Labor Day 2020.
Somehow we made it. A summer like no other and where did the time go?
Our kids and grandkids are returning to school either in person or virtually. Some of us are slowly returning to our workplaces. Others are remaining in homes offices as employers have discovered that working remotely is more cost effective. Healthcare workers, public safety officers, and grocery store employees never left the job as they kept vital services available.
For those who lost employment over the last few months, we can only hope that as the economy recovers new opportunities will emerge.
So, what’s next?
It defies logic, but the real estate market on Cape Cod is as busy as ever. Influenced at least in part by the virus crisis, buyers are looking to places like the Cape for more elbow room in case we ever find ourselves in another stay at home situation.
Those who have been thinking about a house on the Cape, but weren’t interested in the daily commute over the bridge are also seriously searching as the need to report to the office on a regular basis has been reduced or eliminated.
In addition, this area was never a Covid hot spot making families more comfortable with the idea of moving here.
We know this sounds crazy given all that we’ve been through, but for Cape homeowners, the opportunity to receive a substantial return on investment or buy that someday home in that someday neighborhood has never been better.
The median sales price for a single family home on Cape last month was $505,000.00. A year ago that figure was $426,000.00. With many of us having significant equity in our homes, now is truly the time to make that move.
Interested? Intrigued? Maybe a little confused?
We’d be happy to meet with you virtually or at safe distance to help you sort through your options. Helping our clients has been our full time job for 21 years. (As of this coming Wednesday; all with Today Real Estate. We’ll also be married 31 years on the same day!)
Let’s connect at 508-568-8191 or [email protected] We’re looking forward to meeting with you.
Stay healthy. Stay optimistic.
