This week, since I'm not feeling terribly enlightened by anything major, I am going to give you a mish mash of information. This goes along with our mish mash of weird Vermont weather...first sun, then rain, then snow, then cold, then warm. Love it. Still, the skiing is fabulous and at the same time I'm getting very excited about biking. Like I said, a mish mash. And I'm not even sure that's a real expression, but I believe eveyone knows what I'm talking about.
First of all, the market is really heating up. Regarding the Waterbury and Duxbury residential market, which I keep close tabs on, there are currently 10properties pending or contingent. This is a great improvement over the past few years at this time. And, I am proud to say that my wonderful Century 21 Jack Associates agents have 10 sides pending (either the buyer or seller side of the transaction) of those 10, which gives us 50% market share. This is outstanding! Way to go ladies!
Secondly, I am also pleased to report that a bill in the Vermont House Committee on Ways and Means that included language to put a cap on the Mortgage Interest Deduction (MID) was responded to very strongly by Vermont Realtors. As a result, that portion of the bill was removed and that very important part of homeownerhsip in Vermont has been preserved.
Lastly, I'd like to put in a plug for one of our great listings in Waterbury on Clover Lane. This is being represented by one of our best, Joanie Keating. This home is in mint condition and is located conveniently to the village. Give us a call if you'd like a private showing!!
