Skaneateles Real Estate - October 3rd - October 17th
Before I forget (as if I would) I have an open house this weekend at my new (sort of) listing in Skaneateles. Please come! Tell me you saw it here! The house is 50 West Genesee, almost across from the new Krebs. If the photo or the location sounds familiar, it is. I listed and sold this last year. The owners are relocating and want the house to move with them, but alas, it can't. So you have the opportunity to buy it! Hooray!
Four bedrooms, three full baths, a third floor that is now being used as a media room. Incredible woodwork throughout - really, a pleasure to show. Check it out online: ML# S280791 It's priced below where we had it last year, even - now $415,000. See you between 1:00 and 3:00 on Sunday.
There are actually only 109 listings in the Skaneateles area of the multiple listing service. Of these, 32 are in the Village and 29 are waterfront. Besides this beauty above, five other houses came on the market during this time frame. Three are waterfront, ranging form a low of around $600,000 to a high of two million. The other two houses are in the town, and less than 50 West Genesee - with less space, too.
In the under contract categories there are 35 houses! Seven are new, including two that made the trip from newly active to contingent during this time period. Priced right and they sold!
As has been our custom, two more homes closed, bringing our total to 92 so far with still 10 weeks to go in the year. Both sold right around the $400,000 mark.....hmmmmm.....kind of like 50 West Genesee.....Let's see if we can add that to the contingent list by the time the next update blog gets written.
