Burlington, MA Real Estate News

(EXIT Premier Real Estate)
I've had the most successful year in Real Estate to date!Since August, I listed or sold homes in the following towns in and around Burlington:  1 home in Arlington, $395,000; and 3 homes in Burlington, $345,000, $460,000 & $330,000. Currently, I have two homes actively on the market now.  A new construction home in Billerica listed for $489,900 and a home in Medford listed for $329,900.  Why have I been so successful when other homes are lagging on the market...?  My marketing plan is by far, the most powerful and effective plan around.  When the market zigs, you have to zag...If you are not on top of your game, you loose.  Don't let your largest asset be part of the losing team!  Go with a winner...Buy or sell your home with me...We'll make a GREAT team together!  Can You Do Something ...

December, 2007Happy Holidays! During a recent staff meeting, agents were asked to give a description of another agents' personality. It's called Personality Profiles 101.  (You may have already done this in your job).  It breaks people's personalities down to 4 groups, D, I, S, or C.  I was deemed a VERY high "C".  In that profile, I am described as someone who is organized (to the Max, I must say), very detailed oriented, friendly, outgoing, and sensitive to a person needs.  Are you looking for an agent who has these qualities to work for you?  I work to make sure the entire transaction goes smoothly...its part of my personality!  Can you so do something with this?

With so much negativity about the market, I wanted to just send a piece of positive news about our local real estate in Burlington.  Although we have plenty of inventory and not many buyers, it seems, there is a ray of hope.  An associate of mine here in Burlington, Joanna Schlansky, a Burlington real estate agent, sold six houses... yes.... SIX between November 30 and December 6.  Congratulations Joanna and lets hope this trend continues locally as well as for all of our other AR friends!Visit Joanna's Burlington, MA real estate website for more information.

My Burlington Thoughts....I am not a real estate agent and I have no actual numbers that I'm taking this from, but I was driving around Burlington, MA the other day and I had an observation....There are a lot of houses for sale.It seems to me that this is a great time to be buying a house.  I wish, when I was purchasing my house, that I had this type of selection.  Another observation, while at my kids' school open house yesterday.  There are a lot of young kids in town.I have never seen the open house so crowded.  Is there a correlation?  Is the quantity of houses for sale leading towards young families buying in town?Just some thoughts.

I'm going to be getting this put into our local Burlington newspaper.  Anybody have any suggestions?Thanks To take much of the guesswork out of your consideration about whether a particular property in the Burlington area is a good investment, you can check on the actual selling price of similar homes in the neighborhood.     Ask Joanna to tell you comparable homes of equivalent square footage, condition, and quality as the home you like. Some sales information, such as selling price, financing terms, and  the transaction dates is available to the public. Joanna will have a record of all recent sales , and can tell you how properties are  priced.  Don't rely on friends or neighbors, who often exaggerate, have misinformation, and confuse asking prices with actual sales prices.    Driving...
