These homes withdrawn from the market or expired are those listings that suffered from too high a price for the property or an agent who does not know how to get as many people looking at the property and interested in it to make an offer. These issues are correctable when you work with a professional who can guide you through the process and has a proven record of getting the most for his properties.

Area SqFt: 4,741 Median List $: $1,440,000 Median List $/SqFt: $323 Median DOM: 103 The 103 Days on Market could be a reflection of the holidays, that is a long time for a good market.

Not all clients are created equal; Hindsight is always crystal clear.

Not all clients are created equal; Hindsight is always crystal clear. “What we have here is a failure to communicate,” a line from Cool Hand Luke, a movie from 1967 starring Paul Newman. Communications, in real estate, is most often the reason for there to be no meeting of the minds. Without  meeting of the minds, there is no agreement.

I met the whole family in the living room of their mother who had lived in the house for many years. Mother was going to join Daughter in her home, they were selling the original home  and it went on the market.


In my first 128 days I brought the same buyer back twice with an offer of $615,000 and $10,000 back at closing, effectively $605,000.  Because I was unable to explain the value of this offer in a way that the Seller would accept the offer that is best for them I failed. What I learned it is not just that facts that are important, it is the manner in which the facts are shared.

In real estate people don’t always make rational decisions, it is often based on emotion.  Once the emotion is right, then the Buyer looks for data to support that decision.  The job of a good agent is to provide all the necessary information so the Seller can make the best decision for them. That is al. I feel sorry these people lost $30,000 and almost another year, we have all moved on. I, for certain, learned with this one. The trick to being successful is not making the same mistakes twice.

Not all clients are created equal; Hindsight is always crystal clear. If your mind is focused on providing people with their best options the best you can. Learn along the way. Always meet in person, never over the phone, if your client is a physician, only their job is life and death, not yours.Not all clients are created equal; Hindsight is always crystal clear.

Milton MA 02186 great real estate opportunities for buyers


Milton MA 02186 great real estate opportunities for buyers and for sellers. Compared to surrounding towns Milton MA real estate has been strong. Compared to most of the surround suburbs of Boston Milton over the last few years has had significant equity growth.  While that trend has slowed in this past month it does not negate the existing growth.  Buying a home is a big investment which can pay big rewards should you buy correctly.  It is often said that you make your money when you buy your house, not when you sell it.  Simply stated you do not want to buy the most expensive house on the block. What you want is a good house in a good neighborhood that is on the cusp of change.  Neighborhood changes come in cycles.  When you see one sold sign go up on the block you can assume there will be a couple of more.


Buying a great home is a process.  It is about the location, the price and the condition and it is about affordability and the potential for growing your equity.  Quite often the people who move into a block at the same time will be considering moving at the same time.  Armed with this kind of deeper understanding of the process makes for a savvy search.  Working with a professional is always a bonus.  It is true you can find a great deal of information here on the interweb and a lot of it is true.  What a professional brings to the table is a deeper understanding of what is true and what is factual.


187 Brook Rd Milton MA 02186 is a four bedroom with several bonus rooms for growth. The yard is flat and larger than it’s neighbors.  The kitchen was redone several years ago and the floors were refinished this year.  Walls were repainted and this is a move in ready home.  This is a Milton MA 02186 great real estate opportunities for buyers
