Oh, maybe that is the problem.  Unrealistic expectations of what a property is worth and petty holdouts can scuttle many deals. Whether a seller or buyer be, do your research and get professional advice. Sellers need to understand and accept what their house is worth today. It may have no relation to what it could have sold for in 2005, how much they owe, how much they paid for it or how much work they put into it over the last 10 years.  A home is worth only what someone is willing to pay for it. All the analysis means nothing if nobody is will to buy it. Part of the difficulty in setting a price is du...

On May 6, 2008, there were just over 1900 properties in the pre-foreclosure stages in Cape Cod towns.  That is only 1.3% of the 140,000(+-) homes on the Cape.   Less than half of the homes on Cape Cod are actually second homes, and commercial properties are not included in the 1900.  Most Cape Cod homes are owner occupied, contrary to popular thinking. Some communities within the Cape do have more than 50% vacation home or investment status, but for the most part, the Cape has a year-round economy. Sandwich is on the north-western edge of Cape Cod.  It is on the south side of the Sagamore Bridge.  It is famous for the glass museum, Daniel Webster, and other historic attractions.  North of Falmouth and west of Barnstable, Sandwich is one of the smaller towns on Cape Cod.  Less than 20% o...
