As a Realtor and 10-year resident of Framingham, MA I have had the privilege of learning a lot about what the Town has to offer.  It all became abundantly clear recently as a co-worker and I met with an employee of the Framingham Public Library who is establishing a Welcomers Center within the library for new residents.  She asked us, "As realtors, what would you tell someone who was new to town about Framingham?"  We spent the next 20 minutes rattling off all the wonderful things that Framingham offers.  In no particular order, below are many.  Abundance of restaurants - Too many to list.  Everything from chains to specialty and ethnic foods.Abundance of stores - Too many to list.  Everything from chains, malls, and specialty stores.Colleges - Framingham State College, Mass Bay Communi...

Home Financing For Everyone No matter how badly the buyer wants to buy or the seller wants to sell there's usually no deal unless a lender provides the money. Most of the responsibility for arranging that falls on the buyer and what loan criteria they satisfy. The good news is that home financing comes in all shapes and sizes. All loans require a measure of four lending criteria. Put simply, these criteria are: collateral (the property itself), capacity (a borrower’s income), capital (down-payment and cash in the bank) and character (credit scores). A good realtor helps you with the first: finding a good investment; a desirable property. The latter three criteria are those that are most in the borrower’s court. The interesting part about obtaining financing is that a borrower doesn’t ha...
