Welcome back everybody time to check out what is on the market here in Carver I’m joined by my friends McGeough and Lamacchia of Lamacchia Realty , thanks for being with us gentlemen.
I hear you had a little incident getting here this morning.
Yeah we were in a rush, was a little dazed so not good combination.
GPS fell off the windshield.
I’m sure, blame it on him.
Yes it was my fault.
Let’s talk a little bit about Carver here, tell us something about the town.
The average price for a single family is $217,000 the average price for a condo is 190,000. We left out multi families because there aren’t very many of them. The population is about 11,000. This is another town with very affordable home prices.
Very affordable and a beautiful small quiet little town if I do say so. Let’s talk about our first house here.
Sure this is your kind of traditional cape, 2 bed and one and a half baths, the address is 6 Cranberry Road, it’s on for $250,000, a little under 2000 square feet, so it’s very deceiving, it’s got 2 beds but you can expand because it has a 3 bedroom septic, I know how you’re always excited about septics.
Yes I do get excited about that.
It’s got a half cathedral home so it’s very open, it’s got exposed beams so it has a lot of traditional styles built into it, real nice home it’s got a stone walkway, nice patio in the back, very nicely done.
So it’s really a unique cape, not many capes have that open, cathedral ceiling, with the exposed beams
It looks like it might have been something else before and they converted it.
You could almost say it’s like a saltbox cape—look at this, a dragonfly flew by.
Live TV what are you gonna do!
Certainly a nice place, 2 big skylights. Nice one I’m going to talk about is 44 Myles Standish Drive, it’s on for $390,000, it’s a 2500 square foot colonial 2 car garage above ground pool, best thing about this house is it has a lot of nice features. The family room is enormous, look at the size of that family room.
You could have a serious party in there! Gas fireplace, real nice hardwood floors, fenced in yard, like I said it’s got the pool, a real nice home and it’s only on for $390,000, really nice place.
So somewhat affordable, those floors are gleaming!
They are gleaming!
And you know I love a good island in the kitchen we can’t forget to talk about that
Absolutely and it was built in 1998, so it’s only 14 years old.
Probably somewhat energy efficient
I would think so
Ok let’s talk about our third house here this morning
Last but not least, this is our 14th Zip Trip and we’ve done about 10 new construction developments and this is a great one as well, it’s a 21 unit development it’s on 22 Redtail Lane, it’s on for $469,000, and you know I’m giving the builder a lot of credit as we’ve done in the past, I mean, the market is tighter than it’s been, but the price points are very reasonable, and we’re seeing a higher quality product than we’ve seen in the past, this one is decked out with Anderson windows and doors, it’s got the crown molding, it’s got the higher end kitchen, your island of course, biggest thing I wanted to point out is as you can see from one of the pictures, they’ve retained a tremendous amount of the trees, so when you go into it, it looks like it’s an already established neighborhood, which costs more instead of just clear cutting, once again a great opportunity and it’s on for $469,000.
Do you see a lot of new construction around here?
We don’t, but when we see it, it’s higher quality, reasonably priced, and they really just go through and they’re not as cookie cutter as we saw back in ’05 and early 2000s.
Right when they were just throwing them up
People were buying them because of so much demand. The point John made about the trees that might sound like something small but it’s really not because what a lot of builders do is they buy 50 acres, clear the whole thing, because it’s easier to move the machines around and they didn’t do that here they put a lot of thought into it cleared out the trees that needed to go left the ones that could stay and the place looks really nice.
People that own a home know that a good mature tree is very important, you need shade and you want all that stuff around your house.
And it makes for a more cozy neighborhood that feels like it’s been there
You don’t have to wait 30 or 40 years to get shade.
Very true, all right gentlemen, that is a nice look at what is on the market here in Carver, we appreciate it have a wonderful weekend guys.[/toggle_content]
