Blog :: 07-2015

After more than 25 years of living, working and playing on Cape Cod we have a lot to share about the area.  Our blog topics run the gamut from fun things to do, working with contractors, and homeownership tips and tricks, so check back frequently to see what's new.  If you have questions or would like to learn more about Cape Cod or owning property on this beautiful peninsula please contact us for more information and to set up a showing for any listing. 

Sounds of Summer

Summer is in full swing here on the Cape.  And along with the gorgeous weather and crowds of happy beachgoers, the lively outdoor music scene is at its height!  

Nearly every public outdoor space in the mid-Cape area hosts its own Summer concert series - the Dennis Port village green alone has twice-weekly free concerts, and Drummer Boy Park, Brooks Park, and the Dennis Village Green on 6A all host their own series. 

So when you get off the beach, don't head right back to the cottage - swing by a park or green somewhere, pull up a beach chair, and enjoy the sounds of summer!

    CHANGE COMING TO REAL ESTATE CLOSINGS

    Changes are coming on October 3, 2015 to real estate closing procedures and to the closing forms. These changes will impact buyers and sellers.  Extra time may be necessary between a deal being struck and the closing date in order to meet the new regulations.  Both buyers and sellers will be required to present documents requested in a very timely fashion. Otherwise, closings will be delayed. 

    In the past, estimates were given to buyers for their closing costs. Some wiggle room was allowed on those estimates.  Beginning in October, lenders will be accountable to the exact charges listed on the forms presented to buyers in the initial mortgage process and to come within 10% on many of the other charges.  Additionally, there will be no changes allowed to closing documents at the closing table. 

    So, everyone involved with closings will have to provide accurate documentation in a timely manner from the get-go in order for closing delays to be avoided.
