Westwood, MA 02090 lifestyle and neighborhoods provide ample choice this fall. There are 38 Active listings on MLSPIN at this writing that range in price from $559,000 up to $4,449,000.

If one looks at statistics as averages, the average size of the homes in Westwood is over 4,000 square feet. Not likely, is my thought. Statistics are altered each and every day with the activity of that day. If something new comes on, or something gets sold and goes off all the other statistics are skewed by that. This is one of the reasons why a Zillow is untrustworthy in it’s analysis.

Kids grow up playing in the street or in each others yards and pools, because they can in this safe, and centrally located neighborhood, blending newer construction into an already beautiful, and upcoming neighborhood.

“About 72% of aspiring millennial buyers said they’re waiting because they can’t afford to buy…”The article also explained that 29% of millennials believe their credit scores are too low to buy.The problem here is the fact that they think they will be denied a mortgage is keeping them from even attempting to apply.

“You can be anything you want, honey.” She said it with such nonchalance and conviction, if that is at all possible, that I didn’t doubt it. Not then, it would take me several years before I really understood that people lie. They lie for many reasons. They lie because they like you, they lie because they hate you, they lie because they just don’t care either way. By then I was a Realtor® and that anything I can be ended up being a real estate agent.
There was such power for me back then as a young boy sitting at the kitchen table with my mother making my favorite breakfast. It was my birthday and as one of my presents I was being taught to make my favorite breakfast, pancakes. The flour, baking soda, eggs, milk and sugar all went into a bowl that day and I was so happy. I didn’t realize until much later that that this loving gesture of sharing her skill to teach me how to make my favorite meal was the last breakfast she would ever make for me. I thought it was all about me that beautiful June morning and it just wasn’t, it never was. It was about her, but more on that later.
There are significant differences between backing powder and baking soda I found out later. They both contain sodium bicarbonate and are used for very different purposes. That I learned later too. At this point in my life I think you learn more from experience than from trusting any person you consider an unimpeachable source of information and knowledge. Maybe that is why I ended up being a real estate professional. What seems easy is never easy. What seems like good and solid information can be disputed. What works does not mean something else won’t work better. I just wanted pancakes. The pain of lies and purposeful misinformation I grew comfortable with through the first several years of my career.
