Seaside Living in New England By TR Branco

From Boston To Watch Hill in Westerly RI you will find seaside living at its best with dozens of great communities that offer spectacular homes and estates with the flavor and charm that is only New England. The coastal regions along eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island are home to some of the most magnificent communities anywhere in New England. Seaside life is in the blood of us all as we began our trek from the old world to the new hundreds of years ago. Plymouth, Massachusetts where the pilgrims found a new beginning, is one of the most beautiful seaside communities in the region. Ask anyone who has ever left this region for inland areas and they will tell you, they miss the coastal living, the charm and the flavor that is only New England. Coastal New England is home to some of the most magnificent communities that offer a quality of life that is truly spectacular by all measures in today’s market. Ocean access, pristine beaches, wonderful parks and recreation are just the beginning. If you’re looking for small town character and seaside living in New England this is the place for you. Along Eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island from greater Boston south

to Rhode Island cities & towns have found a way to preserve the past and manage growth while maintaining the pure natural essence of the region. Historic homes and farms dot the landscape of these coastal regions. Over the last 50 years new development has been brisk in these areas, significantly adding a wide range of home choices and styles but the quality of life and character of the region have been preserved.

The South Shore The South Shore region is largely a collection Boston suburban bedroom towns that share in Massachusetts colonial history. Most of the cities and towns were settled in the early 17th century and have historic buildings of that period. From Quincy to Plymouth the region continues to grow and thrive economically and offer residence great access to waterfront and recreation and seaside living 19 May 2014 | NEHomeLife.com 19 July 2012 | NEHomeLife.com


at its best. You will find communities that offer a wide range of price points all just a short distance to Boston and Cape Cod. Jack Conway left his job as a sports writer for the former Boston Record American in the mid 1950s to begin what would be a life-long real estate career. Jack established his business during a statewide economic slump, but a personal 12-hour a day work schedule, seven days a week, soon reaped its rewards in the South Shore region. Today dozen of great realtors service the South Shore region and offer buyers and sellers unlimited choices in almost all communities throughout the region.

The South Coast Today you can live there in houses designed with strong European influences. Howe Allen of Fairhaven’s Howe Allen Realty has been in the real estate business since 1985. Allen says,” there are many opportunities to buy new and antique residences in town. Price points are affordable for people looking for antique homes from varying architectural styles such as Greek revival, Federal and many others. Home prices range from $300K-700K depending upon size, condition, and location.” Just west of Fairhaven, South Dartmouth’s Padanaram Village has a great history all its own. Padanaram is located along the Apponagansett River and is in the National Register of Historic Places. Padanaram is a wonderful seaside community looking out over the Elizabeth Islands and Buzzards Bay. Anne Whiting, the Broker/Owner of Anne Whiting Real Estate, "Many of the homes in the village Padanaram date back to the early 1800’s,” says Whiting. “The architecture in most of them is original which is appealing to some buyers who do not want a cookie cutter kind of house.” While there are plenty of places to settle in Dartmouth, Padanaram, which is in South Dartmouth is by far one of the most unique communities in the region and the most sought after by buyers. Whiting says, “On the whole, Padanaram offers a serene setting 20

with the harbor just steps away and the local flavor of village shops and restaurants.” Westport, MA so named because it was the western most port in the original Bay Colonies, is home to one of the most magnificent south facing state beaches in New England, Horseneck Beach and Gooseberry Island. It is also a coastal community that has comprised of small village regions along the Slocum and Westport Rivers where grain mills and farms and fishing industries were prevalent along the shore. Westport is unique in the sense that the village area or Main Road area is the center of the town with quaint shops, historic homes and small restaurants. The Point region of the village is one of the town’s most historic areas. Just west, a region in town called Acoaxet along the western branch of the Westport River has beautiful seaside homes along the river and ocean front homes on Buzzards Bay at the point. There are great choices for both historic and new homes in town with price points in almost all ranges. Laurie Ammann, Manager of the William Raveis office in Westport, said, “Westport is a very popular waterfront destination that offers buyers in today’s market an opportunity to live in a town that offers unsurpassed quality of life in a quaint New England community.

East Passage Rhode Island The coastal communities of Little Compton and Tiverton RI sit along the shores of Narragansett Bay on the East Passage of the Sakonnet River. Originally part of the Plymouth Bay Colonies in Massachusetts these towns secured their own decree and were annexed to Newport County, RI in the 1700’s along with Bristol, RI. Little Compton’s South Shore & Goosewing beaches nudge up against the state line of Massachusetts, one of the few 2 state beaches in New England. Little Compton has often been referred to as “Rhode Island’s Secret Coast”, it is just out of the way and people who live here like that just fine. Little Compton, RI is a place that remains very much the same from a bygone


