Ron Carpenito of Keller Williams Realty Andover helped another couple purchase a home in Bradford, MA.

Bradford, MA, September 04, 2014 --( Ron Carpenito of Keller Williams Realty Andover was thrilled to finalize the purchase of another Bradford, MA home. This home is located in the zip code region of 01835 on Franzone Drive. This home measured 1355 square feet with 2 bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths. This is a 2 level duplex style townhouse in Bradford, MA.

Jennifer and Ed Long were referred to Ron from a past client. Ed is a veteran and had the opportunity to use a VA loan, which is a great product for veterans. It requires no money down and allows all closing costs to be worked into the mortgage, resulting in no money out of pocket at closing.

“Having to find a seller who will deal with a no money down buyer is challenging, but we made it happen,” said Ron.

Also, with 100% financing, making sure the property was at the right price to make appraisal happen was high priority. In addition, condition of the home was very important as Ed and Jennifer didn’t want to buy a home that needed any improvements.

Ed and Jennifer had to stay under a certain dollar amount with condo fees, taxes and insurance. Ron created a special matrix for them that automatically calculated at taxes, condo fee and price to quickly determine if a property was worth their time to look at.

when this particular townhouse in Bradford came on the market, they were one of the first to see it. They put in a great offer and used a certain strategy to get all of their fees covered by seller. Ron’s negotiations also had the seller maintain the furnace, since they hadn’t in a while. “This condo met all of our clients needs; the right time for closing, right price, and right condition, they’re really happy. Plus, the home had a beautiful garden for Jennifer, who loves gardening,” said Ron.
