Hi. I'm sorry to hear about your parents' home. Have they talked to an attorney and a consumer advocate? Neither will charge them any thing out of pocket and we may be able to have the bank agree to a short sale instead of foreclosure which will have much less impact on your parents credit and they can discuss if they can avoid a deficiency or not.

For you and your friend purchasing, which bank all depends on the loan program and down payment etc that you are comfortable with. I am more than happy to help you out with an attorney referral and also referring a lender to help you with financing. Shoot me a text, call or email. 774-232-1690

The community benefits from the taxes being reinvested back into it - Westborough has some of the top schools in the state as well as great local amenities and public services.

This particular Builder raises the prices when they get a "run" of deposits. The amount varies by Community, the 'run' is usually 3 Deposits taken..The value is greater also as they near completion of the project as well. If interest is is great it is wise to lock in early, thus ensuring your home will increase in equity as the Community grows!

What a beautiful antique house! It has only been on the market for 34 days which isn't long for Westborough where the average days on market in the last year has been 88 days.
Looks like it was bought out of foreclosure by a developer so it isn't finished so it could simply be sitting on the market because it doesn't show well and needs renovations. That said, the current seller is offering to do some renovations as part of the deal ... "Disclosure: Property sold as-is at this price, or seller can work with buyer to customize the restoration of the interior for additional cost."

I would contact a local lending professional to help with this answer.
There is not enough detail in your question.

I know this guy can be helpful:
Bob Tranchell Total Mortgage Services LLC (508) 367-5731 cell

As for owner financing, a real estate professional can search MLS for that info.

I have sold homes on Robin Rd. I don't think there is a "reason" why people are selling. Sometimes that just happens.

I will tell you that many of the homes are small and were built with a thin wall system. No big deal, but different than most other homes from a construction stand point. ... more

Hi Ann K,

This is a good resource for finding out that may be able to help you with your questions. There is also an application on the right hand side of the screen for you to review .

The best bet is to talk with a good lender. I can refer several to you (including one at Mortgage Master's, from the website above) that will provide professional advice if you like.

On the Fence answered:
Couple of comments on "testing" a property for electromagnetic energy levels and then deeming it safe.

No one knows what a safe number is and what level is dangerous. There is good epidemiologic evidence linking power lines to some cancers, particularly childhood cancers. However because the end point is rare even in the exposed group there is not enough power in any particular study to establish a safe cut off point.

In fact no one has ever attempted to deduce a safe and unsafe level of exposure. All anyone knows is that living close to power lines in childhood increases your risk of cancer. Thanks Realtards for your input. Why dont you stay out of scientific discussion and go back and get your data straight about home sales over the past 5 years.

Jill answered:
I can tell you the whole story. I live in this neighborhood and know exactly what happened.

The person who sold the house and moved last year was a long time real estate agent in W'boro. She had trouble selling the house and finally used her connections to sale it to CiL. When it became apparent the house was sold and to whom it was sold to many households in the area raised objections and there is still a possible lawsuit brewing over this. We are obviously not happy to have a group home in our neighborhood and we are all furious with our former neighbor, the realtor, who did this. She has skipped off to FL, and doenst care about the stigma of her former street.

A house around the corner is now having trouble selling and they have given up and now are trying to rent it out. Thanks a lot LD, nice to have a property zoned as charity on the street

Louis Wolfson answered:

So people that aren't buying today at the lowest rates will buy when rates go up?

I was taught when I first got into investment real estate in 1974 as rates rise, prices fall.

Math is a wonderful thing, it is constant.

What does change is supply, demand and income.

Tue Nov 1, 2011 answered:
My guess is the market wont see any big changes until about 2014. I bet the inventory remains fairly low with small boosts in the obvious seasons (fall/spring and parts of the summer)
The elections may boost things a little bit - add some consumer confidence into the mix - but as a country we have such big picture problems that more time will be needed for a recovery.
How will this affect local markets? Well, the wealthier towns will probably hold their value but, again, the inventory will thin out so transactions may continue to drop. Looks like MA wont hit 40,000 transactions in 2011 the lowest in 2 decades!

Wboro_gal answered:
Since you posted this question rates have fallen nearly half of a point. If anything positive was happening in the RE market rates would have stayed around 5 or even risen.
Also notice the little "updates" about metrowest sales have disappeared lately, this is b/c the numbers are disturbing to realtors.

The second part of your question is more interesting. I have also noticed that Trulia (and Zillow) will take down negative slanted posts about the RE market, even those lacking attacking or rude lingo.
