Welcome to Centers and Squares
As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.
Are you hoarding light bulbs?
And maybe you should too if you’re thinking of selling your house or condo in the future.
Those new fangled lightbulbs – the squiggly ones – are a bummer if you’re trying to sell your place. They’re dim and they take too long to light up.
When you’re selling your place you want it to read as bright and cheery. Dim bulbs just won’t do. And seconds count – if a light has to be turned on and it takes too long to brighten up you’ve already lost your chance with those buyers. “Bright and sunny” is towards the top of most buyers’ wish lists.
Supposedly some of these energy efficient bulbs will match the light of the “regular” bulbs. It’s not true in my experience and I’m not about to do a lot of research before I buy lightbulbs.
So before the traditional light bulbs are phased out I’ll keep buying lots of them every time I’m at the store. Even if you’ve switched over to the new lightbulbs it’s a really good idea to stash away enough to replace them all when it’s time to sell. You’ll be the brightest house on the block!
