GloucesterCastSquareGloucesterCast 122 Cape Ann Real Estate With Kenny MacCarthy and Host Joey Ciaramitaro Taped 3/18/15

Kenny MacCarthy started the GloucesterCast with me over 4 years ago.  I love how Kenny doesn’t sugarcoat anything to do with Real Estate.  There is so much to learn from him about the inner machinations of the Real Estate world today.

If you have a home to sell or want to work with someone that you can trust to give you the straight information instead of trying to sell you something at all costs whether it is the right fit for you or not, Kenny is your guy.

Zillow Talk, How to use and The MarketWATCH From Kenny MacCarthy

From: Gloucester
25 and it’s starting to feel
a lot like Christmas

Watching real estate data is my job. Zillow has a data base of over 4 million sales. They know how to track trends.

Important to note:

  • Homes close to Starbucks vs Dunkin Donuts have appreciated 5% more over the last 5 years.
  • It’s the “worst house in the best neighborhood” for a reason. Don’t buy it.
  • If you do the math, ARMs are almost always a much better deal than Fixed Rate mortgages.
  • Sometimes renting makes more financial sense than buying. I have a formula if you want it.

Is the time right for you to make a move? It depends. Let me know if you want to talk about it.

Hi Joey,

Over the last few months, I’ve compiled a lot of information on the new FEMA regulations and flood zones here on Cape Ann. The links are all in one place on my blog. Just click here.

If you don’t need this, share it with someone that does. It’s a big deal and will really affect property values.

As always, let me know if I can help.

    Kenny MacCarthy and Ron Gelineau Represent! (wearin the stonewashed cap)

    Dear Joey,
    My oldest childhood friend, Ron Gelineau, (we were tossed from CCD class for chuckling at “the burning bush”)
    is in town on vacation with his wife Melanie and daughter Regan. You may have seen
    him hanging around your parking lot ’cause he’s a die hard GMG fan and Gloucester resident wannabe.
    We were at Capt’ Carlo’s for dinner last night (fab eats, BTW! Ask for “Carl”. Great waiter!) when I told him about the “new hats”. Well, he had to have one. So, I whipped mine outta’ the trunk for a photo op. Unfortunately, we couldn’t do a group
    photo as we only have 1 hat. So, please order more hats so Ronny and I can both have one. (Ronny’s got mine!)
    Kenny MacCarthy


    Kenny MacCarthy Captures Gloucester Slackliners

    Kenny writes-

    Hey J. Thanks for the hat. LOVE it. Are you ordering more? I’ll take at least 5 if you are.
    Saw these 2 guys slacklining the other night. Good video:
