New England - Along The Shore

N

ew England is truly a very special place to live with more varied choices of distinctly different landscapes than anywhere in the country today. There are very few if any places in the U.S. that offer great city living with country life close by and just north some of the most picturesque mountains that offer great recreation and excellent choices for living. With over 500 miles of coastline, 1200 lakes and 5000 plus islands the New England region is mostly about life along the south shore. The highest concentration of our population here in New England is along the coastline with easy access to the shore. It is quite frankly our most valued natural resource and provides us all with some of the finest seafood anywhere in the world today. It is quintessential New England. Just south of Boston throughout the Southcoast regions of Massachusetts and Rhode

Island small cities and towns offer uncongested choices in rural living with easy access to our cities for business and employment. The So Shore from Hingham to the Cape as well as South Bristol County and Rhode Island also offer some of the best value in coastal real estate anywhere in the country. While waterfront living is still very pricy and out of reach in many New England regions the Southcoast is still affordable and a very solid investment in uncertain times. With great access to Boston, Providence, Cape Cod and the islands this region is truly is an untapped market with less congestion and strong infrastructure to support growth. With planned rail access expansion, affordable prices and plenty of open space the Southcoast region is positioned to handle what’s ahead. Take some time when looking for your next home and look around, there are so many choices along the shore.

Featuring Certified | Energy Star Homes

How New Homes Earn the ENERGY STAR

To earn the ENERGY STAR, a home must meet strict guidelines for energy efficiency set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Homes achieve this level of performance through a combination of energy-efficient improvements, including:

• Effective Insulation Systems • High-Performance Windows • Tight Construction and Ducts • Efficient Heating and cooling Equipment • ENERGY STAR Certified Lighting and Appliances To ensure that a home meets ENERGY STAR guidelines, third-party verification by a certified Home Energy Rater (or equivalent) is required. This Rater works closely with the builder throughout the construction process to help determine the needed energy-saving equipment and construction techniques and conduct required on-site diagnostic testing and inspections to document that the home is eligible to earn the ENERGY STAR label. Construction Example: Cape with all the bells and whistles and a two car attached garage $349,900. PROUDLY BUILT BY: AJ Sousa Construction

By Anthony Fireman

Markets are on the Mend According to recent reports, it looks like the residential real estate market is finally turning for the better. For example, according to the National Association of Realtors, foreclosures are at a 5-year low. In addition, Massachusetts's Association reports 14 consecutive months of sales growth. Likewise, August's pending home sales, the most pure measure of buyer demand, was 4,717, the highest level since April 2010. These are important statistics considering single family inventories across Massachusetts have fallen by 22%. Even more impressive, as major political and economic headwinds blow, the market keeps chugging along. So what does all of this mean for Southern New Englanders and the Fall Market? The most important take-a-way is each market performs at its own pace and in its own way. You must remember real estate is a local business so no two markets are alike. South Dartmouth is a great example. The data doesn't make the case for a robust market.

Ken Mongeon - Owner/Broker - KAM Realty

July 2012 2012 NEHomeLife.com | November

Between 2009 and 2011, fourth quarter sales have been no more than 15 transactions at best. And, believe it or not, this is great news. Since the start of the economic crisis, South Dartmouth has been insulated by the flood of foreclosures. On the other hand, Fall River had 261and New Bedford, a whopping 442. South Dartmouth, 16. Why the difference? Simple. South Dartmouth is considered a trade-up market. Ken Mongeon, a 25-year industry veteran and Owner/Broker of New Bedford's KAM Realty. He believes that first-time homebuyers can help South Dartmouth. “We have a lot of investors buying short sales and flipping them,” says Mongeon. “This is good news for South Dartmouth because it's not full of short sales. The truth is, we actually need the first-time homebuyers to help everyone move up the sales chain.” While South Dartmouth's market saw minimal damage, Providence, RI* is another story. The Fall fourth quarter numbers over the previous three years haven't been pretty. Sales

Victoria Doran - Coldwell Banker President Elect RI Board of Realtors


bounced between 20 and 30 transactions. At the end of 2011, houses sold in 89 days. Likewise, average sales prices fell 14% to $124,000 and many properties, sold or not, were discounted roughly $23,000. However, this year's 4th quarter has started markedly well. Thus far, 5 transactions closed. On the face of it, 5 isn't much. However, these dwellings sold in 50 days. Be that as it may, as of this writing 6 properties have buyer contracts. Thus, Providence may see 100 trades this year which will be the highest sales volume since 2009. Victoria Doran is a Broker and REALTOR® with 28-years of experience working with Coldwell Banker Real Estate and Brokerage, Barrington East Side. Doran sees today's buyers are beginning to understand how the market is changing. “People are finally getting that rates are low and prices are great,” says Doran. “Although it’s turning into a seller’s market, we do have about 8 months of inventory to get through.” While the Providence market is expanding, Cape Cod’s Falmouth market is too. In 2009, the bulk of the sales were between $150,000 and $500,000. Today, sales between $700,000 and $750,000 is not uncommon even though the market time is greater than 200 days. Incidentally, in the $1 mm to $1.5 mm price point interesting. Only 7 or 8 deals have closed over the past three years. Furthermore, these homes have taken a year or more to sell. In 2010, the average was 511 days. This year, 11 homes sold and the market time has plunged 143 days, an understated 60% drop.

