Question about condo.

Asked by Catherine Cataldo, Waltham, MA Tue Oct 21, 2008

IS there any condo fees, and if so, what does this include? Is there any basement at all, unfinished/finished? Also do you have any pictures of the kitchen? My budget is around late 200,000. Thanks,

Hi Catherine
I live in Watertown and saw your post - Medea seems to have the most complete answer for you and may be a good one to stay in touch with. Despite the condo you asked about being well outside of your budget she may have other listings that may be of interest to you. Some homes I finance have very attractive pricing as the sales price is subsidized by the builder for housing lotteries. Check with local housing authorities for availability as they come and go. I know that there are some in Natick but I've not checked with Watertown, Belmont, Waltham or other neighboring towns in a while.

I highly recommend you hire an exclusive buyers agent (not someone that represents sellers too) to protect your interests.
The property you are curious about is a 3 level townhouse condo with a asking price of $324,900 and condo fees of $300. Unfortunately it is a bank owned property which makes it VERY difficult to actually purchase. It has already been on the market for 109 days.

Here is all the information on the property. If you want to see it in person click the "See it" button :…

Hello Cathie,

First off I think we met recently at my open house on Edenfield Ave in Watertown on Sunday. As for this unit you are questioning, the condo fee is stated at 300 a month which includes: Master Insurance, Exterior Maintenance, Road Maintenance, Snow Removal. As for the basement and pictures; there aren't any pictures but I would be more then happy to set up an appointment to show you the condo. As for the basement, I have a call into the listing agent to find out and can let you know. You should also be aware that this property is bank owned at this point and there can be no changes made to the P&S and it is being sold "as is". These types of properties could be a great buy but it is up to you to do background checks and it could also take months to close a deal like this. Also the price listed is 324 which I am sure is somewhat negotiable as well.

Please feel free to email me directly with any questions at
