You should have addressed this in the purchase contract. The seller could be in default of your contract, you will have to have your buyer agent review it with you and if buying without an agent, have a lawyer review it. ... more

Westborough and Southborough are close and are great communities, safe, good schools, liberal. They are very small and very expensive. Perhaps Hopkinton would also work, the $450 is a challenge in these areas. Shrewsbury is also an option, in the town common area. ... more

Sorry this happened to you. Bottom line, you cannot get out of the contract for the financing contingency in your situation. Based on the amount you were putting down, your financing still may be approved because the loan to value ratio will be met. Therefore, you are able to get financed and this means the financing contingency does not help you. You really needed that appraisal contingency. I don't know how much your earnest money deposit is, but if it's $2,000 or less, I feel it may be easier and less of a headache to walk away and consider it a lesson learned. ... more

Hi Sonia,

I came across this thread as we are planning to move from the south shore area to the Worcester area for my husband's work, and we are looking at many of the same towns you were. I was wondering where you ended up and if you are happy with the town. We are having a hard time deciding which town is best for our family. I would love this to be the last house we move to while our children are young.

Thanks in advance :)

This home isn't for sale. It's a bogus "foreclosure" listing on Trulia. If it were available it would say "FOR SALE". If you're interested in buying a home you should call a local REALTOR who can work for you as a Buyer's Agent. Your agent can show you any available property, including all foreclosures. ... more

Finance Director at JMON Sullivan O. scamming the people with fake work ads:


Dennis B.

Principle at ARC Marine Consultants/Surveyors

Sullivan, John,

I followed up on this opportunity posted in this forum by another member on 12/12/14 and Nick finally responded last week. The instructions he provided were very fishy. This involves placing post/ads on websites offering 'private party funding' for property purchases, etc. The task was to place ads offering a certain amount of funding at a certain interest rate. The 'fishy part' was that you are told to 'make up' names and phone numbers to fill in the questionaires on these sites. After you complete the ad you are to email 'Nick' back with the names you posted so he can confirm the ad was posted (this is how you get paid)

I emailed 'Nick' asking why it was necessary to 'fake' some of the information in the ad and he has stopped responding to me. I believe this is a scam and also very illegal! If this was legitimate the correct names and phone contacts would be provided by 'Nick' and not 'made up'

I'm following this conversation now if you'd like to respond to my comments.

They did own the property in March (since I'm assuming your rent was due prior to the 15th) ... so you should have paid them rent.

As for April, possibly.... it depends on what they did with that money. If they forwarded it to the new owner ... then No. ... more

I'm not an expert but I believe you can. I'm not sure how bad your credit is but I have seen people purchase homes with not so good credit. There are many first time home buying programs that even help with down payment and closing cost. The only thing is most programs require you to pay a PMI with can add a couple or few hundred dollars onto your mortgage each month. Also some of these programs require you to live in the house for so many years 7-10. FHA is a good program to look into if your credit is not so good!! ... more
