Late last year, I was given the welcome task of helping my buyer clients in their search for a historic and distinct home on the . A historic home that was either renovated OR had potential to be renovated, BUT also needed to be close to: 1. a bustling town center 2. the commuter rail 3. some “slice of nature”. The combination of classic New England colonial charm with a modern flair has been a staple of our local market for decades, and is a criteria that many local buyers have on their wish list. Finding that in a location that fits their commuting, social needs and outdoor wish list wouldn’t be easy, but: challenge accepted!
North of Boston Homes Sales
It's not often that a large contemporary home pops up on the market on the North Shore of Massachusetts, where Colonials, Capes & Victorians are most prevalent, especially one that sits on over 8 Acres of land! Being a "loft-lover", I am so very happy to see a home like this hit the market!
What this information will show is that Reading single family homes averaged OVER $300 per square foot - which is the first time this threshold has been broken here in any given year!
There is no better way to welcome and enjoy the hectic time of year than to see the glow of outdoor Christmas lights each night. Brian Higgins, Owner of “Light it Up Electric” stated that prior to setting up a outdoor display, certain safety measures should be followed.
We are over the hallway mark of 2017 by almost two months at this point, and it's no surprise that the condo sales market North of Boston was just as fired up as the single family home sales market.
Here's a quick comparison of condominium sales in 4 towns in the 93 / 95 "split" from Jan 1, 2017 to today: August 21, 2017.
Reading Condo [...]
This single family home at 6 Batchelder Avenue in North Reading is a wonderful 1 bedroom condo-alternative. 1022 Square Feet with nature at your doorstep!.....
Last night I presented some information to new single family homebuyer clients looking North of Boston, targeting towns such as Reading, North Reading, Stoneham, Wilmington, Woburn & Wakefield. Not surprisingly, days on market are quick (the past 2 weeks of offers have an average of 10 days until offer in Reading alone!), and multiple-offers are the norm, which means "over-asking" accepted offers are also the trend.
