81 Avalon Drive in Attleboro, Massachusetts
is absolutely beautiful and it is for sale!!

81 Avalon.jpg

This 2550sf home was built in 2016 and truly shows like new!  Meticulously maintained and upgraded –  pride of ownership shows both inside and out.  You’ll love floor plan which lends itself wonderfully to living, relaxing, and entertaining.  And, such a great location in a newer Attleboro neighborhood with easy access to the MBTA station for those commuting by train.   Priced under $600,000, you don’t miss out on this one!

81 Avalon Drive Highlights:

Eat-in kitchen with center island, dining area with sliders to the deck, and high-end stainless steel Kitchenaid appliance with extended 5 year warranty.

Huge great room up a half flight of stairs from the kitchen perfect for watching the big game, hanging out with friends and family, or just sitting and enjoying the wonderful gas fireplace.

Spacious dining room with hardwood floors, wainscoting,  and crown molding opens to the kitchen and front foyer.

Formal living room light and bright with hardwood floors.

Master suite with gorgeous vaulted ceiling, walk-in closet, and en-suite bath featuring a a beautiful tile & glass shower and double vanity.

More beautiful tile work and granite in the main bath.

There are two additional good sized bedrooms upstairs along with a fourth room with a closet that could make a great office,  nursery, or guest quarters for overnight visitors.

These sellers have spent over $20,000 on landscaping and hardscapes since moving in.

They have also installed an irrigation system to keep the lawn looking lush and green.

They have upgraded to a tankless on-demand hotwater system.

Added a top of the line whole house humidifier.

Carpeted the entire basement creating a great area to work out as well as practice your putting.

AND… the sellers have installed new solar panels. And, don’t worry, there is no lease to worry about with this system.  The panels have been purchased outright by the sellers and are already making  money.  No electric bills for the past three months and over a $500 credit with National Grid so far.  The new homeowners will also have the SREC credits transferred on to the for the next 9 years – it is estimated you could be receiving a check for approximately $1000-$1200/year.  No, this is not too good to be true.  It is just another example of the well thought-out upgrades in which the sellers have invested.

Nothing to do but move in… really!!!

Please give a call 508-930-5259 with any questions or if you’d like to set up a a showing.  This would be an amazing property to call Home.

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.

Staging to Sell

Real Estate Agents ProvidenceSoooooooo many sellers getting their properties ready to go on the market right now. I can tell that June is going to be a VERY busy month. I know I have three listings whose sellers all want to go “live” during the first week of June. I will definitely be taking the upcoming long weekend to rest up and hopefully my clients will be able to squeeze in a little fun as well while they really dig in to getting their homes “show” and “offer writing” ready!

The National Association of Realtors just shared the timely infographic of advice below on how to stage and style a home on a budget. So many great ideas that are both affordable, simple, and impactful when presenting your home to prospective buyers.
Staging your home on a budget for a fast sale

First impressions are everything.

Make sure your curb appeal is all it can be… weed the gardens, mow the lawn,  tidy up the mailbox, mulch the beds.  You want a nice clean presentation as buyers pull up the drive way.

And make sure to consider your front entry and door…  fix any loose bricks on the steps, paint the front door, clean the windows,  and I always love to add a potted geranium for a classic pop of color 🙂

Once inside, a good cleaning and some fresh paint really go a long way.   If you have pets, make sure buyers don’t see or smell traces of them.  Some buyers will turn around and walk right out if animals aren’t their cup of tea or if they have allergies.

Clear out as much furniture as possible keeping only those pieces that truly help to define the room.

When placing furniture, try to keep corners clear as this will help to give the room a more open spacious feel.  (Lighting in the corners also will help with that.)   Speaking of lighting, if you don’t have over head lights, make sure to have lamps to give off ample “glow” – especially for evening showings.  You don’t want buyers calculating how much it would cost to have an electrician come in to wire for more lights in the ceiling.

And, yes, get rid of the clutter and “stuff”.  You want buyers to feel relaxed and want their eye to continue traveling around a room or space.  If you have committed to selling, you have committed to moving so just start packing!!

Keep bedding simple if you can – white quilts or comforters are great to brighten up a space.   Keep decor on couches and chairs simple as well – one throw and a couple of pillows should be fine to add some pizzazz.  (And please don’t spread the throw out across the back of the couch, it just breaks up the space way too much and draws too much attention.)

Clear off those kitchen counters and bathroom counters.  It is so important that both of those spaces appear clean and neat.   Toothbrushes, toothpaste, combs, brushes, medicine, etc. should all go neatly under the sink or in a drawer.  Spice racks, coffee pots, mixers, toaster ovens, etc. should be removed from counters to show off the space in a kitchen.   (I suggest having a laundry basket handy for showings so you can load all of the extra “stuff” into it and then take it along in the car with you.)  Fresh fruit and fresh flowers are great for livening up a kitchen with color.

Outside in the backyard, group outdoor toy sets, arrange seating areas so they look deliberate, and get rid of anything that may look like “junk” to a buyer.  Seeing anything “broken” during a showing can set the tone for a buyer.  If something has been sitting for a year or more waiting for you to fix it… just get rid of it 🙂

Ultimately, you need to look at your home with Buyers’ eyes.  Be critical because buyers will be for sure!

