We realtors are never surprised to hear "within walking distance to town" as a priority at the top of a new buyer's wish list when meeting for the first time. We understand the allure of being close to the city center - Northampton, Amherst and the other local towns in the Pioneer Valley have much to offer. That said, if you are willing to be open to the idea, traveling a bit out of town gives you more bang for your buck - more space, more privacy, and, oftentimes, more houses in great/new condition.
Along those lines, we have some new Maple and Main Realty listings that we are excited to share here, so read on!
