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

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

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 14 | February 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.

How Do Construction Loans Work? by Peter DeFusco

Technically, a construction loan is a monetary loan that finances all or part of the construction of any real estate building project. They are normally short-term loans, lasting from one year to threeyears. Typically, they are taken out before the long-term financing is put into place. Those in the know call construction loans by the quaint name, “story loans.” The lender makes you tell the complete story lurking behind your request, along with your plans for renovation or construction. Story loans differ from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac home loans, in that they need not be standardized. What Type of Loan? Choosing from Column A or Column B Everybody’s situation is different, so you’ll want to check with your financial planner to figure out the best option for your individual case. You will need to choose between two types of construction loans: “constructiononly” and “construction-to-permanent mortgage.” Here’s the difference: “Construction-only” loans simply pay for the construction costs of your building project. Choose thistype, and you’ll make payments on the loan’s interest until either the contract is up, or the project is finished. At that time, your principle comes due. This type of loan the “two-loan approach” because it allows you to choose two separate lenders. Others call

it a “new construction loan” or an “end loan.” “Construction-to-permanent mortgage” loans usually roll over the payments on the construction costs into a permanent mortgage. Lenders like these better because of their profitability. These are also referred to as “One-step” or “construction/permanent” loans. How to Qualify: Don't Give Up, Put Up! We also discovered that it can bedifficult to secure both a good lender and a good construction loan. Many lending institutions completely suspended programs for construction loans during the latest economic chaos. They really want to be sure you have what it takes, financially. Guidelines have also tightened. For example, to qualify, you’ll usually need: • A credit score of above 680 for a loan below $417K, and above 700 if you’re borrowing more. • A W2 from your employer or, if you’re selfemployed, income verified by two years of tax statements • No more than a 45% Debt-to-Income rating. • You should set aside at least a 20% land equity or down payment to cover the construction loan. For a credit score of 720 or above 10% is possible.

Basic Steps Once you’ve pre-qualified for the type of construction loan you chose. Be sure to compare their experience and the loan-tocost rate. Fill out and submit the application. Sign a construction loan contractwith the contractor or builder, and buy construction insurance, including liability, workman’s compensation, and “course of construction” insurance. Making It Work Realize that construction and mortgage loans rates fluctuate, sometimes over very short periods. Set up your loan as early as you can. You can easily lose your building deposit if you miss the closing date deadline. Find out about “float-downs” and “extended locks” before you sign on the dotted line. This will protect you from the consequences of extreme changes in interest rates. Ask your lender about “lien waivers,” and how the builder’s sub-contractors’ payments and waivers are to be handled. Due to the comparatively risky nature of construction loans for builders, a few unscrupulous lenders may try to pump up the final bill with add-ons and markups. Just remember that in general, if it’s not in the contract, you’ll pay extra for it. Try to include a contingency penalty for late completion, paid by the builder. Everybody knows that constructionusually takes longer than you think, but few believe they’re the ones this will happen to. Those who neglect to plant their feet on their property during each major construction phase may as well hand the builder a Get Out of Work Free card. Watchful involvement is the only way to get what you’re paying for. Always remember to act only on quotes you have in writing. Mortgage lending is sometimes an ephemeral thing, with terms that magically transform themselves overnight, so lock it up nice and tight before you get out the champagne and shovel.

Hot Home Upgrades By Greg Sampson

Homeowners today are looking for ways to improve the efficiency of their living spaces for both economic and environmental reasons. Two hot home upgrades include Geothermal Heating and Cooling as well as Home Automation. Upgrade your home to be greener and safer while putting your hard earned income back into your household budget this year. GEOTHERMAL HEATING & COOLING Imagine saving 25-50% on your utility bills and receiving a nice 30% tax credit of the cost of the system for keeping your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter? You can make your dream into reality by using a small amount of electricity to transfer heat to and from the ground to your home. Installing a geothermal system is the equivalent of taking two cars off the road or planting 750 trees making it the most environmentally safe system available today. In fact the system can be easily connected to your hot water tank so that the heat

70 | February 2015

removed from your home during the cooling cycle can be deposited directly into your hot water heater providing you virtually free hot water. Although this more common in new construction it something to consider if your heating and cooling system is ready for an upgrade. HOME AUTOMATION Would knowing that your home is secure, you didn’t leave a light on or that your heat isn’t on for no reason be important to you? With home automation you can monitor all of these and more from your mobile phone, tablet or computer from anywhere in the world. One of our favorites is ADT Pulse, which allows you to arm and disarm your security system along with lock and unlock doors. You can also monitor your thermostat and lighting plus view a live video feed. All of these features are accomplished through their Z-Wave technology, which wirelessly allows your homes electronics to communicate.

ADT is the most respected name in the security business. We've been protecting America's homes and families for over a century. ADT offers total home security and home automation solutions: • 24 Hour Alarm Monitoring • Homeowner Savings • ADT Guarantees and Discounts

Organize Your Life:

Custom Closet Geeks has the Solution and it works! Organization is the art of having things in the right places in life so we may have easy access to them. A simple premise but in reality the lack of organization accounts for most of the wasted time in our lives. While it’s true that our phones and computers have organized our contacts, schedules, workflow and communications our living and working spaces have lagged well behind the trend. I am perplexed why every home that

has been built in the last 100 years makes little or no provisions for organization and function to accommodate all the things that we acquire in a life. So lets see, I am going to pay $350,000 for this great house, but there is no where to put anything I own where I can see it and have easy access to it. With all the other pressures of time in life you would think that seeing and finding things with ease would be a first priority for all of us each and every day.

Custom Closet Geeks has the Solution and it works!

Organization is the art of having things in the right place in life so we may have easy access to them. A simple premise but in reality, the lack of organization accounts for most of the wasted time in our lives. While it is true that our phones and computers have organized our contacts, schedules, workflow and communications our living and working spaces have lagged well behind the trend. So I can fit 2000 documents into my PDA and find any one of them in a minute and forward it to whomever, but I still have trouble finding the right cloths to wear every day or that can of mushrooms for my soufflé that I bought 2 days ago. I am perplexed why every home that has been built in the last 200 years makes little or no provisions for organization and function to accommodate all the things that we acquire in a life time. So let’s see, I am going to pay $350,000 for this great house but there is no place to put anything I own where I can see it and p have easyy access to it. With all the other pressures

we have on our time, you would think that seeing and finding things with ease would be a first priority for all of us each and every day. Dressing well is not about what you have but more about how well you see it before you put it on. If time is the most expensive thing we spend in life then we are spending a fortune on disorganization.

Custom Crafted Right Here In New England

We craft all closets in our state of the art woodwork shop. We take great pride in each closet system we

make. Many other closet company’s hire outside cabinet companies to manufacture their design. This can be a problem because the company that designed your closet isn't the same company that made it. By making all of our own parts we can be very responsive and flexible to our customers' needs. If you need a custom cornershelving unit that has to be fit around a window, we can make it. If you need a custom crown molding, we can make it. If you need a custom raised front door or draw front door, we can make it. Our designers talk with the men in the shop as your closets are custom cut for you to assure accuracy. Having our own shop right here in Massachusetts is especially helpful during the installation. If a part isn't right, we can correct it the same day—not wait for a factory in North Carolina to ship it. So whether you need your basement, your bedroom or any other space in your home organized, call us today—we'll create the perfect custom closet for you.
