Another Satisfied Buyer: Congratulations to my clients who closed in June on their purchase of 18 Allison Way in Natick, MA.  These first time home buyers were referred to me by former clients. It's always an honor when  a former client thinks enough of me to recommend me to their friends and coworkers.  These busy professionals were in search of a new or almost-new single family home or condominium in Canton, Sharon or Natick.  Like many of my buyers, they had done their research and narrowed their search down to communities that met their commuting and family needs. They looked at both single family homes and condos, but I felt all along that a condo would best suit their needs.  With zero home-maintenance knowledge or experience, a townhouse-style condo would give them the single-fam...

Manage your email with just one really, (really) cool tool  I'm going to venture a guess that I'm not the only broker in town that has at some point in time, errantly clicked on a button or registered for a free newsletter or white paper only to find that by doing so, I may have given permission to receive daily, weekly and monthly newsletters, summaries, reminders, "recaps" of summaries, "executive summaries" of the recaps... You know what I mean!  But I wonder.  If these companies were to put a stamp on all of this stuff or to actually pay even a penny to the Internet vendor to disseminate each piece of outgoing mail - how much of this stuff do you think they would actually send or how much do you think they think actually is being read.  Conversely, of all the "stuff " that you recei...

If you’re selling your home in the Natick real estate market, you know how important open houses are. An open house gives your agent a chance to show off all your home’s features and potential buyers the opportunity to ask questions and envision themselves living in your home, encouraging them to put an offer on it.  However, to get the most out of open houses, you have to take advantage of the opportunity to show your home in its best light. If you recognize any of these signs, your open houses may not be as successful as they could be. Clutter and Damages are Taking Over Cluttered homes aren’t attractive to buyers. If your home is cluttered and in bad repair, buyers will be turned off and even be so distracted that they don’t value the best features your home has to offer. Start by do...

It might not feel like it quite yet, but spring will be here before we know it. Most homes are naturally more attractive when their yards are lush and green and their landscaping is in full bloom. Here are six easy ways to take advantage of the spring season and increase your home’s curb appeal. Clear out and Cut Back  Before you list your Natick home for sale, clear our winter debris to make your gardens look more attractive. Rake away dead leaves, sticks and remove dead plants. Cut back trees, overgrown plants and shrubs to make them look sharp and polished. Of course, you still want your landscaping to look full, but tame your plants so they look well taken care of. Fill the Garden Once the dead plants are gone and you have trimmed overgrown plants, you can start adding new ones. Bri...

The Natick real estate market is extremely busy, so sellers are opting to hold open houses on Saturdays and Sundays just to accommodate the interest. If you are trying to sell your home, this is excellent news as it means that you’ll most likely get lots of offers and be able to sell your home quickly. When you hold weekend open houses, you’ll also benefit from some extra perks. Accommodating to People who Work During the Week Weekend open houses are easier for people who work 40-hour workweeks to attend. Buyers who have packed schedules and find it hard to tour homes may be able to attend weekend open houses, so you’ll have the chance to show your home to more potential buyers. Weekend open houses also allow buyers to spend some time looking at your home and asking questions, without b...

Buying a home in the Natick real estate market is an exciting step. The more you know about your new home, the better you can take care of it and even prevent costly damage. Here are five things you should know about your home.  Your Furnace needs to be Serviced Regularly  No matter what kind of condition your furnace is in, it needs to be serviced regularly. Experts suggest that you change your filter about four times a year, and even more often if you have pets.  When you have a technician inspect your furnace, you can catch small problems and potential issues before they get out of hand, become more expensive and more damaging. Leaking air ducts is one of the biggest factors that leads to inefficient furnaces, so making sure these are in good repair is also important. Your Home’s Ro...
