hopkinton ma real estate: Selling Your Home This Winter Can Yield Advantages - 11/12/13 01:43 PM
 When you step outside and feel a crisp chill in the air, you know it: winter is on the way. If events have so ordered themselves that you find yourself selling your home in during the winter months, you’re probably aware that it is not the preferred real estate season.

hopkinton ma real estate: Avoid A Low Home Appraisal - 11/10/13 05:59 AM
A house needs to be sold three times when it is on the market. First it needs to be sold to other agents so they will want to show and sell the home. Second it needs to be sold to buyers and lastly to the appraiser. Even if the buyer is willing to pay a certain price for a home they usually need a mortgage.
