Stoneham is a great location with nice parks and fields for recreation. In the last 10 yrs two new schools were built and other were renovated. The down town area was spruced up including a new park with gazebo where they hold summer concerts. Easy access to Rt 95 and 93 along with public transportation to Boston. Several grocery stores and golf courses.
I recommend starting with getting qualified for a mortgage and connecting with a Realtor. I can handle your mortgage qualification. I can recommend two realtors that are life long residents of Stoneham and both of these professional mothers raised their families in Stoneham. I am also local with our office in Lynnfield.

Kevin Vitali answered:
When doing a short sale, many times the person who is negotiating the short sale charges a fee. They have many hours into a transaction and should be paid.

I use a division of a law firm who charges a negotiating fee of up to 2% of the transaction. This fee typically is paid by the first lien holder. In some cases I may have to put some money towards that fee as a listing agent.

In the 4 or 5 years I have been doing a short sale, neither the buyer or the seller has had to pay the negotiating fee.

I moved in my boyfriend 4 years ago who owns a house that has a shared driveway with the neighbors from hell. The main issue is that their house faces the driveway (which is dumb), while everyone else house faces the street. So, with that being said, anytime they have company their guest feel its okay to pull in the middle of the driveway in park. There has been times where we have to sit in wait because one of their guest just park in the middle of the driveway. I had it, The cops have been called so many times in the pass 2 years, they threaten to file a wrongful use of 911 on the neighbors (so, now they dont call them). My advice to anyone that has a scared driveway, RUN! My boyfriend has been int hat house for 14 years so, his kind of stuck but, not me. I m out! DO NOT BUY A SHARE DRIVEWAY. ... more

I would not buy a home on a slab. They are magnets for termites and if water builds up out side the home it will find a way to get into the home. I have bought and flipped at least 5 homes and viewed at least 60 during the process. The worst one was the slab. The house was infested with termites. https://innovativepest.com/2014/07/termites-in-a-slab-construction-home/ ... more
