      Cape Cod Real Estate

      Detailed, up-to-date knowledge of:

      • Current real estate market dynamics that are influencing prices
      • Cape Cod property has become increasingly more complex as
        property values rise and prices stabilize.

      Current Cape Cod Real Estate Trends
      Cape Cod is in the midst of a changing and variable trend in Real Estate Sales. With prices up 7% from 2013 and Cape Cod property sales down 6%, more opportunities exist for Buyers to find the home that meets their need. During the past year, the average Cape Cod home sells in over 143 days and the number of properties for sale exceeds 2,800 throughout the Cape.  The inventory of properties for sale is approximaely 10 months at the current rate of sale and the selling price averages 89% of list price.

      Currently Available Build-able Lots
      The Cape Cod area in 2014 had over 600 residential lots for sale. Many of these lots have received building permits for specific homes. Others may face a long process of permitting to achieve a building permit.

      Occupancy Trends
      Cape Cod has grown from a vacation community to a more year-round community. Approximately, 60% of the Cape is occupied year-round which is up from 40% just 10 years ago.

      Current Residential Demographics
      With a median family income of $60,000, Cape Cod has a population with a median age of 42 years old and approximately 53% of adults are married. Some 63% have completed some college and live in homes with a median price of $330,000.

      Historical Zones
      The Old King's Highway Regional District Act was passed into Law by the State of Massachusetts in 1973 to preserve and protect the historic appearance of Cape Cod. The Old King's Highway Historic Committees review all plans for construction and renovation of structures north of Route 6 the Mid-Cape Highway.  Covering over 80 square miles, the Old King's Highway Historic District is one of the largest in the United States and extends from Sandwich to Orleans.  The south side of the Cape has certain sections of its geography controlled by Historic Committees such as South Dennis Historic Committee.

      Historical Zone Regulations
      The Historic Committees regulate the appearance, size and location of structures from single family homes and commercial buildings to sheds, barns, fences, landscapes, walls and signs. Their main purpose is to review the historic appropriateness of how structures will appear to the public including paint colors, roofing, siding, window configurations and the location of structures on individual lots. The committees concentrate on making sure that the size or mass of structures is consistent with the location or setting that surrounds each property.

      Benefits of Historic Regulation
      Historic Committees on Cape Cod provide a consistent review board for all construction, renovation, repair and remodeling. The greatest value is that what is seen by each resident or visitor is the consistent appearance of what is appropriate to the Cape. While not requiring all homes, and structures to look the same, the Historic Committee prevents the construction of anything that simply looks out of place. Therefore, preserving what is beautiful on Cape Cod forever and extending into the future the design and construction style of the antique homes of our forefathers.

      Cape Cods First Residents
      Cape Cod homes are a living record of Cape Cod history, a story begun in ancient times and exhibits a changing pattern of style and usage found nowhere else in the World. Beginning with the Pilgrims, Cape Cod was named by the famous Sea Captain Gosnold in 1602. The Pilgrims brought with them little furniture and architectural styles dating back to cozy English Cottages. Cape Cod homes also emphasized privacy for those travel weary settlers. Sea Captains developed and their families developed styles that would guard the sea in expectations of the return of the ships hence the name widows watch for majestic roof decks to look seaward.

      History of Building Trends
      Initially, the use of wood became the preferred building material because of availability and necessity. Shingles and clapboard helped create the style and the roof designs and other design features were for protection from the weather. Simplicity and frugality dominated the trends from historic times through today.

      Evolving Building Styles
      The Cape Cod style home has evolved to allow for expanded floor plans and modern living. Noted for uniquely designed additions that often were attached at sharp angles to existing homes, the requirements for families to gather inside a Great Room or family room with large dining rooms changed the exterior architecture.

      Preparing Your Home for Sale

      A seller should never underestimate the importance of making a good first impression on a potential buyer. Research shows that Buyers make up their mind within 40 seconds of walking in your front  door! Here are a few simple tips that can help increase your home's appeal and value:

      An Appealing Exterior:

      • Keep the front walkway swept.
      • Remove newspapers, bikes and toys from the front walk or yard.
      • Park extra cars away from the property.
      • Trim back the shrubs.
      • Apply a fresh coat of exterior paint if necessary.
      • Clean windows and window coverings.
      • Keep plumbing and all appliances in working order.
      • Maintain all sealants (sink, tub, window, shower, etc.) in good condition.
      • Make sure roof and gutters are in good condition.
      • Mow the lawn frequently and plant flowers; hire a professional landscaping company if necessary.

      A Clean and Inviting Interior:

      • Keep the kitchen and bathrooms spotless.
      • Vacuum carpets and keep floor surfaces clean.
      • Accent living and dining rooms with freshly cut flowers.
      • Put dishes and laundry away.
      • Make beds.
      • Open drapes and turn on lights to enhance the atmosphere.
      • Keep closets neat.
      • Put toys away.
      • Switch off the television.
      • Keep pets out of the way and pet areas clean and odor-free.
      • Make safe jewelry, cash, prescription medication and other valuables.
      • Avoid clutter to enhance the spaciousness of your home.

      Generally speaking, potential buyers usually feel more comfortable when owners are not present. If an interested party is unaccompanied by an agent and requests to see your property, please refer them to your real estate professional for an appointment. If you are leaving town, even for a weekend, remember to leave the number where you can be reached so that offers can be made promptly.
