So what does all this mean? Well, if you're looking for a home in East Bridgewater, you can probably find a bargain. Still, lowball offers won't cut it in a market like this. Sellers aren't in control of the market either, so both buyers & sellers should be reasonable when negotiating.

You can still buy a home with no money down with a VA Loan or with a USDA Rural Development Home Loan. With the FHA Mortgage program, you can purchase a home with as little as 3.5% down. With a MassHousing loan, you can purchase a home with as little as 3.0% down. When you're ready to buy a home, find out how much house you can afford to buy in East Bridgewater or in the surrounding area.
