows how to market it. There are specific ways to show this VALUE in MLS and all brochures. The value marketing WILL attract buyers and you will obtain a higher offer.

If you or any one else you know is thinking of buying or selling please refer me. I will make you proud that you helped someone by referring me.

Hi Ryan -

I'd like to add to Mike's thorough answer.

There is still time for seller to list their homes for 1st time home buyers to take advantage of the $8,000 1st time home buyer tax credit. This is a powerful motivator to potential buyers. In some cases they may even be able to use part of that tax credit towards their down payment - thus qualifying more buyers.

The buyer must close by November 30, 2009 to qualify.

1st time home buyer is someone who has not owned a home in the past 3 years - so those who have been "sitting on the fence" waiting for the market to "bottom out" may qualify and cause a larger buyer pool.

So, if you have a home priced up to $400K..which would still be in the higher end of 1st home buyers...and it is priced BELOW the last comparable Sold home in the past 2 months...your home has a decent opportunity of selling.

Time is of the essence and a home owner in Holliston should list now for that specific opportunity.

Please feel free to call me for seller coaching: 508-479-9833

Best Wishes

Hi Scott !

YES! Your kids can hang out at the library - its a wonderful library and people are nice and helpful. The downtown section is easy to walk about. The Goodwill Park is in the center of town and it is a great place for kids of all ages. There are also 4 casual restaurants in the downtown section that welcome kids - they can get snacks, sandwiches and ice cream.

During school starts and endings there are crossing guards at key places to offer more safety for kids to cross the street - therefore making it possible for the kids to walk to town after school.

Many of the shopkeepers will get to know your kids - which makes our town feel so comfortable.

I have lived in Holliston for 18 years - I love the town - my family has enjoyed this town. I raised 2 sons here and they have turned out more than OK :)

So come on by for a visit - I will personally give you a tour - it would be my pleasure!

Absolutely, the homeowner needs to continue to maintain the house and property until the sale has recorded. If your daughter is doing a walk thru then the seller has agreed to allow her access to the house for that purpose. If there is a snowstorm that prohibits access it is the seller's responsibility to remedy the situation. Also, if there was a situation that someone was injured on the property proir to closing it would be the homeowner's responsibility ie...the current owner. ... more

Robin is correct. Also, as an appraiser, we count heated above grade square footage into the overall gross living area when appraising homes. So, whichever hat I'm wearing, Appraiser or Realtor, I say 'Go For It!" Sounds like a nice project. And yes, call it a sunroom! ... more
