Does anyone know Cape sellers in the $800,000 to $1,200,000 range interested in renting for a year?

My husband and I are planning to move to the Cape this summer, but like everyone else, we are having trouble selling our house and may have to rent for a while first.

D. Have you considered a blanket loan? I know of at least one lender that may be able to give you an opportunity to buy in this low market while still trying to sell your home in NY.

I have a gorgeous home listed FOR SALE but is presently used for a summer rental. There are 2 master suites, plus another bedroom, a family room, a third floor tower room/bedroom with deck overlooking Nantucket Sound, Handsome, stainless and granite eat-in kitchen, as well as a formal dining toom and wonderful Cape Cod living room. The heated, gunite pool and surrounding patios suggest pure luxury and relaxation. Plus, Sea Street beach is across the street from this lovely secluded neighborhood.
Call me about this possibility for you.

I have clients that have expressed an interest in renting for up to one year. Their home is located in the Hyannis Harbor area, and has water views. The home is quite spacious and was a recent build. Are you hoping to purchase the home that you rent or do you just need to buy some time?

We would suggest contacting a local Realtor on the cape. The Realtor can give you a list of rentals and also homes that are rent with an option to purchase. If you would like, we can refer you to an Prudential Realtor on the cape - it's a free service that we provide.
