Wow – when they say March comes in like a lion I didn’t realize they were talking about the Real Estate market! Up until now I wasn’t sure which way the market here in NW Vermont would go. Nationally we were hearing that the sellers market was over, the buyers were back in control and prices were dropping. Additionally, higher interest rates had pulled buyers out of the market and things just weren’t going to be as competitive as they had been. Based on the past few years I didn’t think things would shift here quite as dramatically as we don’t have large amounts of new construction home entering the market to level out the supply. Well I’m happy to report that Vermont is going to have another great year in Real Estate! I recently listed 2 properties for sale and both went under contract within days of listing with multiple offers. In fact, one property had an ASTOUNDING 23 OFFERS! Buyers are out in market in all price ranges looking for the RIGHT property. Prepping your home, cleaning, decluttering and staging are KEY factors for getting the most offers – all things I am ready to help you accomplish! If you still trying to buy in this competitive market, don’t give up! The right property is out there but the winning offers are creative; working with an experienced agent is key to your success!
At home, I’m SO excited that Spring is COMING! We have started March out with a lot of snow considering how mild a winter we have here in Vermont. BUT – I know Spring will come and that’s what I’m planning for! For the first time ever, we are going to be starting our veggie garden from seeds. We are busy planning, gathering supplies and educating ourselves on the process. I’m also continuing to organize closets and give a few rooms mini makeovers. We are about to come true empty nesters as our last child graduates from college in May. It’s time to turn all the bedrooms into guest spaces and welcoming places for visitors. I’ll be posting updates on the redesign on Instagram so follow along – @susankaminskirealtor
Have a great MARCH everyone!
