Hello Smilenkov,

I agree with Diane. Contact a real estate agent in the market you are interested in and they can provide you copious amounts of data to your hearts delight! Depending on their Multiple Listing Service (MLS) most agents should be able to provide you Listing Price to Final Sale Price. I would also ask for any seller subsidy and subtract that from the final sales price to get to a true net sales price. Also the real estate professional should be able to also tell you if the buyer what type of financing the buyer used: be it a conventional, FHA, or VA loan, or if the buyer paid cash for the property. Cash buyers can indicate investors and you may see patterns that some zip codes have a higher percentage of cash buyers than others which could signal an area in transition that investors see as a profitable market. I wish you luck getting the data you need! ... more

When you see /sold/ as part of the URL the property is no longer for sale and is instead being used to gather names and emails to sell as leads.
I would contact a local real estate professional to help with this answer and to save time and money.
(Not me, I'm on the Cape, but I can help you choose a local pro if you want help doing so.)

Hi
I hope you are enjoying the holiday weekend. Condos usually have a higher turnover rate than single family homes. People often buy a condo as a starter home then upgrade to a larger home a few years later. Others buy a condo when down-sizing from a larger home.

Feel free to contact me if I can answer additional questions for you. (781) 363-0485.

Jodi Johnson answered:
I get asked the same questions whether it is a home owner of a 1M home or a rehab. What should I spend my money on to sell this home at a reasonable price? As a professional Stager and a local real estate agent, I spend several hours each week consulting(complimentary) with home owners to help guide them in the direction to meet their goals. If I could answer your questions on a forum, I would be more than happy to, but unfortunately without walking the property and viewing the inside of your home it is impossible to explain what you should and should not spend money changing/fixing/updating, etc. ... more

The Market in Westwood is very strong! I recently listed a home in the $870,000 price range and had three written offers after the first Open House. Westwood is a desirable location for Boston commuters and the school system is ranked in the Top 10 each year in Boston Magazine. ... more

Laurie Crispin answered:
Hi Bill,

In most areas, including Walpole, the tax assessment for a home does not tend to be a good indicator of selling price. If you were to look at the most recent 50 sales in Walpole right now, you'd see that some are selling quite a bit above assessment, while a few are listed and sold below. The real indicator for selling price will be the other recent sales in the same neighborhood ('comps') and the condition of the home itself. Pricing changes so frequently that you have to be looking at comparable properties every day to stay on top of it. I live in Walpole, myself. If you're thinking of selling or buying, give me a call! ... more

Lynne Hagopian answered:
Hi..I agree with the other comments written. You need to talk with your buyer's agent to determine if condition was reflected in the asking price and pull sold property comparisons to help determine market value prior to making an offer. If the property is an "as is" sale, be sure to still have the home inspected so you know what you are getting in to in regards to repairs, but note that the seller may not be adjusting price or fixing anything, so your offer would need to take those items into consideration ahead of offer but are to still be contingent upon home inspection so you if you decide not to purchase you have an out without losing your deposit. If a regular sale and the home inspection detects anything major, you can ask the seller to please take care of it or issue you a credit towards closing costs. However, remember you viewed the property in the condition it is in so anything apparent you would see now. If it is all cosmetics that you are talking about, try to get some estimates on what it would cost to update each area so you have an idea of what you are looking at for future expenses if able to live there while you update. Good luck and hope this helped!

Hi Allan,
If you want to look up a deed, you can go to http://www.masslandrecords.com and from there click on the county you wish to search. That will take you to the Registry of Deeds online search function for that particular county. The directions online should be fairly self-explanatory.
Good Luck!
Christine
