My 2014 Eastham Sales - A Pretty Good Year!

This past year was a pretty good year for selling real estate in Eastham.

As reported earlier, there were 129 sales of single family homes, 10 condo sales, and 8 parcels of residential land. Download my February newsletter (link on left) for details and commentary on Eastham's real estate market.

I had a part (either a Buyer's or Seller's agent, or both) of 19 of those sales. Check out a map of my 2014 Outer Cape sales. As you can see, Eastham is my 'home turf'.

Winter Storm 2015 - Could Have Been Worse

The Outer Cape got what was promised. No more, no less. By my reading, we got about 10-12 inches of snow. Lots of wind. Nicely, I didn't lose power at my house (although there was a report that P-Town lost power). That's the good news.

The bad news is that the wind and waves took out the Nauset Light Beach stairs. It's become an annual event. There was some flooding on Rt 6 near Gov. Prence Rd and by the Goose Hummock in Orleans. Once again, the waves broke through the beach to overflow the Pamet River in Truro.  I'm certain there will be other damage reported tomorrow.

Spring is only 5-6 weeks away (I declare March 1st as my unofficial start to Spring). Yay!  The photo below was taken by the National Park Service mid-day today.

The Blizzard of 2015 - Will The Outer Cape Get Hammered?

Snowmageddon 2015. Some are likening the blizzard we are slated to get to the famous 'Blizzard of 1978', that wreaked havoc on much of Cape Cod, including wiping out Henry Beston's Outermost House. We are told that before noon-time tomorrow we'll be getting 6 - 12 (some sources say 24) inches of snow on the Outer Cape. The good news for us is that we aren't getting the 30 inches that'll likely fall on Boston and its closest suburbs. Yikes!

The 'real' problem might well be wind gusts - potentially up to 75 mph, hurricane strength. These winds will likely cause widespread power outages. We spent much of today preparing for the winds and loss of power. Flashlights, oil lamps, batteries, etc. We're ready.

If I have power you can check back tomorrow for an update.
