Berkley MA Opinions

Answer
Berkley...like most towns works for many people. What would be helpful is to understand things like; where you work, where is your family, what are your interests etc - then determine if this is a good fit.  Our office is in Mansfield and I live in Norton - so feel free to contact me!

How important is curb appeal?

Answer
You have to price a home to reflect it's strengths and weaknesses.  If you are using an agent and putting it in MLS... the "write up and pictures" could show off it's strengths.  On the for sale sign - there is usually the ability to add riders like; huge back yard, lot size etc.  Or add a holder to the for sale sign... for flyers with pictures, that a drive by could stop and pick up.Proper; Location, Condition and Price sell homes!Good Luck

Sellers have accepted a purchase offer with a date to close with the phrase, "on or about" .

Answer
Most of the answers seem appropriate...my advise is to contact your attorney.  Since you have a signed contract, they should be the best to guide you through the next steps. You want to do things in a manner to not jeopardize your deposits.Best of Luck!

Should I withdraw my offer?

Answer
Based on my own personal experience only, your instincts are probably correct.  If this house works for you, give them a deadline and push for a response. Good luck!

Lots of View but No Foot Traffic

Answer
Although I have not seen your property to give you a complete answer...if you are getting that amount of hits and only 1 showing your are probably overpriced.  The old standard;"Location, Condition and Price"still simplifies the challenge. Consider adjusting the price accordingly and start converting those hits into offers!Best of Luck

how does a short sale work?

Answer
Linda is correct.  An additional item a buyer needs to understand is that when the lender finally reviews the short sale - they may want to renegotiate the deal! So informed buyers, with patience, may prevail in obtaining a home at a discount...

Should I sell and buy at the same time or should I sell, then rent while I find a home to buy?

Answer
I would recommend that you list your condo and then pick the areas that you would like to keep a close pulse on the market.  If you have owned your condo 5 years or more, you will be able to take advantage of the $6500 tax credit.  I would work on getting your condo ready to show and would meet with a stager so that in the next 6 weeks during the holidays you can clean out and get it ready the market after the 1st of the year.You can use the same Realtor to sell and to purchase.  The seller's agent would work to get you the most for your condo and the same agent would then become your buyer's agent to try and get you the most home for the money.  Pick someone that is fulltime and works primarily in the area that you currently live and knows the market where you want to look.
