If you find an unfurnished unit that will do a short term term lease there are companies that will allow you to furnish the property with rental furniture. they will deliver as well as pick it up when your lease is complete.

Thought I would throw it out there for you as it may be an option you have not considered.

I see this thread is from a year ago though so hopefully you got it all worked out by now.

I am part of the Trapp Team at Keller Williams Showcase Properties in Braintree. This allows me to use the valuable resources from others on my team as well as the entire KW office. I will set you up with email notification whenever a unit like this becomes available for you to view. This enables you to view what is available in the area and pick the ones you want to see. This saves both you and I critical time when you find a property you want and we need to get ahead of a line of potential renters.
Please watch for you notification coming up this evening. I will call and follow up.

Talk to you soon,
Jacqueline Bohn

Hi Lauren: I don't view it to be too much of an issue unless you need 140 in the Norton area. 495 gets backed up but there are other roads you can take.

I lived in Mansfield for over 20 years and know it very well. There are affluent neighborhoods in town, but what is affluent to one may not be affluent to another. That needs to be a little more specific. All the schools are in a campus setting so everyone goes to the same school depending on their grade. This has worked out wonderfully as you no longer have parents asking why one child is doing this and another is not. If you prefer a more wooded and rural setting you may want West Mansfield, if you would like to be closer to the train East side of Mansfield may be your preference. There are some nice homes on the market now with very good prices. When the market was hot Mansfield prices were growing by leaps and bounds. It is a great relocation area as it has the commuter rail to Boston and Providence, and has access to 95, and 495, thus called the Golden Triangle. Please don't hesitate to contact me for more information.

It has always been our value system that a transaction must be a win/win situation for both parties or no deal. With our initial buyer consultation we go over the offer process, and how we come up with our reccommendations and advice on what to offer. If our clients are inclined to low ball one of the points we make is that if you offer too low you run the risk of insulting the seller so that he won't even counter. The other is that you don't want to make an offer so low that the seller must bring money to the table for the priveledge of selling you their home. Most of all, we point out that if the seller feels like they are being taken advantage of, if there are issues with the sale, or if you need them to cooperate with a glitch, they may find themselves on the short end of the stick. Win/Win is always the best way to go.

Sometimes we have clients that are just bound and determined to offer the lowball deal, and so we offer it as they dictate, they end up losing the house because they insulted the seller, and then they listen the next time.
