century 21 commonwealth: Preparing your House for Sale by Mary Crane, Realtor. - 03/02/15 08:23 PM
"Buyers want to see your house, not your stuff."  
When buyers look at your home, you want them to focus on the features and upgrades.  You don't want to distract them with items that might offend or puzzle them.  It's amazing how many times we show homes and the buyers will refer to one as "the one with the guns" or the "one with the pictures".  Granted, you're still living in the home but it's time to start packing up your personal items.  In many ways, packing is an important step in moving on with your life.

century 21 commonwealth: Why Greater Boston rents won't ever go down by Mary Crane, Realtor - 01/17/14 10:23 PM
The Boston area is already one of the most expensive places in the country to rent an apartment or buy a condo.
But those sky-high rents and prices are set to only go higher given a looming apartment and condo crunch.
We need as many as 435,000 new apartments, condos and homes here in the Boston area over the next quarter century to meet demand and ensure the local economy keeps growing robustly, the Metropolitan Area Planning Council finds in a new report out this morning.
That's enough new units to house the entire city of Boston, population 636,479, and then some.That's enough new … (2 comments)

century 21 commonwealth: Great News for New Construction Buyers by Mary Crane, Realtor - 01/07/14 10:40 PM
On Christmas Eve, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) reported a 10 basis point decline in mortgage interest rates for the month of November.  Data from FHFA’s Monthly Interest Rate Survey(MIRS) cover conventional single-family mortgages and distinguish whether the loans are for the purchase of new or existing homes.  In October, rates on existing home loans declined while rates on new home loans stubbornly continued to inch up.   But in November, rates on both types of loans declined.  In particular, the November data show a 6 basis point decline in the average contract interest rate on loans to purchase newly-built homes, from 4.32 to 4.26 … (2 comments)

century 21 commonwealth: Where are Massachusetts Real Estate Prices headed in 2014? - 12/14/13 11:04 PM
If you think Massachusetts home prices are high now,  just wait until next year!
The median sale price of Massachusetts homes could hit $355,000 next year, up from just under $325,000 during the first ten months of 2013, Tim Warren, chief executive of The Warren Group, predicts in this Globe piece.
So what's the big deal? Well that would actually bring local home prices back to levels not seen since 2005, during the peak of the housing bubble.
As you may or may not recall, 2005 was a great year to sell a house, but not so much to buy one.
