Congratulations, you bought a Berkshires property! That’s something to celebrate…right? Right?! Well, unfortunately, not every buyer feels like popping bubbly after they’ve closed on their Berkshires residence. “The grass is always greener” mentality may set in right after you shake hands with the sellers and part ways. Or right after you have made an offer on that Berkshire land or residence. Maybe it’s after the chandelier has dulled its shine, or the fireplace has lost its spark. Whatever the cause, second thoughts are so common that it they have become known as “Home Buyer’s Remorse”. So, what to do if you’ve signed the dotted line but wish you hadn’t? We have some ideas for you.
The broader picture for all of Berkshire County tells a similar story. There are presently 4 pending sales in the Berkshires that are listed over $1 million (no guarantee they all will sell over the $1 million dollar listing price). So far as of this date we have 7 total sales in 2019 over $1 million dollars. This leaves a total of 113 Berkshire County MLS properties as active listings in the price range at or above $1.5M. The total number of sales over $1 million last year (2018) was 23 for all of Berkshire County.
Get ready for winter. For owners of Berkshire homes that will be vacant over the coming winter months, it is strongly advised that an individual or service company be hired to routinely check on the home or condo to insure everything remains in working order.
There are currently 15 pending sales ranging in list price from $115,000 to $899,000 in Williamstown Massachusetts. Located in Northern Berkshire County easily accessible to The Clark, Williams College and MCLA.

What he didn't [...]
