400's. We are in a town house development. The estimate you have for our is low 200's. It seems crazy! Stinks because some banks use this a bit for refinancing purposes. Thoughts?

Hi there! The closest serious transportation hub to Carlisle is Lowell, MA. That said, there are a number of "park & rides" near you and also Waltham has a commuter rail stop, depending on where you live in Carlisle. Luckily for you, Lowell is both close by and would also give you a reverse commute, allowing you to avoid a lot of traffic! ... more

Any home can flood. The real question is which ones are less likely to flood, and what can you do to keep them from flooding.

Topography: You do not want a house that is at the bottom of a hill. You always want to see a place where the water can go other than in your basement. Don't forget your basement is built pretty much the same way you build a swimming pool. Make sure that the grading is as such that the water runs away from your home.

Gutters: Make sure that the gutters are clean and the downspouts are connected. There should be extensions at the base of the downspouts or a french drain system. Don't let the water pour right back into the home.

Sump pump: Contrary to many people, I like sump pumps. Do you buy a car without windshield wipers because you HOPE it is not going to rain? If you have a high water table and even if you don't, a sump pump can really help. Again, make sure that the pipe exits away from the foundation. BTW, it is illegal to put your sump pump into the sewer system.

Every site has pros and cons. This one has a place to be found, but it also distracts from the source of the information. They often have dated and incorrect info. They are in the business of selling ads and collecting emails rather than selling real estate.

If you're working 3rd shift you can make the trip very quickly - 20 minutes. If you are going to be traveling from 5-8am and 3-7pm, I'd plan an hour, and if you get there earlier you can celebrate. Of course if you are spending an hour or more commuting, why not live on Cape Cod? ... more
