All right let’s talk a little real estate this morning, can we talk about median price and all that first here?
Yes the average price for a single family in Osterville is about a million dollars. So a lot of these weeks we’ve been talking about affordable towns this isn’t as affordable but you certainly get what you pay for down here it’s a wonderful
But a girl can dream
All right let’s talk about the first house.
All right so the first home is 45 Newport Lane, it’s a traditional colonial, a little under 2000 square feet, plenty of updates as you’ll see from the pictures, what I like about this home up in Boston you’ve got crushed stone driveways? Well this one has crushed shells!
I love that at the Cape.
So this is a great buy, it’s on for $484,000 so much less than as Anthony says the average sale price down here. Very nice home.
So well below the average price, you get a nice looking house you get to be in a beautiful area.
Absolutely it could be a nice starter home or even a transition buyer from up in Boston coming down
Absolutely, well all right let’s talk about house number two who’s got that one?
Yup, I do it’s 23 Wianno Circle, it’s actually right up the street.
Oh so it’s close!
Listed for $799,000, it’s a contemporary Cape, 4 bedrooms 2 and a half baths, it has the master suite on the first floor and what else should I say here, it’s got cathedral ceilings, gas fireplace, updated kitchen, granite countertops, and it’s right down the street from the beach.
Walk to the beach, I believe.
That alone is enough to sell me a house.
And that one is, what is it on for, a little under $800,000?
Yes, $799,000. And it’s right on the golf course.
A little bit more than the other one.
A little more.
A little less than the average but still a beautiful house. Let’s talk about house number 3.
A nice vacation home, perhaps if you’re in the market for one point five.
Anthony why don’t you pick it up on your way out with the kids?
Yeah I’ll go with the money in my pocket. I’ll go buy it. The kids got shy and took off. I think a fight broke out between them.
Leave the TV to daddy.
Exactly!All right John McGeough and Anthony Lamacchia we appreciate you as always.[/toggle_content]
