Why Sellers Shouldn't Be At A Showing, Inspection, Or Walkthrough.Why a seller should not be present at showing, inspections, or walkthroughs.Here's why a seller should not be present at showing, inspections, or walkthroughs. Most people only buy and / or sell real estate every 5-10 years. They are out of practice, not up to date, unaware of how litigious real estate has become. They try to learn the language of real estate online, and that language has changed since they last bought or sold a property.I ran across one reason to use an experienced real estate professional today in reading a draft Purchase and Sale Agreement. There, buried in a list of clauses, eighth in the list as a matter of fact, was a clause that could be a problem for a seller who has engaged in direct conversation...

I am not  a runner, or even a jogger, but lots and lots of other people are.This is a full marathon, half marathon, and a relay marathon all in one.

From the shores of Woods Hole, to Waquoit, then inland to the Northeastern part of Falmouth by the Barnstable County Fair Grounds, then westerly to the Buzzards Bay shore lines and back down to Woods Hole before returning to the start/finis...

What does a termite tunnel look like? Here's one example.What does a termite tunnel look like? Here's one example from a house we have listed. I have seen termite tubes going up walls, or along a beam or sill, but I have never seen one that looks like a stalactite. This beam also has "powder post beetles" but the hanging structures are termite tunnels.This is a great Cape Cod location. Almost one acre and two buildings that were built around 1920. They have seen The Cape develop and evolve from a man made island of woods, cranberries, strawberries, and seafood related businesses to a resort destination for people from all over the world and all walks of life.Abutting this property is land that has been set aside as conservation / not developable. Trails lead to one of the ocean inlets t...

Real Estate Truth – Sellers are not defined by their propertyI recently worked with a seller that caused me to develop the following: Real Estate Truth – Sellers are not defined by their property, any more than when they sell any other asset. Holly and I often help sellers value and sell their property on Cape Cod. Sometimes when selling their real estate, sellers get distracted from the facts.The first fact is that once the decision to sell has been made, the real estate is an asset being converted into future opportunity. Few other assets cause sellers to carry emotion into a transaction more than real estate. It can be said that sometimes, selling a home is akin to grieving for a loved one who is moving away forever. And, in these days of HGTV, commercials about "making millions in r...

Real Estate in 2016 vs 1996There are some interesting differences in Real Estate in 2016 vs 1996. Over the last 20 years, starting with the Internet and continuing to smart phones and Skype showings, so many things have changed in real estate.In 1996 I remember sitting in a room with the then owner of the company I worked for an we had a discussion about what domain we should choose. There were so few domains, we could have chosen almost anything. Then when we made a decision, we dialed up the Internet, and waited to connect...and waited to connect...and then we waited to see the screen load, and then after awhile, we were able to complete the registration.I also remember thinking I had a Maserati of a computer when my desktop came with 4gigs of RAM. This was a Cadillac of computers and...

Do you cut your own hair?Do you cut your own hair? I was sitting in Geoff's barber's chair for my quarterly hair cut today at Stone's Barber Shop, and I had a giggle. I was thinking how ridiculous it would be for me to try and cut my own hair.Here is a guy who cuts hair every day. He has the tools. Things like the scissors that are teeth like. Scissors that are normal hair cutting scissors. Motorized hair cutting tools. Combs, brushes, aprons, a comfy chair, and the finish brush that he dusts my shirt off with when he's through. AND, he can do it in 1/2 and hour!Why on earth would I try and learn how to cut my own hair? Why do I need to get all the tools together and keep them sharpened, cleaned an in working order so that every three months or so, I could try and make the hair length o...

What Makes Falmouth MA Great!What Makes Falmouth MA Great!? Well, where to start. It could be that Falmouth is in the southwest corner of Cape Cod - one of the places that the world visits for vacations. It could be that having the most waterfront of any town in the United States provides both visitors and residents with beautiful beaches, boating, sunsets, seafood, historical adventures, bird watching, whale watching, and now shark watching, picturesque vistas, summer baseball, nature walks, and relaxation all year long. Or it could be the varied people from diverse places who are here part time and full time.Falmouth is the second largest of The Cape's 15 towns and it is in the southwest corner, aka Upper Cape, aka Shoulder Area of The Cape. With approximately 23,000 properties, and o...

Foreclosure List For MAssachusetts - A WebsiteYou can finally get a Foreclosure List For Massachusetts from A Website that was just hatched. MA lawmakers apparently passed a new requirement that all legal notices be placed online as well as being printed in an appropriate off-line publication. One of the issues with the new directive is the cost of placing the notices on websites, and which is / are the correct / best ones to post them on.Enter the MNPA (MASSACHUSETTS NEWSPAPER PUBLISHERS ASSOCIATION), with all their publications, and viola a solution. They have provided an outlet for the public notices which should help anyone find the notices with ease. This is a statewide website which will apparently provide access to all public notices from all newspapers in MA.The MNPA members wil...

How To Sell Your Home This WinterTo Sell Your Home This Winter, there are a number of steps to take to prepare it properly. Snow, cold weather, or rain can negatively influence your prospective buyer, especially when they have to travel to get to it, like here in a second home market. Here are 4 simple, and essential, tips to sell your home this winter. Stay ahead of the other sellers!#1 – FIRST IMPRESSIONS MATTERIt can be said that the Internet is the first impression. However, when buyers compare the online pictures with the property they are driving by, they are sometimes disappointed. Poor curb appeal can make great interior never get seen, because buyers take the outside off the list. Make sure you present the best curb appeal possible.

My Mechanic Only Works Weekends - Usually - NOT My Mechanic Only Works Weekends - Usually - NOT.  What if your mechanic only worked weekends? Would you choose to have your car worked on by someone who dabbles in car repair? Could you choose to let your needed tool of transport be handled by someone reading a fix-it manual, or watching a Youtube, or asking someone else for advice as they went along? Might you look for someone who has not been to the repair shop more than you have since you last needed service?  Probably not.What about your hair dresser? Would you like to have your hair cut or styled or colored by a part time esthetician? Would you accept someone reading the directions from the package as a color-ologist? Do you want the one with the scissors to have been in the salon onl...
