[toggle_content title=”John and Anthony Discuss Homes for Sale in Abington”]
Welcome back everybody we continue the Zip Trip here from lovely Abington this morning we have a great crowd and I’m joined now by my friends Anthony Lamacchia and John McGeough of Lamacchia Realty as I am every week although I hear Gene did a fabulous job filling in for me last week.
Great job, but we missed you
Aw, well I missed you guys too but I’m back and we want to look a little bit of the property for sale here in Abington first let’s get some of the stats.
Yes single family average price is about $290,000, multi family average price is about $270,000 there’s not a lot of multi families here in Abington, but condos are at about $216,000 so everything’s in the 2s, so it’s a very affordable town, nice town though, nice homes, population is about 16,000 and one of the things that’s a real benefit to living in this town is if you work in Boston is the commuter rail.
Oh really ok, that’s good, easy access to the city.
Yes that’s a great thing and that’s obviously helped this town a lot.
And obviously family friendly, we see a lot of kids here today.
There’s a whole lot!
Ok let’s talk about house number one
Yeah this one fits right into that average price point so it’s about $219,000, it’s a town house so you get that single family feel but without all the maintenance, very nicely done, it’s 2 beds, 2 bath, nice open concept, it’s even got a heated garage.
I love that!
So this one fits in once again perfectly to that average price point, the interest rates are still so low that the affordability here is great
All right that sounds fantastic, I love a good open concept and I love the heated garage
You won’t’ need it today but hopefully you’ll need it in 6 months
We had too mild of a winter last winter so I’ll bet we’ll get–
Hey don’t curse us!
All right let’s talk about house number two
It’s 40 King Street in Abington, it’s on for $320,000 it’s about a 1600 square foot Cape. Now this is a unique Cape it’s got cathedral ceilings, skylights, nice big living room, fireplace, modern kitchen, and a nice big patio in the back, so it’s not your typical Cape it’s got that smaller feel it’s obviously much bigger good big lot and it’s a nice place.
That kitchen is beautiful–that huge island.
It’s got silestone counters it has, so a little bit unique there.
It’s another one where you go, what’s that, I don’t know!
I was going to ask but then I held my tongue!
I was waiting for you to ask.
You know by now that I’ll ask you.
I thought you were going to ask and I was going to say ask John he used to build houses.
That one is beautiful all right let’s talk about
It’s only listed for $319,000.
$319,000 ok let’s talk about our final house
This one is what we like to see in new construction. We’ve seen a real nice variety in Abington and this one is a 36 unit subdivision, 22 units have already been built, and I give the builder and the builder’s name and he deserves some credit is Richard Cullen from Smart Builders. He’s doing something that’s fairly unique, it’s not the cheapest way to build, they’re very customized, each home on the street looks unique, they look older so they’ve got a nice developed feel. The one I think we’re highlighting is an older looking colonial, but it’s brand new. It’s got unique ridgelines so the roof lines look a little more to the early 1900s, it’s over 2000 square feet so you’re still getting a good size home 4 beds, 2 full baths, I think 2 and a half baths, and the price range is still fairly affordable, it ranges from $489,000 all the way up to $679,000. Very efficient home, it’s got all the energy ratings, and once again he’s doing a fabulous job.
It’s nice because I think sometimes people’s pet peeve with those communities is that they’re super cookie cutter and this is not
That’s correct it’s very unique like when we drove in there it was, it looks established and you know the Joneses are not all the same and for us–as Anthony said when I used to build—that was something that was not the most cost effective way to do it but long term it’s a much better product
Well I was just going to say they’re putting out a much better product and one of the cool things that I like about it’s kind of a little thing but it’s got chimneys on each end of the house and that’s how they used to build houses a hundred years ago and it looks awesome
It looks awesome all right some very good options you guys, and they vary in price range, well here in Abington well there you have it a little sample of what’s on the market gentlemen we will see you next week.[/toggle_content]
