Al Capone
Not going to go into the opportunities, which there are many, around Hot Springs, Arkansas, the town where Al Capone was known to relax and President Bill Clinton worked, but hopefully I got your attention.

The market remains robust. Here is a perfect example of how robust and how the Nantucket real estate market stays robust over the long run. 51 Milk Street, a 1,565 sf 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath house built in 1992 on a 5,227 sf lot, sold for $254,500 on 6/2/94, then for $625,000 on 4/29/03, then, after landscaping and driveway improvements, for $1,225,000 on 10/26/05, then after some renovations, for $1,358,100 on 4/21/17 and now it is under agreement for, I'm guestimating, $1,950,000. Not much appreciation between '05 and '17, but each sale price surpassed the previous sale price. Over the long run, real estate values go up, especially on Nantucket.

Creativity is Key
Creativity is Key
We love to raise the bar and bring property values up across the board. From duplexes to waterfront, we are making it happen.

In raising the bar it takes the broker's ingenuity to create value. There was a house and cottage with the house fronting on one street and the cottage fronting on another street. Perfect setup for a subdivision.

We were able to creatively subdivide the property and separate as though they had always existed separately. Our next move in making it happen is to price the properties appropriately. If you price the property too high, it will sit. If you price it too low, you are doing a disservice to your client and reflecting negatively on the market.

We priced the properties using the JPFCO skill set, and it was a success. Both properties received offers a few percentage points from asking, raising the overall value of Nantucket real estate. Making it happen rain, snow, sleet or shine! Happy Spring!!!
