What you get for $1,000,000…

The New York Times does a regular feature in its real estate section which is one of my favorites.  It is called “What You Get For…” and highlights 3 homes in different parts of the country for a certain dollar amount (which changes).  I like this feature so much that I  am going to replicate the format, albeit highlighting properties that are local.  Today I am featuring five homes, each around $1 million dollars.  A millions dollars sounds like a lot of money…a million dollars IS a lot of money.  But in the greater Boston area, $1M doesn’t always buy you as much as you might think it should.  The Boston area counts as one of the more expensive housing markets in the US, with Wellesley, MA cited as the 10th most expensive town in the country (as of this writing there are 92 properties listed for sale in Wellesley, of which 75 are listed at more than $1 million).  Today I will include properties listed for sale in Dover, Natick, Needham, Sherborn and Wellesley, all of which share some borders in the area west of Boston.

About Lisa Van Dore

I have lived in Sherborn, Dover and most recently North Walpole, for a total of 15 years (and counting). Having recently been through the process of selling a home and buying (and renovating) a new one, I understand the conflicting emotions of excitement and anxiety inherent in the process, whether you are a seller or buyer, whether this is your first home purchase or your tenth. I have a BA from the University of Michigan and an MBA from Indiana University. My early career found me working as a CPA, and later as the controller of Crate & Barrel. More recently I spent seven years running my own personal training business. I understand the hard work and dedication necessary to build a business and a reputation...most of my personal training clients came to me by referral and my first client was still with me when I decided to leave personal training. This speaks to the level of effort I put forth for my clients, week after week. On a more personal note, I raced triathlon for seven years and more recently completed my first half marathon. In my free time I enjoy cooking, reading, Maine, hiking and, in the fall, following college football...my teams are the University of Michigan (Go Blue!) and Texas Christian University (Go Frogs!).
