Newcomers to Cape Cod Real Estate

Buying Real Estate?

 

When first the idea of moving to Cape Cod enters our consciousness, we think of all the pleasures the Cape has to offer beaches, golfing, boating, bird watching, etc. Then, the worry sets in. After leaving old friends, who will we spend time with to enjoy this new Cape Cod life? Will we be isolated? Will we regret the move? The answer is Absolutely No!

Real Estate Short Sales

Pertinent short sale update

Due to the shoddy title work that was done in the previous few years, many title issues are surfacing that are taking an inordinate amount of time to resolve and may, in fact, not be resolvable. There has been much talk about new rules and regulations that are supposed to make short sale purchases more "user friendly". These rules are in place, but, they are not necessarily being adhered to by the Lenders involved. Therefore, it is still taking a lot of time to move deals along. Additionally, FHA rules are tightening up for Buyers and properties. It is harder to get a Buyer qualified and distressed properties are not as easy to finance as they were in the past.

In sum, while short sales are often priced attractively, they are not for the faint of heart. They should be approached only by Buyers who have financing in place, have a strong stomach and are patient. Good luck!

Client Testimonials

Ned and the entire Chatelain team could not have been more professional, helpful and good at what they do. We had a challenging sale, given the time of year and condition of the house. Ned took all the appropriate steps to market the house in an aggressive manner and addressed all the details once qualified buyers were found. We especially appreciated how available Ned was to meet certain parties at the house (cleaners; care takers; movers; etc.), given that we had since left the Cape.  Please give Ned a call….you won’t be disappointed.
