"Bow Bank" holds a delightful C1850 Colonial cottage, on nearly 3 acres, at the bank of the Rowley River sited on a gentle upland knoll, surrounded by the Great Marsh. For people that are SERIOUS about getting away from it all.....this incredibly rare opportunity to step "back in time" does not often present itself. You are completely "off the grid" solar lights, gas fridge/cooking, cistern for water and a composting "loo". Yet, you are roughly 1/2 mile from a small, local marina/launch service and less than a mile to the train station with service to Boston. No current dock, but easily accessed at higher tides. Possibility to build a dock/add a float and simple "out haul" with proper permits. Wraparound porch/with large screened room.The river flows into Plum Island Sound/Ipswich Bay to the Atlantic. Slip your kayak/canoe off the bank and paddle your cares away. Bird life is phenomenal. The views are incredible, the privacy...sublime. The serenity, priceless.
Answers. It's what we all want. But nobody has them, and anyone claiming they do, well, I recommend a fact check. None of us here at Windhil have that elusive crystal ball and no, we can't make you any promises about the future. But what I can tell you is that here in the northeast, north of Boston, on the northshore in particular, what we are seeing right now is serious pent-up demand for inventory and every listing we take has a long line of ready, willing and able buyers. These homes, if priced properly, are going under contract with multiple offers, sometimes over asking and because our network of professionals including lenders, inspectors, attorneys, etc. are now well-versed in the new way of doing business, the closings are happening efficiently and on time. The closings might be curbside but the smiles are still there.
Predictions point to a delay in inventory that will inevitably explode so if you're thinking of selling but the path is unclear, ask for help, get some sound advice, educate yourself about the new process. Lack of inventory is to your advantage, while it lasts.
The Massachusetts Real Estate Market is Down But Not Out! Great article thank you to WGBH.
"It's important to remember that people have to buy and sell homes in any market." An accurate statement and why I believe the real estate industry was deemed essential in Massachusetts. Our experience thus far has been that there are a multitude of buyers out there, still needing and wanting to buy. Buyers who are willing to abide by stringent showing instructions necessitated by Covid-19 represent a new level of seriousness, eliminating the "lookey-loos" and tire kickers.
Forbes makes a good point, "working with a strong real estate agent is even more vital now than ever before". Why? Because, of course many sellers who have taken their homes off the market for various personal reasons due to the pandemic but that does not mean they don't want/need to sell. It more likely means that they do not want showings right now. A professional Realtor embedded in their community is a key part of that equation, more so now than ever. Forbes' Key Questions for Buyer or Selling a Home During the Pandemic offers some valuable insight and guidance for those of us who need it.
