It's finally happening; that perfect Boston condo is becoming your new home. Now the fun really begins as you pack away your old life in preparation for the new.

But, before diving nose-first into those packing boxes, take some time to plan how you will pack -- and move -- to make the process much easier.

Pack necessities separately: Before packing anything else, pack a suitcase with anything you'll need for the week before and after your move. This will keep you from having to rummage through packed boxes or tear through the ones you're not ready to address yet.

Condos sales in Boston 2014

Like many other real estate markets nationwide, the Boston Condo Sales market was on fire in the first quarter of 2014. Prices were up a staggering 22% compared to 2013! We are consistently seeing multiple offers, and properties selling at or above asking prices. If you're a buyer, it's an extremely difficult time, as supply is tight, and demand is high. If you search Boston Condos for Sale inventory, there are currently 597 properties available, which is down roughly 7.5% from the same time last year. Spring is prime selling season for Boston real estate, but unless inventory increases drastically, the bidding wars will not end for several months or even longer.

Contrary to the data, I don't think it's realistic for a seller to think their home or

Search Weston homes for sale over $1million

In many communities, inventory is still down, and prices continue to rise. One perfect example of this is in one of Boston's most expensive neighborhoods. Not only is inventory down 10%, but 98% of Weston Homes for Sale are priced over $1Million. Granted Weston is one of Boston's most luxurious suburbs, so it's expected that prices would be higher than many other neighborhoods, but there is only 1 house in Weston under a million out of 60 houses currently on the market. Is this healthy for the Weston housing market, or is it just making it more difficult for new families to move to one of Boston's most desirable suburbs?

Terrier Real Estate Testimonials

Choosing a Realtor® is one of the most important steps to ensuring your real estate transaction - whether buying, selling or investing - is as smooth and successful as possible. Many families and individuals overlook this step by simply hiring their brother’s friend from college, their uncle’s ex-wife or the guy whose face is on the park bench down the road from their office.
