Want Your Home Featured Here?

Posted by Justin Rollo February 27, 2014 10:56 PM

Recently we posted an article about a new listing we had at in South Boston. The listing was for an updated 2 bedroom, 1 bath condo. It was the first time we had used this blog as an outlet for listings and the results were stunning.


How Much is a Bedroom Worth in Boston?

Posted by Justin Rollo February 25, 2014 03:37 PM

Have you ever wondered what the difference in pricing is between a 1 bedroom and a 2 bedroom condo? What about upgrading from a 2 bedroom to a 3 bedroom unit? Today we've tried to answer this question by breaking down the average condo sale prices in and around Boston in the past 12 months. We are using a fairly simple methodology here and excluding all other factors except number of bedrooms. So condition, square footage, and number of bathrooms are not accounted for here.

The South Boston Market Needs Your Home!

Posted by Justin Rollo February 13, 2014 11:38 AM

As I'm sure you know Low Inventory has been the buzzword in the real estate industry for the last year. South Boston is no different and despite a surge of new listings last fall the market cannot keep up with buyer demand. Long story short, South Boston's real estate market needs your home!


Rethink Your Monthly Budget with the City of Boston Residential Tax Exemption

Posted by Justin Rollo February 10, 2014 01:06 PM

When I first speak to buyers I go over a myriad of things, most important of which is monthly budget. We will connect with their lender and run numbers for their mortgage and principal. We'll then end up adding on our property taxes, home insurance estimates and PMI (if needed) to come up with their total cost and buying power. What many folks don't consider is the huge difference that property tax rates can make on your monthly budget. By utilizing the City of Boston Residential Tax Exemption you can significantly lower your monthly payments.


Somerville vs. South Boston

Posted by Justin Rollo February 7, 2014 12:34 AM

2013 was a whirlwind for the local real estate market and two areas in particular have been extremely hot for both development and resale. Both Somerville and South Boston have seen meteoric rises in prices in the past two years as builders have continued to gobble up inventory and turn it back over as condos. The charts below offer a glimpse of both markets in the past 8 years and show an eerily similar track record in terms of both average sale price and days on market.


A January Wedding in Jackson

The majority of the time this blog acts as a conveyance for both myself and other writers to educate and update you, the reader, on everything real estate. We talk about list prices, mortgages, appraisals, and more. In the life of this blog there will be a select few times where we veer off of this path to discuss something else. Today is one of those times. Two weeks ago this Saturday I trekked up to New Hampshire with friends, family and a special lady to get hitched. The stories, the fun, and the dances will remain close to the vest; however, as someone in the service industry I feel obligated to recognize folks that went above and beyond on our special weekend.
