The weather has finally warmed up although it does look like the SMS mogul kids are still skiing the bumps on World Cup. As always, this time of year everything comes to a screeching halt. Restaurants close and people go on vacation. The numberof Sales and contracts at Stratton seem to be pretty similar to the previous month. Hit [...]
Nov Pendings and Sales Happy holidays - all of them!! Thanksgiving brought record snow and also record crowds. The mountain has had the largest percentage of trails open of the other Vermont mountains. Lots of people were here enjoying their homes and rentals. Our phones are still ringing for people looking for Christmas and beyond. We have had a few people looking at Stratton real estate, but traditionally this is the time when we are slow. People are getting ready for the holidays. November statistics are reflective of the seasonal slowdown where we had 11 homes pending and 6 closed, 2 condos pending and 9 closed. Again, a positive sign with 1 land closing (cheap) and 4 good pendings. I have available an October comparison of the Stratton market vs Okemo. It certainly shows a more consistent trend of the real estate market here at Stratton. I will be happy to share that with you if oyu ask.
Its not too late to buy for this ski season. Here is a great Piper Ridge at Stratton condo. It has four bedrooms and 3 bath and a brand new kitchen. There are three fireplaces and it is beautifully furnished. Piper Ridge at Stratton has a private sports center with indoor pool and large hot tub, sauna, exercise room and racket ball. Winter shuttle to Stratton. All this for $299,000.
We are looking forward to a great Christmas holiday and hope to see you.
Here are October's pending and closings for Stratton area.

The leaves are starting to turn, ski shops are busy stocking up with new merchandise, the new gondola at Stratton is being installed with the plan to take the first riders up on September 27. The real estate market is picking up! In July there were 4 pending sales, and in August there here were 24 Sales in the Stratton area. [...]
Hope everyone is enjoying the summer. We seem to bounce from hot and beautiful days to heavy rain storms and back again. For whatever reason, Stratton seems to be quiet this July. Perhaps this is due to all the construction and upgrades and people are busy enjoying golf and boating in their homes. The quiet of June is reflecting in the [...]
Flowers are blooming, grass in green and summer has truly begun here at Stratton. The Stratton Golf course is open and people are out enjoying it's 27 holes. The Drysdale Tennis School is playing outdoors on their beautiful red clay courts and offering camps for Adults and Children alike. The instructors, like Rob Menzies, come with [...]
APRIL update of Stratton Pending and Closed Sales This feels like one of the quietest springs we have had at Stratton . Perhaps it was the long cold winter and then the cold Spring we have had. I looked at last year's sales and pendings in homes and condos and there were 4 more sales in 2013 and 10 more pendings in 2013. The trend is [...]
It's hard to believe that it is almost mid-April and the temperatures are still quite cool. Stratton has very few bare spots although the season will be ending this weekend. The statistics show what we have been feeling. Everyone has been busy skiing and not taking much time to look. We have been fairly busy with people in April [...]
