gray dream freestanding letters

Are you feeling like you may want to make a move this year?

Does the ease of owning high quality new construction appeal?

Does the idea of being able to choose custom finishes sound fun?

How does carefree homeownership sound where someone else is responsible for
plowing, landscaping, and exterior maintenance of your home?

duplex style townhousesDid you miss out on our sold out townhouse communities of

Mill Stream Village,
1284 County Street
Attleboro, Massachusetts

Flynn Terrace,
1400 Commerce Way
Attleboro, Massachusetts

and Ides Hill Commons,
1405 Commerce Way
Attleboro, Massachusetts
?

Then don’t delay… it sounds like you are ready to own one of our
Kensington Real Estate BrokerageNEW  3BR, 2.5BA, Two Car Garage, Tiffany Street Townhomes 
(at 537 Tiffany Street and 539 Tiffany Street in Attleboro)
that are once again proudly offered for sale by
the New Homes Team of Kensington Real Estate Brokerage.

This eight unit townhouse community is set on Tiffany Street below Flynn Terrace and Ides Hill Commons (when coming from Rt 123).  You can not beat the convenient location a mile to Rt 95 and minutes to either the downtown Attleboro train station or South Attleboro train station near Market Basket.  Plus attractions like the New England Sports Village, Capron Park Zoo, the Attleboro Farmers’ Market and tons of awesome restaurants and shopping are also only minutes away.  Commuters absolutely appreciate this location whether traveling south to Providence (and really anywhere in Rhode Island) or north to the Boston area.

Foundations are poured, paving has been completed, and framing has commenced.  We expect delivery for these custom luxury Townhomes in late April/May.  (With New England weather, it is always tough to predict new construction progress through the winter months but believe me, if our contractors can get on site to work they will keep on working!)

All eight of these units will feature the same popular two car garage layout that was offered at Ides Hill Commons and Flynn Terrace.  AND with each building consisting of only two townhouses, ALL units will be END UNITS.

Low condo fee currently estimated at $200/month to cover plowing, landscaping, exterior maintenance, and master insurance.  Ahh… carefree living!

Priced at $374,900 these units are sure to sell out as quickly as Ides Hill Commons and Flynn Terrace.  I have had the pleasure of selling these Townhomes in all three of our recent projects – Mill Stream Village, Flynn Terrance, and most recently Ides Hill Commons.  I’ve also assisted homeowners in re-selling their condos in all three of these complexes as their individual needs changed.  Whether new construction, one year old, three years old, or 10 years old, these units stand the test of time with their solid construction and upscale finishes.  I really do not anticipate that these new units will last long on the market.  Even if you are just exploring the idea, please always feel free to reach out for more information (jen.mcmorran@gmail.com or 508-930-5259).   It is a pleasure to be a resource to those thinking about making a move in real estate!

If you have a home to sell, definitely give a call 508-930-5259 no matter where you think you will be moving to next.  With the recent dip in mortgage rates and low inventory, now is the time for us to work on a plan to get your current home ready to list for sale, on the market, and SOLD!

Always happy to be of any assistance to you or anyone you know who is thinking about buying or selling a home. Know that I love to find the right Homes for individuals and families, to work hard for my clients, and to earn your referrals throughout Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

This one’s for you Rachel… The BEST granola recipe!

image

 

jennifer and rachel

Just talking to my good friend Rachel about how she made some “not so appealing”, slightly chewy, “young daughter said these are not good” breakfast cookies.  Well, never fear Rachel, your good friend Jennifer is here!  (Yes, she is my one friend that calls me Jennifer 🙂  Best friends since second grade so no chance she will be calling me “Jen” after 40 years!)

But back to what’s important… This granola recipe is fool proof – believe me whomever you share this with will thank you.  I definitely know Rachel’s daughter Janie will!!

Best breakfast ever… granola and vanilla greek yogurt. No matter what has happened in the morning, this little dish of delciousness always gets me back on track and ready to face the day. You can’t beat the combination of savory and sweet. I encourage you to do some experimenting as well! This recipe is a good starting point for any additional fruits, nuts, or any other flavors you’d like to add.

