Real Estate Resources

  • Massachusetts Land Records - The best resource for public documents recorded at the local registry of deeds.  On this site, one can find any/all recorded documents relating to specific properties - deed, mortgages, etc.
     

  • Vision Appraisal Resource on the web for information from town assessors.  Provides basic information on properties in many areas of New England, including Edgartown, Oak Bluffs, Vineyard Haven and West Tisbury.  Shows town assessed values and basic property elements - house size, lot size, and more.
     

  • MV Landbank - The Martha's Vineyard Land Bank was established in 1986 to acquire land so as to protect open spaces, roadside vistas and sensitive ecological areas on the island. All Martha's Vineyard property transfers are subject to a 2% Land Bank fee, which must be paid by the Buyer at closing. First time home buyers are exempt from the first $400,000 of the purchase price as long as the 5 year residency requirement is met. Properties owned by the Martha's Vineyard Land Bank are open daily to the general public from sunrise to sundown, except during hunting season. Trails are marked throughout the properties and boundary markers indicate where public land ends and private land begins. The Martha's Vineyard Land Bank posts map signs at many properties' trailheads and is installing others as necessary. Handheld maps of each property, showing trail networks, are available on the Martha's Vineyard Land Bank website.
