The good news is that fishing for Bluefish by boat off the South Shore and elsewhere around Nantucket property has been pretty good. The bad news is that they have not been close enough for beach anglers to reach them with any consistent frequency. For Nantucket beach house fishermen, in fact, the summer doldrums appear to have arrived a few weeks earlier than normal. The water has really warmed up which has made catching Bass off the beach during the day a difficult endeavor. Normally the Bluefish invasion would take up the slack but this has not been the case so far. To make matters worse, a large portion of Great Point has been closed off again to Beach traffic.
As the water warms up, Nantucket fishermen begin to think about the arrival of Bonita and False Albacore. We will probably have to wait at least three or four weeks for the Bonita although there has been a report of Spanish Mackerel being caught in Long Island Sound.
Bottom fishing for Black Sea Bass and Fluke by Boat continues to be very good and the wire liners are scoring off Sankaty and the east end of the Island.
As we have said before, the Charter Boat Captains and local fishing tackle shops know where the fish are and will take you there or tell you where to go so be sure to check with them.
Nantucket, MA— Several agents at Windwalker Real Estate recently earned the nationally recognized Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource Certification. The National Association of REALTORS® offers the SFR Certification to REALTORS® who want to help both buyers and sellers navigate these complicated transactions, as demand for professional expertise with distressed sales grows.
According to a recent NAR survey, nearly one-third of all existing homes sold recently were either short sales or foreclosures. For many real estate professionals, short sales and foreclosures are the new “traditional” transaction. REALTORS® who have earned the SFR Certification know how to help sellers maneuver the complexities of short sales as well as help buyers pursue short sale and foreclosure opportunities.
“As leading advocates for homeownership, REALTORS® believe that any family that loses its home to foreclosure is one family too many, but unfortunately, there are situations in which people just cannot afford to keep their homes, and a foreclosure or a short sale results,” said 2009 NAR President Charles McMillan. “Foreclosures and short sales can offer opportunities for home buyers and benefit the larger community, as well, but it’s extremely important to have the help of a real estate professional like a REALTOR® who has earned the SFR Certification for these kinds of purchases.”
Please contact one of our agents and put our experience and expertise to work.

Washington, July 01, 2010 (Realtor.org) The National Association of Realtors® today commended Congress for timely passage of two bills to extend the homebuyer tax credit closing deadline and reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Program. Both bills, strongly supported by NAR, had cleared the House earlier and were passed by the Senate last night. They now head to the president for his signature.
