The Cambridge House, #PHB (Brown Harris Stevens) The Cambridge House, #PHB (Brown Harris Stevens)
During the worst of the pandemic, labor shortages and supply chain woes combined to make home improvement projects extremely stressful. Both crises have eased up, but renovations can still be extremely stressful. Some homeowners embark on a series of repairs and renovations before listing, while others leave them as is and price the home to sell. In the case of the latter, buyers should bear in mind that the money they save on the sticker price could very well go straight into renovations.

From July 26 - August 1, 2023, a total of 218 sales listings experienced price reductions. A selection of notable discounts, a number of which are waiting for buyers to put their personal stamp on the place, may be seen below.