Gina Wood - Kinlin Grover Real Estate

Gina Wood has been an agent at Kinlin Grover Real Estate in Osterville for over 12 years. She sees a bustling market for investors. She says, “Investors are scooping up one, two and three bedroom homes to rent. From a lifestyle perspective, downtown Falmouth is happening for it's shops and restaurants. Also, people like living there because it's close to the bridge.” *Providence statistics include East Providence. NOTE: Market data has been provided by Multiple Listing Service Property Information Network. 2012 Fourth Quarter numbers are through 10/16/2012

What’s New at United Better Homes By Keith Fitzsimmons, General Manager

The fall is always an exciting time of year in the home improvement industry. Business is at it's peak, the seasons are changing, the kids are back in school. Like every fall season, this usually means a big boost in home improvements and energy efficient renovations. As always, in order to help those types of requests, we have our UBH Lifetime Bundle Warranty, our online upfront pricing, and our top notch certified installations. We have also added a few new additions to the company. So here's a little bit on the changes at United Better Homes in regards to the company, the products we offer, and the benefits for our customers. We are about to unveil our brand new website. We wanted to make this the most user friendly site in the industry and we truly feel like we did with pricing, appointment request, free estimate tool and examples of jobs we 5252

NEHomeLife.com 2012 NEHomeLife.com| July | November 2012

completed that you're looking for. The biggest feature in my mind is the mini presentation you can give yourself. Pick any product, go to a page that gives all the product specs, see the product and at the end, you get a price. Go figure! A home improvement company giving out pricing to a person we've never spoken to! To us, that is being helpful. I feel that consumers deserve to have an idea about what they are paying for and how much they are paying for it before somebody asks them to buy it. So check out unitedbetterhomes.com, price out what you like for windows, look at our work, set an estimate or call us when you finish, we hope you love the site. Another benefit on the site comes from a new sponsorship between United Better Homes and the Providence Bruins. As a proud sponsor of the P-Bruins, you are able to take advantage


of a special ticket offer – our website viewers will have the ability to receive “Buy One Get One Free” Providence Bruins tickets for select home games at the Dunkin' Donuts Center. Check our site often to see these exciting offers. This is available to anyone browsing the internet so enjoy the game. In product news, we are fully up and running with the Infinity From Marvin product. I have to say, this product is getting rave reviews from people we

talk to. We have also become an authorized James Hardie dealer for RI and Southern Mass. So that means the same high quality work, Lifetime Bundle Warranty, and upfront pricing will be applied to those that want to see fiber cement siding. Hardie Board is one of the longest lasting, most visually appealing siding products that you can put on the exterior of your home and we are proud to be chosen by them to install their product in the area.

And last but not least in customer news, we have partnered with NE Homelife to offer a $5000.00 window makeover. Starting October 1st, 2012, visit nehomelife. com and unitedbetterhomes.com. Click on the promo and fill out the required fields. Even better, all participants will receive a $500.00 coupon that can be used this fall off the purchase of $5000 or more. So in a sense, anybody that is looking for home improvements before the years end is a winner. One lucky entry will win $5000.00 on January 2, 2012. So I'd like to wish you all good luck, and we hope to hear from you all soon.

What is the secret to having an organized home? Systems! by Kristin M. Carcieri-MacRae

How many times have you started an organizing project and 3 hours later you found you have made no progress and are in a bigger mess than when you started? Sound like something you have done before? It's all about focusing on the task at hand

Check out these 10 tips to avoid distractions:

1. Mark your organizing project on your calendar just as you would schedule an appointment. 2. Try to disconnect yourself from social media. 3. Try to limit any other distractions, i.e, phone calls, pets, kids, spouse, tv, etc. 4.Focus. Once you start organizing it is easy to veer off and do other things. 5. Instead of picking up an item and moving it to another area of the house, keep piles. When you are finished move the piles to other areas. 6. Try to stay in the area you are working. 7. Don't spend too much time deciding whether to keep something. If you can't decide, put it aside and move on. Save it until the end. 8. If you are organizing paper, try not to read full articles or get started in reading magazines. 9. It's ok to reminisce with sentimental items, but don't let it zap your time. Decide whether to keep or toss and then move on. 10. If you do find yourself always getting distracted, call a professional organizer. Without distractions, your project will take you half the time. You will have finished with more energy. You will be motivated and energized to continue and move forward with the rest of the home or office. Organize!! Energize!!!

Organizing in RI We organize, you energize!

Cambria is only available through exclusive dealers (and cannot be found in Home Centers.) Maintenance-free - Cambria means that it never needs polishing or sealing. Granite needs to be sealed once or twice a year as chemical sealers wear off. Plus, unlike granite, Cambria surfaces are resistant to stains. Bacteria Resistant - Certified as safe for use as a food preparation surface, Cambria is as hygienic as stainless steel. It's nonporous surface makes it impossible for bacteria to penetrate and grow.

