    Get an Accurate Price for Your Boston Condo or Home

    Do you know what your Boston condo or single family home is worth?

    There are many factors that go into pricing. They include such considerations as the condition of a property, how good the common areas look, how well the home “shows,” the condo association’s financial state, where on the block the home is located, where in the building it is located, what percentage of the building is owner-occupied, what improvements or repairs have been made, what repairs may be coming up, how much light there is, and what the parking options are.

    We've all seen ads for instant home price workups in our Facebook feeds. The problem is that the algorithm doing the pricing of your Boston home or condo doesn't know about the factors noted above, and just as importantly, doesn't have a "gut feel" based on over 30 years of experience.

    I can't emphasize enough how important it is to price your Boston home or condo accurately from the start. I believe that pricing is one of the most critical decisions you can make regarding the sale of your home. Naturally, you don't want to price your property too low. Even in the current market, however, overpricing can have serious consequences. 

    The beginning of the marketing period is when your home or condo will attract the greatest number of motivated buyers. The goal is to capitalize on that. Time is not your friend as a seller.

    Get an accurate price for your home. And I don't mean one of those automatic instant reports with bogus comparables and a bogus price. This is done by me, a Realtor with over 30 years of success and expertise, and hundreds of property sales. 

    Find out what your home is worth

    I look forward to helping you achieve your real estate goals. 

    Joe

        Boston's North End Offers a Unique Living Experience

        Boston's North End still has a traditional old Italian-European vibe to it. Not only are there loads of well-loved restaurants, but there are many old-school meat, produce, and cheese shops, making it a gastronome's delight. Positioned at the very northern tip of downtown Boston, the North End is surrounded by waterfront.

        On the eastern side are historic wharves that have become residential, including Battery Wharf, a newly constructed luxury condominium project, and several older ones. At the Southwestern edge of the neighborhood is the Rose Kennedy Greenway, a beautiful linear park brimming with landscaped gardens, art, fountains, a carousel, food trucks, and open air beer and wine gardens.

        North End real estate is characterized by brick rowhouses, many of which have been converted into condominiums. Unlike the South End and Back Bay rowhouses, these were not originally created as single family houses. They were mostly first constructed in the late 18th and early 19th century as apartments, and later converted into condos.

        The North End is reachable by the Orange Line and Green Line North Station and Haymarket stops. There's an exit off I-93 that gets you right into the North End as well. It is just a few minutes by car to Logan Airport, Route 1, I-93, and I-95. And it's an easy walk to the financial district, the waterfront, and The Boston Garden.

        If the North End sounds like a neighborhood you might like to consider living in, here's where you can conduct searches for North End single family homes or for condos for sale. 

        If you have any questions about buying or selling Boston area real estate, please feel free to get in touch! I'd love to hear from you. I'm reachable at 617-584-9790 and joe.wolvek@bostonrealtyweb.com.

                  November Outlook in Boston Real Estate

                  Surprise! You can find November daisies amidst the fall color on Commonwealth Avenue in the Back Bay!

                  The fall Boston real estate market continues to be very active, with median prices holding steady. Buyer competition on many areas is still intense. How can you as a seller give yourself the opportunity to sell above asking price with a low number of days on market? (Hint: It isnt about baking cookies for the open house) Read more.
