Fall is arriving and with it the beautiful foliage that will have leaf peepers from all over the country coming to visit Vermont. Now is a great time to take a drive through the back country roads to view the brilliant autumn colors around every corner. Stop in for a pumpkin at your favorite farm stand, head to the orchard for apple picking and enjoy the glorious fall sunshine.

This year the Fall/Winter 2017 market, will I believe, continue to show steady strength. Historically Fall is strong with an increase in deposits over the summer months when children are out of school and as July and August are peak vacation months. Relocation is also strong during late fall and into the spring, which brings many new families looking for homes during a time when fewer home are typically available.

As we continue to experience lower number of homes and condos with 533 combined available as of September 1st (down 19% from last year at this time). Mortgage rates have fallen to 3.75% for 30 year zero point options, and home prices are forecasted to rise in this environment. If you have been thinking of selling a home, condo or investment property, now is a great time to consider putting it on the market- call us today.

We have much to be grateful for in Vermont and we want to always help others who are in need. With all the recent news about Hurricane Harvey and Irma and their effect on both the US and the entire Caribbean, there are many families who have lost basic shelter and need our help. The fastest way to help those in need is to send money but be sure to send to a vetted fund like The Red Cross or Global Giving. In the coming days and months, all of us need to dig deep, and share our abundance with others in need.

I look forward to our market which is strong and healthy remaining that way through the near future and into next year.

Enjoy Fall!

Call today- it will be our pleasure to assist you with your real estate needs.
