You'll walk out your door into the heart of Union Square in Somerville

If value and location are tops on your real estate wish list you'll want to check out my new listing this weekend. 17A Everett Street in Somerville is a 1-2 bedroom condo in the heart of Union Square Somerville new to the market at $189,000.  The condo needs buffing up and elbow grease but a buyer with vision will reap the rewards of a smart real estate buy. It's the proverbial diamond in rough in a location that's getting more and more popular as the Green Line extension nears and many new businesses open in the square. The first-floor, 765 sq.ft. condo has a private entrance and eat-in kitchen. Originally configured with one generously sized bedroom and a living room more than 20 feet in length, the condo is being used as a two-bedroom by dividing that living room.  It's a smart use of the space and with some finishing touches you'll be able to maximize the condo's potential. The association is 100% owner occupied, there's storage and common laundry in the basement, and the roof was replaced two years ago. For more info about 17A Everett Street in Somerville call me at 617-504-1737 or email me at centersandsquares@gmail.com.  Showings will take place at open houses this coming weekend on Saturday, Dec. 7 th from 11:30 to 1:00 and Sunday, Dec. 8th from noon to 1:30.

New Cambridge and Somerville Properties on Tour

It felt like we were in New Orleans yesterday on our weekly tour - awesomely hot and humid.  Though it's mid-summer the real estate market continues to hum and we had a great selection of new to the market Cambridge and Somerville properties on tour. Two of my favorites: A recently built single family house at 16 Churchill Ave in Cambridge was a real surprise.  We don't get to see many new construction single family houses in Cambridge.  Buyers will appreciate the open floor plan, gorgeous kitchen, first floor bedrooms, and direct access garage.  The house sparkles - even the garage floor gleams.  16 Churchill Ave is newly listed by Bill Patterson for $874,900. The location of 12 Elston Street in Somerville can't be beat - smack dab in Davis Square and just down the street from Porter Square.  It's a two-family with really nice original features and a third floor that's been  opened up with vaulted ceilings.  12 Elston Street Somerville is listed by Terry Drucker for $895,000 and sure to be popular. Wondering about how to navigate this market as a buyer or seller?  Give me a call - I'd love to help.  Liz Bolton, ReMax Destiny,  Cambridge - 617-504-1737. Here's what we saw on tour yesterday.  To get more info about these newly listed Cambridge and Somerville properties click on the small photo:
