SPRING FORWARD .......
The Spring Market has arrived and here in Falmouth, MA where I Sell and List properties (www.peterhawley.com) activity is on the rise, Open Houses are very busy, and with the new $8,000 Tax Credit, Low Interest Rates, a great inventory to select from I have noticed that many potential customers are starting to realize that this is a good time to BUY!
We are all numb with the constant flow of housing articles printed each day, and most take a broad view of the country. Real estate is a local issue, and here on Cape Cod we have not experienced the plummeting values of property. This is not to say that we are unaffected by the housing market slump, of course we are, but we have not had the dramatic fall in values as many areas have.
Foreclosures continue to enter the market and these are great Buying Opportunities for many who now can get into the market, using the $8,000 Tax Credit for First Time Home Buyers, finding excellent fixed rate mortgages and with a little elbow grease, Home Ownership is within reach.
The arrival of the Red Winged Black Bird that swoops through the marsh has always been my first clear indication that spring is here. The Sun setting later each day is wonderful and walking along the beach, in late afternoon is the best reminder of why I love Cape Cod. It is getting time to fine tune my bike so I can ride on the Rail Trails, which I am determined to do as often as possible this year, and hopefully I will see you walking or riding along the Edge of America with me.
I am available at firstname.lastname@example.org, and if you want to explore the housing market or share with me your favorite walks and bike rides on the Cape, I would love to hear from you.