Check out listings on-line and see how you feel about the rooms presented in the photos.   Take your own photos of the rooms in your home – do they look open and spacious or is your focus drawn more to the “things” scattered around the room.  People love to blow up pictures on their computer screens so background details matter.

And if you are thinking about selling, always feel free to contact me for a consultation on things to do around your home as well as what your home would be worth in the current real estate market.

Call/text 508-930-5259 or e-mail me at jen.mcmorran@gmail.com.  I really enjoy helping and working with you to decide on the best solutions to capture buyers’ attention to sell your home.

Attleboro to Boston and the communities in between.

Give me an “A”!

Though many residents of neighboring towns may be surprised, those currently living in Attleboro  won’t be shocked at this news…

Buyers from all over (especially higher priced Boston housing markets) are now seeking out Attleboro as a place to purchase a home and settle whether living a single, couple, or family lifestyle.  Attleboro’s proximity to major routes and train lines make it the perfect location for commuters when traveling North to Boston, South to Providence, or West to Marlborough.   Home prices are on rise but still affordable compared to other markets.  The energy of the downtown and continued revitalization throughout the city definitely appeal to those wanting to get in early on a growing real estate market.  Resources are being invested into schools, building, businesses, infrastructure… all of the factors that contribute to creating a great community and solid real estate investment.

IMG_7862Are you interested in moving to an energized area focused on progress?  There are charming properties close to downtown, luxury apartments near the new train station, mature established neighborhoods, beautiful  new subdivisions of single family homes, and new upscale Townhome projects all offering their own unique benefits. Attleboro truly offers homes for all lifestyles!

IMG_7961I, of course, take great pride in selling our new construction projects  – Brigham Hill Estate, Flynn Terrace, and Ides Hill Commons – but, “new” does not always appeal to everyone.   There are so many great established neighborhoods offering a variety of home styles at a variety of price points.

I’d love to help you explore all that Attleboro has to offer.  Give  call, text, or e-mail anytime and let me know if you are thinking about buying, what price range you would like to target, and general criteria for you new home (i.e. bedrooms, bathrooms, garage, yard, location, style, etc.).  I’ll do a little research and get right back to you.  Happy to give recommendations for mortgage officers and banks if you need help getting started with financing as well.

And, certainly, if you are thinking about selling – let me know!!  I have countless buyers searching for the right home in Attleboro.  Buyers are out looking and ready to buy!

Respect, Reputation, & Referrals

New Year 2016No doubt, now that the New Year is upon us,
real estate will become a hot topic of conversation.
It could be talking about purchasing a new home, bragging about a deal someone got on their new home, shock at what a neighbor’s home just sold for,
or what an amazing mortgage interest rate someone just locked in on their refinance.  You will hear it all!

If by chance you come upon a friend or family member talking about buying or selling their home, please know I love (and so appreciate!!) referrals.  I am honored to have had such a wonderful year working with amazing buyers and sellers.  My biggest achievement in 2015 was that the majority of my business came from referrals.  photo (24).JPGClients who have worked with me and closed on their homes have shared their positive experiences with friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, and customers.  Even my clients who were active in the purchase, selling, or building process have passed along my contact information.

In addition to what I personally offer my clients, I also understand that successful real estate transactions are a group effort. Over the years, I have collected a great team of mortgage officers, attorneys, home inspectors, and contractors.   I have also established myself among my fellow real estate professionals as someone who is respected, eager to work hard, and ready to communicate throughout the process to the benefit of all parties.  My reputation is my brand and I am committed to maintaining my brand! I want buyers, sellers, investors, builders, and  Realtors to feel confident when they see my name associated with a transaction.

Truly, there is no better compliment than to be trusted to empower others to achieve their real estate goals.  Call, text, or e-mail anytime… Believe me, I am ready to put my experience, patience, and perseverance to work for you or anyone you may know!

The Kitchens of Flynn Terrace

Amazing the transformations that can occur in these Flynn Terrace units even during my two hour open house… Check out the kitchens in Units 24, 23, & 22.

Unit 24 – Buyers reserved their unit early and got to choose cabinets, flooring, granite, and appliances.  They did a great job!

 

Unit 23 – Builder put together this kitchen. Darker stained cabinets, silver gray tile floor, warm granite, and tile backsplash with glass accent.

Unit 21 – Buyer of this end unit selected an off white cabinet with caramel colored glaze and continued the wood floors into her kitchen. Granite templates were done yesterday so counter tops should be coming soon!!
Unit 21

No lights yet in Units 21 & 23 so photos don’t really highlight the true beauty of these kitchens. However, they are easy to show if you’d like to check them out in person!

Just give a little notice, I am usually not too far away. Best way to reach me is my cell 508-930-5259 (call or text, either is fine!). (And don’t worry, Unit 22 has not been forgotten. Floors are going in with cabinets to follow soon!)
 
If you happen to prefer a single family home, drop my Open House at 1158 Park Street in Attleboro Sunday (Dec 21)  from 11am-1pm.  Look for signs on Park Street about a half mile from LaSallette, home is then down the private way with three other homes.  Tucked away on a half acre lot, this quality built new home is Up & Ready and a pleasure to show!
