I attended a home inspection yesterday at a unit located in the Union Square Condominium Association, which is located in Randolph, and I, being bored, because, as any real estate agent will tell you, home inspectors generally don’t like it when real estate agents follow them around like hungry cats so I sat on the couch and started playing with my iPhone 5s. Sigh… What a waste of time!
But seriously… It’s good practice, as real estate agents, to make sure that your buyers follow home inspectors around like hungry cats. It’s also very important that you, as a good real estate agent, ask the home inspector, at the end of the home inspection, for a verbal list of some of the most important points and, if necessary, ask the home inspector to physically show you any defects that are likely to be part of any future negotiations. Most importantly, always ask for a copy of the home inspection report!
With that being said, I noticed that it was a beautiful day out for taking some pictures so I decided to put my iPhone 5s and my new Moment wide angle lens to good use by taking some pictures of the Union Square Condominium Association which, in my opinion, is an oasis in Randolph. The condominium property is located on Union Square, its own little cul de sac, which is tucked behind Citizens Bank. Here’s a Google Map which might help you to get more situated.

The condominium property has an inviting entrance which features brick walls with lovely landscaping and lanterns on each side of the street as you enter the complex. The road has been recently paved and it looks good. The surrounding properties may be densely settled for a suburb but they don’t feel as though they’re encroaching on the Union Square Condominium Association.
The condominium property has plenty of guest parking on both sides of the street leading into the condominium complex. You’ll notice that all the guest parking spaces were empty and that, further down the road, only a couple of the additional guest parking spaces were taken. My Jeep Cherokee was nicely shaded under one of the many mature trees in the complex.
The gazebo is charming but it would’ve been nice if it could be used as a shaded sitting spot but, instead, it actually houses the mail center for the residents. As you can see, the gazebo and the area surrounding the gazebo is festooned with patriotic bunting and flags for Flag Day and the 4th of July. The landscaping, per usual, is invitingly maintained.
The pool and the pool area are both small but inviting; you can see that it’s properly managed which is seemingly true of the entire condominium complex. I would’ve taken a dip if I were dressed properly. How about you?
And this is 12 Union Square which is one of the detached condominium units in the condominium complex. It’s an inviting and lovely condominium; my buyer currently has an accepted offer on the unit. The home inspection results have come in and there are some issues, as usual, but I’m hoping that the buyer and seller can work together in order for the deal to close. Tiger Home Inspection represented the buyer and, in my opinion, the company generally does a good job although I’d like to see the company add pictures to their home inspection reports like most of the other home inspection companies.
