What has the Hudson Valley Real Estate market been doing?

Spring is always a busy time for agents in the Hudson Valley.  A lot of city visitors are coming up for a weekend and want to find the perfect Woodstock or Hudson River properties for that second home escape.  I have felt extra busy this year than in past Springs and am hearing the same feedback from other agents in my company.  I just checked to see if more properties are being sold this year compared to last, and wanted to share that...
From January 1st 2010 to May 26th 2010 there were 397 residential properties sold.  From January 1st this year until today, (May 26th) there have only been 317 properties sold.
The median price last year was $214,000 and this year it's $193,267.
The highest price last year for a sold was $2,150,000 and this year it's $3,250,000.
Average days on the market last year was 151 days and this year it's 163 days.
Looking for your Hudson Valley property?  The market is busy, and prices are really sweet right now!
You can look through the entire MLS on my website...
This morning, I could see from my porch a whole new day...

A MASSIVE neighborhood yard sale AND an open house?

Yep!  The Deer Run development is a really great neighborhood near my home.  They have  HUGE annual neighborhood yard sale, and it's always the best time!  Where else can you go see MANY yard sales all in walking distance from each other?  Here is the Craig's List post about it...
The Ameribag company is also having their annual warehouse sale a block away from Deer Run.  It's a really awesome sale, and always a huge hit!
Cashing in on this event, (pun intended) I am planning on hosting an open house at one of my listings that I have right in Deer Run. 
It's a great place in the perfect neighborhood...
So, come on by, say "hi" and shop!!
See what Hudson Valley living can be like when you own Hudson Valley Real Estate!

Psssssssst...wanna buy a church?

One of my fellow agents in the company has a listing I really LOVE!  It's an old church that has been restored and has so many ways it could be used, (church, restaurant, nightclub).  I have been to this church for many broker's events and I always have such a great time being there.  I have even been able to ring the church bell!  Hudson valley Real estate has so much to offer and this church is just one more diverse options for living here!

Coming to the catskills for the weekend?

If you are coming to the Hudson Valley/Catskills this summer for a weekend and decide you love it here, (like I did 20 years ago), why not buy here?  There are so many really great places with views, privacy, or in a really hip community and town.  Here is one of my properties in Hunter, NY.  It's a really sweet house with a huge backyard and your own stream at the end of the property!  The fireplace is super and perfect if you like to ski in the winter, (the house is very close to Hunter mountain ski slopes)!  Come to the Hudson will love it here!
