What You Need to Know About Mortgage Rates for 2014

There's no time like the present. It's impossible to know much of the future, but some things are fairly predictable. One of those 'things' is mortgage rates.

The good news is that rates are still attractive. The bad news is that rates will continue to rise. How high they rise depends on the Federal Reserve and the economy. How these factors interact is the subject of an article from the Improvement Center. Read the article ...Here.
The conclusion? The conclusion is that there's no time like now to buy your Cape home. As rates go up AND home prices go up, your Cape dream home gets further away. So, act sooner than later.

Photo of the Day - Cape Cod Shingle Art

Every once in a while I come across something that's a bit different and deserves to be displayed. Over these last few years I've noticed some 'shingle' art on the sides of homes and garages. This form of art uses the 3D aspect of cedar siding with clever cutouts and natural wood shading variations to create dramatic images. Check out the handiwork of artist Roger Dumas of Eastham. He calls his business 'Jolly Roger Woodworking'. Click on the photo to get a closer look.


Roger's studio is here in Eastham, on Cole Rd. Check out his Facebook Business Page for more photos and for his contact information..  Fun!
