Why Justin Jarboe?



  • My wife and I have been working with Alicia and Justin on the purchase of our first home. From the initial consultation in their office, they have been great. Alicia personally spent most of Memorial Day weekend with us showing us houses all over central MA. We eventually found one that is perfect for us, and are looking forward to closing on it very soon! There have been some challenges along the way as the seller is installing a brand new septic system prior to closing. Alicia and Justin have constantly communicated and stayed on top of everything through the entire process so nothing falls through the cracks. I have every confidence in them and their team, and would highly recommend them to anyone.
    — Michael

  • We worked with the Jarboe Group to buy our first house. Justin was incredibly knowledgeable and walked us through the process step by step. He was reliable and responded quickly- through email, text and phone- to all my questions and concerns. He helped us find a lawyer and bank, as well as home improvement and handyman services. Justin was so kind and patient- buying a house is stressful and Justin made us feel supported and reassured through the ups and downs. We knew he was on our side. We really believe we got our beautiful house because of Justin and his teams hard work and willingness to put in the extra effort. We are so happy with our house and would highly recommend the Jarboe Group!
    — Natalie

  • One of the greatest challenges to finding a new home is aligning yourself with a real estate agent who's primary focus is you, the client, and not their commission check. When house hunting, just like car buying, you want a "smart friend" with you to make sure no one takes advantage of you. Well, Justin Jarboe is that smart friend and I highly recommend him and his services as a realtor. Justin and his team did a wonderful job getting to know the needs of my family, and used that to help us get the home of our dreams. Throughout the entire process, Justin was very patient and was excellent at leading us around every corner along the way. If I'm ever in the market again, Justin will be the person that I call, and if you are in the market now, I hope that you call him too

protecting your interests


We are consultants, not salespeople. We are committed to helping you and are not attached to the outcome. Don't be surprised if we advise you not to purchase something or wait a little longer for the market to shift. We would rather turn you into a client for life than earn a commission.



integrity


We will always be upfront and honest with you even if it costs us a deal. We feel there are too many agents that are just in it for the money. We are committed to being an advocate for you and helping you make the best possible decision. When you hire The Jarboe Group you are hiring a team of individuals with integrity who are held to very high standards.



PASSION


Here at The Jarboe Group we love what we do. We are passionate about helping others reach their goals and dreams. We are not just agents that look at customers as a paycheck. When you simply come into the office and sit down with us, you will quickly see why so many buyers hire us to help them buy a home.

Q + A

DO I PAY FOR MY REAL ESTATE AGENT'S FEES?

We get paid by the Seller of the property. Buyer's typically do not pay any real estate commissions.

SHOULD I BUY OR RENT?

Most of the time we recommend buying over renting, however, please check this great Buy v. Rent calculator. Real Estate properties are investments that can be sold at a later date and often at a considerable return. When renting you are helping to pay off the Landlord's mortgage. Scheduling a consultation with Justin and requesting a net worth analysis can help with your decision.

WHAT CAN I AFFORD TO SPEND?

Justin will connect you with knowledgable Bankers & Mortgage Lenders who can walk you through the mortgage process, and start the pre approval.

WHAT ARE THE ADDITIONAL COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH BUYING?

After your initial deposit to hold the house, you will incur the cost of a home inspection (this is an opinoin and non refundable). Typical inspection costs range from $350-$1,500 depending on what needs to be inspected (general, water quality, radon, title, pest, etc.).

After the home inspection you will submit an additional down payment when you sign the Purchase & Sale agreement. Both the initial deposit and this one will go towards your full down payment.

Next you will pay for an appraisal (non-refundable opinion of value ordered by your banker/lender). The appraisal typical costs between $500-$1,000. There are other fees associated with the sale however they won't be billed at closing. All in, you should budget for $850-$2,500 in addition to your downpayment and closing costs.

THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN BUYING A CONDO

  • Review the association's financials including but not limited to: Profit and Loss statement, Balance Sheet, Budget, Last year's Budget vs actual spent. This will allow you to get a BIG picture into the financial solvency of the association.
  • Review the association's meeting minutes: This will allow you to see if there are any ongoing issues that current unit owners are complaining about.
  • Ask when the last time the association has an increase in their HOA dues. Is there a trend where the monthly association dues keep increasing every year?
  • Do they allow pets? Are there restrictions?
  • What is the owner occupancy to renter ratio: Condo associations with 51% or more of owner occupants are typically eligible for more favorable financing terms.
  • Are there restrictions on renting my unit after I buy it?
  • How many deeded parking spaces do I get? Is there visitor parking?
  • What amenities come with my association? Do I have access to a pool, tennis court, gym, courtyard, meeting room, etc...
  • What security is included? Are there cameras inside and out? How long are these recordings archived for before they are deleted?
