    Imagine the possibilities!  If you are looking for space and privacy with the quality and convenience of new construction then this is the home for you.  63 North Street in Groton MA is a beautiful colonial situated on a private lot that abuts conservation land, with 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and a two-car garage. Built by a prominent local builder, this home, due for completion in Spring 2020, gives buyers the opportunity to custom design their own finishes.

    These photos have been virtually staged to show some of the options for furnishing and living in this home.  Using the exclusive Sotheby’s International Realty app Curate, buyers can easily see how different decor styles and arrangements would work in each room.  It allows potential buyers to truly visualize themselves in the home – make sure you download the app to your phone before touring this property.

    The second floor has a master bedroom with a large walk-in closet and a master bath, and 3 additional bedrooms.  There is also potential to add further finished space in the bedroom. 

    Close to the Dunstable line for good access to commuting routes, this home also benefits from the excellent schools that Groton enjoys, including schools in the popular Groton -Dunstable Public School District as well as the Nashoba Valley Technical High School and two well-renowned Prep Schools – Groton School and Lawrence Academy.  Groton is also home to over 100 miles of walking trails to explore the beautiful surroundings.

      December Market Snapshot

      December can be a busy month in real estate as people try to close out the year. 2019 was no exception - across almost all local towns the number of sales was up, homes continued to move quickly and sales prices increased year over year.

      In Winchester there was a huge increase in the number of homes sold compared to last December.  Prices were up and homes were spending fewer days on market.

      Arlington followed a similar pattern, with prices up, days to offer down and more properties sold than the previous year.

      Melrose also had a fast moving market, with an average of only 16 days from listing to accepted offer.  There was also a jump in the number of homes sold, although prices dipped slightly year over year.

      House prices continued to rise year over year in Medford, possibly fueled by fewer homes on the market than the previous year.

      Woburn also saw a dip in the number of listings sold compared to last December, and at the same time the days to offer and days on market shortened dramatically, perhaps because of the lack of housing stock available.

      What does all of that mean for your 2020 plans? Talk to one of our experienced agents to get a more in-depth analysis of the current market and how it affects your situation.
