Skaneateles Real Estate - The Weekly Update

Happy Thanksgiving!  It is a glorious day here in Central New York!  Bob and I started a new tradition today to celebrate.  We decided to walk where we haven't gone before, and this year we chose the Creekwalk in Syracuse.  We parked the car in Armory Square by the Redhouse, and then followed the yellow line that led us out of the Square and over to Onondaga Creek.  While it wasn't Riverside Park on the West Side in Manhattan, we did see several joggers, other people with dogs (yes, Boo came with us) and a few walkers.  We ran into an old friend, Peter, whom we hadn't seen in a while and had a wonderful catching up talk.  Try the Creekwalk - it really shows you the city from a different angle, and also shows the possibilities.

Currently there are 135 active listings in the Skaneateles area of the multiple listing service.  Of these, 39 are in the Village and 30 are waterfront.  Only one new property came on the market, and that is a re-list. 

Four properties are marked contingent, and one is new, a pretty home outside of the town but still in Skaneateles Schools.  Five are now under contract, do not show, including a new Village home.  Seven have been pended, with nothing new.  Altogether, there are 61 homes now listed as sold, the most recent one being a waterfront home closing well over a million dollars.

It's a shortened version, I know - but I have three more pies to make!  Enjoy the day!