Ingredients:
3 cups rolled oats (NOT instant)
1 cup slivered almonds
1 cup cashew pieces
¾ cup shredded sweet coconut
¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons DARK brown sugar

¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons real maple syrup
¼ cup vegetable oil
¾ tsp salt

1 cup raisins or other dried fruit (optional)

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.

In one bowl, combine the oats, nuts, coconut, and brown sugar.  In separate bowl, combine maple syrup, oil, and salt. Mix until fully incorporated into a syrup.  Pour syrup mixture over oat & nut mixture and mix until syrup is fully distributed.  Split mixture between two cookie sheets. Cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes, stirring and turning every 15 minutes to achieve even golden brown color. Remove from oven, cool a bit, and then combine with dried fruit if desired.

**You can use a variety of favorite nuts, just keep measured amounts of nuts the same and you should be all set. Enjoy!

Always happy to be of any assistance to you or anyone you know who is thinking about buying or selling a home. I love to work hard for my clients and your referrals throughout Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Holiday Home Shopping – it’s the perfect time!

I’m not sure what you have heard about the housing market and searching for a home in December so I thought I would clear things up.   The Winter Holiday Season is actually an awesome time to purchase a home – especially for buyers!

The simple reasons:
1. Sellers tend to be a little more motivated.
2. There are far fewer buyers competing for the same popular properties.

Those buyers that have been through a hot Spring market know what I mean… multiple offers, “highest and best”, “escalation clauses”, buyers waiving home inspections, sellers not accepting any contingencies, deferred showings to increase hype, and often Cash Offers beating out everyone in the end. Not fun.

woman using space gray iphone xLet me share a little secret too, even when you are on the sellers’ side of the transaction, multiple offers can be very stressful working through different buyers’ situations and terms to ultimately decide which one is the most solid. (Experienced Agents also know that buyers’ remorse is a big consequence of a fast moving, “gotta get my offer accepted” Spring market. All too often we see buyers reconsider their offer that may have been over asking price once the reality of being under contract to purchase sets in.)

But back to December and “the most wonderful time of the year”!
This is an awesome time to buy a home and Kensington has the perfect properties for your Holiday Home shopping!

A pristine Townhouse, luxury new construction, turn-key Colonial, waterfront fixer upper, solid one level 55+ mobile home, commercial property, two-family investment property, and more!  We have something for everyone.  And if you don’t see it in our listing inventory, we can certainly find it for you.  Anything here interest you?

Classic Buffalo Wing Recipe to Bring Home the Win!

I’m not just a Realtor who is good at finding houses 🙂  I also love finding the perfect recipes for the foods we love best.   If you are looking for the perfect chicken wing recipe, I assure you, this classic will bring home the win every time!

Best Homemade WingsWe pretty much will eat anything that has been “Buffalo-ized” in our house. Chicken, shrimp, mac & cheese, pizza, egg rolls, dips, calamari, French fries, baked potatoes  … we’ve done it all!   So thankful to have discovered this recipe as we now routinely come back to these classic wings  based on the original Anchor Bar recipe from Buffalo, NY. (It’s been a long time since I ate wings in Buffalo, NY , but we make these at least once a week and now prefer them to ordering out in our area!)

About 3 lbs of chicken wings (you can buy the wingettes already set to go, or buy whole wings cut them apart at the joint)
1 Tablespoon peanut oil (or vegetable oil)
1 tsp salt
1 cup flour
1 1/2 Tablespoons white vinegar
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (increase slightly for hotter wings)
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp Tabasco sauce (increase slightly for hotter wings)
1/4 tsp salt
6 Tablespoons Frank’s hot sauce
6 Tablespoon butter

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

1. Toss wings in a bowl with oil and salt. In large zip lock bag, add flour. Add wings to ziplock with flour and shake until evenly coated.

2. Line cookie sheet with foil and oil (I usually use about 1 Tablespoon of peanut oil for added flavor and evenly coat the foil by spreading it around with my fingers. Make sure it is all covered so wings don’t stick.)

3. Take wings out of bag, shake off extra flour, and place on cookie sheets. Do not crowd them so they bake evenly. Place on bottom rack of oven and bake for 20 minutes at 425. Then flip and bake for another 20 minutes, or until wings are cooked through.

