newton luxury home: The Needle in the Haystack, Newton Luxury Home - 04/16/15 01:16 AM
The Needle in the Haystack, Newton Luxury Home. With all the inventory of luxury properties available right now in Newton it takes some focus to pull out the wheat from the chaff. In many areas there is not enough inventory on the market right now, but this is not the case with Newton luxury homes. There is 9 months of listings with the average market being 6 months. This makes the Newton Luxury real estate market a Buyers market. Sounds good for the buyers, right? Well it is, but this comes with the caveat that you can get a great deal, … (0 comments)

newton luxury home: Newton MA Luxury House Options - 03/27/15 08:29 PM
Newton MA Luxury House Options. First let's define luxury as per National Association of Realtors® (NAR) guidelines. Luxury is the top ten percent of the available listings in an MLS area.  Newton's MLS area is MLSPIN out of the Boston area.  Luxury as defined by MLSPIN would be a home in the $880,000 and above range. That would be a very affordable home in Newton and not considered luxury.  If we just take the available listings in Newton to determine what luxury is the price point to get into this select group of homes would be around $2,100,000. So there are … (0 comments)

newton luxury home: Calling to help, or calling to sell - 02/27/15 04:45 AM
Calling to help, or calling to sell, is a question every real estate professional should be asking themselves every time they call, knock, meet or present.  If you are there to sell, you may or may not be successful.  If you are there to help, you have the opportunity to ask questions and understand what the family needs and wants.  The ABC of yesteryears sales techniques are dead and decayed only used by the poorest and slowest of sales professionals.
People want reasons to buy, they do not want to be sold.  So you have to ask yourself, am I calling … (2 comments)

Dear Doctor, your home awaits.  Newton is only 7 miles from downtown Boston and all the fabulous hospitals we offer.   It is even closer to the Fenway where you have several more great hospitals.  One of the reasons Newton is so popular with the medical professionals is that the schools are great and the town is far more diverse than many of the surrounding towns.

Newton MA Luxury Market Report for the last 30 days.  This information is gathered from MLSPin and does not include any for sale by owner information as this is typically a very insignificant portion of the statistics and is always skewed by the quirkiness of these transactions.  Newton continues to be an active market in the luxury category. This is defined by the International Luxury Home Marketing organization as the top ten percent of the market in it's area.  Since Newton has so many nice homes this threshold price is considerably above the Boston Area Luxury property threshold which is slightly … (0 comments)

Newton named #1 city in the US  by 24/7 Wall Street this week. This is no surprise to the large families that live in this wonderful city.  It is something to brag about, but you have to realize that these ratings are based on a variety of criteria that can take out other great cities.  Great schools because this community cares about the schools. While there are other nearby towns that also have great schools, Newton actually has two full high schools that make it onto the best schools in the State each year.
Newton is situated right next to Boston … (2 comments)

A caring more, doing more Realtor is a professional who knows that just getting a listing and putting it on MLS is not near enough.  Having an arsenal of tools that are used to promote a property makes a difference.  At 114 Shorneclife Road in Newton, a luxury Newton home, we are promoting this property using a variety of tools and a lot of attention to detail.  The industry has changed forever and being a Realtor® or a lowly sales agent for many years using the same old methods will just not get the job done.  A care more and doing … (1 comments)
