Whatcha Got?

By Dave Fratello | March 22nd, 2012
If you're reading regularly, you know that real estate inventory in MB has been tight for months. Too many buyers, too few options.
The blog author, Dave Fratello, also represents several buyers who are among those looking. These are very well-qualified buyers and great families who just aren't finding what they need.

So we're just going to straight-up ask: Have you got something our buyers might want?

MBC's readership includes hundreds of local homeowners, residents and agents, not to mention plenty of people monitoring our market for the possibility of buying in some day.

So who can help us connect the great families we know with the homes they're looking for?

Here is an overview of our clients' Wanted Properties:

MB Trees: 4-5br, ~3000 sq. ft., good location, with a real yard. Value $1.5m-$1.9m. Grand View district a plus, or near Martyrs/downtown.
Sand Section Plateau (400 blocks, 27th-34th St.): Large home (5br and about 4000 sq. ft.), value in the range of ~$1.8-$2.3+. Elevator a plus. 
Tree Section near Sand Dune (500-700 blocks): Large, newer home with 5br and 3300+ sq. ft.; more is better (large family). Separate office and/or media room a big plus. Value up to ~$2.4m.
