Cape Cod Real Estate In The Winter
Buying a home on Cape Cod or anywhere in New England in January is the best time to buy. The weather is frigid, some homes are unheated, do not have electricity or water, but consider this is a valid sign of a motivated seller. Consider hiring a local Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) and bundle up. Last weekend was the busiest weekend since January 2006 in our office. Our agents prepared tours of homes, condominiums and building lots for investors, second home buyers, first time buyers and moving back to the Cape Cod area buyers. Some of these properties are being offered at 25% -30% off spring market prices. Offers are coming in like wildfire!
Most popular now is the Historic Hyannis Waterfront District which is currently in revitalization. New street lights, store fronts, restaurants, community centers, a railroad and transportation center are all within a mile radius of the harbor. For under $200,000 a buyer can literally steal a three bedroom property over 1500 square feet on town sewer! Also, in this area are new state of the art condominiums located in town with garages for walkers and wanderers that hate driving.
Where else in New England can you live this close to the ocean for under $500,000? Our quality of life is wonderful, the salt sea air is rejuvenating and we have some of the best health care in the country. So, get on your winter britches and start shopping for a new Cape Cod property today. Or, in 5 years you'll be wishing you bought that place on the Cape for a song!
