While I'm thinking of it, my clients are looking for a home that has a first floor master bedroom/bath and is in good condition, close to the village. They are well-qualified and their home has sold. Pricing somewhere around $200,000 would be wonderful. If you are thinking of selling, or know someone who is, and the home meets these criteria, please call or e-mail me: MBrooks@REMAX.net
I am trying out a new way of reporting on the CUP homes. These are the ones that have a contract on them and are in some stage of the selling process. They could be anywhere from a contract contingent on a home to sell or a day or two away from closing. To you it probably doesn't matter, and since I don't name houses it wouldn't help anyway. So! There are currently 32 homes in this C (contingent) U (under contract, do not show) P (pending) category. Five are new in the past two weeks. They range in price from the low $200,000 list price to a high around $500,000. They are all recently built (stay tuned to why that is important!)
We now have 55 homes that have sold and closed year-to-date. Seven are new in the past two weeks. Two are large waterfront homes and one is smaller, with a smaller price. Three are homes in the town and one is in the village. Except for one of these homes, all are in great shape and the vast majority were built in the last 15 years. I think what we are seeing is a trend towards newer homes, or homes that have been updated, especially the kitchens. Not a single one of the new CUPs or sales was built prior to 1920.
But the spectacular news is the volume of sales. When I say we've been busy - we were! To reiterate, 55 in 2012 to date. Only 30 in 2011, 36 in 2010, 45 in 2009, and sadly only 23 (!) in 2008 had closed by this date.
My suggestion to everyone - sellers or buyers - is not to delay!
