It is a go for Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen’s New Mansion

ap_people_brady_bundchen
According to Laura Raposa at The Herald, Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen are still going through the red tape and permissions to build a 7,465-square-foot main house; a 1,675-square-foot cottage for the help; and a 1,342-square-foot yoga studio in Brookline’s slice of Chestnut Hill. It seems they still need a waiver on the Yoga studio as their is a 150-square-foot limit on so-called accessory buildings.

It seems all that stands in their way now are the neighbors and of course the
zoning commission. If all is approved,  it will all be a go, with of course some modifications.

What is the Difference Between a House Inspector and an Appraiser.

boston-inspectionAn inspector is usually a building contractor or specialist. They should be hired by the purchaser to “inspect” the structure, plumbing, electrical and roofing to insure that the house being purchased is in good working and safe condition. Any defects must be disclosed and or repaired.

An appraiser is licensed under the state real estate commission and inspects appraiserand evaluates the house and property that is to be purchased for the Lender. This is done by measuring the square footage, while taking into consideration special features of the home and then using comparable sales of the same type of house or condo in a similar neighborhood to come up with the true value.  This is the final word on the true value of the property and will determine the loan amount of the mortgage.

I am Relocating: How are Real Estate Transactions handled in Boston?

Of course the first step is to have one of our experienced Boston Realtors help you find the property of your dreams. Once you find the property, then you make your legal offer and before you know it,your will be at closing. In Massachusetts, thus in Boston, the sale of all property is handled by real estate attorneys. Your Boston Luxe Realtor can refer you to an experienced firm.

closingAt closing the buyers and sellers, their attorneys and agents as well as the lender’s attorney are all present. At this time, the funds deposited are usually handled by the listing broker or the seller’s attorney and are held in an “escrow” account. Sometimes the buyer’s broker or buyer’s attorney may hold the deposit. These deposits are accounted for at closing and the buyers receive  credit on the closing settlement statement.
