I’m joined this morning by John McGeough and Anthony Lamacchia of Lamacchia Realty as we do every week to sample some of the real estate in the lovely town we’re visiting and of course we are in Easton this morning. And we want to get an idea of what’s out there first let’s get an idea of what we’re dealing with here the average house price here.
Average price of a single family home in Easton is about $385,000 and the average price of a condominium is about $165,000, they’re both affordable the condo is very affordable great town for a first time buyer.
Any idea what size town we’re talking about here?
What size town? As far as population? I think it’s somewhere around 10,000 John?
No actually I think it’s more than that, more like 22,000.
We were talking about that just the other day, I couldn’t’ remember
All right well let’s get a little bit of an idea of what kind of properties are out there who’s going to starting us off today?
Yeah I’ll start us off, I mean once again we’ve been highlighting a lot, week after week, new construction so we’re going to start off with a fabulous new subdivision, 44 single family homes it’s on Winterberry Lane and the developer is Creative Homes. Once again you’ll see from the pictures: there’s great detail, flexible sizes, the price ranges are 369,000 all the way up to mid 500s. What we like about this development is they’re selling out very quickly so there’s a huge demand for them, phase 1 sold out in 8 months and phase 2 now is starting off with 28 homes so great detail.
It’s got a beautiful open floor plan
Yeah once again great floor plan, highly energy efficient, they’re utilizing the stretch code which is the higher efficiency rating so we really love this new development.
Absolutely beautiful I like that one. All right house number two is that you?
Yes this is a condominium it’s on 10 Nancy Road, it’s listed at 170,000 it’s a two bedroom one and a half bathroom condominium, and a nice complex they’ve got a swimming pool, tennis courts, exercise room, nice place very fair condo fee, perfect place for a first time buyer.
I mean you’re paying, what, 700 dollars a month for a mortgage?
And you’ve got all the amenities
Yes. All the amenities and like John said, the affordability is fantastic, you compare this to rents which are on their way up, it’s more affordable to buy a place like this.
As long as you can afford the down payment. All right let’s get to house number three before we go here.
Last but not least 25 Squantum Ave, it’s a little more traditional home, you’ve got a brick front Colonial, 3 beds 3 and a half baths, large house though it’s over 3000 square feet, 2 car garage, love the location of this home, you can walk to parks, walk to schools, in a very nice neighborhood, not too open of a floor plan it’s a little more traditional, which I like as well, so great home for a family and very good price point under half a million dollars, at $489,000.
You got a good sampling for us today; you’ve got a traditional, a condo, and a new construction with an open floor plan. Thank you gentlemen we appreciate it as always, get to some of the real estate here in Easton
