Provincetown Real Estate

Photo Shoot and Drone Video in North Truro

It was a crisp early winter morning when we met up with our photographer at our new listing in North Truro.  She surprised us with her new toy: a drone for photos and videos.  This listing will be coming on to MLS in a few months but it's still available for showings.  Check out the video of the outside of the house and its surroundings here: https://vimeo.com/200724305

Property Of The Week: Fantastic New Listing in Provincetown

Nestled at the foot of Telegraph Hill, in the heart of the West End, is this hidden gem of a cottage. Everything about this beautiful building is carefully planned and thought-out. Wonderfully crafted built-ins make for a perfect use of space and are ship-like in their detail. There are two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. A recent addition greatly expanded the living/dining area, as well as providing a full basement underneath, which houses the mechanicals. The second floor deck gives you a wonderful view of the bay and Long Point lighthouse, and just across the street is a boat launch and bay beach.  See the full listing here.

Spring Has Sprung Finally on the Outer Cape

One of the sure signs of spring on the Outer Cape is town meeting. The three Outer Cape towns, Truro, Provincetown and Wellfleet (each of which has one of the harbors from which make up the 3 Harbors name) retain the traditional New England form of town meeting, where residents vote directly on articles covering town budgets, zoning regulations and planning policies. Provincetown usually goes first and town meetings there tend to be spirited multi-evening affairs where passions can run high. Truro and Wellfleet meetings, which can also be enlived by spirited debate, usually only last one night. 

The Truro meeting this year featured an article to replace the existing by-law, which restricts occupancy of most condominiums to nine months of the year, with a by-law allowing condo associations to apply for year-round occupancy permits. Proponents of the change argued that allowing year-round occupancy would increase housing options for those looking to buy and live in something more affordable than a single family house.  Opponents worried about potentially greater demand for Town services and more intense use of our fragile water system. The proposed by-law was defeated so, as before, most Truro condos have to be closed for the winter. 

Another sure sign of Spring is that the boards have come off the windows of cottages, houses and business all over town. Provincetown, especially, is full of the sound of nail guns and construction crews completing Springtime renovations and repairs after the ravages of winter. Additionally, phones are ringing in real estate offices all over the Outer Cape as the better weather is bringing out a rush of buyers who want to see properties that just a few weeks ago were still covered in snow!

Happy Holidays from 3Harbors!

What a good year 2014 turned out to be for 3Harbors-- a bighearted thanks to all our clients and friends for making it all possible.  3Harbors ends 2014 as the # 1 selling office in Truro, a ranking we maintained from the previous year.  Co-founder Nick Norman was the #1 listing agent in Truro, while Gregg Russo, who is based in our Provincetown office, is the #5 listing agent in both Truro and Provincetown.  And speaking of Provincetown, our new office there has been open barely a year and is already the #6 office for sales in Provincetown.  Looking ahead to 2015, we anticipate another great year as we are starting the New Year with more listings than ever!  We hope you'll decide to work with us if you are thinking of real estate on the Outer Cape as, in addition to all the good success this year, 3Harbors brings to the table unmatched experience, vast local knowledge and deep community roots.

As year-end approaches, 3Harbors bids the fondest farewell to our other co-founder, Anne Daignault.  Anne has decided to retire after several long and successful careers which have ranged from teaching to personnel to corporate placement to, of course, real estate.  We will miss Anne's warmth, intelligence and humor around the office but know that her friendship and know-how are never more than a phone call away.  Please join us in wishing Anne a wonderful next chapter!

Speaking of next chapters, John Guerra, who joined 3Harbors last year, becomes a full-fledged member of our team in the New Year.  As a former diplomat and small business owner, John brings great people and entrepreneurial skills with him to his own latest career in real estate.  Rounding out our 3 Harbors' talent, Jim Chudomel remains expertly at the helm of our presence in Wellfleet, while Rebecca Townsend and Alan Wagg bring unparalleld dedication and knowledge to the rental side of the business.

Thanks for your interest in 3Harbors.  We look forward very much to working hard in bringing your real estate dreams to fruition here on the Outer Cape in 2015 and beyond.  A very merry holiday season and a wonderful New Year to you from all of us at 3Harbors!

Cute As A Button!

Okay, okay we know this term is over-used and we ourselves have probably used it too many times.  But in this case, "cute as a button" is just spot on.  This small studio is in the center of Provincetown but set well away from the hustle and bustle within a small waterfront condo community, surrounded by gardens and the sea.  Lovingly restored and beautifully maintained, the studio has a place for everything.  There's a great rental history and a deeded parking space.

Provincetown Real Estate Market Re-Cap for 2011

Real estate sales in Provincetown were strong in 2011.  Lured by low interest rates and lower prices, the town saw continued strength in the condo sector and an uptick in single family sales.  Here at 3Harbors, we've seen a significant increase in activity and there are indications that prices are starting to rise. Illustrating this trend, we put a small free standing one bedroom cottage on the market for $439,000 recently and we had it under agreement within 24 hours.

Wall Street Journal Says "Now's The Time To Buy That Vacation Home."

As the Wall Street Journal writes about second homes, "If you have the money and you plan on staying put for the long term, now may be a good time to buy." Although the article doesn't mention homes for sale in Truro, Wellfleet or Provincetown specifically, it stresses that "blue chip" locales have stabilized and there are some very good deals to be had. 3Harbors has already seen a steady ramp up in the Provincetown real estate market and activity in the Truro real estate market has been picking up while Wellfleet real estate has continued to be quite steady.
