The process doesn’t end at finding a Back Bay condo you like online

There are hundreds of steps that need to be taken during each successful downtown Boston real estate transaction. You will be much more comfortable going through this process with someone who is familiar with each and every step.

Skilled Negotiation is a must

Hiring a skilled negotiator will save you thousands, maybe even tens of thousands of dollars. Negotiation will save you money not only in the original offer of the home, but after the home inspection, and in a worst case, after a troubled appraisal.

Know what the home you are buying or selling is worth

You can search the internet for information on Boston Back Bay condos for sale, home prices, and mortgage rates. It gets a little bit more complicated when you want information about your specific area. It is crucial to price your home correctly and competitively. An agent will also ensure you have a strong offer placed on your dream home without paying too much or low-balling.
