If you're like the rest of us here in the Boston area, you just want to find a way to cool off this holiday weekend. For your viewing pleasure, here are some fabulous homes for sale in the Boston suburbs with inground pools.
Welcome to the Award-Winning Boston Suburbs Real Estate Blog
This weekend I accompanied a client to an open house in Hopkinton that was clearly going to result in multiple offers on the home. The home was in a great location and in a desirable neighborhood. The home was abuzz with activity, and there were a handful of potential buyers out in the yard, deep in conversation with their buyer’s agents discussing bidding strategies. It’s a great situation for the home seller. But once the flurry is over, how do they pick from among all these offers? And how to they know which offer will be most likely to go through?
Each week I'm pleased to feature a neighborhood in the Boston suburbs that I love. This week I'm highlighting Charlesview Estates, a pretty neighborhood located off Rt 85 in Hopkinton.
Yesterday I wrote about some of the most desirable neighborhoods in Hopkinton among relocating professionals. But you don't need to be a high-powered executive to afford to live in Hopkinton. Here are three of my favorite Hopkinton neighborhoods with a more affordable price tag. (Well, affordable for the Boston suburbs anyway! :-)

Where can you rent a piano?, I found myself asking this morning. That's just one little bit of detail involved with my very-first endeavor into hosting a fundraising soiree.
