East Bay Living Part II By NEGM Staff

T

he East Bay region of Rhode Island, located on the eastern side of Narragansett Bay, is steeped in British and Colonial heritage. Living in the East Bay offers residence a great quality of life with more amenities than just about anywhere in the state. The 14-mile East Bay Bike Path runs through all four communities and offers an unparalleled view of Narragansett Bay and hugs the shores line from Bristol in the south and north to India Point Park in Providence.

Bristol RI Historic Home C21 Rondeau Assoc. 401-254-1900

The trail takes you through an alternating landscape of stunning natural areas, as well as more urban enclaves. Spur trails lead to several parks and conservation areas, including Colt State Park in Bristol, Burr's Hill Park in Warren and Veterans Memorial Park and Haines Memorial State Park in Barrington.

The laid-back charm of the East Bay is apparent from its antiques shops, historic inns, secluded marinas, main streets and village squares that are as authentic as the patriotic spirit that surrounds America 's oldest Fourth of July parade, held in the Town of Bristol since 1785. The region is rich in historic sites and museums and parks and offers many choices in homes in almost every price point. December 2013 | NEHomeLife.com

Life by the bay is truly special to those who have roots in the region, there is no place like the East Bay. Moving to this region is very much like moving to an island of history, culture and charm. There is so much to discover and so much to do and it's all by the bay where coastal living is at its best. The region has both historic home choices and many well planned new home neighborhoods and developments. Whether you choose town residences in the region or the outskirts you will always be just a short distance to all the attractions the East Bay has to offer.

Tiverton RI

Along the east passage of the Sakonnet River disconnected from state borders, the towns of Tiverton and Little Compton are havens for beauty and serenity and offer a very special way of life for both year- round and seasonal residents. These seaside communities are home to farms, wineries, spectacular seaside homes and waterfront seasonal cottages along the shore. Traveling south from central Tiverton’s beautiful waterfront through Nanaquaket and the historic 4 Corners region of town gives you a taste of life along the bay. It is a great place to live and offers public access to the water with marinas for boaters and close proximity to some of New England’s finest beaches.


best. This small community is home to magnificent oceanfront homes and is dotted with historic farmland and vineyards looking out over the Sakonnet Passage of Narragansett Bay. As it was 100 years ago, it still is today and most folks here love it that way. If you are fortunate enough to spend a summer day on the exclusive links at Sakonnet Golf Club, Donald Ross who summered here and designed, the facility will treat you to one of golf’s true masterpieces.

2014 Forecast: The Emerging Purchase Market By Marc Walz "With the close of 2013 will also come a major transition in the housing finance industry. For the first time since 2000, we're going to see the mortgage market dominated by purchase activity as the refinance share drops below 50 percent. And with mortgage rates rising, we're also going to see the home-sales gains as well as the impressive house price growth begin to moderate to more sustainable levels,” said Frank Nothaft, Freddie Mac vice president and chief economist. Hearing that interest rates are on the rise can be daunting news, but don’t let that make you give up on your homeownership dreams! Despite the rate increases, they are still at historical lows and affordable homes can be found on the market. Whether you’re thinking of making the move from your starter house to a home your family can grow in, or looking to downsize to a more manageable property, the first step is the same: find out how much house you can afford!

Know Your Buying Power: Get Pre-qualified! Getting pre-qualified for a mortgage allows you to know exactly how much you can afford and confidently offer. You will have the chance to discuss the financial options available with your loan officer and be able to shop for a home with confidence. As a pre-qualified borrower you will be considered a more serious homebuyer, as opposed to one who is “just looking”. You may also have greater negotiating power as you begin the shopping and bidding process.

Find a lender who…

• Has a good reputation. Referrals from people you trust are often the best way to protect yourself from predatory lenders. Conversely, when you find a trustworthy lender, protect your friends and family by referring them to the lender as well. • You are comfortable working with. Personality is especially important when you run into those unforeseen problems! • Is professional and knowledgeable about your options. Is educated, Bonded and licensed. • Is patient and understanding, and takes the time to listen to your needs and concerns, and takes the time to explain everything to you clearly. • Provides guidance and reassurance when necessary. • Is Transparent, Answers all of your questions in a direct and straightforward manner. • Is accessible and has a team you can also rely on. • Gives you the personal attention and respect you deserve. RMS is a direct mortgage lender. Our singular focus is working directly with local homeowners to provide funding for their residential home purchases and refinances. We have no interest in other banking or depositary relationships. We are Mortgage experts.

