cape cod real estate: Cape Cod Real Estate - Can I Move The Driveway? - 11/13/18 09:37 AM
Cape Cod Real Estate - Can I Move The Driveway?
Can I Move the Driveway? Holly and I have been showing property to an experienced buyer who knows the value of using a real estate agent. Experienced agents save time, and make their clients money.
One of the properties we looked at has some good potential if a garage can be added. In order to add the garage, the driveway needs to be moved from one side of the corner lot to another. The buyer asked if this can be done.
Every town has different rules and procedures for things like this. Because we've … (1 comments)

Real Estate Foreclosures on Cape Cod – Some Are Good Buys
 
Real Estate Foreclosures on Cape Cod are often the topic of buyers who are looking for a deal on real estate. The problem is that many of the foreclosures in the past were problem properties. In today’s real estate market, however, there are some special possibilities that could actually be good opportunities.
 
In July of 2017, there were 32 Order of Notice filings in the Barnstable Registry of Deeds. The Order of Notice is the first publicly formal step in the Massachusetts foreclosure process. By this time, all efforts to work out … (1 comments)

cape cod real estate: Do You Cut Your Own Hair? - 10/12/16 08:57 AM
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 … (6 comments)

cape cod real estate: Snow Removal In Massachusetts - Owners' Reasonable Care - 01/05/16 02:24 AM
Snow Removal In Massachusetts - Owners' Reasonable Care
“Reasonable Care” now appears to be the requirement in MA.
Massachusetts property owners have a what lawyers call "a duty" or responsibility to use “reasonable care” for the protection of visitors. That would appear to make homeowners responsible for the removal of snow and ice from their property. That means for visitors, delivery people, family, friends, etc., need to be able to access and passages after the owner has used "reasonable care" to clear them.
There was a court case that appears to have changed the way courts see snow removal in 2010. I'm not a lawyer, but it … (0 comments)

cape cod real estate: Painting Solutions to 5 Common Paint Problems - 5 - 11/09/15 03:26 AM
Painting Solutions to 5 Common Paint Problems - 5
Painting Solutions to 5 Common Paint Problems. Number 5 of 5. The fifth issue that Paul Dunn, Paint Division Manager for Cape Associates, mentioned as a one of 5 common paint problems is the incompatibility of various paint materials.
Not all paints are compatible with each other. Oil paint does not like to be covered by latex paint. If you remember that latex paint is water based, and that oil and water do not mix, your paint will last longer.
That may seem simple, but professionals see it all the time on Cape Cod. Oil paint goes … (1 comments)

Painting Solutions to 5 Common Paint Problems. Number 4 of 5. The fourth issue that Paul Dunn, Paint Division Manager for Cape Associates, mentioned as a one of 5 common paint problems on Cape Cod is humidity.
Humidity is one of the staples for the growth of mold. There is not much anyone can do about controlling humidity in the air around your property. However there are some things to do so that the surfaces on the outside can dry out.
Trimming trees that cause too much shade on the painted surfaces can help enough sun hit … (0 comments)

Painting Solutions to 5 Common Paint Problems. Number 3. The third issue that Paul Dunn, Paint Division Manager for Cape Associates, mentioned as a one of 5 common paint problems is mold.
Mold has become a huge danger word in the real estate business. However, it is just another repair item that needs a professional to address. Having someone who sees mold often enough to know what it is and how to deal with it is so much better that trying to hide it an hoping it has gone away.
Paul explained that mold needs two … (2 comments)

Painting Solutions to 5 Common Paint Problems. Number 2 of 5. The second issue that Paul Dunn, Paint Division Manager for Cape Associates, mentioned as a one of 5 common paint problems is UltraViolet rays. Paul says, "UV will degrade any paint over time - period."
Whether you've painted with oil or latex, the exterior paint will be affected by UV rays. Sometimes you can see where a latex paint was applied over an oil paint that was deteriorating. Professionals know that if the surface was not properly prepared before painting, the latex paint … (0 comments)

Barnstable County real estate activity. How Many homes sold? What is the market like? 
 
When a real estate professional gets a question like one of those above, we need more information to correctly answer. Pros get caught in the purgatory of question-land where we have to decide if the question is just a friendly ice-breaker, or actually a serious question. 
 
If it is serious, we all know, location is important. So is the type of property, and so is the condition. So, maybe we need to know the town and the neighborhood. Then we'll know what beaches, businesses, and … (0 comments)
