Public Access to the Ocean and Private Property

Private property in Massachusetts is typically owned to the low water mark, but the Commonwealth of Massachusetts owns lands below the low water mark. Moreover, Chapter 91 of the Massachusetts General Laws preserves the public's right to "fish, fowl, and navigate" waters of the Commonwealth, including lands in the intertidal zone (between the high and low water marks), even if it is privately owned. This law does not convey the right to cross private property or uplands to reach these areas. Some Chapter 91 licenses provide for public access to intertidal areas across intertidal areas.

Is it true that the beaches in Massachusetts are owned all the way down to the low tide line?

Each state has its own laws regarding who owns the beach. In most coastal states, the public owns the land seaward of the high tide line, and in some states public ownership extends even higher. In Massachusetts courts have consistently ruled that in the 1640s we gave away title to the land between the mean high tide line and the low tide line to the adjacent upland owners. Therefore, this area, known as the "intertidal zone" or "wet sand area" is generally privately owned in Massachusetts.

 he law states that the coastal homeowner owns the land all the way to the low tide line, but the low tide line changes every day. What low tide line does the law refer to?

Because the precise low tide line changes daily, the average, or mean, low tide line is used. There is an ongoing dispute as to whether you should use this so called "mean low tide line," or the "mean extreme low tide line." The former is the average of all low tides and the latter is the average of extreme low tides.

When the average cost of a new home exceed  4 times than the national average salary real estate prices getting too high!!!

Based on the national average home price of $170,000, minus a 10% down payment, a $153,000, 30-year fixed rate mortgage at 6.32% would mean monthly payments covering principal and interest of $949.02. The same payment during the fixed term of an adjustable rate mortgage at 3.87% is 719.03, a 24% difference.

A 719.03 payment you wil need to make $2,876.12 per month or $37,389.56 for a house price of $170,000!

    2006 Housing Market Bubble: Today's Selloff In Real Estate...and How Many Years Before the Next Bull Market least 30  to 50 years!!!

                                                        April 5.2004 Real Estate Stocks  it doesn't look good

Real estate market will fell just like the Nasdaq
       why seller should get a 50% less than 3 years
       The real estate market is going to crash?
       "Volume of home sales true indicator of real estate market"

Changes are year over year.
People need to realize that real estate is generally a very long-term investment, and its primary purpose should be for shelter. When our clients are buying real estate, we ask that they evaluate the cash flows, operating costs, expected outflows and such. Interestingly enough, we were very positive on investing in real estate in the early 1990's. Here in the Northeast we saw home prices fall from the peaks of the '80's and there were incredible opportunities in real estate. We do feel that those opportunities will exist again. Real estate at this point reminds us of the NASDAQ mania of the late 1990's.

In many countries the stockmarket bubble has been replaced by a property-price bubble. Sooner or later it will burst, says Pam Woodall, our economics editor

“BUYING property is by far the safest investment you can make. House prices will never fall like share prices.” This is the advice offered by countless estate agents around the globe. In the absence of attractive investment opportunities elsewhere, home buyers have needed little encouragement: from London to Madrid and from Washington to Sydney, rising house prices have been the hot topic of conversation at dinner parties. Over the past seven years, house prices in many countries have risen at their fastest rate ever in real terms. And now institutional investors are also eagerly shifting money from equities into commercial property. Many property analysts scoff at the suggestion that another bubble is in the making. House prices may have fallen after previous booms, but “this time is different”, they insist. That is precisely what equity analysts said when share prices soared in the late 1990s. They were proved wrong. Will the property experts suffer the same fate?
