Although we had a very cold winter with plenty of snow, relative to th winter we had in 2010, Falmouth, MA had pretty solid sales figures for the 1st Quarter of 2011.  Here are the results compared to 2010 1st. Quarter.  Falmouth only showed a slight decrease in all the different catagories listed below which I think is pretty good despite the weather.  There were days I didn't want to leave my house this winter with all the ice and snow, never mind sell a house!!!  These results are for single family homes and do not include condominium sales.  Resource: CC&IAOR                                       2010 1st Qtr Results:                                                       2011 1st Qtr.

If you don't act to save it!  The MID or Mortgage Interest Rate Deduction is in danger of being voted into history. The economic recovery depends in large measure on recovery in the housing market.  To preserve the MID, urge your reps in Washington to oppose any legislation that would undermine it. You can use the Realtor Call To Action page. This is a link to the Realtor Call To Action page for saving and protecting the MID.  This has a brief form that allows you to send an email to your rep asap. If you own a home, does the MID help you on your taxes? If you sell homes, does the MID help buyers decide to buy instead of rent? The Realtor Call To Action Web Site says: "When Congress is considering legislation that affects the real estate industry, NAR calls on its members to act. Simply...

There are grants available to Green Community towns across the US. Falmouth MA is making a concentrated effort to be at the top of the list, and a leader. There are meetings coming up to help educate and elucidate Falmouth's plans. There is a meeting at Lawrence School at 6:30pm Thursday evening. The Lawrence school is on Lakeview Ave and is the 7th and 8th grade middle school. The meeting will be in the auditorium. There will also be a discussion of "Stretch Energy" at Town Meeting. This is the idea that building should encompass current energy conservation concepts and products. Towns with higher energy conserving building standards and codes can acquire grants from the Commonwealth of MA. As of last November, only 64 of the over 350 MA towns were on the Stretch Code list. The links b...

It was around 40 degrees today and the Coast Guard was practicing rescues off the coast of Falmouth MA on Cape Cod. This helicpoter and the rescue teams repeated their routine over and over in the cold waters. The sun was out, but I'm sure they were cold. I put my Droid camera lense up to the eyelet of a pair of binoculars I had and took this video. It is a little shaky, but clear enough to see one completed rescue. The waster was calm, the sun was out, and in general, a good day to practice.

House Hunting Tip: The information reported in the public record is often wrong. In my small town, the Assessing Department and the Building Department and often the Health Department and the Assessing Department do not compare their property records. What one department has, may not be a part of another department's information.  We even have 2 different, town authorized, online sources for property values that don't match all the time. For anyone - agents, buyers, and sellers all included - there is a public record problem. For agents, knowing what exists and being asked to explain the public record differences can be frustrating. For buyers, the discrepancies create an air of mis-trust and concern. For sellers, the actual property components that should be noted and aren't, devalue t...

  Falmouth, Massachusetts is situated in the southwest corner of Cape Cod, known as the Upper-Cape. It is the second most populous and second largest town on the Cape, and probably has one of the longest coastlines in the state. Some 70 miles of seashore edge the town. Consequently, there is a lot of land development with high value, high demand, and the choice views that create real property wealth.  The town was settled by English colonists in 1660 and officially incorporated in 1686. Early economic activities included farming, salt works, whaling, shipping and sheep husbandry. By the late 1800s cranberries were being cultivated and strawberries were being raised for the Boston market. With the arrival of the railroads in 1872, the town and its constituent villages became popular sum...

Last week a storm whipped through Falmouth briefly. I took this picture of a double rainbow that formed outside my office. It changed in brightness and clarity over the few minutes it was visible. I've seen double rainbows before, but this one was the brightest I've ever seen, double or otherwise. The rest of that week was very pleasant.  This week we have had rain to help all the leaves fall, and to let all the trees get their thirst quenched before the cold months arrive. It is still a beautiful day on Cape Cod!

Its A Beautiful Day On Cape Cod! The picture below was taken behind my house. It is the view we get to appreciate here on Cape Cod. Sometimes there are as many as 50 swans hanging out there. Today, there were swans and ducks. There is also a Ospreys and Hawks that hunt this area. With the colors changing and the air cooling, the Cape is a great place to enjoy fall. Come on down to Cape Cod. We have open houses all weekend, and Its A Beautiful Day On Cape Cod!
