Stow is one of the most beautiful towns west of Boston and the video above shows three properties that my buyer clients including first-time buyers, move-up buyers, and active adults/55+ purchased over the summer.
So what did they buy in Stow? The first home shown, a classic 4 bedroom colonial-style, was purchased by first-time buyers who wanted quiet and privacy and land. They were happy to trade off granite counters and stainless steel appliances for a quiet location and a gorgeous acre lot!
The house needs some updating but the purchase price was under-budget and they are willing and able to do some work to have a place they can call home for many years to come!
The second photo is a new development for seniors/55+ that includes attached and detached townhouses with first-floors master suites, full basements, and 2 car-garages. The buyers are moving to Stow to be closer to their grandchildren in Concord. They are happy to have their own buyer agent helping navigate the buying process and help them get to know the area.

The third house is nicely updated expanded split-level home also on an acre lot with a gorgeous backyard. These move-up buyers who sold their townhouse in Maynard were willing to trade a neighborhood location for a more main road to get the amount of interior space and outdoor area they want for entertaining fiends and family!
