Know your Housing Market

It’s nearly impossible to get through the week while not being exposed to some realty news. Open the paper and you’ll notice an item on the housing market. On the TV, you’ll be see reportings of housing costs on the increase.

It's confusing, particularly if you’ve been considering a move - now or sometime in the near future.

Looking for an easy-to-understand rationalization of what’s happening in your realty market and opportunities out there for you.

You see, the US property market - that is commonly featured in newspapers and on TV - doesn’t essentially mirror what’s happening in our area.

Yet, it’s the local market conditions that have an effected us most.

Go to Market Report to setup your own weekly value summary of your area... It's another Free at SouthShoreSearch.com

The Time to Contact your Realty Agent

If you’re like me, we make a doctor’s appointment when you’re feeling ill or a health question. You might also visit your family health care provider for an annual check-up. In fact, asking your doctor about anything health-related is a proactive idea.

The same is true when it comes to your realty agent.

Many folks only call their agent when they’re planning on selling their home or buying a new property. While that’s a priority reason to talk with us, it’s not the only reason.

There are many great reasons for you to give us a call at Real Estate Door. 

For example:

- If you have a question about the South Shore real estate market. (This could be totally different from what you hear on the TV or radio programs about the US market.)

- If you want to get an idea of what properties are currently selling for in your neighborhood.

- If you want to have current market value report on your home.

- What about wanting value reports on homes in neighborhoods you’re looking to buy into.

- If you’re in the beginning stages of thinking about moving, but you need advice from us on the right time.

Don’t hesitate to contact with any real estate related question or need some advice about the real estate market. 

Call or Text anytime at 781-499-6634.

Needs and Wants for your Home Search

What do you need in your next home? 

You should take the time to write down your WANTS and NEEDS to help you further define your search. Your NEEDS could be, having to have four bedrooms, to accommodate your family. Your WANTS are part of your wish-list... it would be nice to have a wood-burning fireplace and a finished family room in the lower level.

Of course home features are important. Searching for your next dream home on the South Shore will be more than just features. It's also about the surrounding community. I don't think you'll enjoy your property if you have a long congested commute to and from work ever day... The long-drive will take its toll on you and your family over time.

When searching for a new home, please consider the follow:

  • Your Job -  How far are you from your workplace? Driving or public transportation?
  • Your Children - Are you close to parks and playgrounds? And do you feel it's a safe area?
  • Local Schools - How's the education and sports programs? Would your Children be walking to school or riding a bus?
  • Your Neighbors - How does the community feel to you? Are folks friendly and social?
  • Amenities/Shopping - How far is the food markets and the pharmacy?
  • Activities - Is the workout gym, golf course and movie cinema close to home?

Our REALTOR® team can help you with all of these questions. Connect with us today.