time. It is truly one of the most quaint and beautiful places in all of New England. Rosemary Bowen Broker / Owner at Spinnaker Real Estators said,” The Little Compton market has evolved over the years. Specific regions in town like Sakonnet Point, Warrens Point, Taylors Lane and Billy’s Ledge have become very exclusive and properties are always in limited supply. It is as if Little Compton is becoming the little Nantucket of Rhode Island. This town is a very close knit community with a strong history, it is a wonderful place to live and raise a family”. There are only about 1600 residences and less than 4000 people who live in this closely knit community. At the southern tip of town Sakonnet Point juts out into the ocean. The famous, Sakonnet Golf Club, designed by Donald Ross

is surrounded by ocean views and beautiful seaside cottages and homes along the mouth of the river. Further up the river the town of Tiverton abuts Little Compton and quaint regions like Tiverton’s 4 Corners and Main Road along the river are some of the town’s more picturesque areas. The Fogland Beach area is a very popular recreational area and offers numerous waterfront properties as well with beautiful west facing sunsets. If you are looking for one of the finest regions in New England to buy your next home with all the amenities of country and coastal living the this region is a must see. With easy highway access to all southern New England’s metro areas this is one of the best-kept secrets in real estate in the region. In our next issue Seaside Living will explore regions along the RI West Passage and South County.

Bristol County Forecast Looks Bright by NEHLStaff

U.S. Census Bureau's 2013 County-level population was released on March 27, 2014, and the trends look very positive for regions south of Boston. Bristol County will see significant growth. Norfolk and Suffolk counties to the north continue to have severe housing shortages in median price homes ranging from $300,000 - $400,000. These issues will be a major driving force in the future of Bristol County Massachusetts.

A look at The Numbers By 2020, 170,000 new homes are expected to be built statewide in Massachusetts with over 43% of them in rural Southeast Massachusetts cities and towns. With better tax incentives and development deals many companies have relocated from greater Boston south as well as out of state firms as well. The newest and most telling trend is the increase in north to south commuter traffic both on highways and public transportation. Southcoast rail will finally work economically as a two way street, driven by steady growth in both population and industry in the Bristol County region.

Statistical Realities From 1970-2011 Bristol County Massachusetts grew from just under 450,000 residents to over 550,000 a 23 % increase. In the 48

same period Bristol County employment stats grew from just under 190,000 jobs to well over 270,000 a 42% increase Personal Income trends in Bristol county have increased by 135% over the last 20 years and continue to rise with business development and housing growth. In the last three years over 17,000 people moved south into Bristol County from other regions. The most telling statistic in Bristol County may be a 25% increase in grocery stores in just the last 10 years.

State Migration With median price points for homes in Norfolk, Suffolk and Middlesex counties pushing the $400,000 range there is literally only one place to go, and that is south.


Median Home prices in Bristol County in 2000 were $147,000, Just 13 years later in 2013 they have increased to over$280,0000. The average middle class household income in greater Boston is about $135,000, which presents a real economic stress to growing families for housing cost. Bristol County and the Southcoast region offer a 30% savings in housing cost along with a better quality of life and far less traffic.

In Lakeville, Mansfield and Attleboro the MBTA connection to greater Boston market has opened up new opportunities for families to live in Bristol County towns. Easy access through public transportation to great jobs in the metro Boston market has already lead to sustained growth in the region. Add the quality of life, affordable homes, open space and access to great schools, shopping and far less traffic than metro Boston markets and you have a formula for growth that’s unmatched in the state

A County on the Rise Bristol County offers some the best value in the state for homeowners. These small rural towns have a quality of life and great proximity that make them popular choices for families in the Southcoast region as well as those who work both in Providence and the Boston markets. With their prime location and small town charm is no surprise that they are seeing steady growth and high demand with buyers.

the main indicator of the economic health on any community. Bristol County has a great rural feel, good schools, affordable taxes and plenty of open space. Quite simply in today’s real estate market this adds up to value for residents. The States 20/20 Initiative gives us a real indication of the potential growth of this region. It is a clear plan that will change Bristol County in many ways. Development and growth will bring with it mandates in infrastructure improvements to support the increased population. As population grows so too will state funds and tax revenues for cities and towns. Job growth will also go along for the ride and most importantly a real estate boom in a region that has waited too long for prosperity.

GOLF COURSE LIVING // BY TIM BRANCO

It all Begins with The First Step

For everyone that loves the game of golf the ultimate dream is to live where you play. For many it means a home right here in New England and for others it’s a place to escape the cold northern winters in Florida or beyond. Like every journey in life, it begins with first step and that is visiting properties that fit your own criteria. A few years back I looked at a home located on a private club in Eastern Massachusetts that was a great house. To this day I wish I bought that property, it is now worth double what they were asking only 10 years ago. There is more to choose from in southern states and in Florida where thousands of golf courses and golf course communities offer endless choices at almost every price point. It is a little more of a challenge here in New England home cost are higher and inventories are low. Investment wise you will average much higher gains in the long run in the northeast of golf course home in a much less volatile market. There are wonderful golf course communities throughout New England to choose from that offer all levels of amenities to suit your individual needs. Price

points are in line with many developments that do not offer golf. It is a buyers market right now so in many facilities builders are offering great deals and added value especially on new homes. Golf Courses are great neighbors and 100 + acres of well maintained park like property abutting your home creates a wonderful environment for living and enjoying the great game of golf. Private golf course membership has become much more affordable in the last 10 years with many facilities offering all types of flexible categories of membership at their clubs. It is never too late to take up the game and golf offers great exercise for those that enjoy walking. The average golfer can walk up to five miles during an 18 hole round. If you dream of living on golf course then take the first step to that dream. It’s never been a better time to buy with low rates and great amenities being offered as incentives.

