Mid Island

  Prime for the Pickin'

The market, in general, is well above the previous high and it doesn't seem to be slowing. In the long run, Nantucket real estate values go the only way to the sky. However, if you are a more financially motivated than lifestyle Buyer and have the dough, there are some deals to be had, especially in the $5-10mm market. These are typically the listings where the Seller has either bought another property on Island (mostly an upgrade) and just doesn't want to have two, big properties on Nantucket or they've had a fundamental change in their lives (moved to California, changed jobs, etc) and they can easily afford to take a hit; it won't financially change their lifestyles. So, if you make them an offer within striking distance, they'll probably bite. Feel free to contact your favorite ACK broker to hear ones we think are prime for the pickin'.

Happy Stroll!

  Deep Undercover

We have a client that has done 30 + deals with team JPFCO. He is selling one and wants to do a 1031 tax free exchange into another deal but nothing is looking good to him. Time to make it happen. Team JPFCO goes deep undercover and digs up a deal not currently listed. We find him an 1820's house in a great spot with epic views. Since the house is historic we put together a strong team to permit a new house and move the existing structure to a different portion of the lot. Our clients are Our friends and Our friends are Our clients. This is how we make it happen at JPFCO!!!

  Strolling into the Holidays!

Happy Nantucket Stroll! Stroll has long since been one of Nantucket's most enchanting traditions. With warm memories of Thanksgiving feasts, tree lighting ceremonies and chilly Polar Plunges behind us, the celebration continues throughout the entire month. A variety of activities and fun ranging from Santa's arrival, carolers, shopping and dining are sure to delight the entire family. The month of December on Nantucket is reminiscent of classic, Americana imagery right out of a Norman Rockwell scene.

Enjoy the festivities by booking a rental in or around town. There are many options ranging in price within walking distance of Main Street and all the action! Cozy up by a warm fire in an intimate little cottage, choose a spacious and stately home or something in between! Give yourself a gift and book your festive holiday weekend with J Pepper Frazier Company!

  El Tigra

Boca Grande prices are low. Way low. Not comparably, but not where they should be. Is that a good thing? It depends, I guess. We all like to have high values (except when the tax man comes a knock, knockin' on your door) on our properties, but does it change the character of of the location?

In Nantucket, a great deal of the Island's work force is imported, obviously adding additional expenses. In Boca Grande, there are some workmen, not many, but nonetheless available in a limited capacity. There are no more caddies on Boca Grande. On Nantucket, In essence there are few locals and with their diminishing presence, the real characters disappear. Pray tell. Why did they shut the Coffin School? I mean in Nantucket there are no more El Tigras, Billy Dexters or any number of Penroses, to name a few. For me, I miss those guys and they have been replaced by a bunch of Yahoos who sit on the Main Street benches and think they blend in. They don't. It's sort of like seeing a guy at a party in a leisure suit who thinks he's sharp. As my father wrote: Not even Nehru looked good in a Nehru Jacket. Character is character and it cannot be artificially reproduced. That's my Sigmund Freud thought for the day. Probably, the year.
