It's no secret buyers in the upper tier market within the Boston area suburbs are struggling. I'm pleased to share that there are alternatives to breaking your budget or overpaying,  if you know where to look. If the idea of buying a million dollar condo with small closets that needs renovations and has no parking isn't appealing to you I have the solution that you need.

The compressed inventory and the abundance of qualified bidders should be all the reason you need to embrace the idea of falling in love with the lifestyle that the communities further north have to offer. The key to successful home buying in 2017 is knowing your options, when to engage the seller and what you can do to increase your odds of becoming a home owner without breaking your budget. For many the answer is expanding their search.
