The End of One Thing-the Beginning of Another

2, September, 2014

One of my goals, as a local real estate professional, is to assist people in transition. Transition can manifest itself in many ways, but one of the most natural parts of life is your current home “outgrowing” you and your need to address the need to sell that residence and move on to smaller housing arrangements, many times in Boston. I have helped many people in that type of situation, and because my kids have left our home and currently are working, and residing elsewhere, and will not be coming home, I am in a “transitional” mode, myself. If you are faced with a similar situation, I would like to work with you on your transition to smaller housing arrangements.
I am prepared to take this assignment on with a multifaceted goal. The first would be to sell your suburban home for a price which we agree upon. Fortunately, this a time of a rising market, especially in Milton and Quincy, so you may be pleasantly surprised to find out how much your home would sell for. I will sit with you, review the features of your home, provide you with a Comprehensive Market Analysis and enter into a Listing Agreement to get your home sold this fall at a price you are happy with.
At the same time as we are marketing your current home, I will be working with you to find new living arrangements. We can review the “buy-rent” scenario. You may be surprised to discover that the rental market, even in Boston, has softened, and there are some rental opportunities that may be attractive to you. We can also discuss new projects which are still not completed but which you may buy now with the thought that you will have a temporary period of rental prior to your moving in to the newly purchased Condominium Unit or Townhouse in Boston.
While some of these choices may seem daunting to you, I assure you that if we work together, we can establish a flow of milestones and responsibility, which will make the process much less stressful than you anticipate. Among other things, my husband, Elliott S. Topkins, (617-596-3184 Cell) is an experienced real estate attorney, and he has proved a reliable source of answers to legal questions for my clients in the past. His services come along, at no charge, when you work with me, and he is happy to help me help you.
So, if transition is in your future, please feel free to contact me. I have gone through a few of my own “transitions”, and I have helped others with theirs. I can give you full service, with suggestions of reputable movers, painters, electricians and other necessary people who you will need to complete your transition. Give me a call, or send me an email. I make house calls on a regular basis, and I welcome the opportunity to work with you.