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” -John Fitzgerald Kennedy

2013: A Year to be Thankful For!

As we close out another year, I wanted to take a moment to extend my sincere thanks to the community for providing me and my team at RMS the opportunity to work with such wonderful people. I’m truly grateful. It has been both a privilege and a pleasure to help so many new homebuyers become homeowners, to watch my real estate partners succeed with their business goals and to continue seeing this community grow. I look

forward to 2014 with much excitement. Best wishes for a safe, happy, healthy holiday season to you and your families and my sincere thanks for your loyalty and goodwill throughout the year! “Please remember your referrals are always much more than just business to me, they are a way of life and the highest compliment I ever receive!!”

55 and older Communities

The 55 and Older Housing Boom by NEGM Staff

Homebuyers and renters older than age 55 represent a fast-growing segment of the housing market, particularly those buying single-family homes and condos. According to the National Association of Home Builders the 55+ Housing Market Index is the fastest growing sector in the U.S. In New England 55 and older communities are growing rapidly in almost every price point. Builders and developers are reacting to these trends and throughout the region with many more choices and styles than ever before.

The Pine Hills - Plymouth,MA

Moving North Not long ago, active adults were expected to head south the moment they reached retirement. Today it’s common to find half-back or full-back retirees who tried the Southern lifestyle and decided to head back north. A growing number of retirees are skipping the relocation entirely and opting to age in place, which is why more active adult communities are cropping up in Northern climates.

More Focus on Maintenance-Free Living Many of today’s active adults don’t want to spend their retirement years mowing the lawn or painting the shutters. Communities that offer low-maintenance, or maintenance-free homes are likely to 22 22

NEHomeLife.com | December 2013 NEHomeLife.com | July 2012

be more popular than ever. That usually raises the price of HOA fees, but it frees up time for homebuyers to enjoy their retirement years.

Boomers are Consumer Kings Today’s seniors are younger than ever and are driving a new initiative in 55 and older housing. Baby Boomers now reaching retirement represent the most healthy and active retirement demographic in history. They represent nearly 30% of the U.S. population and control 70% of all the wealth in the country. They vacation more, spend more and contribute more to the nations economy than all other sectors combined. And they are driving the housing market to deliver more choices and better planned communities with more amenities.


55+ Meets Social Media

Living Green

Today’s 55 and older crowd are tech savvy and on a mission to make life simpler and more manageable. The 55+ demographic have discovered Facebook and is quickly adapting to the world of social networking. Expect more Baby Boomers and retirees to begin using social networking sites to stay in touch with friends and family, meet new people and keep current on both world events and pop culture. Facebook’s largest growth sector in 2013 was 55 and older women. What has been missing in social media has been the connection to the more affluent demographic.

Green living is popular with active adults, especially when energy efficient systems and appliances lower the monthly utility bills. Popular home features include solar panels, extra insulation, water saving features and energy-efficient heating and cooling systems.

Horton Estates - Rehoboth, MA

Smaller, More Urban Communities Savvy homebuyers are turning toward smaller, budget-friendly homes. These thoughtfully designed residences are easier to maintain and cheaper to furnish. A lower home price also lets retirees stretch their savings or spend their money on other pursuits like travel or hobbies.

Mattapoisett Landing - Mattapoisett, MA

Bigger/Better Fitness Centers Staying fit and healthy is an important goal for active adults, and that means having access to a fully-equipped fitness center. Active adult communities are building spacious fitness facilities where residents

Oakridge - Westport, MA

can expect more choices for staying in shape, like state-of-the-art equipment, indoor walking tracks and swimming pools, and a wide range of exercise classes.

Technology Focused Searches Before the days of easy Internet access, retirees were largely limited to brochures, word of mouth and Weekend Getaways to learn about out-of-state communities. Today, they can thoroughly research a community from the comfort of their own home. Beginning in 2014 at nehomelife. com retirees can view photos, floor plans and reviews for nearly 500 communities in 19 states. This advanced technology will make it easier for retirees to make an informed decision and choose an ideal community for their own personal needs. New England Homelife will continue to provide monthly complete coverage of new and existing 55 and older communities throughout the region for your review in print and online at http://nehomelife.com.

