Our market is hot! Deposits are up in many price pockets, in a number of towns. Bidding wars are occurring for homes that are well-priced and in good condition. Builders are busy again and new homes are popping up all over our market area.

The recovery is just beginning in the outer areas and in some of the higher ranges, but even slower-to-move price ranges and towns have seen better activity this spring.

Cities like Las Vegas and parts of Florida that were hit hard by foreclosures are now experiencing housing shortages. As the recovery starts in the major markets, Vermont will not be far behind as a secondary market. 

Here at the Nancy Jenkins Team, our deposits and closed properties are up with 111 properties year to date. We are seeing our clients and customers closing mortgages with historically low interest rates. Based on the national news, I am expecting them to rise slowly over the new few years.

I urge you to consider this year as your year for a move or for purchasing an investment property, if that is in your plans. Do not miss this opportunity to have so many of the pieces of the puzzle in place–low prices, low rates, and lots of choice.

Welcome to Emma Baird, our new Marketing Coordinator. Originally from Rhode Island, Emma brings to this role over four years of experience in customer service. We are also excited to welcome back Bill Lawlor. Bill was an integral agent on our team from 2001 to 2008. He looks forward to helping you achieve your real estate goals.

***This month, we featured two local Vermont businesses. Red Wagon Plants gave away a $50 Gift Certificate to their garden store, based in Hinesburg, Vermont. The Lake Monsters, our hometown minor league baseball team, offered a "Buy One Get One Free" coupon for baseball lovers. 
 

Client Testimonial

Nancy Jenkins and her wonderful team made selling our house a stress free process, even in today’s market. We listed in December, and sold by March!! She was spot-on with pricing, and was able to get great results. Feedback, returning calls, advice, was all within a phone call away. Her recommendations for moving, banking, and more helped us to proceed to our future goal! Thank you to Nancy and her whole office :)
