MRG named exclusive agent for All Things REAL ESTATE

A working relationship between two veteran real estate professionals signals a first important step in changing the way real estate is practiced here in Massachusetts.

Walter Hall, a Norwell resident and author with decades of real estate experience, today announced the release of the 4th edition of his book, All Things REAL ESTATE, as well as an exclusive arrangement with Brian Molisse, founder and owner of the four-location Molisse Realty Group. Hall and Molisse have created a pilot program designed to provide advanced training of real estate agents in the practice of their profession, as well as providing home buyers and sellers with the information they need to make the best possible sale or purchase decisions.

Molisse Realty Group will use the book as a means of helping educate the buying and selling public. With a normal retail value of $9.95, All Things REAL ESTATE will be made available free to home buyers and sellers, compliments of the Molisse Realty Group.

Molisse said, “I feel so strongly about the value of this book that my agents and I want to share it with anyone who may one day become a home buyer, or home seller.” The book will be available through the Molisse Realty Group offices in Marshfield, Scituate, Weymouth, and Manchester-by-the-Sea, as well as through its web site www.MolisseRealty.com.

Molisse went on to say, “Over the years we have learned that many home buyers, sellers, and renters know little about the actual process, which can cost them significantly.”

He added, “This means that, without the proper knowledge, home buyers and sellers are making decisions in the dark, relying on others. We have adopted All Things REAL ESTATE as the basis of our professional practices, because it describes in non-technical language the key steps in the selling, buying and renting process.

Molisse Realty Group agents will provide a complimentary copy of the book to each prospective buyer and seller. In addition, for a limited time, anyone wishing to order a copy can do so by calling 781-837-5600, or visiting www.MolisseRealty.com/book-request.

Hall will meet with Molisse Realty Group agents on November 16 to conduct an orientation session on how to best use All Things REAL ESTATE in their real estate relationships.

Molisse added, “There is no obligation on the part of anyone who requests a copy of this book. And no matter what real estate agency a person is doing business with, we are glad to provide this important educational offering.”

Here are 5 Autumn Curb Appeal Tips for Attracting the Home Buyer in October

Here are 5 Autumn Curb Appeal Tips for Attracting the Home Buyer in October:

The yard and home exterior are the first thing a buyer sees when they arrive. It's not that hard to spruce up an autumn yard and take all the advantages you can of warm colors and rich foliage.

#1 Clean Up the Yard

The leaves are starting to fall and we've had a few storms knocking branches down. Start raking! Don't let overgrown vegetation block the windows or path to the entrance. Cutting bushes and tree limbs will let the sun inside and showcase the exterior of your home. Cut away summer vines and cut down dead flowers. Make the most of the autumn weather in the fall real estate market.

#2 Get a Pop of Color with Mums

The most popular autumn flowers are mums, and they bloom for a long time.  Mums are available in yellow, red, orange, white and purple. Yellow is the number one home selling color.

#3 Go Easy on the Gore

You may love the idea of blood and guts and skeletons rising from your yard and ghosts hanging from your trees, but will buyers be amused or afraid? Anything that has the potential to turn them off is a no-no when listing your house. Sticking to safe decor choices will help you appeal to the masses.

#4 Update and Maintain

Make sure the house number is clearly painted on the curb and mailbox, see if it's time for an upgrade. Update the walkway with fresh stones or gravel to ensure the path to the front door is clear. Also check the garage door and arrange to refurbish, repair, repaint, or replace if you have to.

#5 Paint Trim and Doors

Even if the whole house doesn't need an exterior paint job, touching up the trim, shutters, and front door can make a massive difference in how the home is perceived from the road or yard.
