While the MMR has done a tremendous amount of work to clean up this mess, there is certainly still a stigma that lingers over the concerns of the pollution in the areas affected. Your best source for information on where these problem areas are and what's been done to address the different plumes and different types of contamination is www.mmr.org If i can be of any help with your home buying in Sandwich or anywhere on the Cape feel free to contact me. I've been in Sandwich for 20 years and on the Cape for 40 plus. Best of luck.

I am confused, why would you want to put more than one offer on the same house? Do you mean you want to make multiple offers on multiple houses? If so, I guess you could but you need to be sure you have no obligation to go forward with the purchase of the other homes, either because you are still in the attorney review period or something. Also, be sure there are no financial penalties for canceling the other offers, assuming of course you are only going to purchase one house. It's risky, and I wouldn't necessarily recommend it, but I guess it can be done. And honestly, it's a bit unfair to the sellers, allowing them to think they have a legitimate buyer when, in fact, you fully intend to cancel all but one of those ofers. It might even rise to the level of violating the duty we all have to deal fairly with the other parties in a transaction.
On the other hand, if you are the seller having more than one offer on your home is a good thing! When that happens, typically the owner will either choose the best of the offers and accept that one, or ask all the potential buyers to come back with their 'highest and best' offer and choose one when these offers come in.... more
