Introducing ROYCE, the second puppy we are raising for Canine Companions for Independence (CCI). He is a purebred black lab and an absolute love. He will be ours for 18 months until we turn him over to CCI to change someone's life, as his "brother" Riesling did 3 years ago.

Neighborhood Sales Activity
March 1, 2018 through March 31, 2018
As Reported by Public Records
Sales in the five Villages of the town of Dennis reflect the most significant market trend in the past 15 years as inventory maintains historically low levels. Compared to 2017, inventory is down year-to-year almost 30% as prices continue to climb. Never before in recent history have Sellers seen such a golden opportunity to list and sell their homes quickly. Simultaneously, Buyers must be prepared to "pounce" when properties become available. The adage "it won't last long" is no longer a sales strategy because it's a FACT. 86% of sales in February were below $682,000, as the market shift to "bargains" is at an all time high.
