Waterfront home for sale in Ipswich, MA

"Bow Bank" holds a delightful C1850 Colonial cottage, on nearly 3 acres, at the bank of the Rowley River sited on a gentle upland knoll, surrounded by the Great Marsh. For people that are SERIOUS about getting away from it all.....this incredibly rare opportunity to step "back in time" does not often present itself. You are completely "off the grid" solar lights, gas fridge/cooking, cistern for water and a composting "loo". Yet, you are roughly 1/2 mile from a small, local marina/launch service and less than a mile to the train station with service to Boston. No current dock, but easily accessed at higher tides. Possibility to build a dock/add a float and simple "out haul" with proper permits. Wraparound porch/with large screened room.The river flows into Plum Island Sound/Ipswich Bay to the Atlantic. Slip your kayak/canoe off the bank and paddle your cares away. Bird life is phenomenal. The views are incredible, the privacy...sublime. The serenity, priceless.

Rockport MA Adopts Community Impact Fee

Rockport Adopts Community Impact Fee
At the annual town meeting last Saturday, Rockport voted to adopt two articles that will impose a 3% Community Impact Fee on short term rentals. NSAR mobilized its Rapid Response Team, which opposed both articles. Outreach was conducted to REALTORS ® who are Rockport residents to inform them of the issue and the reasons for opposition.
 
A Community Impact Fee is a tax applied to short term rentals (less than 31 days). 3% is the maximum percentage that can be implemented. Within Rockport the tax will apply to rentals that are either:

  • “Professionally managed” (defined as 2 or more units in non-primary residences)
  • Located within a two-family or three family primary residence

When a Community Impact Fee is adopted, at least thirty-five percent of the collected money must be dedicated to either affordable housing or local infrastructure projects. Rockport joined Gloucester and Swampscott as North Shore communities that have adopted the tax.

Peabody, MA Real Estate - Peabody, MA Homes for Sale

Home Prices Should Remain Stable

Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist for the National Association of REALTORS® and respected real estate trend commentator to 1.4 million REALTORS® realizes the inevitable economic damage of Covid-19, reports that home prices should remain stable and that our resiliency will pull us through. On the ground, here on the north shore of Boston, we concur. #Resilience has been our mantra throughout the pandemic. The market is seeing pent up demand and low inventory resulting in multiple offers and bidding wars on properties that are priced in the 'sweet spot' with guidance from experienced REALTORS®.

Not our Normal Spring Real Estate Market - A New Way in Real Estate

Answers. It's what we all want. But nobody has them, and anyone claiming they do, well, I recommend a fact check. None of us here at Windhil have that elusive crystal ball and no, we can't make you any promises about the future. But what I can tell you is that here in the northeast, north of Boston, on the northshore in particular, what we are seeing right now is serious pent-up demand for inventory and every listing we take has a long line of ready, willing and able buyers. These homes, if priced properly, are going under contract with multiple offers, sometimes over asking and because our network of professionals including lenders, inspectors, attorneys, etc. are now well-versed in the new way of doing business, the closings are happening efficiently and on time. The closings might be curbside but the smiles are still there.

Predictions point to a delay in inventory that will inevitably explode so if you're thinking of selling but the path is unclear, ask for help, get some sound advice, educate yourself about the new process. Lack of inventory is to your advantage, while it lasts. 

The Massachusetts Real Estate Market is Down But Not Out! Great article thank you to WGBH.

Never Mind the Baby Boom, Are We Ready for Pet Boom?

Pet ownership is on the rise amid the corona virus

 

I, myself, sent an email to my local shelter, asking if they were considering foster parents for pets during the pandemic, in the hopes that we would fall in love with our new companion. Boston Agent Magazine also noticed the reality of our need for comfort and how it plays out during a pandemic with this article that doesn't surprise me at all... Pet Ownership is Growing Amid the Corona Virus Lockdown
