Our long and cool spring bloomed beautifully this month and rewarded us with a string of beautiful sunny days, flowers blooming in abundance and warm breezes.

The real estate market has also been blooming and is keeping pace with the very strong 2015 market. A steady and healthy market with homes in all price ranges with increased showings and in some cases very strong competition from buyers.

Nancy Jenkins Real Estate is proud to be leading the market with closed sales. We have assisted over 112 clients and customers through May 17th this year. We are seeing many homes going under deposit with multiple offers.

I continue to be encouraged by the lower inventory which is moving prices higher, great low interest rates and strong buyer demand. While there is talk of the Federal Reserve raising rates, mortgage rate remain affordable at 3.5% with zero points.

Summer will soon be here, and as we all play and plan, I urge you to consider that if this is your year for a move, it may be the best time to do so for many years. The interest rates will undoubtedly go up in the next year.

We are looking forward to a beautiful Vermont summer with local farmers markets returning. Soon the Discover Jazz Festival will be here as well as adventures at Shelburne Farms, visits to our local beaches and State Parks, kayaking and boating on Lake Champlain and those amazing summer sunsets.

If 2016 is your year for a move, now is the time to call!
