Last year featured a changing real estate environment across the nation. This New Year looks to hold some similar characteristics to 2022, but with several key differences.With that in mind, I decided to send an overview of what prospective buyers and sellers should know in 2023.If You’re Looking to Buy Overall, normalcy could return, with moderating pricing and fewer transactions. Here are some specifics: Pricing may rise from current levels but at a slower pace than in previous years. According to, expectations are for overall price increases of 5.4% year-over-year. In addition, the National Association of Realtors predicts that inventories may rise from 2022 levels, potentially making buyer selection more favorable than last year. Existing home sales are projected to decl...

Are property values on Cape Cod going to fall?The obvious factors that could potentially lead to a decline in property values on Cape Cod, are:    Economic recession: IF the local economy enters a recession, it could lead to a decline in property values as fewer people will be able to afford to buy homes.    Inventory: If the number of homes for sale on Cape Cod somehow more than doubles to quickly exceed the number of buyers in the current buyer pool, that could lead to a decline in property values, because sellers would probably need to lower their expectations of value in order to attract buyers.    New regulations: Regulations such as Title 6, the new septic regulations in Massachusetts, could lead to increased costs for homeowners, which could be passed on to buyers in the form of ...

It seems that people need a laugh – especially on Friday. So, we dig back in to classic comedy scenes from a much better age of television. Some clips I found from past TV comedy when TV comedy meant something far different from today. A more innocent time and a time of real quality. Hope you enjoy the clips. Due to the length, there is just 1 clip per week. Enjoy!

 There are many options when it comes to mortgages and deciding which one is the best fit for you and your upcoming home purchase can be difficult and downright confusing.

One of the most important things you'll have to do in order to guarantee the success of your SEO campaign is to have fresh, new, and unique content.  On the web, content really is king; it is what distinguishes one web property from the next one.  Well-written and informative content establishes the value of your website and other web properties.  Your content (or lack thereof) will tell the world (and the search engines) how much authority you are on your particular subject matter.Without significant content, search engines (like Google) will check out (or crawl) your web properties and quickly determine that your sites are nothing special – relegating your sites to the black hole of insignificant websites.So the obvious question is how do you begin to develop your own unique content; ...

Pre-Approval in 2023: What You Need To KnowOne of the first steps in your homebuying journey is getting pre-approved. To understand why its such an important step, you need to understand what pre-approval is and what it does for you. Business Insider explains: In a preapproval [sic], the lender tells you which types of loans you may be eligible to take out, how much you may be approved to borrow, and what your rate could be.Basically, pre-approval gives you critical information about the homebuying process that'll help you understand your options and what you may be able to borrow. How does it work? As part of the pre-approval process, a lender will look at your finances to determine what they'd be willing to loan you. From there, your lender will give you a pre-approval letter to help ...

Friday Flags  A Waterbury CT Flag Waving ProudlyThere is a cemetery directly across the street from our office.  There is a flag there, but it is sheltered by several large trees, so it is very seldom doing anything other than just on the pole.Yesterday was a different story as the wind direction was perfect and my timing likewise.I try to be observant while doing my routines, but I do not see many flags aside from residential properties. I wonder if the business owners would rather be in some other country.  I will keep a mental note of that when I look for goods and services in the future.Friday Flags  A Waterbury CT Flag Waving Proudly
