So You Got an Offer Above Asking?

 

If you know anyone looking to buy a home or working in real estate right now you probably know about the current discrepancy between buyers and houses to buy. Many sellers are receiving multiple offers, often even above asking price because the inventory is so low. But sellers beware… lenders will base their allowance on the appraisal of the home. Remember that all contingencies must be clear in your contract in order to avoid problems on getting a deal through.

What to Expect Before Closing

 

After your P&S is signed, make sure your mortgage loan professional has everything he or she needs from you. Pay special attention to the finance contingency provision date. The closing date is fixed and cannot be changed without everyone agreeing. Lastly, get your funding in order and maybe hold off on scheduling contractors until it’s a done deal. Enjoy the ride!

Nonessential Evictions in MA Update (October 2020)

 

This week it’s a Zoom update with Ben Cote and Emmanuel Ebot about the eviction moratorium in MA due to the pandemic. It’s wise to take this moment by moment, as there is always a chance for a further extension, but currently the end date is October 17th, 2020.

A new CDC regulation acts as a separate residential eviction moratorium with a triggering condition based on the fact that certain circumstances caused by eviction could aid in the spread of COVID-19 and should be avoided.

It’s better to be proactive than reactive. Plan ahead as well as possible to stay out of court and keep things easier on everyone.
