  What is the R-Factor

Recently, NAREB (Nantucket Association of Real Estate Brokers) lightened the rules to become a member of our organization per the DA's instruction. Reason being that the more choices the consumer has, the better for the consumer. I'm wondering if those were sound instructions, though. There are a lot of nuances with Nantucket real estate and if the broker doesn't know them, the consumer could get hurt. For instance, you own a lot in LUG-1, 40k sf, zoning, but your lot is actually 80k sf and shaped like the coast of ACK, do you have one, two or more lots? How do you calculate the R-Factor?

Wait, what is the R-Factor?


We love Summer and love making it happen at JPFCO. The small things in life go a long way and there is lots of love on ACK. The other day we had a Buyer that had just moved into their new house but they had a problem with their heating system, time to make it happen JPFCO style. Due to the cool start to this summer; We have half a cord of wood delivered to the house. JPFCO shows up to the house and lights the fire for the family. The family is warm and the heating system is fixed. Our clients are our friends and our friends are our clients. We are here to make it happen at JPFCO 24/7!!!

  Jack Russells + Nantucket

Well, she's finally here. And in a word, not normally included in a guy's lexicon, she is adorable. Big soft brown eyes. Toes that smell like popcorn and a nose that looks like a black Mason Dot. On tune now. Popcorn toes and a Mason Dot nose, Ho Ho. Floppy brown and white ears, fuzzy feet and a little tail that is constantly wiggling. Oh, in case I forgot. She's a dog. A long-haired Jack Russell, to be exact. This is her first excursion to Nantucket and she has already found Nirvana. And that without yet spying her first Mail Man, mind you. Nantucket is, among other things, a terrier's paradise. Rabbits, squirrels, moles, and rabbits. Lots of rabbits. Rats. Too many rats and that is a Jack Russell specialty: The decimation of rats. And so while the rest of the world seems to be striving for peace, we have welcomed into our world, one word: CHAOS. But I love her. It's great to be back in Nantucket and let's hope for a bountiful summer.
