GROUND NOTES FROM DALTON
|Real estate brokerage has beautiful jargon with well-known phrases. Maybe some of these phrases stick with us because they involve such a big asset with a lot on the line - "Buyer's Remorse", "Cold Feet" - but, regardless, they do.
A lesser known phrase is "Seller's Remorse". Except, on Nantucket. We constantly deal with "Seller's Remorse", which you can't say about many places. People simply don't want to get boxed out of the market and/or give up such a high performing asset. I think, if Seller's Remorse > Buyer's Remorse, then Strong Market and there's far more Seller's Remorse going on in this market.

NOTES FROM PEPPER THE ELDER
| Boca Grande - the Sconset of Florida|
|Okay. Time to get serious. Yeah, right. And to show you just how serious, I am willing to wager my picture of Mr. Ed being ridden (no not in the biblical sense) by Don Ameche and autographed by both august individuals. I may have to retract that biblical reference because there is a definite glint in the Ol' Ameche's eyes. Back to the serious stuff. The price a la mode in Boca Grande is the $2 mil range. I guarantee (and hence the wager) this will change to $2.5 mil by next year, an increase of around 30%. Not a bad return these days. Nantucketers will be a major force.
Libby and I had a meeting with Walter Beinecke years ago, and he was being his normal loquacious self, whereupon I said 'Walter. Let's rap this up. We've got a plane to catch.' He said, 'Where are you going?' I responded, 'A place I've never been to before. Boca Grande.' To which he said 'Ah. 'Sconset in Florida.' And Walter was, as he often was, correct. Boca Grande is about to catch fire, And soon. The same is true of Nantucket. Both are simply under-priced. Take my word for it. With a bet on the line of this magnitude, I cannot afford to be wrong.
