Freshy fresh summer!

I am really getting into a routine this busy summer with my food hauls.  On Thursday or Friday I beat the crowd and get to Fleisher's for the weekend meat supply.  It's really such an amazing place and converted me after 16 year of being a vegetarian to now being a meat snob.  Martha even did a big episode there and the owner Josh showed her how to butcher a pig!
Saturday Kingston has one of the BEST farmer's markets in the Hudson Valley!  So much to offer on just one of the most beautiful blocks in the area...
I try to not cook so much in the kitchen and either grill everything or eat at my fave local place Riccardi's hideaway.  Great food and people watching, Riccardis can often be dinner AND a show that reminds me of The Bronx 1940s...(complete with a NY Yankees crowd)!
I've been SLAMMED this year with clients who want Hudson Valley real Estate, and it's easy to see why!  This is a great new property I have that is walking distance to the farmer's market...

This year's market vs. last years (I knew I felt busy)!

I just did a search on the MLS on single family homes that have sold from January 1st to today, (July 6th).  I checked these stats because I wanted to see if there was a reason I feel so much more busy this year.  Interesting GOOD news heading in the right direction...
Last year...
429 single family homes sold.
Highest sold price $3,250,000.
Lowest sold price $17,000.00
Median sold priced $195,000.
Average days on the market 158 days

This year...(the better news)
572 single family homes sold!
Highest sold price $2.150,000.
Lowest sold price $20,000.
Median sold price $215,000.
Average days on the market this year, 140 days!

Well, it may not be the strongest comeback, but I love the direction things are heading...
