You've been pondering this, discussing it with friends and family, but want more information on the market and what actually happens during your first home buying, but you're not quite sure where to get the answers? We at Charlesgate Realty Group can you help you!
We've been hosting a Boston Home Buyer Class for a few years now. It's free. And we discuss things such as:
• Renting vs. Buying: Whether it even makes sense for you to buy right now
• Homebuying process and timeline: How long it actually takes to buy
• Working with an agent: How it works and whether or not you really need one
• What mortgages are still available and how much cash you need to buy
• Using neighborhood level data (like discount ratios and real time trend graphs) to value properties
• Negotiating 101: How to craft your offer to drive a hard bargain!
• Top 10 online resources to aid your home search
It's very low key, we offer food and drinks before and afterward and it's a great way to learn about the Boston real estate market, ask questions that you may have regarding the process. In fact, our buyer agents stick around to answer any other questions you may have that we may not have hit upon during the class. The class is at 6pm on Tuesday September 20.

FEBRUARY 1, 2011 UPDATE: Due to popular demand (aka...selling out our first two sessions in January!) we're adding several more home buyer classes to our schedule. Please visit this page for the updated schedule.
We're hosting our first Boston Home Buyer class of 2011 on Tuesday, January 18th at 6:00pm (and due to demand, we just added our second class of the year on January 25 at 6pm). If you are thinking of buying a new home in Boston in the near future, there's no better place to learn the process than at our free, informal home buyer class.
Wow!! We got a good amount of toys this year for Toys for Tots with such short notice. I think we had around 40, give or take a few. We would just like to thank EVERYONE who contributed and took the time and effort to donate this year!!
Hey everyone!! It’s that time of the year again here at Charlesgate Realty Group! Drop off your toy donation at Charlesgate Realty Group and we will donate a toy for every rental or sale, or you can just come on by and drop off your toys. We're looking to beat last year's donation!! We donated over 50 toys last year! Every little bit helps!!
