Skaneateles Real Estate - The Sometime Update (March 21 - April 3rd)

As you can see, our household has been taken over by Final Four fever.  I bought orange table mats, a citrus candle, and these four orange tulips.  Soon there will only be two...Hopefully, of course, Syracuse.

In the meantime, there are houses to sell and homes to buy!  Currently there are only 72 active listings in the Skaneateles area of the multiple listing service.  Of these, 16 are in the Village and 19 are waterfront.  Eight are sort of new - four are re-listed (freshened) for the season.  Four others range in price from the mid-$200,000s to waterfront closer to a million but not quite there.  One is Village, but the others are either on the water or have lake rights.

In the under contract categories there are only 15, but 6 are new.  Interestingly enough, 5 are in the town, none are waterfront, and there is only one in the Village.

And then we come to the closed properties.  We now have 19 - one more and I will be writing about the First Twenty, spelling out the addresses and the published sale prices.  The new ones cover the Village, Town and waterfront.  They range in price from the mid-$100,000s to over a million.

So - Go Orange!  It has been a spectacular ride this year, and just like the real estate market, filled with ups and downs, tension, relaxation, smiles and tears.  Go Orange!
