Buying a Home in a Grocery Store

Buying a Home in a Grocery Store

Wait. What? Seriously?

Apparently. At least in New England. Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island and New Hampshire to be exact.

ReMax has signed a 5 year contract to open “micro real estate offices” in New England Stop & Shop stores.  Up to 17 of these micro offices are expected to open this year.

I think it’s kind of funny. I can’t imagine trying to conduct such serious business as a real estate transaction in the chaos of a grocery store, carts clanking, announcements blaring. And, not much privacy, huh?

I guess they figure if its good enough for a bank, its good enough for a real estate endeavor.

New times call for new thinking. Would you be comfortable buying a home in a grocery store?

  1. Is this supposed to be convenient? A couple wanders in to get eggs and milk and decides on a 3 bedroom 2 bath?


  2. I will be anxious to see how this works out over time. I can’t imagine anyone buying a home at a micro office in a grocery store. It’s not something you do in a few minutes. Maybe it will be a good way for the real estate company to get a list of potential clients that are interested in buying or selling in the near future.
