Hi..Im not sure I understand your question as this house already sold in Nov 2012 and stated it needed a total rehab. It listed at 229,000 and sold at 257,000 prior to being rehabbed. Depending upon what was done to it to bring it back to an updated home will help determine pricing along with neighborhood and other factors if going
back on the market. Hope this helped.

I can't see the issue or the house, but $75k sounds absolutely ridiculous. I would call in a real professional and one that does not have a horse in the race for a real idea.

You need to check with the town's historical committee for their restrictions.

If you meet the criteria to buy it, then it can be great. It's yours and when you decide to move, someone else will meet the criteria.

not sure of the question but my office is right by that home.

There is a BofA ATM and branch in the Roche Brothers shopping center.

Since opinions are often subjective, consider a visit to both schools-- ask for a tour of the facilities, speak to the superintendent, principal, teachers, etc., and then make your determination, where will your comfort best be reached....

Here's a great place to get started. The home needs to be fannie mae home, but you'll have to talk to a broker to get the final yes or no. There's a list of brokers linked to the following page.

The townhome is beautiful. It has been on the market since 2007 at an inflated price of $524,000. Since then, the seller has been chasing the market. In August of 2009, the home was listed for $485,000, went Under Agreement the end of April, 2010 when the property was listed for 449,000, back on the market on May 1st.

The townhome is located on Route 135 which is a main road. The location is desirable because it is within walking distance to downtown Natick and all the wonderful shops,restaurants, main library, and public transportation.

There may also be mortgage restrictions depending on how many units in the complex are owner occupied.

If you would like me to do further research on this home and provide a Market Analysis of the value of the home, please feel free to contact me.

Best Regards,
Deb Feldman

Absolutely! I've had buyers that wanted homes in specific neighborhoods where there were no homes on the market. Through our multiple listing service we have access to public records which will give us the addresses for a neighborhood. I have sent letters to those owners telling them about my buyer and asking if they would consider selling. I didn't have great success because they are usually very desirable areas and owners are there for that same reason and therefore don't sell often. If you have a buyers agent ask them to do the work for you. Good luck. ... more

The best suggestion that I could make to you would be to find a Buyer's Agent that you trust and develop a relationship with. When an agent knows that you are committed to working with them - he/she will make sure that you are on the top of the list to be notified as soon as a listing comes on in the area that you are loooking for.

Local market knowledge is key! Good Luck in your home search!

Hi Mj- I have family in Natick, and also worked in RE development in competition with Pulte- so take this with a grain of salt...
South Natick is a fine and decent area to live. Good overall location; close enough to Boston and the main businesses on Rt 495 and 128.... Plenty of parks and green space.

In my opinion, I've heard some questionable things from Pulte. They are one of the only national homebuilders that have done anything in Massachusetts. Them and Toll Brothers. Most people that I talk with would rather work with a local/ regional Builder instead of the big corporate entity. If you want some more detailed info on things I've heard Re: Pulte, feel free to give me a call or email.
Thanks and good lcuk,

Ken L.

That's a matter of preference. Some advantages are that if you have kids that would go to that school, it's nice and convenient and close by for any school functions. I don't think that it's a disadvantage in price like being on a busy street or backing up to rail road track may be. ... more

Hi MI,
I think the North natick area can be highly desirable, it is a beautiful area. It depends on your needs and lifestyle. Many year ago, there was always a "right and wrong side of the tracks" mentality within most towns.
Today, people want to be in a good community, and an easy commute. South Natick has always been very desirable "the right side of the tracks", but North Natick might be an easier commute depending where you work. Walnut Hill and Natick center is good as it is close to commuter rail. The whole Town is wonderful and you should try and find a home you love and in a convenient location. Just my opinion! I hope this is helpful.
If you would like to search for homes by MAP Search, go to my website (below) and "Search Homes" it will show the search results on a map. Feel free to contact me. Best Regards, John
