When I work with buyers I find that once they start looking at properties they start to prioritize their needs and wants in a home and location. Everyone is different in what they are willing to accept or trade off when deciding what vacation home is best for them. For example: some folks are sure they want an ocean view (who wouldn't?) but then when they assess what they can afford with a view, they may decide they would prefer more space and a home in better condition and do without the view. Others may decide to buy the home with the view and update it or add on to it as they can afford to. If you are in a position to buy a home with a view that is in great condition and has the space you need, then by all means buy the one with the view, you won't be ocean view is a beautiful and rare delight every day you wake up with it. However it is all a very personal choice and a good buyer's agent will give you the time and options to figure it out. Good luck with your search and please feel free to contact me for additional assistance or with further questions. ... more

Looking for a rental this late in the season could be problematic.......But not impossible!

Over the years we've stayed in many of the upper, lower, and mid Cape locations. Our advice is to not lose too much sleep making this decision because from most locations you should be less than 40 minutes(depending on traffic) from anything you could want to do.

Because of this, we have always been drawn to the mid Cape areas of Chatham, Harwich, Orleans, Brewster etc. These locations offer so many activities and allow the quickest access to all Cape destinations.

We'll be there in August this year....can't wait!
