falmouth ma real estate: Falmouth Housing Data - 15 Months - 06/28/10 10:48 AM
Here is some housing market data for Falmouth MA. It shows that there have been twice as many properties coming on the market as have been sold. And the current inventory is almost 1 year. This chart is for Non-Waterfront properties only. While Falmouth has more waterfront that any other town in the country, there are many more homes in Falmouth that are not on the water.

The average list to sale price shows 95%. The only problem I have with that nymber/percentage is that is relative to the listing price at the time it went under agreement. This does not take … (3 comments)

falmouth ma real estate: No Smoke Inspections In Falmouth MA Until June 16 - 05/20/10 03:12 AM
I just received a call from the Falmouth fire department informing me that smoke detector inspections in the town of Falmouth MA cannot be scheduled until after June 16 because all the slots are full. On the one had this is good news, because that means that there are lots of closing happening! On the other hand it means that offers have to carefully written.
This may be a temporary blitz because of the end of the tax credit. Or, it could be a good sign that the real estate market has at least stabilized in Falmouth. Or, it cold be the … (0 comments)

falmouth ma real estate: Falmouth MA - A Cape Cod Snow Storm - 12/22/09 01:53 AM
Well, it is another beautiful day on Cape Cod! It is cold, but the sun is out and the snow is still white. People are out shopping again and most of the streets have been plowed at least once.
This may sound funny to those who live in colder climates where snow is common. However, here on Cape Cod, lots of snow all at once does not happen often. We have enough equipment to clear out small storms, but larger ones take a little time and patience.
The picture below was taken yesterday as the sun rose. I measured 17 inches with … (3 comments)

falmouth ma real estate: Should you get a septic inspection? - 11/03/09 01:40 AM
Should you get a septic inspection? It is extremely important to have a proper, thorough, inspection of the septic system components if you are buying a home with a septic system. Unfortunately for many home buyers, the typical brief septic inspection tells you very little about the real state of the septic system. In my state, the tank is uncovered and viewed, and the scum level and depth is noted. A diagram is drawn indicating the location of the components. Septic inspections for the sale/purchase of a home is a limited visual inspection to determine the condition of the septic field … (0 comments)

Now that Plymouth Rock Studios has their $550,000,000 to build the Hollywood East Studios in Plymouth MA, now is the time to secure your east coast privacy!

falmouth ma real estate: Foreclosure Statistical Data - 10/20/09 06:47 AM
Have you seen this information on foreclosures?
50% of United States foreclosures in 2008 came from 35 counties in only 12 states.20% of the United States' population lives in those 35 counties.
Eight counties in Arizona, California, Florida and Nevada were the source of 25% of foreclosures.Existing home sales in the US rose to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.7 million units in February, 2009, and only 860,000 homes were repossessed all of 2008.
If these things are correct and true, either 20% of the population controls the rest of the US, or the reporting is leading us to believe … (5 comments)

falmouth ma real estate: Falmouth MA 40B Project List - 10/20/09 02:58 AM
Have you ever wondered where the 40B (low income) developments are in Falmouth. The list below was provided to real estate professionals recently. The list includes the developer/applicant, acreage, zoning information, number of units, etc.
Some people don't want to be in or near a 40B subdivision. Their perception is that a 40B development is like the infamous "projects" so many cities have. But, this is not correct.
A 40B project is known as a "low income" development. This is not the same as Section 8 income assistance.  In a 40B development, 25% of the properties for sale are made available to buyers who have … (0 comments)

falmouth ma real estate: Falmouth Accessory Apartments List - 10/20/09 01:36 AM
(While this information is specific to Falmouth, MA, a smart investor will take note and include the information as they research property in other locations.)
In the town of Falmouth, we occasionally have property for sale with "Accessory Apartments".  This means that besides the main residence there is an attached or detached "other" residence on the same property. While there are many Falmouth residences being used as accessory apartments, not all of them are approved by the town.
What does approved have to do with anything? Approved is a protection for tenants, owners, and even lenders. Without town approval, a property may … (0 comments)

falmouth ma real estate: Does Your Mortgage Originator Have A "Unique Identifier"? - 10/10/09 05:35 AM
According to the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System every mortgage originator is now going to be fingerprinted, registered in a registry, and tracked through their life as an originator. This is evidently intended to monitor the originator and the loans they write.
If you ask your mortgage originator for their "Unique Identifier" and they don't know what you mean, they may not be current on the developments in their industry. The answer should be, "That isn't in effect yet, but I will get it to you when I get one."
Once more, government is making everything we do … (0 comments)

falmouth ma real estate: Julia O'Malley-Keyes is an Amazing Artist! - 09/09/09 04:56 AM
We had the Falmouth MA Cape CodMLS tour this morning. One of the homes for sale is owned by Julia O'Malley-Keyes. The home is actually a good value, but the home is filled with her art!
While the 4 bedroom 2 bath Cape style home is cozy, and the aparently buildable lot is an interesting added value, her paintings that look like photographs are very pleasantly distracting! She has the gift of being able to make her brush appear to be a photograph.
I found her on the Internet, but the duplicates of her realistic paintings that are on her site, … (0 comments)

falmouth ma real estate: Falmouth MA Assessing Notes - 09/03/09 06:52 AM
On Wednesday, Trish Favuli from the Falmouth Assessor's office met with the MLS tour attendees and answered questions. Here are my notes:
The fiscal values for 2010 will be based on sales in 2008.  But, the new tax rate won't be calculated until the town meeting members decide if there will be a newer higher meals and room tax.  New assessments will be based on sale values.  Foreclosures are not used when comparing properties in the assessor's office.
Some betterments do not show up online (nor on telnet) - so beware when researching prospective listings. The New Silver Beach betterment will … (0 comments)

falmouth ma real estate: Hollywood East is Greener than the California Desert! - 06/02/09 04:39 AM
The planers of Hollywood East are working hard to not only build green, but to have planned green from the beginning. In the clip below there are MIT techies studying ways to help plan Plymouth Rock Studios inot a green development.
A green development is one that incorporates conservation with use and function. Sort of green feng shui. (I wonder if the word function comes from feng shui?)
One of the goals of the Hollywood East developers is to build an exemplary studio complex that can be studied from all kinds of bulding perspectives. From cities and towns that want to grow to … (0 comments)
