Southcoast Looking East By Timothy Branco

Plymouth, MA

Living in Plymouth County Massachusetts Plymouth County Massachusetts is one of New England most attractive regions and continues to be a popular choice by homebuyers throughout Southern New England. The county is home to just over 500,000 residents with the highest concentrated in Brockton and the coastal communities from Hingham south to Plymouth and Wareham. The current population of Plymouth County is younger than other counties in the region with the median age of 41. Plymouth County's median household income is $73,825, and the average household net worth is $698,010. 52% of Plymouth County's populations are long-term residents having lived in their homes for more than 5 years. A View of The Region Plymouth County in Massachusetts is peppered with scenic ponds, pine forests, cranberry bogs, and beaches. The region offers residents an array of amenities and an excellent quality of life with easy access to the metro Boston market. Plymouth holds a place of great prominence in American history, folklore and culture, and is known as "America's Hometown." Plymouth was the site of the colony founded in 1620 by the Pilgrims, passengers of

12 | March 2015

the famous ship the Mayflower. Plymouth is where New England was first established. It is the oldest municipality in New England and one of the oldest

White Cliffs, Plymouth

in the United States. The town has served as the location of several prominent events, the most notable being the First Thanksgiving feast. Plymouth served as the capital of Plymouth Colony from its founding in 1621 until the colony's merger with the Massachusetts Bay colony in 1691. While northern cities and towns in the county are somewhat densely populated most of Plymouth County consist of small towns with a great rural feel and lots of open space. South coastal communities

of Wareham, Marion, and Mattapoisett are as rich in history as Plymouth and offer some of the most pristine historical homes in Southern New England. Central county communities of Lakeville, Middleboro, Carver and Rochester have seen sharp increases in development and growth due to MBTA service in the region making the area much


Marion, MA

more accessible to points north and the greater Boston market. Plymouth county real estate trends continue to outpace many other regions in values, market stability with very broad selection of home choices in single-family residences and condominiums. There are fewer homes on the market, which is balancing the current buyer’s market with more of a seller’s market. This is making now a great time to buy and or sell in Plymouth County. Aside from home sales up and inventory down, home prices are also seeing

The Bay Club, Mattapoisett

an upturn. This is largely in part to fewer foreclosed properties on the market, allowing more bids on regularly listed homes. The median existing-home price jumped 10.1 percent from 2012 in the region and indications point toward more of the same moving forward.

A New Home Trend Today’s housing consumers are demanding new homes driving the construction industry south of Boston in Eastern Massachusetts. Housing Starts in 2014 increased nearly 13% in Southern New England, which includes single-family homes and condo’s; it is the largest rise in years in the industry in our region. What’s driving this boom is a growing need for homes that are more energy efficient and new designs that optimize space and living. While there are still plenty of homes on the market in the region, there are far less buyers willing to buy homes that require updating and major renovations. With the demands of life and time homebuyers today are opting for properties that are well maintained or new. Homes that are well maintained and priced correctly are currently bringing full priced offers and have far less time on the market than properties that require major updates. Builders for new homes are finding a better educated consumer looking for smaller homes with more features. A look at The Numbers By 2020 planners are predicting that 170,000

Cranberry Bogs

new homes will be built statewide in Massachusetts with over 47% of them in rural Southeast Massachusetts cities and towns. With better tax incentives and development deals many companies

innovating design as well as better planned home communities. Homebuyers have more choices than ever in condos, single-family homes and duplex properties. The days of home developments with hundreds of properties have long been replaced today with smaller and more intimate designed communities with better space planning and home layouts. Condos are designed not only with pools Plymouth Plantation

Marion, MA Robert Paul Properties

have relocated from greater Boston south and from out of state.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 Southern New England region.

A Look at The Marketplace Throughout Plymouth County there are a multitude of choices available for new homes and condos for buyers. Builders and developers throughout the region are introducing new


14 | March 2015 | July 2012

but also community centers for gatherings and celebrations. Well-designed homes communities offer more open space and eco friendly recreational areas that offer buffer zones and more intimate living. Smaller developments also create a much better feel for residents. One thing is for sure, Plymouth County will continue to be a popular choice for homebuyers in the region.

6 Reasons You May Want To Refinance Now by Peter DeFusco

Refinance to shorten the term of your loan. If you have a 30-year mortgage, now may be a great time to consider refinancing. With record low interest rates, you may find that a 15-year mortgage is not much more expensive than the 30-year loan payment you have been paying. Start by entering your information a mortgage calculator to see what your new payment might be. If your new estimated payment is feasible, consider contacting your mortgage professional at First Eastern Mortgage for a free in home mortgage review. A refinanced home from a 30-year mortgage at 5 percent to a 15 year mortgage at 3.25 percent only may increased your monthly payment by about $200 but is will save you ten of thousands in interest. Refinance to lower your interest rate. Right now, interest rates are near a record low. And as I write this, 30-year mortgage rates are hovering above 3 percent and 15year loans can be secured for an even lower rate. If your home is now financed at a higher interest rate, it may be a great time for you to consider refinancing. You could literally save tens of thousands of dollars just by taking the time to fill out the necessary paperwork and gather the needed documents. Take the initiative to contact your mortgage broker or check out the facts for your situation.

