I’ve owned this house since early 2001; the prior owners, the Mancusos, lived in it for 47 years. It’s been well-maintained and the neighbors are wonderful. I’m hoping to not go through a realtor, so be aware of that and decide if you’re comfortable with a private sale.

  • I will hire a real estate attorney to make sure all the paperwork is in order on my end; you will need to take appropriate measures for your own side of the deal.
  • Price will include discounts for some needed updates (like upstairs carpet, basement trim, etc.)
  • I strongly prefer that you are pre-approved for financing.
  • My ideal closing date is around August 1.
