Christmas is coming to Stratton

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.

November Stratton Real Estate Update

Here are October's pending and closings for Stratton area.

http://www.nnerenmls.com/nne/maildoc/cet345_1415805544-Nov-12-2014-10_19_04am.html We had once of the most beautiful Fall's and enjoyed very warm weather. The Stratton market activity has stayed fairly consistent with 22 properties under contract - as always some of these pendings may travel from month to month with 24 homes and condo's closed. You notice there was a mega sale of an estate for $4,350,000 which started at $7,900,000. as well as several other good sales. This month we are still getting calls of people looking at the last minute to purchase and or rent here at Stratton.  Our seasonal rental market has been very strong and we have very little left for this winter.   Our C Short Term department is getting very busy with calls to book winter Stratton vacation rentals.  The strength of the rental market should bode well for future sales. Stratton has invested $7 million in new gondola cabins, 350 new HKD snowguns, 2 new snowcats and  new glades  for skiing & boarding this year.

Its not too late to purchase a home or condo at Stratton this winter.  The writer put a co-op apartment under contract in early November and it will close next week.

Whats up at Stratton!

Things are happening at Stratton.    The Stratton corporation is investing 7 million dollars mostly in skier amenities!    The new gondola cars are arriving and the lift is getting ready for its new cars!   Yea -- Can't wait to be able to sit down on a nice comfortable seat!  instead of stretching to sit and it will be an eight minute ride.     Stratton has also spent $1.2 on 350 new high efficiency snow guns so skiing will be great.   Stratton is also constructing 3 new glades for skiing fun, two blue and one challenging!

We are busy with lots of people looking for Stratton winter rentals and we seem to have less this year than in previous years.    There are a number of great properties for sale both on Stratton and in Strattonwald with bus service.   Now is a good time to buy.

 

April Update of Stratton Real Estate Market.

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 checking out from their rentals and trying to make plans for next winter.   Some are looking to buy and some to rent and rerent their present homes.   Our office has been quite busy and has participated in a number of the attached pendings and sales.   Prices have still not started to rise.   A number of Sellers have reduced prices to attract present buyers and these reductions have proven positive.

Here are the pending listings and sales in the last month.

There is activity in some land sales which is a positive indicator that people are not just grabbing the best buys - although the 2 $50, 000 lot sales were also the same $90,000 property.

After the great ski season, we are quite optimistic for the health of real estate here in the Stratton area.  Now is a great time to buy.

Family Skiing At Stratton

Stratton has been known as a great family ski area and it seems to only be getting better.    My children went through  little Cub through racing and freestyle and did some coaching.   Now my 3 year old granddaughter went to Mini Cub skismall1this past weekend.     The arrival was seamless as she was taken into the mysteries of mini cub.   We didn't have to rent - skis, boots and a helmet and  were all provided.   By the end of the first day, she was on the little black magic carpet.  Day two she went back in and had a great lesson with Vaughn Willis  and did  two runs off the big yellow caterpillar. web skiing

Gone are the days of kids have to side step up to learn to wedge - Now it it pizza, french fries and stop the bugs.   She had such a great time and can't wait to come back for more.   Both parents were just as proud.    As you go through the various programs  as Maddox  - 9 years old  here - the kids can move into a junior racing or Freestyle Program.   At the year end awards there were over  275 kids in the racing seasonal programs.   If racing is not your child's thing there is a great  snow board school.   See Macy shreading the slopes.

Christmas/NewYear's at Stratton

What is itsmall   What is it?    Is it an Under sea monster or something from outer space?   No it is an old large hydrangea bush with Christmas lights in the middle of the 6 inch snow storm we had at Stratton on December 30.  Skiing has been very good but crowded due to high winds that have closed some of the lifts the lines have been quite long.    All in all it has been a great holiday that still has almost another 7 days to go.    Our short term rental department has been very busy with people looking to book a New Years weekend and looking to book additional times trough out the winter,   We have several properties for sale that could be occupied for the rest of the winter and a number of great shorter term Stratton rentals.   I am looking forward to skiing Stratton as the holiday winds down.    They are predicting a New Years storm of up to a foot of snow so we are all very excited.      My favorite property now is exteriorthis house with 4 bedrooms, family room , and two additional rooms and it is located off the Stratton Access Road.   $450,000.  Give us a call for information on Stratton rentals or Stratton Real Estate for sale.

Spring at Stratton Mountain

Spring is almost here but you cannot tell by the snow here at Stratton.   We have received more than a foot of snow in the last week and it is flurrying as I write this. The skiing at Stratton and Bromley has been phenomenal with soft  fresh snow.  Lot of fresh tracks have been had and everyone has a story about their great Stratt and Bromley ski days

The real estate market is experiencing a flurry as well.    We have all been very busy with real estate showings and there are offers being made and accepted.   There are some exceptional oportunities  close to the trails. dining living fp One is a nicely updated two bedroom and loft,   1/2 bath Slopeside condo in the "E" section.    This unit offers a quiet location with true ski on and off location.   $399,000.    We have several buyers who are purchasing for cash and are closing in mid march with the plan of having a month of great spring skiing.    There are some great buys in Stratton real estate and people are already asking about Stratton rentals for next season.    Now is a great to look for a vacation home here at Stratton.

I sold a home to a family from New Jersey who planned to rent their home on the holidays and use it somewhat sporadically.   They put their children in Stratton Summer Tennis Camp and a camp at the Mountain School during the summer.   The 3 children are all in the Stratton winter Ski camps and loving it.   They did NOT rent their home but have come every weekend.   The dad told me that it brought him such pleasure to see his children having so much fun and skiing with him at the end of the day.      This is what owning at Stratton is all about.

Stratton has a lot of fun family activities for the next weekends - do come up and see what it is all about.