Strength - Quartz is one of the hardest minerals found in nature. Cambria is 93% natural quartz, and is stronger than granite. Our 2012 goal is first and foremost to focus on you – our customer! We want to “Be The Change.” We want to revamp and reinstitute the “American Dream.” Our focus is to provide our customers with the “Best” and most reliable product(s) available in the marketplace!

tate agents say a clean, well-designed kitchen with modern appliances and quality elements can sell a house quicker than nearly any other aspect of the home. Modern, well-designed bathrooms are another big selling point; where quantity and quality both count. Homes that have two or three bathrooms with quality fixtures sell faster than homes with only one bathroom. Needless to say, a luxurious master bathroom adjoining the master bedroom is even more impressive. While bathrooms and kitchens can represent some of the most costly types of home renovations, they are also more likely to pay for themselves.


Kitchen Remodeling Tips

Consider basic room functions. Make sure remodeling or renovation project will accommodate one or more of the room’s functions. For instance, the kitchen’s primary functions are food preparation, storage, and clean up. Make sure the classic work triangle is incorporated into the kitchen floor plan – with the kitchen sink, refrigerator, and stove arranged in a triangular pattern. This layout saves unnecessary steps, while ensuring ease of movement and convenience. Install a granite counter top – or one made from other natural stone. Stone counter tops installed using quality workmanship improves kitchen appearance and usability. They can also be a huge selling point.

Should I use a Realtor? by Peter DeFusco

I am often asked this question by clients who either have a current home to sell or are looking to purchase a home. I always give them the same answer, a resounding YES! People think that they can market their homes as well as a Realtor can and that is a huge misconception. Realtors are trained professionals whose job it is to understand the local market and price homes accordingly. There is more that goes into selling a home than just setting a price and putting a for sale sign in the yard. Especially in the current market we find ourselves in. The property needs to be priced correctly, which usually means the homeowner needs to put their sentimental feelings aside and really understand the market, which is where a non-biased realtor comes in. More often than not, homes that are for sale by owner are not priced correctly. That can make all the difference in the world when it comes to selling your home. A Realtor will do a market analysis to come up with a price that the market

will support. A Realtor has more avenues to advertise your home than a homeowner, from newspapers, local magazines and the internet as well as open houses. Also Realtors can place the property on MLS, Multiple Listing Service, which gives all Realtors access to the property information that they in turn can pass along to their buyers Aside from marketing the properties, Realtors also have other responsibilities that comes with selling a home. If the property is located in Massachusetts and has a septic system, than the system needs to be tested and pass what is called Title V. This can be a daunting task if you don’t know where to turn. A Realtor is also responsible for getting the smoke detectors certified by the local fire department as well as any final water bills that need to be paid. They schedule an average of 10 showings on each property before it is sold. Which is time consuming and can be frustrating for a consumer to tackle this on their own. If you are looking for a home a Realtor

is invaluable. Realtors literally have access to thousands of properties on a daily basis and can sift through the properties that don’t meet what the buyer is looking for. Realtors have access to MLS and can email the buyer properties that fit their needs. Their experience also helps the buyer avoid any properties that my look good on the outside but may have potential issues down the road. Realtors are a very important part of the home buying and selling process and it is a smart move to work with a Realtor.

Home Away From Home - Florida The Sunshine State is on Sale

They say the most difficult thing in real estate is to time the market and buy at the perfect time. With values in the Northeast and in many other parts of the country stabilizing, and in many cases showing gains, it may be a perfect time to look for that “Home Away From Home�. Florida is quintessentially by all measures has one of the most opportune markets in the country right now. And lets face it, in the middle of Northeast winters there is nothing like a recharge in the Sunshine State...in your own place! In todays mobile world we can work from anywhere, and many professionals split their time between residences without missing a beat. Florida is one of the few markets today where values are almost 50% of market highs in the mid 2000’s. Basically, this means you are getting twice the house you could buy just 6 years ago. When was the last time you missed a half-price sale! In addition, amenities like golf, tennis, beach access and recreational facilities are included in many properties at little or no additional expense. The selection is still great and in many communities the newer development builders have lowered prices drastically to meet 78

market prices for new homes and condominiums. With the lowest interest rates in 50 years you can literally buy a second home right now for about the same expense monthly as a luxury car payment. So let me get this right, a new BMW for $699 a month that will be worth almost nothing in 10 years compared to buying a new home in Florida for the same cost that I will have for years to come and my family can enjoy, that will most likely double in value in 10 years, Duh! The Florida real estate market is starting to pick up momentum. Buyers from overseas are taking advantage of low prices and great exchange rates that make it an even better deal. The Pound Sterling is 1.85, to the dollar exchange rate it translates to buying a $200,000 property at just under $120,000. And the Euro at 1.57 to a dollar is great as well. There are great deals everywhere and what better excuse could there be for a long weekend in the Sunshine State this fall or winter. Take a look at some of the great deals in this issue and call a Florida realtor today to help you get organized with choices before you get there.
