A Boxford MA home buyer should receive a brochure, Home Inspectors Facts for Consumers Sheet, at the time of the signing of the first written contract to purchase. A standard home inspection in Massachusetts is a visual examination of the physical structure and major interior systems of a residential building consisting of one to four dwelling units. It should be understood that there are certain risks inherent in the purchase of property and a home inspection is inherently limited in its scope and depth. The information gained from home inspection conforming to the Massachusetts Home Inspector Standards of Practice may reduce some of those risks, but the home inspection is not intended to provide the client with protection from all of the risks involved.

With a two-acre lot minimum and only 7 percent of its land zoned for commercial use, Boxford, Massachusetts has crushed any thoughts of urbanization. An April 29, 2007 profile in The Boston Globe chronicles the town's efforts to maintain its small-town roots and exclusive feel."And to preserve the rural look of the town, nearly every street is officially considered a scenic road and town rules require homeowners to seek approval before they can dislodge a rock wall or a tree." "It has more than 1,000 acres of open space -- preserved with the help of residents by the Boxford Trails Association with the Boxford Open Land Trust. Green space includes Boxford State Forest, and residents also have access to Stiles Pond, a 60-acre freshwater pond."As of May 5, 2007, Boxford had 87 properties l...

 Settled by Europeans in the early 1600's, this farming community for centuries has been just that, a small rural community tucked away in the northern section of Essex County. Strong willed by the  character of the residents, Boxford has been one community set on staying "free and clear" from urbanization. Town government has maintained a 2 acre minimum size lot for residential property while working hard to maintain a small commercial base representing 7% of all land with a commercial assessment. A small population of 8200 with a median house price of $620,000.00 makes Boxford an ideal community for privacy as it is surrounded by parcels owned by  the Boxford Open Land Trust, Boxford Trails Association and green space of the Boxford State Forest.
