August 2015 Waterbury, Vermont Real Estate Update, all about Montpelier!

I love Montpelier. It's such a cool town with such cool people. I love the idea that you can live there and visit absolutely everything on foot. I would be walking to my knitting store, Yarn, every day. I would sit and knit with my friends there and find new and interesting patterns and yarns to get lost in. Then, I would visit my friends at Onion River Sports and see what's new in the biking and outdoor gear world. Next, on to Three Penny Taproom for some interesting and unique food and drink. 

I have a new listing at 132 Hill Street in Montpelier which I would like to to tell you about. This is such a perfect house for knitting because of the lovely back deck overlooking the terraced gardens and the river. For a downtown Montpelier home, this has a very large and private yard. It also has 3 levels of living space and is full of old world charm and character, including beautiful hardwood floors and other natural woodwork. The kitchen is bright and spacious and has an inviting, warm feel. The sellers have recenting invested in some extensive foundation work that was needed to get this home back into tip top shape. It's done and is ready for you too see! Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to to take a look. I would love to show it to you!

Late Summer 2015 Real Estate Update and Market Report

I think you will find the latest Washington County statistics very interesting...

Of special note is the increase in listings of 11.3% year to date on single family residential dwellings, and closed sales up almost 30%. Wooo hooo! This is incredible but I'm not surprised because I had the busiest spring I have ever had in my 15 years of selling real estate. The average sales price is up as well and the days on market are down. All good and very encouraging news. We are really trending in the right direction. 

It's a little calmer now, but that's just because I chose to take some time off to do some biking up at the Kingdom Trails and spend some time with my family. Today is my first day back in the office and I have already been slammed. So, here we go again!! I'm not complaining! 

I also want to put in a plug for my new listing in Duxbury on Dowsville Road. This is a really interesting home with an entirely separate building that is great for family and friends. Do you have elderly parents or a teenager who lives with you? There is a detached cottage with water, heat and septic which is perfect for that situation. There is a full kitchen, two bedrooms, a great shed for parking vehicles and toys, and very pretty hardwood floors. The main house is newer and more modern in style, and features a fireplace, hardwood flooring, three bedrooms and two baths. Please check it out and feel free to share the information.
