A Hamilton MA home buyer should receive a brochure, Home Inspectors Facts for Consumers Sheet, at the time of the signing of the first written contract to purchase. A standard home inspection in Massachusetts is a visual examination of the physical structure and major interior systems of a residential building consisting of one to four dwelling units. It should be understood that there are certain risks inherent in the purchase of property and a home inspection is inherently limited in its scope and depth. The information gained from home inspection conforming to the Massachusetts Home Inspector Standards of Practice may reduce some of those risks, but the home inspection is not intended to provide the client with protection from all of the risks involved.

Stronger than expected data and positive stock movements pressured rates. The Institute for Supply Management (ISM), factory orders, weekly jobless claims, and employment report all came in stronger than expected. The personal income and outlays data was the only release that was even near expectations. Signs of recovery in the economy with continued record debt had many traders concerned about inflation implications. Inflation erodes the value of fixed income securities. For the week interes...

It is time to put an end to the Proposition 2 1/2 overrides in Hamilton and Wenham, Massachusetts. When Prop 2 1/2 was enacted in 1980 it had provisions to allow towns to pass overrides, but those overrides were intended for emergency purposes. Overrides were not intended to be used to subsidize school funding on an annual basis as has become the norm in our two towns. If override supporters in Hamilton and Wenham believe that "emergencies" have existed in our towns for 10 out of the past 11 years, then the answer lies with a broken system that obviously has not and can not be fixed by simply throwing more money at it. Here's a little something that unfortunately many of our citizens do not realize: Each override is not one-time cost event. Each override is added to the basis of our ta...

A large, and growing group of residents from the Massachusetts towns of Hamilton and Wenham have recently formed a Political Action Committee under the name ENOUGH IS ENOUGH (EIE). Six weeks before the town elections in Hamilton and Wenham in May 2008, Jim Kent, a Hamilton resident, wrote a letter to the editors of the Hamilton/Wenham Chronical and the Salem News asking for citizen participation in a group aimed at defeating the $1.8 million school funding override.   A group got together and decided to call themselves "Enough is Enough", a battle cry to stop the budget busting pending override. It was an exciting six weeks, with members walking the streets talking to neighbors, volunteers making signs, helping elders with absentee ballots, writing letters to the editor and distributing...

The absorption rate is the rate of sale per month stated as a percentage. For Example, if the absorption rate is 8%, then 8 out of 100 properties for sale sold that month.This report shows the underlying strength of the market by comparing the percentage of "For Sale Properties" that sold in the prior period to the current period. This report detects imbalances between the supply and demand for real estate. The absorption rate is affected by the: number of units that sold and the number of units for sale. If the absorption rate is rising, the market demand for real estate is improving and if it is falling, the market demand is deteriorating. Source IMAX Web Solutions, RE/MAX Advantage.

Come home to Hamilton.For additional information a...
