September 2020

Fall is in the air- how quickly the weather is changing and with it the beautiful foliage that we all love will be here soon. Now is a great time to take a drive through the backcountry roads to view the brilliant autumn colors around every corner. As we continue
to enjoy our beautiful state this year, stop in for a pumpkin at your favorite farm stand, head to a local orchard for apple picking and enjoy the glorious fall sunshine.
This year our fall market is very different than what we have seen in previous years. We have experienced a robust real estate market once the economy reopened in May. We see no letup in the demand for housing, mortgage rates are at historical lows. Vermont
is still viewed as a sanctuary for those seeking to relocate due to the pandemic and to our local folks who are moving for so many reasons. Did the quarantine help you realize that you need more space and you are looking for a larger home or is it too big and you want to downsize for efficiency.
Some folks who live in the city want to move to the suburbs or out to the country and some folks in the country want to move closer to the city for more convenience. Know that there is a home or property that will fit your needs and goals and we are experts at both finding it and helping you achieve success in today’s very competitive market. You need to have both experience and skill to navigate this market and we are poised and ready to help.
The number of available single-family homes in Chittenden County as of September 2nd is at 183 compared to 179 in early August. Condominiums show the reverse trend with 74 available in early August and only 61 on September 2nd an 18% decline. If you
have been thinking of selling a home, condo or investment property, now is a great time to consider putting your property on the market- call us today!
We have much to be grateful for in Vermont and we want to always help others who are in need. With the recent news about Hurricane Laura and its effect on both Louisiana and Texas there are many families who have lost basic shelter and need our help. The
fastest way to help those in need is to send money but be sure to send to a vetted fund like The Red Cross or Global Giving. In the coming days and months, help others by sharing our abundance with those in need.
I look forward to our market which is strong and healthy continuing through the near future and into next year.
Enjoy Fall!

“My real estate agent, Alison Barges, who is a Listing/Selling Partner at Nancy Jenkins was simply amazing to work with and comes highly recommended based on my experience with her right out of the gate. From the first call to the very last detail (literally the day before closing) she was there day or night via text, email or phone call and was 100% reliable and impressively responsive throughout the entire process. My being a complete novice in the area of selling a home, I couldn’t have chosen a more reliable realtor to partner with. The material she prepared in advance of our first meeting was extremely helpful and impressive including, but certainly not limited to, the research of the comps in my area for ensuring the setting of the right price. There wasn’t a single question that she didn’t have the answer to, no matter how trivial or complex. With my being someone who values the smallest of details and who asks a ton of questions, Alison was the epitome of professionalism no matter the topic or the time of day. More importantly, her knowledge of the industry and negotiation skills were clearly evident and so useful throughout the process. I cannot thank her enough for being the
right realtor for me. If you want the job done right and a realtor that will be tentative to your needs and in your corner every step of the way, not to mention getting you the best deal; Alison is the one. Give her a call today.”
