Ask the Experts: Real Estate Deals and Steals Summer 2015

We wanted to know, what is the best real estate value in your area today? Are there any real estate deals left?

We asked our experienced LandVest brokers throughout New England: what is the most solid investment of all the great listings in your area? Here’s what they had to say.

Rhode Island

Terry Boyle, a luxury broker on Boston’s South Shore and RI says, “The Barrington Waterfront listing is a beautifully renovated home right on Smith’s cove, a peninsula between Narraganset Bay and the Warren River. It’s within walking distance to the beach, nearby the country club, home to one of Rhode Island’s top ranked school systems, and just 10 miles from Providence.”

Boston Suburbs, MA

Stanley Edwards, a member of our Metro West Team, had this to say about 65 Oxbow Road in Lincoln, MA, “Set on 2.87± acres, this updated contemporary residence is designed for an extended family or a home-based business with an attached fully-functional one bedroom apartment. It has six bedrooms including a ground floor guest suite and a basement level au pair suite, playroom, wine cellar, and plenty of storage and closet space. Located on a private site, the property abuts the Farrar Pond conservation land and trails with access to Farrar Pond and beyond. Plus, there is plenty of kid space, there is a rock climbing wall in the garage, a craft room in the basement, a large fenced in backyard with a heated in ground pool, and plenty of space to play. Based on size, location, and useability, this is a steal.”

Central, MA

Keith Ross thinks Georgetown Castle is a deal. You can, “Own a piece of Olmstead history with the most unbelievable view!”


South Coast, MA



Stewart Young, a broker who works throughout Cape Cod, the South Coast, and Boston’s Metro West, thinks that Salter’s Point Classic in South Dartmouth is a great deal, “This classic home is located in the private community of Salter’s Point at the entrance to Buzzards Bay from the Atlantic Ocean. It takes full advantage of the seaside location with a classic front porch, back patio, and a glassed enclosed sunroom. Salter’s Point community offers landscaped oceanfront grounds, community tennis courts, and a small golf course. Additionally, the community amenities include sandy beaches, a pier, a boat mooring field, and a club house.”


Broker Joanne Dresser, who works on projects throughout Metro West, the South Coast Region and Nantucket, thinks a Resort Home in The Bay Club is a great deal, “The home is located in the private Bay Club in Mattapoisett, it is the lowest priced home available and has been priced accordingly for a quick sale. 48 Prince Snow Circle is a beautiful sunlit residence with an expansive feel and open floor plan. The Bay Club features a Brad Faxton golf course, tennis, pool, paddle tennis, private dining, fitness center, junior programs, and cultural events.”



Story Jenks, a Vermont based broker, has this to say about the Grassy Brook Farmstead:
“Grassy Brook Farmstead fits the bill of the classic Vermont property on good acreage at a great price. The white clapboard 1823 cape and an impressive 2-story bank barn are surrounded by expansive meadows, with a total of 110 acres. And being just north of Brattleboro it has good proximity to New York and Connecticut.”



Broker John Scribner, of Maine, on Skye Farm,
“Skye Farm in Waterford, Maine. Every time I visit this property it’s like a dream: the history, the architecture, the laid-back community. Summer time brings relaxing in the waterside cottage while the kids are jumping off the dock into McWain Pond, the doubles matches on the tennis court. Come winter, up in the 2-story barn for a challenge on the pool table and waxing the skis for a day at the slopes at nearby top-notch skiing. Truly a family compound.”

Karen N. Reiche on Cundy’s Point,
“Cundy’s Point in Harpswell, Maine. The seller purchased this property in 2007 and did some amazing improvements such as creating a home theater, an exercise room with a sauna, a billiard room and an additional bath for a bedroom suite. And did I mention the amazing views, waterfrontage and deepwater dock? If you want Maine oceanfront but not high taxes, Harpswell is the place to be!
