Granite Kitchen Brighton

19 Colliston #10 in Brighton

condo cleveland circleIf you’ve ever spend an evening driving around Cleveland Circle looking for parking, you may have come by a quiet  corner you didn’t realize existed.  What a treat to find such a picturesque spot in Brighton, where Lanark and Colliston meet.  Just on the Brookline line, steps from Beacon Street, a hop and skip to the Englewood T station.

19 Colliston Road is part of a two building association, with a classically austere pre-war architecture.  Yet the condos themselves always surprise you with a cheerful foyer and sense of spaciousness.  Whoever planned this building thought long and hard to ensure every unit gets plenty of sunlight.

Unit #10 is in exceptional condition, with an updated granite kitchen, tile bath, and a layout that will make you feel you are a little richer than you really are.  The high ceilings, hardwood floors and balcony make for a complete and charming package.

Storage is excellent; You will find a custom “California” closet in the bedroom, linen closet, coat closet, and pantry all in the unit.  There is a bonus storage space in the basement, where you will also find the laundry facility.

Price $289,000

OPEN HOUSE SUNDAY 12/14/2014 11.30-1PM

Your Online Resources for Brookline and Newton Real Estate

To this day I get phone calls on a couple of listings I had five or six years ago in Brighton.  This is not intentional bait-and-switch marketing, it usually catches me off guard.  On these calls I ask where they learned about the listing.  The answer is one of two websites, which I won’t mention.

There are several sites  promising listing information, but they are useless.  Worse than useless, they’ll suck-up your time.  In your Newton, Brookline or Brighton property search, use the following resources.

1.    Realtor.com.  The Realtor website is a premier stop for everything real estate.  It is linked to the Multiple Listing Services so information is current.  Once you put in your search criteria, make sure you scroll down past the ads of “featured properties.”  They are not part of your search results.  The drawback is it’s not local enough so if you want to find some area information and articles, this is not the place.

2.    Boston.com.  For open house information, and all local real estate information, Boston.com has proven itself.  It is one of the most used local real estate sites in the United States.  You’ll see the photos and have some community information, videos, maps, etc.  Again, scroll down past the ads.  Nothing against the ads, but they are not part of your search results.

3.    Your agent’s Multiple Listing Service (MLS).  This is the best.  You’ll receive your updates by email daily, what’s new to market and price reductions.  You can log on and have access to all the same information I have, delete the listings you don’t like, write comments, ask questions and request showings.  On your agent’s MLS you will see the pictures and also have access to a tour, video, and related documents such as a floor plan.

If you are serious about your search, daily email is critical.  You’ll learn about price reductions (my favorite piece of information).  You’ll learn about a property now in your price range when it was not previously.

What about the homes that don’t make it into MLS?  This is a tiny percent of the market.  Most for sale by owners in Brookline and Newton are on the MLS.  If you’ve hired a buyer’s agent, he or she should be checking Craig’s list regularly as well.

Even if you are just casually looking at real estate, or starting a serious search, please please please use good sources of information so you are not wasting your time.  Listing information is easy to obtain and it is free.  Ensure it is from an accurate and reputable source.
