Not sure where to start?  First Time Home Buyers are one of my specialties.  I have the patience, knowledge, and the right team of professionals to guide you through the entire process.  I surround myself with professionals who understand that as a First Time Home Buyer you are going to have questions, you are going to be getting advice (good and bad) from family and friends,  and that you aren’t even going to know enough about some parts of the transaction to know you should be asking questions.  That is when we make the biggest difference for you.  We aren’t just about numbers and deals… we are about working with people to assist them in making the best decisions they can when it comes to their upcoming homeownership move.

When you make the choice to work with me, you will also have the opportunity to work with some of the best mortgage officers, home inspectors, attorneys, and contractors around.  We have a track record of respect in the industry and success in reaching our clients’ home ownership goals.  The best part … we are ready now to work hard for you!

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.

Homes Fur Sale

WatsonEvery day is “Puppy Day” in my world 🙂  but I really did enjoy people celebrating their furry friends on Facebook last week during “Happy Puppy Day”.

So I am sending out a big “Hello” to some of my favorite furry friends I have had the pleasure of meeting, hanging out with, walking with, and talking with these past few years in real estate. I know these special pups make a difference in your days and I want you to know they make a difference in my day too! Nothing like a little pet therapy in the middle of a crazy day of offers, negotiations, home inspections, attorneys, mortgages, closing, etc to make everything feel OK again 🙂

 

And please know when it comes to listing and selling your home, if you have pets, their safety and well-being are my first priority.  I understand what an important part of a family these awesome dogs are. We will work together on figuring out the best plan for them whether it is grouping showings so you can have them with you for more condensed periods of time, finding a dog walker, making them a comfy home in the corner, having a teammate with me on showings and open houses … whatever it takes.  When we list your home “fur sale” your favorites friends will not be forgotten.

And in case you or your wonderful pups are looking for a new fur-ever home, as always, I am at your service happy to help in anyway I can.  Once again, the Spring market is here with low inventory and high buyer demand.   Buyers are looking for neat, clean, fresh looking spaces that have been well maintained.  Curious what your home would be worth in today’s market?  Wondering what work should be done to attract the best buyers? Just give a call 508-930-5259 or send an e-mail jen.mcmorran@gmail.com  … I’d love to chat with you whether you are planning a move soon or planning for the future.

Hope you had a very “Happy Puppy Day”!!

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 their referrals throughout Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Don’t be scared… get the facts!

Jen McMorran, RealtorMortgages and the home buying process continually evolve and change to meet the needs of the ever changing consumer, adjust to the state of over all economy, and facilitate a strong housing market without becoming irresponsible again.

So, “No”, it is not like when your parents bought a home 20 years ago or even when you friend bought a home 5 years ago.  But knowledge is power.   As long as you know the facts, you too can be on the path to home ownership which most financial advisors still believe is one of the best long term investments you can make with your money.don't be scared to buy a home
Infographic, Keeping Current Matters, October 2017

And of course, educating and sharing the facts is one of my favorite roles as a real estate agent.  Whether I am working with first time home buyers, move-up buyers, empty-nesters, or retirees … the entire transaction moves along smoother when we take as much of the uncertainty and fear out of the process as we can.

Did you know that there are still 0% down payment mortgage programs, 3.5% down payment mortgage programs, and then of course 10%, 20% …  The key is to work with a mortgage professional who will talk you through all of your options.

Did you know you don’t have to have a perfect credit score to qualify?

Did you realized that buying a home can ultimately be less expensive than renting?

Steph and Derrick SoldRemember until you discuss your current situation and goals with a mortgage and real estate professional, you may not have all of the facts.  I am always available as a resource to you, your friends, co-workers, family members… feel free to call, text, 508-930-5259 or e-mail jen.mcmorran@gmail.com any time!!  I only recommend the best when it comes to mortgage professionals, attorneys, home inspectors, etc. as they are essential to successful transactions.  Again, please do not hesitate to reach out if you are in need of a referral or just trying to figure how to start the process.   It’s what I do… share information to help buyers and sellers meet their goals.

Six NEW Townhomes under agreement at Ides Hill Commons – want to be next?

IMG_9663Despite the rain last week, it has been very busy over at Ides Hill Commons.  The roof is now on and windows and siding will be following right along for  units 21 through 24 – our second building to go up.  And if you can believe it, all four of those units are now under contract for September closings.  Two car garage models seem to be very popular this year!  Now that our framers have completed their work on that building, they have cleared out and so more site work could get finished up as our subcontractors  continue to work away inside the units on plumbing, electrical, HVAC, insulation, and walls 🙂  There will definitely be a lot going on over the next month or so!

003-Front_View-1376418-mediumThough I know a two car garage may always seem like the optimal choice, I have to say, both of our models have distinct and attractive features!  Did you note that the one car garage models actually feature more square footage of living space? Our one car garage models offer 1660sf of living verses 1588sf in the two car garage models.   And, when entering the one car garage model, it is only a few steps up from the parking area or garage to the main living level verses walking up a full flight of stairs from the garage in the two car models.  Flynn Terrace Kitchen with Cherry CabinetsThe one car garage models have laundry  on the second floor off of the spacious landing outside the bedrooms.  The one car garage model also boasts a HUGE basement great for storage, play space, exercise room, or take advantage of the high ceilings and finish it off for future living space. 015-Kitchen-1376427-medium

Every unit has two additional parking spaces outside – both one car & two car garage models –  so there is always still room for three cars to easily park at the one car garage units.   I highly recommending exploring both models before deciding which fits your lifestyle the best.  To compare models and floor plans, click on the links to check out the layouts for one car model and two car models.  And of course,  always feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule a showing!

Don’t become a flat squirrel

To my dearest clients… and you know who you are 🙂

Be decisive

Saw this quote on Facebook the other day and just had to smile… It really is so true.  We all can get caught up in trying to make a decision occasionally.  But, truthfully, a prolonged torturous decision making process can  waste time, create unnecessary anxiety, and cause us to miss out on opportunities (and some of those may be great opportunities).

I see this a lot of this in real estate.  Buying a home and selling a home are definitely big decisions.  Clients have to consider their current financial situations as well as what they anticipate for income in the future.   Plus, they  need to consider their lifestyles… where do they commute to work or do they need space to work from home?  Do they have kids, are the planning to have kids, are older parents planning to move back in?  Are they handy or do they prefer new construction or condo living?   Do they need green space for pets or want space to create a garden?  Is a garage a must or could they live without one?

Brigham Hill Estates, AttleboroSo many buyers wonder, “What if something better comes on the market?”.    Sellers wonder, “What if I could get more money from my house?”.   The truth is none of us have a crystal ball to see into the future.  Life is about making the best decisions you can with the information you have at the present time.   That’s all any of us can do whether it be in our personal lives, professional lives, or in the middle of a real estate transaction.

Larissa, Erek, and XavierDon’t let yourself become a flattened squirrel 🙂  There are very few things in real estate that can not be worked through.  If you make a decision with a particular goal in mind, I will do everything I can to help you attain that goal whether buying a home or selling a home (and if I just don’t think it will work, I will let you know that as well!).  The best part of my job is seeing smiling faces at the end of a transaction and I will work hard to get us there.