How Credit Affects Your Ability To Get A Mortgage by Peter DeFusco

Your credit is a still the major factor in determining if you will be approved for a mortgage. The way lenders asses your credit is by pulling your FICO scores from the three major credit bureaus, Experian, Trans Union, and Equifax. Each repository gives a numerical value to your credit which is known as your FICO score. Lenders will use the middle score to determine first if you are eligible and then what type of interest rate you may get. The three fico scores are always different because creditors sometimes only report to either one or two of the bureaus. The middle score gives the lender the best indication of your ability to pay the loan back.

Here’s how your score is determined: 35 percent is determined by your payment history. Do you regularly pay your bills or fines on time to any creditor that submits your information to the credit bureau? Even unpaid library fines, medical bills or parking tickets may appear here.

76

NEHomeLife.com | May 2014

30 percent is based on the amounts you owe each of your creditors, and how that compares with the total credit available to you or the total loan amount you took out. If you’re maxing out your credit cards, your score may suffer. 15 percent is based on the length of your credit history, both how long you’ve had each account and how long it’s been since you had any activity on those accounts. The fewer and older the accounts, the better (assuming you’ve made timely payments). 10 percent is based on how many accounts you’ve recently opened compared with the total number of your accounts, as well as the number of recent inquiries on your report made by lenders to whom you’ve applied for credit.Your score can drop if it looks as if you’re seeking several new sources of credit - a sign that you may be in financial trouble. The final 10 percent is determined by the types of credit used. Having installment debt - like

a mortgage, in which you pay a fixed amount each month - demonstrates that you can manage a large loan. But how you handle revolving debt, like credit cards, tends to carry more weight since it’s seen as more predictive of future behavior. It is crucial that you know your credit history before you apply for a mortgage. Your FICO score will determine what interest rate you qualify for. Until recently a credit score of 680 was considered

Call Today and Ask About All of our Great Mortgage Programs A plus, that has now changed. 740 is the new high water mark for qualifying for the lowest rates on a conventional loan. FHA, VA, and Mass Housing loans have lower FICO score requirement than conventional loans. If you are uncertain of what your score is you should meet with a loan officer to see where you stand. If your score is below the minimum required hope is not lost. By meeting with a trained mortgage professional you can get on a plan to fix your credit. It may take as little as 60 days depending on your circumstances. We at First Eastern are always available to meet and review a customer’s credit profile and if they are not quite ready to buy, put them on a plan to get there credit fixed. please call us for a free consultation.

The first step is to identify the two types of window treatments you may need; HARD- the functional window coverings such as blinds and SOFT- these are the decorative treatments made out of fabric. While common window coverings can work for just about any window style or size, unique treatments can be the most captivating. Designs that creatively use everyday materials in unexpected ways can make a huge impact on the look of a room. Steven Souza at Window Works in Swansea, MA is a master craftsman when it comes to window treatment for your home. For over 25 years

he has been providing homes and businesses in Southern New England with award winning products and services. “Advances in technology and design today offer consumers so much more to choose from and at very affordable prices. Professionally installed window treatments provide lasting solutions to beautify your home and ad value to your property as well,” said Steve. One way to add pattern to a room is at the windows. This is typically done with fabric, whether it’s voluminous swaths of drapery or tailored, functional shades. Both are excellent options, but there are other possibilities as well. Wooden blinds have become a very popular product in our line and they create a wonder-


ful ambience in any room and offer complete privacy as well. Window Works provides design consultants that will come to your home to advise you on what works best for each individual application and will handle measuring and samples of various styles and colors to suit your needs. Steve said, “ We take pride in our award winning service and products and fully guarantee all products and installations. We do not hire sub-contractors; our technicians install all our products only. I think the most common misconception that people have today is that the big box stores must be less expensive. The truth is you can have professional in home service and installation of window treatments and spend

about the same amount.” In our homes and businesses today window treatments provide us with function, design and style that make a very clear statement about the look and feel of the space we both live and work in. Great looking windows ad value and marketability to property and can be a huge advantage to selling a property a well. The first impression in any room is the light and the windows. “2013 was one of our busiest years in business and 2014 is starting off pretty much the same. It seems the economy has turned and people are investing in their homes with many updates and improvements, window treatments seem to be high on their list,” Steven said.

You will find the staff at Window Works to be friendly and professional, they offer options for almost any price point and guarantee all installations. Window Works can be reached at 508-677-1414 | windowworksMA.com May 2014 | NEHomeLife.com
