The Signs Point Up

For a sure sign that the demand and value of real estate continues to climb, look no further than downtownCIMG4227 Plymouth.

After 15 years in the building, the partners of the McKenna law firm decided to sell their historic property at 249 South Main Street. With true-to-period renovations, including panoramic windows and warm oak floors and trim, the 3,500 square feet of office space on three floors is inviting and gracious, but also practical.

Steve Valli of the Thomas Duke Company designed a marketing plan that allowed this gem of a building to shine. And buyers responded. Steve was able to present the sellers with several offers, and they were able to choose the one with the most advantageous price and terms.

The winning buyer applied for a loan and, with Steve assisting the lender, the appraiser, the environmental consultant, and the seller, closed the deal 58 days after signing the purchase agreement—a timeline unheard of in the past 5 years and another sure sign of a market on the rise.

The buyers whose offers weren’t accepted? They’re still looking for real estate to purchase.

Maybe your Plymouth/Canton area property is the one they’re looking for. If you’ve been waiting for the market to improve before selling, now may be the time you’ve been waiting for.svalli@thomasduke.com.
