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.
Real Estate In The Berkshire

The most common real estate listing contract in Massachusetts is an "exclusive right to sell" agreement. Under an "exclusive right to sell" agreement the listing broker is given the right to earn a fee for professional services if the property is sold by anyone, including to a buyer located solely through the efforts of the owner.
Buying Berkshire County Lenox or Stockbridge real estate is most cost-effective when the owner plans on staying put for at least a few years. If you’re uncertain of your future and cannot commit to one location for a few years, buying a home may not be the smartest move.
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.
The River Houses at Cable Mills will provide all new construction, allowing for a wonderful opportunity to add custom upgrade options prior to completion.
New construction is equated with new appliances and energy systems and therefore lower utility bills. A newly built home also requires less maintenance as everything is new, which often can translate to lower maintenance costs overall.
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.
