Waterbury Real Estate Update and Winterfest

The Alchemist Ice Sculpture

It's Winterfest this week in Waterbury...a week of winter fun and excitement all around town. Opening ceremonies were Friday, with the ceremonial cutting of an ice ribbon. Other events included back country skiing, broom ball, sled hockey, speed skating, and an Ice Capades event.

I was in the Village Saturday night with my boyfriend and the place was humming with activity. I peeked into a couple of restaurant windows before settling on Blue Stone Pizza (A Winterfest sponsor) on Stowe Street. Fortunately I was able to get a table almost immediately, and met some friends who were headed to the Harwood Union High School boys hockey game later that evening at the Ice Center.

Beer Cellar

The other new news in town is the grand opening of the Beer Cellar which features 283 craft beers from 117 craft breweries. As well all know, a new beer store is exactly what Waterbury needs. Now we just need another set of public restrooms. And I just heard a rumor about a new eatery in town...stay tuned....

Waterbury, Vermont Real Estate Update

DSC01988The holidays have passed and I am back at it, ready to start rocking and rolling! I took some time off to spend with family and to relax, and I am certainly feeling rejuvinated. It's been quiet on the real estate front in Waterbury, with only two pending residential properties (may I add that both are our listings). This is very typical for this time of year, and I expect it will start picking up now. I have some great listings to start out the year and 2014 promises to be very strong. The interest rates continue to rise, so the quicker buyers get on it the better! Please keep me in mind as you start your search. I can arrange for you to have automatic emails sent with any new listings that meet your criteria. For sellers, I can provide a comprehensive market analysis after visiting your home and give you a direct and honest (I've been told a little too honest at times) valuation of your home, with no obligation. Here's to a great year and thank you in advance for your business!
