Vermont Real Estate Report - July 2012

by Nancy Jenkins, CRB, CRS

If ever there is a time to jump into the housing market, it is now. Prices and rates are the best we have seen in years. The number of deposits and closings are up for the first half of the year. In Chittenden County the number of closed single-family homes is up 24% over last year and closed condominiums are up 25%, both very strong indicators that the market is improving.

Our home supply is starting to shrink. We have only 663 single-family homes available in Chittenden County, which is the lowest level of inventory since 2007. Condo inventory is currently at 248, and we are seeing the average sale price inching up as the available inventory declines. If you are thinking that this is your year for a move, call us now, as this is the best market we have seen since 2007.

Summer in Vermont has so many opportunities. Take a sunset cruise on The Spirit of Ethan Allen, visit one of our many State Parks, or perhaps take a day hike on the Long Trail. Enjoy the beaches on Lake Champlain for swimming, boating, or kayaking. Support your local Farmers Market, where you can meet the people who grow the vegetables, fruit, and meat that grow our local economy.

This is the 15th year we have awarded the Nancy Jenkins Scholarship, which provides $1,000 in tuition support for two college-bound high school seniors. We were delighted to receive a record number of applications, all from teens showing a terrific determination to succeed in their life goals. Congratulations to our 2012 Winners: Joshua Dyke of Essex Junction and Beatriz Urrutia of Shelburne.

If this is your year for a move, call now! I look forward to helping you achieve your dreams.

This month, we are featuring two local Vermont businesses. Our friends at Encore Repurposed Furniture & Collectibles, in Ferrisburg, is giving away a Decorative Outdoor Metal Bird Hanger ($55 Value). The Catamount Family Center is offering 2 for 1 Area Use for hiking, riding, and running through Oct 1. 

Stoweflake Balloon Festival Comes to Vermont This Weekend

by Nancy Jenkins, CRB, CRS

One of Vermont’s most popular summer celebrations, Stoweflake's 26th Anniversary Hot Air Balloon Festival, happens this weekend. This three-day event will bring more than 25 hot-air balloons to soar through the sky above beautiful Stowe, VT, and surrounding towns.

The Balloon Fest kicks off today at 6:30 p.m with a twilight balloon launch. Sunrise balloon launches follow at 6:30 a.m. on Saturday, July 7, and Sunday, July 8. Enjoy a second twilight launch at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 7. Viewing the morning launches is complimentary for all visitors. Admission for the evening festival events is $10 (children 12 and under are admitted free of charge). A small fee applies for some children's activities.

Want to climb inside for your own hot air balloon ride? Bring your wallet! Private rides cost $275 per person, plus tax, and advanced reservations are recommended. Tethered rides on the hot-air balloons may be available for $10 per person.

One of our favorite past customers, Amanda Culver Gerlack, helps organize this event every year. But this is a Balloon Fest because she's doing it all 8-months pregnant!

See you there!
