Is it cheaper to buy a home than rent one in Worcester?

The answer to that question is a resounding YES, according to Trulia, a residential real estate and data trending group. The group recently compiled data that examined homes for sale and homes for rent in the top 100 metro areas considered the largest in the country, including Worcester, Massachusetts. The data came from its database for listings in the months of June, July and August of this year. In every single market buying a home was less expensive than renting one, and by a big margin. It also stayed that way over a seven year period.

Worcester Diocese to be sued over housing discrimination

Residential real estate transactions can be a complex maze of rules, regulations and paperwork. Any number of things can go wrong from title declarations to land use and zoning issues when it comes to commercial real estate. And there are always price negotiations and inspections to deal with. But what went wrong for two men is they claim they were discriminated against by the Worcester Roman Catholic Diocese because they are gay. The two men were in negotiations with the Diocese over the purchase of a Northbridge mansion that sits on 26 acres and they intend to sue the Diocese for housing discrimination in the matter.

National group helping Worcester families prevent foreclosure

As many Worcester families already know, the foreclosure crisis has hit our area particularly hard. Now a national group called the Neighborhoods Assistance Corporation of America is trying to bring a little relief to the Worcester area by working with local residents to pair them with banks to find a solution to their mortgage issues. Having face to face contact with a lender can make all the difference, said the director of communications for NACA. Having the decision maker right there in front of the homeowner really opens up the communications and makes the lender see the person behind the numbers in the file.

Worcester named "Hot Spot" in Massachusetts real estate market

As many real estate professionals may already know, Worcester has become a "hot spot" for Massachusetts real estate.

It is a unique situation, according to the CEO of Worcester Apartment Rental Agency, that is probably only seen in a few select cities around the country.

The assistant district attorney's office and Framingham District Court are also on board. Their first order of business? A walking tour of downtown.

Advice for first-time homebuyers in current housing market

With mortgage rates near 60-year lows, first-time Massachusetts homebuyers might be wondering if now is the right time to buy.
