"I've enjoyed your classy approach to real estate...how fortunate I've been to just go with the flow..."

Hello, Summer

As we step into the second half of the year, it’s exciting to embrace the summer season and all its warmth. What are your summer plans? Will you be spending time traveling or with family? How about a day trip on a spectacular schooner? (See Local Happenings section below.)

 

Read on for everything you need to know this month, including local events, real estate news, my home staging tips, and more – curated just for you!

 

 

REAL ESTATE IN THE NEWS

 

What Does Move-In Ready Really Mean?

You may need to adjust your mindset before walking into a house advertised as move-in ready.

 

But what does “move-in ready” really mean? Depending on who’s talking, it could simply mean that all the appliances work. For others, it means a freshly renovated home that reflects popular trends and styles. Or you may want a house that requires zero work – if the paint colors don’t match your tastes, it’s not move-in ready.

Weston, MA - Area Market Review

2023 vs 2022 as of July 11, 2023

Prepared by Leslye Fligor on Tuesday, July 11, 2023

 

 

 

Takeaway - This is still a seller's market. Low inventory has allowed prices to remain high. Days on Market have increased, but ultimately, home sales in 2023 are closing at higher prices than in 2022.

Fun fact: Rugby's name was inspired because my husband Andy played rugby at Babson College and sons Doug & Greg were ruggers at Syracuse University. We love the game & our puppy!
