Papelbon Beacon Street Penthouse For Sale

Former Red Sox closer, Jonathan Papelbon and his wife, Ashley, are selling their Beacon Street penthouse, reports the Boston Globe. The condo is nice, even if the nursery is pretty pink.

Papelbon's Beacon Street penthouse is four bed-room, three-bathroom, with hardwood floors, high ceilings, custom cabinets, a fireplace, and awesome appliances. There is also an outdoor deck and an elevator. In total, it comes out to 2,500 square feet.

Papelbon is leaving the Sox, with whom he won a World Series, to go to a better team. He joined the Philadelphia Phillies for $50 million over four years.

If you are ready to buy Papelbon’s house, you may need to begin preparation.

Purchasing a home, especially if it is Papelbon’s house (or any other piece of expensive real estate), will likely be the largest and most significant transaction of your life, which is why many people choose to hire a real estate agent to assist in the search and negotiate on their behalf.

Real estate agents generally fall into two categories: home buying agents and home selling agents. Home buying agents aim to level the playing field a bit for homebuyers (almost all sellers have seller’s agents, whose job is to get the very highest price for the property) through the agents’ knowledge of the industry and familiarity with the particulars of a neighborhood, sellers, contractors, etc.

In addition to buying agents, homebuyers may also employ real estate attorneys to represent their interests in the purchase of a home. Attorneys are experts in real estate law and can provide counsel on legal issues which may arise.
