Real Estate Roadshows at Vineyard Open House Real Estate


Vineyard Open House Real Estate will hold a series of informational “Real Estate Roadshows” at its Vineyard Haven office, every Friday for the month of March.

Inspired by PBS’s Antique Roadshow, the real estate version features local experts who will speak on mortgage financing, maximizing rental income, flood insurance, and more. The public is invited. Hot coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and fresh muffins will be served at the events, which will run each Friday from 9 am until noon.

Tim Lowe, vice president at Martha’s Vineyard Savings Bank, was featured in the inaugural event on March 6, and focused on creative ways to finance the purchase of primary and secondary homes.

This Friday, March 13, Realtor Kristin Zern will discuss “How to Maximize Your Summer Rental Income.” Tips will focus on how to set the most profitable rates, what renters look for in summer rental, marketing advice, and more. Zern, who lives in West Tisbury, has been managing rental property on Martha’s Vineyard for 30 years, and is a Realtor at Vineyard Open House Real Estate.

Tammy King of Cape Cod 5 will be featured on Friday, March 20, and on March 27, a home insurance specialist will explain how the latest rules on flood zones will affect homeowners insurance.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their questions for a personal response. Vineyard Open House Real Estate is located at 10 Union Street in Vineyard Haven (right across from Murdick’s Fudge.) For more information, contact David Lott, owner/Realtor, Vineyard Open House Real Estate, at 508-338-2495.
