Eight Reasons Why You Need a Good Realtor

Posted 20 May 2014 | By | Categories: Boston Condos | No Comments

Some consumers think that they can save money by either buying or selling property by themselves. It might save money, but it also could cost you a lot of headaches and money in the long run. Park Place Expensive Real Estate Monopoly (Photo credit: Philip Taylor PT) Many services recently are designed to help homebuyers and sellers complete their own real estate transactions. Thus may give many a feeling of a real estate agent  a thing of the past. While handling all the detailed work yourself can save you on commissions that many real estate agents command, for many, flying solo may not be the way to go, and could end up being more costly than just a commission in the long run. Buying or selling a condo or townhome  is a major financial and emotional undertaking. You should not discard the notion of hiring a Boston Luxe Real Estate to handle these important transactions. Consider what Boston Luxe can provide you: Better Access/More Convenience. A real estate agent’s full time job is to act as a liason between sellers and buyers. They have access to all the properties listed by other agents what is needed to put the deal together and close. Example: if you are searching for a home, the agent will track down the homes that meet your requirements, get in touch with the sellers’ agent and make the necessary arrangements for you to look at the home. If you are on your own, you will have to play the telephone tag game yourself, and this could be even more difficult if you are shopping for homes that are for sale by owner. If you are trying to sell your home on your own, you will have to be available to take calls from interested people, answer questions, make call backs and appointments. Potential buyers will tend to move on to another property  if you do not call them back or do not respond right away. You may make appointments, rush home to show the house and no one shows up. Negotiating is Tricky Business. There are many people that do not like the idea of doing a real estate deal using an agent and think that direct negotiation between sellers and buyers is more open and transparent and allows the parties to look after their own interests much better. This may be true if you assume that both the buyer and seller are reasonable people who are able to get along. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the way it goes. Lets say that you, as a buyer, likes a home but doesn’t particularly like the wood paneled walls, shag carpet and the orange kitchen. If you are using an agent, you can express your dislikes of the sellers decorating skills and rant about how much it will cost you to upgrade the home without insulting the owner. For all you know, the sellers late mother may have lovingly chosed the decor herself. Your real estate agent can […]

Posted 23 February 2014 | By | Categories: Boston Condos | No Comments

According to Laura Raposa at The Herald, Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen are still going through the red tape and permissions to build a 7,465-square-foot main house; a 1,675-square-foot cottage for the help; and a 1,342-square-foot yoga studio in Brookline’s slice of Chestnut Hill. It seems they still need a waiver on the Yoga studio as their is a 150-square-foot limit on so-called accessory buildings. Architect’s rendering of the Proposed Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen’s new Chestnut Hill castle in Brookline MA.               It seems all that stands in their way now are the neighbors and of course the zoning commission.

Good News for Boston Real Estate

Posted 18 February 2014 | By | Categories: Boston Condos | No Comments

We heard some great news from Wells Fargo last week. It seems that they have lowered their standards on the public’s FICO scores. It will now be possible to qualify for a mortgage loan with a FICO score of 600. Of course that is if all your other financials are in order. Tom Goyda, a bank spokesman said, “The goal is to increase access to credit, especially for low- and moderate- income borrowers and first-time home buyers.” He continued, “These are fully underwritten, fully documented loans, consistent with FHA program guidelines and responsible lending principles.” There is no doubt that other lending institutions will follow suit, easing up the mortgage loan business a little. We know one thing this will give another small boost to the Boston Real Estate Market. The post Good News for Boston Real Estate appeared first on Boston Luxe Market Analysis.
