Another Satisfied Buyer: Congratulations to my client who closed in August on his purchase of 38 Irving Street in Norwood MA   This client came to me from a first time home buyer class I had taught in early spring. Like many of my buyers, he had spent a fair amount of time in advance preparing to purchase his first home. Educated buyers are the best and have the best chance of a successful home purchase. This first time home buyer was looking for a house in the Canton MA area.  We targeted Canton, Norwood and Walpole as the main search areas.  Like the other spring and summer 2015 home buyers, this buyer encountered limited inventory and increasing prices. We saw this home right after it had come on the market.  An updated older home, this house had the space, condition and location he ...

The author Brigitte von Weiss of VON WEISS LAW OFFICE is an Easton MA estate planning and elder law attorney.  Website:  vonweisslaw.com The Massachusetts Uniform Probate Code (MUPC) became effective as of March 31, 2012.  I am often asked "How does my divorce affect my estate plan?"    The Massachusetts Uniform Probate Code (MUPC) became effective as of March 31, 2012. Before the MUPC, Massachusetts law provided that divorce revoked the provisions in favor of a former spouse in a pre-existing Will (the former spouse was treated as having died first).  The net effect was that the former spouse did not inherit directly under the Will and any nominations appointing the former spouse were void.  The prior law was sometimes problematic.  For example, under the old law, the stepchildren pote...

The author Brigitte von Weiss of VON WEISS LAW OFFICE is an estate planning lawyer and elder law attorney in Easton, MA. Website:  vonweisslaw.com   What do I get if my spouse dies without a Will?   A preliminary issue is whether there is a valid and enforceable prenuptial agreement or separation agreement impacting the inheritance rights of the surviving spouse.  The balance of this blog assumes there is no such valid and enforceable prenuptial or separation agreement.  The Massachusetts Uniform Probate Code (MUPC) became effective as of March 31, 2012.   In the absence of a Will, § 2-102 of the MUPC provides that the surviving spouse is entitled to the entire estate in two circumstances.  The first circumstance is where there are no stepchildren or descendants of stepchildren, i.e., a...

(Centsable Inspection)
A Norwood 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 from the Seller or Seller's agent. Since MA Home Inspector licensing in 2001, a consumer must have a signed exclusive buyer's agent agreement with a Real Estate Broker or Salesperson before the Real Estate Broker or Salesperson can refer a home inspector. Without a signed exclusive buyer's agent agreement, the Real Estate Broker or Salesperson may only refer the buyer to the list of all MA Home Inspectors from the Massachusetts Board of Registration of Home Inspectors. Finding your Norwood MA Home Inspector from the list of all MA home inspectors can be quite a challenge. An internet search for "Norwood MA Home Inspection" may...

Another Satisfied Homebuyer: Congratulations to the New Owners of 15 Savin Ave., Norwood   Congratulations to my buyers who closed last week on their purchase of a home in Norwood MA!   These first time home buyers contacted me in the spring to start the search for their first home.  They had done their homework and had a preapproval in hand for a MassHousing loan from a reputable local lender.  MassHousing is a great alternative to an FHA loan.  Same low downpayment, no high PMI costs.   When we first looked at this Norwood home it was priced at $299,900.00.  It was the height of the busy spring season, multiple offers were everywhere and the open house for this home was extremely busy.  While my buyers liked the house, we thought it was overpriced.  Not wanting to get in a bidding war...

Another Satisfied Homebuyer: Congratulations to the New Owners of 89 Hill St., Norwood MA   Congratulations to my buyers who closed earlier this week on their purchase of a home in Norwood MA   I had been working with one of these buyers since last Spring.  When she did not find what she wanted, she waited patiently.  This Spring, she contacted me again, with her boyfriend to start the search anew.   They entered this crazy spring real estate market in Norwood MA encountering multiple offer situations and fast deadlines.  We saw houses as soon as they came on the market and had our offers ready to go.  They were out bid in a few multiple offer situations - but finally found the right one at 89 Hill Street.       This two-bedroom home has the perfect location for these buyers - walking d...

Another Satisfied Homebuyer: Congratulations to the New Owner of 125 Devon Road, Norwood, MA   Congratulations to my buyer who closed at the end of May on the purchase of a home in Norwood MA.     This buyer was one of the most thorough buyers I have ever worked with.  He researched towns, neighborhoods, types of homes and in particular the kind of home he needed for his particular needs, well before he contacted me.  He had ruled out a number of homes and neighborhoods before we even started looking together.  He'd visit neighborhoods, talk to neighbors and drive around to make sure it was a place he wanted to live.     We focused on Norwood MA because of its proximity to the commuter rail, low tax rate and overall reputation as a town.  Norwood has seen the same low inventory as many ...

Weekly Home Sales 3/9/2013-3/16/2013 Weekly Single Family homes sold in Norwood, MA. If you would like more detailed information about a home or homes that sold, I will provide that info as requested. The home sale data is important because it is fresh evidence of how the real estate market in Norwood is performing. Sold data is the true barometer when conducting a market analysis. Some consumers and real estate agents wrongly use current available properties as a lead basis for pricing analysis. Although, current inventory pricing should be considered because of the competition factor. The true measure of a homes present value is what like/similar homes have recently sold for. The following homes closed between 3/2/2013 and 3/9/2013. 82 Arnold Road, 3 bedroom/2 bath raised ranch, days...
