The world goes on - despite Sandy, despite the loss of friends. And that's how it should be. So without further adieu....
There are currently 101 active listings in the Skaneateles area of the multiple listing service. (This update encompasses October 24th through October 31st.) Of these, 30 are in the Village and 28 are waterfront. Only two new listings came on and they are both re-lists.
In the under contract categories there are now 39 waiting to close. Three are new, two in the Town and one in the Village.
The number of closings is now 97 - unbelievable! At this time last year Skaneateles had only 55 closed single family homes. Think of it! Looking at the surrounding towns - Camillus, Marcellus, and Elbridge plus Auburn - each and every one has more closings than they did (year-to-date) in 2011. The entire county of Onondaga has 3,116 homes sold - last year at this time it was only 2,838. These are significant statistics - the world is changing once again, and as usual real estate is leading the way.