Refinance to lower your payment. Refinancing your mortgage at a lower interest rate could mean drastically reducing your payment and saving tens of thousands of dollars in interest. Lowering your mortgage payment could also free up hundreds of dollars per month that could be saved or invested. Although refinancing to lower your payment could increase the term of your loan, it could make sense in your particular situation. Refinance from an adjustable rate mortgage to a fixed rate loan. If you currently have an adjustable-rate mortgage, now may be the perfect time to refinance into a fixed-rate loan. Interest rates are low now, but they may not stay this low forever. Locking into a low fixed rate can protect you from rising interest rates in coming years. Additionally, a fixed payment is easier to plan and budget for. Refinance to cash out home equity. It’s a tempting proposition to cash out your home equity by refinancing your home. It could even be a great financial move in some circumstances. For instance, it may make sense to cash out some of your home equity in order to buy an investment property or start a business. It mostly depends on what you are trying to achieve and if you are someone who can manage your debts responsibly.


Get Rid of That PMI Many buyers purchase homes with less than 20% down and have to pay for private mortgage insurance as a result. PMI typically adds $25 to $95 per $100,000 borrowed to your monthly mortgage payment, depending on your down payment and credit score.

“Over 30 Years Of Bringing New England Home”

But with home values on the rise, you might be in a position to refinance into a new loan and ditch the mortgage insurance. (You could ask your current lender to cancel PMI if you believe you've reached 20% equity, but there's no guarantee they will.)

Call Today and Ask About All of our Great Mortgage Programs

Even if your payment doesn’t change much, refinancing to get rid of PMI is a smart move. Getting rid of PMI means paying more money toward principal and may be a particularly good move for buyers with FHA loans. Borrowers who took out FHA loans before June 3, 2013, have to carry this insurance for at least five years on all loans longer than 15 years or until the mortgage balance is down to 78% of the original purchase price, whichever is longer. When it comes to your mortgage you must look at it as your largest investment in your life. Like all investments, bank accounts and other assets and liabilities it is prudent to review them annually. Call me today to review your loan, you have nothing to loose and possibly a great deal to gain.

Post-Winter Checkup For Your Home

Winter 2015 is almost over…and hopefully you and your home made it through this year of recordbreaking snowfall in one piece. As the temperatures rise and the snow melts, here are some things to look for when assessing any damage to your home. Roof: Many of us experienced ice dams this winter, a condition that occurs when snow melting on a roof forms a ridge of ice at the edge. With the ice in the way, any new water that melts isn’t able to drain properly and in some cases the water leaks in through the roof, ceiling and walls. Homes with newer roofs that have been built to code should be able to handle a snowy New England winter. If you experienced leaks this winter due to ice damming, you’ll need to look into having your roof replaced or repaired to prevent this issue from recurring next year. If you have a newer roof and still experienced leaks from ice damming, it’s possible your roof wasn’t installed to code. Check with the company that installed your roof to see if they warranty their work. If you believe a new roof is in order, homeowners insurance will typically cover for you to have your roof stripped and reinstalled to current codes. Water Damage: With the prolonged freezing temperatures we had this winter, burst pipes were a common occurrence. Those same frigid temperatures will keep the mold at bay for now, but once the weather warms up any untreated damp areas will become an issue that needs to be addressed. If you experienced water damage from ice damming or a burst pipe, it’s imperative that you

call a professional water damage company. Even if water damage doesn’t look that bad, there may be rust building on copper wires behind the wall, or mold growing on insulation that you can’t see. Serious health issues can occur when water damage is left untreated. Again, your insurance company typically covers this necessary service. Gutters: It’s a good idea to clean your gutters after the snow melts and replace any pieces that were damaged during winter storms. Windows and doors: A cold winter is a great time to understand how well your windows and doors are working. If doors or windows leak water from the top, or windows leak from the bottom corner, you have an issue that needs to be addressed. 99% of the time such a leak is caused by incorrect sealing done on the day of installation—basically your window or door was installed improperly. New construction windows (installed on homes built in the early 90’s and later) are more likely to experience this issue because of how the vinyl siding and windows fit together. If you had any leaks this winter you also likely have water damage and should speak to your insurance company to get that treated. If you need to replace your windows or doors, we encourage you to choose wisely. Building codes change regularly; by choosing a company that specializes in installing windows and doors, you ensure the best chance that you won’t have issues in future winters. United Better Homes Windows & Doors includes a lifetime labor and service warranty on all of our installations. March 2015 |

Metro South Living Attleboros, Mansfield, Easton, Foxboro, Plainville By NEHL Staff

The western most communities of Bristol County, MA and southern communities in Norfolk County offer some the best value in the state for homeowners. These small cities and abutting rural towns have a quality of life and great proximity that make them popular choices for families who work both in Providence and the Boston as well. The most western Bristol County city of Attleboro and North Attleboro are centers of culture and shopping with full rail access to Boston and points south. Once a prominent jewelry manufacturing town, North Attleboro is now a thriving commercial and diverse industrial center that features some truly great neighborhoods.

With proximity to Routes 95 and 495, 20 minutes to Providence and about 40 to Boston the region is high on homebuyers list of places to live. With a lower tax rate than surrounding communities and a highly regarded public school systems this area is popular with families. With 124 homes and buildings on the National Register of Historic Places, this town of 29,000-plus people has more going for it than the more expensive suburban Boston and Providence towns. White Cliffs, Plymouth North Attleboro is indeed an appealing small town that has somehow flown under the radar when looking for a new home. That won't last long, however, as other towns have priced themselves out of contention. If considering a move to the Boston/ Providence area, we highly recommend you take a close look at Attleboro and North Attleboro. The shopping and services along Route 1 is unmatched by almost anywhere in New England. Mansfield and Easton, which are two great towns in the region are also great choices as each has many of the same proximity advantages as the Attleboro’s with great small town feel and charm.
