Real Estate in the Okemo Ludlow Area is in Demand!

While the freezing temperatures might be the talk of this week it is the warming real estate market that has local Realtors® buzzing.  Here at Vermont Properties we are seeing a dramatic increase in the number of inquiries coming into our office.   Armed with smartphone apps buyers know the inventory, price changes and days on market with a touch of the screen.

Nationally headlines talk of rising home sales and the decrease in foreclosures and short sales.  This is great news!  Here in Vermont we were slow to get hit with the downward market trend but it appears Vermont real estate is right on track to follow the upswing in the market.

When you live and sell real estate at the base of Okemo Mountain there is no denying that snow sells!   While it is still a buyer's market in most segments of our inventory base, don't overlook that there is a definite decrease in available lake homes and larger ski in/out condominiums and a noticeable increase in demand.

As a smart consumer, you've probably been watching this market closely waiting for the best price on the right property. As experienced Realtors®, we believe the time to buy is now!

Recent studies reveal that 90% of all real estate shopping begins online! The internet has changed the face of industry and how buyers shop for real estate is right up there offering huge amounts of sales data available to the general public.

Take a hint from a professional...not every website is easy, accurate or reliable. Every market is different and unless you have a good source for information you can spend precious time browsing either old inventory or unreliable sites.

www.vtprop.com is your trusted source for up to date information on the Okemo real estate market. Our new site gives you the convenience of using a reliable website backed by personal attention from a local real estate team.

To best serve today's buyers and sellers, our site has undergone a huge revision. You can now register online, set up your own search criteria and choose to receive automatic updates as new listings become available that match your criteria.

As a member of MLS our team is dedicated to educating our buyers and sellers about the market. Our cooperative agreements with all area agencies give us access to all listings and we have no problem showing you other brokers' listings along with our own.

Not all agencies and Realtors® work with the same service related philosophy as Vermont Properties & Development, which is part of what sets our sales team apart from the rest!
