Sometime selling real estate or more specifically, homes in Plymouth, is a pleasure.  And not so infrequently, the sales occur in your neighborhood!!  This is such a time.  My neighborhood is an upscale area complete with ponds (swimming & fishing), hiking trails and conservation land set in South Plymouth off Exit 2 in Cedarville, MA.  There are some 10 or more ponds in a 1 mile radius.  It is 1.5 miles to Cape Cod, 2 miles to the ocean, and has 5 excellent golf courses within a 5 minute drive.  One of the homes has pond frontage and a movable dock with an electric motor to take you out into private, Triangle pond. Currently there are four (4) homes for sale and suitable for most any buyer.  Check out the listing details on our website "Featured Properties" on our Home Page at:  www.Ri...

  Our driveway after 10" of wet snow last night.  The blizzard was intense and projections of 14" resulted in this peaceful and serene Sunday morning.  Note that even the yellow driveway stakes or markers were covered with snow. Hope the plow will arrive soon as I have afternoon appointments! How did the rest of you MA members make out?    www.RiverFarmProperties.com

In Plymouth, Massachusetts, the number of sales has been rising, the average price is up almost 7% in the second half of 2013 compared to the second half of 2012, the price paid per square foot is up over 9% in the same period, and the number of days homes take to sell has been falling. The median home shows similar improvement over the same period. Together with fewer homes coming to market, this indicates a market that is beginning to favor sellers. Still, buyers have several good options in every price range. With a pre-approval in hand, prepared buyers should be able to buy the home they want when it comes on the market. 656 single-family homes sold in Plymouth in 2013 up from 586 in 2012 if you'd like a list of all the 2013 sales, please write me here All the homes available in Pl...

In Plymouth, Massachusetts, sales were steady in December 2013 compared to December 2012, but the prices were lower than average, when compared to November, last December and the second half of 2012. December is often a tough month from which to draw conclusions, since year-end and seasonal patterns tend to obscure longer-term trends and create other anomalies. Nevertheless, there was a drawdown in the number of homes available at the same time that the number of days on market fell. Together with the other data, this indicates a market that is beginning to favor sellers, even though that advantage has not shown up in higher prices. It seems, however, to be benefiting sellers who properly price their homes, and can therefore sell them quite rapidly. Still, buyers have several options i...

Dateline: Saturday night, Plymouth MA Subject: Johnny Hoy and the Bluefish These guys have been rocking the South Shore and the Cape and Islands for years!  I had no idea they were playing nearby last night until I walked past a sandwich board on the street in Plymouth announcing that they were playing in the back right then.   I had to go in.  Had to.  So many good summer memories from those wistful days of youth. Brought it all back.  And it still feels good! The dancing crowd was filled with kids from 20 to 70. He's such a great entertainer. So soulful and passionate. Such a good band leader. The perfect bar band. Good at weddings, too, as I recall fondly!

  The sales of Plymouth MA homes and real estate may just be poised to take a turn for the better.  This is a brief follow up to my last blog in November 2013 on our local nuclear power plant in Plymouth.  Federal regulators have placed Pilgrim Nuclear power plant on a list with 15 other underperforming nuclear reactors in the country. The decision from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) stems from a rapid shutdown — called an unplanned scram — of Pilgrim last August when pumps feeding water from Cape Cod Bay to the nuclear reactor failed because of electrical problems with NStar. The decision will result in mandatory new inspections of the nuclear plant by the NRC in the coming months. In more recent news, the plant was taken offline just this past November due to yet another elec...

In Plymouth, Massachusetts, sales are steady compared to last November, but prices and the number of sales have risen slightly year-over-year. While November's data shows higher-than-average monthly increases, but when we look over a few more months of data, prices would seem to be up about 5% or so, year-over-year, and the number of sales is up by about the same percentage. Quite a few homes are selling for more than $200 per square foot. There are few bidding wars, and no full price sales, but homes are selling steadily and fairly quickly overall. The number of homes for sale dropped 10% last month, to 301 from 335, and about one quarter of the completed sales are for houses that have been on the market for 35 or fewer days. The number of homes with sales pending has increased dramat...

Seemed like just a few short months ago (April), The Mirbeau Inn & Spa  hosted their official ground breaking ceremony. Seven months into the construction project and you can see the hotel taking shape. The hotel will include 50 rooms, a fine dining restaurant, wine bar and bistro, plus a seasonal outdoor lighter fare restaurant, a luxurious spa, fitness facility with accommodations for weddings, corporate events or other social gatherings.  What a welcome addition this French style chateau will be to The Pinehills community. If you have never visited The Green Company models at The Pinehills, there is no time like the present. Come tour our Fresco and Portico style condominium townhomes here at Greengate. We are conveniently located near The Village Green off Landmark Drive and our mod...