T

he western most communities of Bristol County, MA offer 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 who work both in Providence and the Boston metro area as well. With their prime location and small town charm is no surprise that they are seeing steady growth and high demand with buyers.

day is simple, they are well managed rural communities that have followed a common sense plan on growth and development. Each has protected open space and continually assessed and planned for the future for their community. Rehoboth is almost 50 square miles of land area and Swansea and Dighton are about 25 square miles. Density is a very important statistic when it comes to small towns, it represents

Over-55 housing boom by Peter DeFusco

Homebuyers and renters older than age 55 represent a fast-growing segment of the housing market, particularly those buying single-family homes and condos. According to the National Association of Home Builders 55+ Housing Market Index, builder confidence has improved significantly in the third quarter of this year compared to third-quarter 2012. Both the multifamily condo and single-family home index registered the highest third-quarter increase since the index began in 2008. Confidence also increased in the index for multifamily rentals. Builders continue to feel optimistic about the 55+ housing market, a National Association of Home Builders survey shows. As reported by Senior Housing News, NAHB's 55+ Housing Market Index increased 14 points to 50 in the third quarter, which is the highest it's been since the index was started five years ago. Third-quarter results were the eighth consecutive quarter of yearover-year improvements. The market consists of single-family homes, condos, and multifamily rentals. The index, a measure of builder sentiments about the market, is based on a survey of current sales, prospective buyer traffic, and expected sales for the next six months.

All three areas showed gains. The biggest jump was in current sales, which climbed 16 points. "We have seen steady improvement in the 55+ housing sector as buyers and renters are attracted to new homes and communities that offer the lifestyle they desire," Robert Karen, chairman of NAHB's 50+ Housing Council and managing member of the Symphony Development Group, was quoted as saying. "Although the market is significantly stronger than it has been in recent years, we still have ways to go to get back to full production." NAHB chief economist David Crowe says the 55+ market is improving because homeowners are more likely to be able to sell their homes and buy new ones or move into apartments that suit their needs.

Active Adult Communities: These communities may consist of many different types of housing, such as single-family homes, cluster homes, multifamily housing such as condominiums, or manufactured homes. Although homes are usually privately owned, outdoor maintenance is generally provided, for a monthly homeowners’ association or condo fee.The distinguishing characteristic of an active adult community is that it is designed for adults 55 years of age or older, and primarily excludes younger residents. Residents in these communities lead independent, active lifestyles, and the communities are not equipped to provide assistance with activities of 86 86

Smart Living Through Organization and Automation Welcome to the Possibilities

The newest trend in living today is maximizing space through organization and smart home design. Quite simply space has become expensive and organizing what you have just makes sense, the age of clutter is over. The National Association of Home Builders Survey shows that most homebuyers today are looking for smaller residences, in part because of the aging population and in part because of economic savings. A home, which has a smaller size, costs less to maintain and keep comfortable, and usually the taxes owed on the property are also less than a larger model would be. As more people take steps to cut costs and eliminate unnecessary expenses the switch to homes with less square footage has become extremely popular. In today’s marketplace smart homes that have closet systems, storage systems and entertainment and technology systems sell faster and bring higher prices to the seller.

A Place For Everything

With space at a premium companies like Custom Closet Geeks have seen a boom in their business in the last few decades. They provide not only complete closet systems but also full home organizational systems for every room in your home. From the kitchen to the garage they provide flexible solutions for storage for everything in your life. Their motto” a place for everything and everything in its place” has been their key to success in the marketplace.

plete installation and service have been a formula for success for the last 30 years. Wendy Dowling from Custom Closet Geeks said,” Taking the time to personally meet with our customers and assess their individual needs is the key to our business. Each home and each person require individual solutions that fit their life based on what they have and how best to utilize available space we are working with.

Introducing

The Shop 'N' Lock Program! Existing home sales have ticked up as of late with demand on the rise; however, interest rates have inched up at the same time as well!

Don’t let the rising rates scare your potential buyers away.

First Eastern Mortgage has created a unique program called Lock n Shop. This program allows your buyer to lock their rate while shopping for a home! Best of all if interest rates drop, the home buyer has an option to float down and re-lock their rate. For more information contact:
