If the drama filled spring market of 2017 has left you feeling like you simply can't win - I have GREAT news. There are towns with price ranges where it's a Buyer controlled market. YES! It's true! Here at the NOBLE Group along side our talented Buyer Specialists I'm searching high and low for the best bargains in the market just for you. See the full list of houses available by price point by scrolling down. At Bentley's we are the #1 Real Estate Team in ALL of Essex County & Soon to be Middlesex County as well - we work with many, many sellers and often know about new listings weeks before they hit the market. 

If you are tired of old, beat up kitchens, closets that are described as bedrooms and cringeworthy basements called living space it's time to consider expanding  your horizons. We have put a list together of communities where your $$$ will provide you with more house, more amenities, good communities and easy access to Boston. I've included a few example homes to show how much of a difference coming a little north of the city makes. Scroll down for a full list of homes broken down by price point.
