 Sandwich, Massachusetts incorporated in 1639, is the oldest town on Cape Cod. The town is a mostly residential community with a winter population considerably smaller than the population during the warm summer. Residents feel that its charm and uniqueness combined with its ideal location make Sandwich a very attractive place both to live and visit.  Sandwich's beaches along Cape Cod Bay stretch for miles and, on a clear day, provide a wonderful view of the many vessels that pass through on their way to or from the Boston area. Commercial fishermen and lobstermen can be seen daily from the docks at the Sandwich Marina, the only harbor along the canal.  Not too far from the marina is historic Sandwich Village, which is a world renowned tourist destination, providing a glimpse into New E...

What Type of Dog are You? How much should I offer? That is a question I hear often. The answer is not always easy to answer. It depends on how much you want the property and perceived value.   One way to look at it, is to compare it to dog types:   The yipper - bidding extremely low is like a small barking dog that is yipping and yapping at your heals. The seller is likely to get annoyed and not do anything, ignoring the offer and not countering.   The pitbull - making demands and acting like the buyer has the upper hand. The seller is likely to recoil and shut the door on the deal.   Neither of the above are likely to have positive results.   The lap dog- this is when the buyer really wants the property and gives the seller everything right from the start. Akin to jumping in the seller...

Mortgage Rates on July 9, 2010 - Improving, or...? Here are some of the events affecting mortgage rates today: What Mortgage Backed Securities (MBS) Are Doing Today: The price of the FNMA 30-Year 4.0% MBS coupon opened at 101.44 this morning - the same as yesterday's close. At 9:30 AM, the 4.0% MBS coupon was trading at 101.50 - up 2/32 from its opening. Remember, on mortgage backed securities (MBSs), as the price goes up, the yield comes down - and so do mortgage rates. I expect that mortgage rates will be about the same in price this morning as compared to yesterday.

You called some friends for references, you searched the Internet and you finally found a Realtor you want to hire.  The Realtor helped you find and negotiate the home.  You are on the way to the closing and you're a little nervous things won't go just right. Maybe, there were a couple of small glitches, but the Realtor and the attorneys worked it out and everyone is happy. Handshakes, hugs and maybe a high five. Now what? Is it goodbye to your Realtor? Hopefully, no. Your Realtor has become a close ally that can continue to offer services and guidance, especially if you are moving into a new area or buying a second home in a resort area, such as Cape Cod. A good Realtor will guide you through home repairs, lawn issues and other , offering references, maybe even meeting them when you ar...
