Buyers ISO of Charm & Character

This will be a fun  home search that will take some patience
but a great couple so I know it will be worth it!!

This set of buyers is in search of a  home with tons of character and charm preferring pre-1960 and willing to go back all of the way to 1740s.

369-oldpost-rdThey definitely want a large lot – thinking 1+ acres – or even the illusion of a large lot if they found a home that abutted conservation/park/etc.  Currently they are living in a bungalow in a cute downtown neighborhood which was a nice place to start but now feeling too congested for them.   They are craving space, trees, and privacy.  Being close to a busy road won’t work for them. Antique lovers know homes built “back in the day” were purposefully located close to the road so quiet set-backs are not always easy to come by but, I found my antique colonial set back off the road so I know it’s possible.

Iantique-colonial-fireplacen terms of the home itself, they would like at least three bedrooms, minimum of two baths, a garage if possible, and charm, charm, charm (cookie cutter is just not going to do it for them.)  Some sort of “out” building or separate studio that could be used as a home office would be great – but even a separate space in the house could have potential.  She works from home and would like a feel of going to the office and then leaving it behind when done for the day.

60-short-st-tauntonFor location, they would like to be within 30-40 minutes of Providence.

Do you happen to know anyone in  Southeastern Massachusetts interested in selling a home like this?

We will be ready to get back to the house hunting in January so spread the word…

Bring back the walls!

We are entering a new era of home architecture and floor plans… gone is the strong popular desire for completely open concept homes.  Homeowners are now asking for more walls!

With advances in technology, more and more of the workforce is spending their day away from the corporate office.   Mobile technology has actually increased the need for private spaces where professionals can stay connected to their companies and clients without interference from others around them.  Almost half of my current buyer client base is asking for a private office space in their new home.  (I also have a lot of families planning ahead and searching for split levels or other floor plans that offer living on separate levels as both kids and parents get older.)

24 BH kitchen island to family rmThat said, life still happens at home!  Open concept kitchens with dining areas and huge islands are still great for resale… not to mention family chats, homework, cooking, entertaining, and relaxing.  We have built some amazing kitchens in our custom new construction by WB Construction at Brigham Hill Estates.  Let me know if I can get your more information on this premier subdivision!  Phase II lots are open now and foundations are going in… very exciting!!

2 Hemlock Way, North Attleboro **SOLD! **

SOLD!2 hemlock

2 Hemlock Way
North Attleboro, MA

$430,000

For Katie and Jay who had been searching for a 4BR, 2.5BA Colonial with great space, in great condition, in a great neighborhood… their search is now officially over!  They stopped by my Open House and immediately knew it was the one.  Congratulations to them and the sellers … Katie and Jay are now the owners of 2 Hemlock Way.

2 HemlockI also sold 2 Hemlock 6 years ago at my first Open House on Father’s Day.  We received five offers that day and it was under agreement the next.  No matter what type of market you are in, if you have a well maintained home, price it competitively, and market it right… it will sell.
And, it will sell fast!

 There is a sad part to this story, three other couples also fell in love with this home that first weekend on the market … multiple offers are great for getting solid buyers and a solid price, but making the call to say “you didn’t get it” is so hard!!  If you think you have a similar home you’d like to sell, please let me know.  I’d love to find the buyers who missed out on 2 Hemlock another wonderful place to call “Home”.  Give a call/text 508-930-5259 or e-mail jen.mcmorran@gmail.com to chat about your home and what you are thinking about for your next move.

Hey Mom – I’m putting a star up on my star chart!

This is why I work hard and how I want 
my buyers and sellers to feel at the end of every transaction. Thanks Kyle!

191 Tiffany Working with Jen was a pleasure. She assisted us in first buying our new house and again a month later as our selling agent for our condo. She had great insight into the local market and quickly understood what we were looking for in a new house.

14 Dailey outside
As a seller’s agent, Jen did an excellent job with our listing. Here her research and expertise led to an initial listing price higher than I would have done, but it resulted in a showing and ultimately an offer on the first day…

I would highly recommend Jen to anyone looking for or selling a house. She was very responsive and helpful during the entire process.  (Kyle R.)

Jen McMorran Head Shot (2)Please feel free to share my contact information with anyone you know who may be thinking about buying or selling.  It would be my pleasure to assist your friends, neighbors, co-workers, or family members with their next move.
