Snow MA, have you had enough? Everywhere you look people are either grumbling or holding their secret smile.  It is finally winter here in New England and that usually means snow.  It is serious this year and we have already broken all kinds of records and the white stuff is still coming down.  They talk about the storm of 1978, but we already have more snow on the ground right now than fell during that terrible storm.  Let's put this in perspective.  This year, actually last year during this winter 6 feet of snow fell on Buffalo.  The piddly 3 going on 4 feet is not a match for the violence of that storm. Schools are shut, roads are almost impassable and parents as well as their children are a bit stir crazy.  During this time it is important that you watch out for ice dams forming on ...

Decidedly Dedham; Dedham Pottery; Dedham Luxury Homes Dedham Pottery is a cherished class of antiques, characterized by a distinctive crackle glaze, blue-and-white color scheme, and a frequent motif of rabbits and other animals. Dedham is sometimes called the "mother of towns" because 14 present-day communities were included within its original broad borders. This nformation is gathered from Wikipedia. The most common and recognizable design is a repeating crouching rabbit referred to as "the Dedham rabbit".      The rabbits crouch on the ground with their ears back and in between each rabbit stands a vegetable stalk which a former workman has claimed to be a brussel sprout(7). There are generally 10 rabbits in total and are spaced out evenly in a clockwise rotation. The Dedham rabbit d...

A Place called Contentment, Dedham, MA. Wikipedia, reports, At the first public meeting on August 15, 1636, eighteen men signed the town covenant. They swore that they would "in the fear and reverence of our Almighty God, mutually and severally promise amongst ourselves and each to profess and practice one truth according to that most perfect rule, the foundation whereof is ever lasting love." Settled in 1635 by people from Roxbury and Watertown, Dedham was incorporated in 1636. It became the county seat of Norfolk County when the county formed on March 26, 1793. When the Town was originally incorporated, the residents wanted to name it Contentment. The Massachusetts General Court overruled them and named the town after Dedham, Essex in England, where some of the original inhabitants we...

Dedham Contemporary; Dedham History. Contemporary homes are built for independent people. People who care about how things look and work and don't need tradition to dictate.  A Colonial is a wonderful architecture and families have loved it for years, but people who know and like contemporary homes are looking for something different.  They are looking for ways to live in their space as part of the larger space. They are looking for views that are unseen and yet open.  They want the function of the design to not impede flow of the space. They want that space to fit into it's space around it like a glove.

Michael MahoneyRemax Executive | 617-980-9025The NAR (National Association of Realtors) put out an article stating that the market is still plagued by the inventory crunch. Understand that this was at a national level. I wanted to take time to reflect on their article and see if this was true in Dedham, MA.

Competition for homes in the greater Boston area  has been fierce this spring.  Very few homes and many buyers has translated into constant bidding wars with only those willing to spend over asking price winning the home.                                                                                                                                                                                          I have been working with a very nice young couple who were open-minded regarding the buying process. Fortunately for both of us, I spent alot of time educating them, showing them sold data for months prior to ever going to see the first home.  I think that really is the key to not wasting each other's time. A buyer who receives sold data from their buyer agent via email for a few months ...

Welcome to this edition of The Tuesday wake up Message...I hope everyone enjoyed the Mother's Day Weekend!  Let's start out this week taking a few minutes to examine where we are in both our personal and business lives.  Do we have a stated purpose for both?  Do we have a plan to achieve the end result desired?  Are we working each and every day on the actions that our plan calls for?  Are we happy? Do we need to make some changes or work a little harder or smarter to achieve our goals?  Do we believe that we control where we end up?  Are we adding equity to our personal brand?  Are we allowing negative people or thoughts to influence us?   Let us always remember that we have total control over 1 thing - OURSELVES.  We decide what we will or will not do.  We have control over what thou...

Dedham2013SingleFamilyHousingReport shows 402 total properties involved in the 2013 housing market.  As always having your house priced correctly gets you a faster sale with more people through the house and a quicker close.  The current active homes have been on the market for 188 days. This is too long for an average in this community. The List price is double what the average Sale price is.  No two houses are alike and looking at averages is just that–the average.  Each home has it’s own unique Market Value.  Market Value is not what the Seller thinks is a good price, or the Agent who is agreeing with the Seller to get the listing is a good price, but what the Buyer is willing to pay for the property.  Bridging this gap is the work of a true professional.
