A Plainville 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 Plainville MA Home Inspector from the list of all MA home inspectors can be quite a challenge. An internet search for "Plainville MA Home Inspec...

My grandson, Ryan Tvelia, has started a summer car detailing business called "Clean As A Whistle."  He’s already started detailing cars for people in his neighborhood, and word of mouth has created many more detailing jobs for him. Since I do marketing all day, I thought I'd create a postcard, and I’ll be mailing it to homes in Plainville MA.  Ryan has his appointment book ready to be filled with addresses and appointment dates and times.    Direct mail marketing works well for me, so I’m confident he’ll have a very busy summer with a few of these mailings.  Just another benefit of direct mail marketing beyond real estate!!!

Today, my grandson Ryan detailed my Jeep, and I'll have agents in my office checking it out so they can have Ryan detail their vehicles.  From what I've seen, they can all use it!!!! Ryan does a great job and gets into every little crevice.  Of course I have photos of Ryan in action.....                                               Ryan's very entrepreneurial.  He's a junior in high school and will be college bound with a major in sociology and criminal justice.  His goal is to work in the Norfolk County Sheriff's Department just as his father did.  Isn't he handsome???  By the way, my Jeep is eleven years old.....but just like new!!!

     Plainville, MA  had a solid 2011 when it came to Real Estate Sales,  If we just review single family sales, we can see that fewer homes were sold in 2011 than 2010 but the number of condos sold grew dramatically over 2010.  The average sale per sq foot price has dropped a bit .  When compared to Metrowest, most metrowest towns had more homes sold in 2011 over 2012 but all towns except one that I reviewed, saw a reduction in per sq ft sale price.   If you would like to learn more about Plainville's real estate market, take a look at the Plainville Homes Sold in 2011 Rpt under the category "Plainville" And if you would like to know more about the value of your home, or you would like to look for homes in Plainville, give Marcia Kramarz a call 508 446 5094.

Plainville Massachusetts Foreclosure Report May 2011 According to Realty Trac, Inc. There were 12 foreclosure filings in Plainville Massachusetts in May of 2011. That works out to be 1 in every 490 homes and represents slight increase April 2011. The increasing number of foreclosure filings are further evidence that the housing crisis is not over. From my understanding the Banks and The Department of Housing and Urban Development have all agreed that 2011 will be the year they push through with most of the pending foreclosures that have been held up due to title issues, faulty assignments and moratoriums. Many economists believe that the best way to deal with this problem is to get through it as quickly as possible. Sellers who are facing foreclosure have two primary options. If they de...

A Plainville 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.
