Hello, Just to add a bit of info regarding location. The property on State street in Peabody is near Mars Park, a well liked park for softball players. It's near the Salem border but the street isn't one usually used as a cut through Street from Peabody to Salem like nearby roads. I believe the grammer school, if that's a concern, is Welch School. I was a resident of Peabody and know the city very well. If you would like to search for homes/addresses you might want to use my website http://www.massachusettsnorthshorehomes.com.

In this market, I would suggest using a Buyers Agent to assist in your home search and purchase. A Buyers Agent works for the buyer and protects the buyers interests. A Buyers Agents services will not cost you any addition money. We are paid through the commission offered by the seller. The agent listing the property for the seller called a Listing or Sellers Agent is considered to be working only for the interests of the seller. If you have any questions you may call on me at 978-509-7840 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Pat Houlden, Vernon A. Martin Inc. Realtors. Happy home search!
