It’s a great time to buy because there are still quite a few Greater Boston & North Shore homes for sale now and interest rates have continued to stay low. Whether it’s your first time purchasing real estate or you’re a seasoned professional, here are a few tips to make shopping for a new house more pleasurable.

Searching through all of the available real estate can be mind-boggling. Find a professional real estate agent to wade through the Greater Boston & North Shore homes for sale and find one that meet your family and financial needs.

Start Looking Now

Finding the perfect house can take months, especially if you’re looking in a competitive market. If you’re looking at getting a good deal on a foreclosure or short sale, then these transactions can take even longer because you’re waiting on the bank to make the final call. Try to be patient. The more thorough you are in your search, the happier you’ll be in the long term.

Don’t Settle for the First Place You See

Searching for a house can be extremely emotional. If you think you’ve found the one, then take a step back, consult your real estate agent and go over your housing checklist one last time before placing a bid.

Weigh the Pros and Cons

Almost any property will need a few improvements. Even newly constructed houses usually need improvements like landscaping. Sellers are savvier now about how to make cosmetic changes to catch a buyer’s eye, so look carefully. There will still be things you want to change. Weigh the difference between the cost of those repairs and the sale price. If you really want a house even though it’s going to take a lot of work, place your bid accordingly.

Make Sure Your Financing is in Order

Having financing done in advance makes your job of buying Greater Boston & North Shore homes for sale much easier because you’ll know how much you can afford. Save up a down payment and then talk with your bank and get pre-approved for a loan. Your loan officer can also help you determine what your monthly payments will be based on how much money you borrow.

    Marc put a lot of work into his marketing which got great results! He was always helpful during the whole process from start to finish. I met Marc 3 years ago when I was going to sell and then decided not to. Marc kept in contact until I finally decided to put my house on the market this April. He never once was pushy, he just checked in whether it was on me, my parents, or my husband. Thanks Marc for all your help!

    From the first time I met Marc I enjoyed working with him. I highly, and happily, recommend Marc for anyone looking to sell or buy a property. I was very comfortable working with Marc. He is very personable, professional, patient, easy to work with, high skilled, motivated, responsive, organized, always willing to help, and always willing to go the extra mile for you. And Marc's broader support team were also pleasant and efficient to work. As the saying goes "the proof is in the pudding", and the pudding for me was the fact that Marc had an offer in front of me on the day before the first Open House was to be held. And that offer was so good I ended up accepting it (10% above asking price and 4% above my desired bottomline sale price. 😁 If you choose Marc as your Real Estate professional, when all is said and done I think you'll be happy you did!!

    Marc’s Knowledge of the the space and timing in the market was incredible to watch unfold. He not only hired solid contractors but also guided them in what the modern consumer wants / needs in their home. He made sure to keep them in line and within budget. Not only did he assist me in that overwhelming process but he had a stager set in place & 60 people showing up at my open house for 3 days in a row. He knows how to market his projects and himself incredibly. Doesn’t hurt that he got me over asking and closed in less than 30 days!
