Another Satisfied Homebuyer: Congratulations to the New Owners of 979 Union Street, Rockland, MA
What a way to start off the New Year! Congratulations to my clients who closed on the purchase of their home on New Year's Eve!
These first time home buyers were a referral from prior clients. They contacted me in the fall after their casual house-hunting led them to a house that they really liked. They realized they wanted representation through the process and a reference from a friend brought them to me.
The first house turned out not to be the right one. So we started a full-on search. These buyers, however, were NOT looking for a typical home. No cookie-cutter Colonial was going to suffice. They loved older homes, with lots of character, at least one acre of land (preferably more) and in need of some work so that they could make it their own.
Location was not as important, aside from reasonable commuting distance from work, so we expanded our search radius, which brought us to Rockland - a south shore town just a little bit outside of my usual area. With 979 Union Street, we found a circa. 1799 house, with five bedrooms, two bathrooms, 3 fireplaces, two staircases and an attached barn. All the rooms have beautiful wide plank floors.
It's a grand old home, with a lot of history. Some updates had been done but others were needed. With 2.09 acres of land, this house had everything this not-so-typical first time buyers wanted!
Being an antique, it was not the right home for everyone - which was to my client's advantage. The house was originally listed in September 2012 at $429,000 but the price had been reduced to $349,900 when we viewed it this November. The final sales price was $325,000.
Congratulations and Happy New Year to my newest homeowners!
