The Seasons are Changing
There was a slight chill in the air as I began my commute to my Falmouth office where I List and Sell Real Estate. (www.peterhawley.com). As I follow the winding roads spotting a deer bounding across an open field, the sweet smell of freshly cut hay floated into my open car window. Further along right in the middle of the road, my first yellow school bus of the year, which reminded me that I have to adjust my travel time, so I will not wear out my brakes. I turned to follow the beach road and on this beautiful August day, not a cloud in the sky, the water a brilliant blue, seemingly floating on the horizon was the ferry from Woods Hole steaming towards Martha's Vineyard, I am sure full of those who are getting an early start on the Labor Day weekend.
It is not only the changing of the seasons that I feel, it is the changing of business, this past few months, and hopefully continuing through the remainder of the year. Sales are up, very much ahead of the past 2 years at this time. The other Agents in my office have full schedules, showing property and this marked increase of activity is most welcomed. Prices have moderated which have made housing purchases more attractive and more affordable for many. This is the time for renters and first time home buyers to be out seeing what is available and with the addition of the $7,500 tax credit for first time home buyers which was included in the recently signed, Housing and Economic Recovery Act, HR 3221 many people may soon realize their dream of home ownership.
