canton ma real estate: Will You Wait or Get in the Game? - 05/27/14 09:17 AM
We are still seeing a lack of inventory here in the Canton MA real estate market - and in the surrounding communities.  Well-priced homes in good condition are selling quickly, with homes going off-market as quickly as they are coming on.  
Buyers today are having to make a decision. Are they willing to move quickly to purchase a home or do they want to wait?
Either route has its risks and benefits. 
Moving quickly means that you can beat out other buyers considering an offer on the home.  However, you may need to put in a full priced offer and … (3 comments)
