Metrowest 3rd Quarter single family sales report - 10/30/07 06:12 PM
This is the sales activity comparing 3rd qtr 2007 vs 3rd qtr 2006 The results are mixed, however its interesting the total number of sold homes is up from 2006. The days on market is up and the median price is down as we expected. The good news is homes are still selling and buyers are still buying. For a move up or 1st time buyer this is a fantastic time to buy. If you would like a more detailed analysis as it relates to your circumstances pleas contact me either at 508 435-8786 or email email@example.com.

Framingham single family market snapshot - 10/26/07 06:20 AM
Framingham Single family market snapshot Framingham10/22/07 I was curious what segment of the market was more active. Where are buyers coming from and what Price range. Looking at the MLS statistics heres what I found. active listings total - 304 homes . On deposit 48 Homes= an 9 month supply. On deposit as opposed to solds gives me a better picture of whats happening over the past 45 days. Of these 48 homes 42 are under $500,000. and 4 are in the $500's, 2 in the $600's, 1 in the $1.5 million. It seems as though the under $500,000 home market is the most active. If you are interested in a detailed report please contact me (0 comments)

This is THE best time to buy a home!!! - 10/17/07 11:13 AM
Most people who have made money in the stock market follow the principle of buying low and selling high. In the housing market, it is often profitable to buy when people are selling...and sell when people are buying. If housing prices are off then it is a GREAT time to buy! But you have to stop the gloom and doom and educate yourself to the facts in your community. I have provided many market conditions reports on these pages detiling sales activity comparisons of 2005/2006/2007. If you were thinking of buying a new home but were dissuaded by all the media (1 comments)

Active Rain- Collective attitude - 10/08/07 06:55 PM
I have to say ever since joining AR, I am impressed with the overall attitude of the Realtors in this community. The posts talk about current market conditions which are trying. 99.5 % of what I read here is about opportunity and making lemonade out of lemons. Its very inspiring to here story's and ideas which encourage stepping up and make it happen attitude. I have been in real estate for 22 years and seen it all recession and boom. But unlike today with blogging and the AR community, you never knew what everyone else was thinking or doing. This is (12 comments)

(0 comments)
That was the headline in todays Metrowest Homes pullout real estate magazine. It has been my observation that a majority ( maybe 80-90%) of FSBO's end up listing with a realtor anyway, even in a hot market. Now that its much more competitive to find a buyer, perhaps they are realizing they need an experienced professional to give them good advice and a real "marketing plan" of action. (2 comments)
