pepperell ma real estate: Pepperell MA - Old Paper Mill Torn Down - 07/19/11 03:10 AM
After sitting vacant for many years and in very poor condition, the old paper mill, sited on approximately 12 acres in downtown Pepperell, MA, has been torn down.  Quite a few proposals have been set forth over the years to develop the site but today's economy has made it a difficult proposition.  In hopes of making the site more desirable to investors, the extensive mill site has been reduced to a pile of rubble. 
Overlooking the Nashua river and just below a dam on the other side of Main street, the first paper mill was established around 1834 and the Pepperell Paper Company was the final successor to … (0 comments)

Pepperell, MA Farmers' Market - 2011
              
One of the things that I like about Pepperell, MA is their rich history as an agricultural community. In 2007, the Pepperell Agricultural Board along with the Prescott Grange started the Pepperell Farmers' Market as a place for local farms to sell their wares.  A large variety of fresh picked produce can be found including heirloom tomatoes, sweet corn, greens and lettuces, fresh herbs, blueberries and apples.  You can also find grass fed beef, local eggs, honey, local cheeses, fresh baked bagels, fresh baked breads and scones.  Several local artisans also attend the … (0 comments)

pepperell ma real estate: Is Market Recovery Possible? The Elimination of the Mortgage Interest Deduction - 07/22/10 09:23 AM
Is Market Recovery Possible? The Elimination of the Mortgage Interest Deduction 
Lately, I've read a few articles about the possibility of reducing or eliminating the mortgage interest deduction.  What next? I'm thinking... How can the nation ever expect to recover?
The tax credit stimulus was a nice short-term success but since then, sales of existing homes have decreased and new home sales are at the lowest level they've been in about 50 years. On the upside, the tax credit stimulus helped move foreclosed property, improve bank balance sheets and increase buyer confidence about purchasing a home. Also, of great importance … (0 comments)

pepperell ma real estate: Are You a Home Buyer and Unfamiliar with Septic Systems? - 07/15/10 07:48 AM
Are You a Home Buyer and Unfamiliar with Septic Systems?
Sometimes when I show buyers property serviced by an on-site septic system, they are unfamiliar with what a septic system is and how it works.  So, I thought I'd take a moment to provide a basic explanation of how a septic system functions.
WHAT IS A SEPTIC SYSTEM? 
A septic system is designed to condition untreated liquid household waste (sewage) so that it can be dispersed and percolated into the subsoil.
SEPTIC TANK FUNCTION
The septic tank is the first step in the process.  Without it, the untreated sewage would … (2 comments)

pepperell ma real estate: Unemployed Need Not Apply - 06/18/10 10:32 AM
Yesterday, I was on the Yahoo Home page and an article titled "Out-of-work job applicants told unemployed need not apply" caught my eye.  The article references a growing trend of employers who will only interview candidates who are currently employed.  According to the article, some job postings include restrictions such as "unemployed candidates will not be considered" or "must be currently employed." What??? Can this be for real??? 
The thought process of companies not hiring "out of work job applicants" seems to be that they believe the job-seeker must've been laid off due to performance issues.  While I would agree that some … (6 comments)

Pepperell MA Home Seller: What you Need to Know about Hazardous Waste
Attention Pepperell MA Home Sellers! As you prepare to market and sell your home, one item often overlooked is the "chemical stuff" that you store in your basement and garage otherwise known as Household Hazardous Waste (HHW).  Often times, Sellers try to leave these items behind and Buyers are not pleased when they conduct a walk through prior to sale and see Household Hazardous Waste items in the basement or garage. On occasion, this can hold up the sale as the seller scrambles to remove the household hazardous waste items.

pepperell ma real estate: What is that Smell? Prepare Your Home for Sale - 04/12/10 08:08 AM
What is that Smell? PrepareYour Home for Sale
"What is that Smell?" asks the Buyer.  Whether it's a good smell or a bad smell, too much of either is a bad thing when it comes to selling your home.  Buyers will focus on the odor in a house and not focus on more important details about the property.  Buyers tend to label houses in order to help them remember salient points about the property.  Do your want your house to be remembered as "ash tray house" or "cat pee house"? I don't think so!
Visual and sensory presentation is vitally important … (4 comments)
