New Construction: Buyers are entitled (and you deserve) to have your own buyer agent represent you when you purchase new construction. However, your agent/broker MUST accompany you to the sales office the first time you visit. As tempting as it is to just pop in and look around, if you do that, you will have to buy from the agent at the office and as nice as that agent may be, remember they work for the builder and not you! Having your own agent on your side will help you get the best deal.

The Story of 42 Great Lake Drive, Sudbury MA

On a freezing cold day in December 2003, a very smart young couple called to see the house for sale at 42 Great Lake Drive in Sudbury. Back then, it was a four-room cottage with a tiny bath, lots of knotty-pine paneling and a refrigerator on the back porch. They loved the corner lot and the location in Sudbury and had the vision to see what they could do to make this their home. 

Ten years and 3 kids later, they are ready to move on and this beautifully renovated and expanded Colonial is ready for new owners who they hope will be as happy as they have been! 

Click the photo to see what they've done and please share with your friends. Everything has been done; all they need to do is move in! 

Beautiful Colonial with everything you'll want in your new home in Sudbury!