4. Time to make your sauce… in sauce pan combine white vinegar, cayenne, garlic powder, Worcestershire, tabasco, salt, Frank’s hot sauce, and butter. Cook on low heat until blended then let turn off heat and let sit (Go low and slow with the heat when cooking the sauce.  If you cook on too high of a heat, the butter will separate from the sauce.)

5. Once wings are done cooking, place in large mixing bowl. (I try to stack them up on the edges of the bowl so when I pour the sauce in, it is a little easier to evenly coat the wings.) Gently toss with wooden spoon or spatula (don’t get too “rough” with them, you don’t want them to lose any of their crispy coating goodness).

6. Serve with blue cheese and celery. Enjoy!!

Whose market is it anyway?

Ah, the age old question in real estate from clients… is it a buyers’ market?  sellers’ market?   Economists define the state of our local real estate markets based on the amount of housing inventory available.   Inventory determines sellers or buyers market

In general, when there is less than a 6 month supply of housing inventory, we refer to that as a Sellers’ Market where home prices will tend to be increased.   When there is a 6-7 month supply of housing inventory,  this is a Neutral Market.  In a neutral market, home prices will follow the trend of inflation and not see significant price increases or decreases.  When there is more than a 7 month supply of inventory, this is referred to as a Buyer’s Market.  In a Buyer’s market, home prices will be decreased over time.

A key fact to remember … the type of market you fall into can vary based on your specific price point, your specific town, and even the specific area of town in which the property is located. 

So what does this mean when pricing your home or submitting an offer on a home to purchase?  These definitions merely provide a general guage of market activity.   It means you still must evaluate the active listing competition on the current market,  recent properties that have gone under agreeement, recent Sold property prices, AND how much selling or buying that specific property means to you.   Sometimes you only get one chance to make the sale or purchase a specific property.

Manorahan closing pictureThere is absolutely a business side to all real estate transactions, for investors, this is the critical piece to a transactions in purchasing and reselling properties.  For most consumers, though, buying and selling a Home also has a unique personal aspect.  Getting hung up on economic theory is not a reason to miss out on purchasing a new home or being able to sell to make a move that may be perfect for you and your personal situation.

Curious where your current property fits into the housing market?  Or are you looking for a property to finally call Home?  I’d love to help you gather the information needed to help you make the right real estate decisions for you… just give a call 508-930-5259, e-mail jen.mcmorran@gmail.com, or fill out the contact form below.

Always a pleasure to be of any assistance to you or anyone you know who is thinking about buying or selling a home. I love to work hard for my clients and your referrals throughout Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

7 Musket

You thought finding the right real estate agent,  getting pre-approved by a mortgage officer, searching through listings, riding through neighborhoods, and touring houses to find the right home was the hard part?   That’s just the beginning, but a beginning to what should be a happy ending.  Buying (and selling a home) is process.  See below for a general guide to  keep that process moving along…

Making an Offer:
1. Find a great home
2. Determine offer price
3. Determine amount you will be financing
4. Determine a closing date
5. Jen will complete the offer form for you to review and sign
6. Deposit check to listing office to bind the offer (typically $1000, it does get deposited!)
7. Pre-Approval Letter from your bank or mortgage company

Purchase and Sale Agreement (P&S)
Overriding contract to the offer in the sale of the home
Worked on and agreed upon by both the buyers’ and seller’s attorney
Make additional P&S deposit – bank check to listing company

Ordered by your mortgage company.  Paid for by you.

Completing Mortgage File.
Submit anything & everything your mortgage company asks for,
when they ask for it,
and no matter how many times they ask for it 

Mortgage Commitment.
Your loan along with the property you are purchasing have been approved by the bank
You likely will still have a few conditions on your to-do list – make sure “to do” them

Clear to Close from mortgage company (nothing left on your mortgage to-do list)
Closing Disclosure issued and three days later… Closing!!

Always a pleasure to be of any assistance to you or anyone you know who is thinking about buying or selling a home. I love to work hard for my clients and your referrals throughout Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
