Can I Buy A House During the Winter?

By Dave Twombly It's been a tough go of it for some of my buyers in the past few months. The inventory of houses on the market has been low and the demand has been rabid. You go to a cozy little Cape in Arlington and see that 35 people have come to the open

What I Did On My Summer Vacation

By Dave Twombly Hello Friends, It's been a long time since we've spoken (yeah, I take full responsibility for it. It was me, not you). Now that the fall is knocking on our door (I can't believe I just wrote that, so sad) you'll be back to hearing from me regularly. (I hope none of

Buyers are liars?

By Rona Fischman One of the best training tools for me, as a buyer’s agent, has been to take classes designed by seller-centered real estate companies to teach agents how to “handle” house buyers.
