Did you miss out on this place last Spring? If so, now is your chance to get a great place in a really great location. The current, wonderful tenant has been lightly living in this townhouse and it still feels like when she took it over. At that time, this sunny end unit had just […]
A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words – And a Sniff?
With a quick read of the MLS listing, you will know – it’s bank owned, being sold “as-is,” it’s vacant, has an unfinished basement, says you will need cash or a “rehab” loan and to look in the document folder for information about the septic system.

It’s also nice to feel connected to the community with the view of the grassy common area. You will never feel isolated wondering what is […]
