I think you'd have a tough time finding anyone in New England who doesn't love fall. Our local farms are bursting with pumpkins, apples, and mums to add a little fall to your home decorating. The trees have turned to beautiful golden colors and the air feels cooler every day. One place I love to visit each year is Russell's Garden Center just down the road in Wayland. They always have a great selection of fall plants and flowers. What are some of your favorite local farms and garden centers in the area? 

Quick market update -- the market continues to be strong for sellers. Home inventory is low here in Massachusetts and across most of the country. With buyer activity high, that's good news for sellers looking to get a great return on their home. Buyer competition is growing which is why it's important to work with a realtor who knows the market and has the expertise to help you put together a strong offer. If you're ready to list or buy, let's connect. I'd love to help you make your next move.

Wishing you a great week!
