Hudson Valley Homeowners Go Solar at Home: What you need to know.

When you install a solar energy system on your property, you save money on your electricity bills and protect yourself against rising electricity rates in the future. How much you can save depends on the utility rates and solar policies in your area. Your utility bill shows you how much you spend each month on electricity. (As shown in the photo above, solar panel arrays don't have to be attached to your roof, but can be incorporated into the landscape of appropriately facing properties. The property pictured above is currently for sale at 50 Peters Terrace near Warwick, NY. Click HERE for more information about this listing.)

Solar power, like other renewable energy resources helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, because you are turning sunshine into electricity instead of burning natural gas, coal or using nuclear energy. It also results in fewer air pollutants like sulfur dioxide and airborne dust particles, which can cause health problems.

Solar panels absorb the sun' ...

Is the Hudson Valley experiencing a Buyer's or Seller's market right now?

For most home owners the current inventory numbers which affect Hudson Valley’s real estate remain a mystery. Did you know that the months of inventory reflects an estimate of the amount of time it would take to sell all of the current listings in a given area if no new listings became available? Let me help you discover how the inventory of homes on the market impacts the sale of your home.
Months of inventory determines whether it’s a seller’s market or a buyer’s market:

If there are 0-4 months of inventory, meaning that all current listings can expect to be sold within 4 months, it is considered a seller’s market because houses are selling very quickly. In a seller’s market, sellers have the advantage because demand for property exceeds supply.
If there are 5-8 months of inventory, it is considered a balanced market. Current listings aren’t selling like hotcakes, but they’re not staying on the market too long either.
If there a ...

Beryl found Dennis his dream of a log home on a mountain top in the Hudson Valley. Do you have any requests?

Dennis wanted a log home.  Nothing else would do.  That was his dream, a log home in the woods, on top of a mountain, peace and solitude, but not TOO far from New York City.  He would fish, and golf, and roam, travelling the world from his mountain-top retreat but be close enough to civilization to find a good sushi restaurant and visit his grand kids.  So Beryl Oles, our Mid-Hudson Valley Team Leader looked and looked, all over the mid-Hudson River Valley. Logs were out there, but none that checked all of Dennis’s boxes.  And, then one day, she found it.  Beryl called Dennis, and said  “Let’s go!  This is the one!”  And, yes, it checked all the boxes.  Every single one.  And on a misty, mountain morning in March, he moved in.  Wonderful!  Happy trails, Dennis!!

Do you have any special requests for your next home? Contact any of our Global Property Systems REALTORS® to find your nex ...
