Skaneateles Real Estate - The Weekly Update

Nice time of year, now that the warmth has returned.  People are out looking and buying actually.  A RE/MAX agent called me today to tell me about a property coming on the market that he knew my buyers would want to see.  The old days are coming back.  "Hurry and buy this house before it goes away!"

Which reminds me - we reduced the price of 1650 Coon Hill Road to $169,900 today.  I will hold it open on Sunday from 1:00 to 3:00.  It's had a good deal of activity but no offers - yet.  As I told the sellers, and I firmly believe, there is a price at which the world comes a-calling.  Let's hope it's this price, this weekend - or even before.  Just two miles outside of the village from the light on East Lake Road.  And such a great back yard stretching waaaaay back, with two sheds and sheltering trees on the sides.  Come see!

There are currently 96 single family homes available in the Skaneateles area of the multiple listing service.  Of these, 28 are in the village and 26 are waterfront.  We are still far under last year's numbers of active listings.  Two new homes came on the market this week, and two others were re-listed.  The new ones are both in the upper $200,000s, one in the village and the other with lake rights in the town.

In the under contract category there are 30 homes - the highest number I can remember seeing in these blogging years.  Four new ones went contingent, coincidentally (or not) all Village homes too.  Their prices range from the mid-$100,000 to almost $600,000 - at least those are the published list prices.

We now have 25 closed properties so far this year.  One of the smaller ones closed, and not in the Village.  This bodes well for 1650 Coon Hill - one less competitive home.  Check out more photos online - the ML# is S261632.  See you this Sunday!
