Extraordinary home on Parsons Hill.

18 Parsons Hill Road Wenham, MA

Built in 2001 and beautifully upgraded and maintained this Parsons Hill home is a stand out in a neighborhood of similarly styled homes. It has a prime location and landscaping that enhances the privacy of the yard. The sellers spent many years caring for and improving the property and chose high quality materials, including authentic blue stone for the patio, handcrafted Spanish cedar shutters for the exterior windows and genuine granite stones for the impressive great room hearth.

The location lends itself to easy highway access and also an option for the commuter rail system in a town without many options for this type of home and neighborhood location.

It possesses many often desired and requested features including central air conditioning, wood floors, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. As well as a classic style with four bedrooms, two full and one half bath and a fabulous kitchen that flows into the spacious family room with vaulted ceilings. The owners also invested in custom bookcases for the lower-level library, a bespoke garden shed for the side yard, and an antique dresser customized for the guest bath vanity.  Premium Wenge wood blinds and sewn-to-order Dupioni silk roman shades adorn the first floor windows, while extra-thick plantation shutters add refinement to the windows of all four bedrooms.

Maintain the equity in your home

24 Matthies Street Beverly, MA

We find that oftentimes people don’t give enough thought to maintaining and increasing the equity  in their homes, until they’ve called upon us to help them sell it! From the moment home ownership is taken the impact of improvements and revisions should always be in the forefront of the decision making equation to increasing and maintaining home equity.  We advise our clients that even if they don’t think they will ever sell, they should still be mindful of, and prepared for that possibility. A tempting unexpected opportunity may come along, or life circumstances may change, and suddenly a decision is made to sell. It is at this pivotal point that the homeowner would understandably like to get as much return as possible on their valuable asset. Even if people think they are in their lifelong home, they may want to pass the potential equity on to someone else. Another incentive to maintaining and increasing home equity is to be able to take advantage of refinancing opportunities or to borrow additional money against the value of  their home, which would need to appraise adequately in order qualify for the loan.

Below are just a few things to consider with regard to maintaining home equity: (more…)
