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 this link to see recent Stratton Sales and closings.
The Stratton Foundation is selling the original chandelier's in the base lodge so I anticipate construction for the new Lodge should start soon.
Wanderlust is coming back to Stratton in mid -June. Debbie and Lisa in our Stratton Short Term Rental Department are very busy booking rentals for that time period. I know lots of owners are planning to be here to enjoy all that Wanderlust at Stratton has to offer.
The phones have been ringing with people looking for summer rentals and winter seasonals' for next year. We are seeing appointments with people looking for next year even though it is early.
There does not seem to be a large number of properties coming on the market which is a good trend and the number of available seasonal rentals is done. This should convert to people who realize that they should buy instead of rent. Property values have not come up much from the low so there are still a lot of great deals.
We are very excited about our new Web page -- www.winhallrealestate.com
