Are you thinking about selling your home and buying a bigger, better home that’s currently on the market? Recent evidence suggests you may be in for a rough ride in finding a listed home that meets the needs of you and your family.
That’s because right now there’s a decreased inventory of homes on the market here in Massachusetts, the Worcester Telegram & Gazette (T&G) reported recently. According to Zillow.com, there were 27 percent fewer homes on the market in June 2013 than there were just one year earlier, the T&G noted. The article pointed out that in today’s market would-be buyers—that would mean you!—can’t be as picky as you could be in a more robust buyer’s market.
This time of year a cool, dry basement can provide much needed respite from the hot, muggy summer air! Plus, dwelling, at least part of the time, in the cellar can be a way to enjoy ample, usable living space.
