8 Fun Winter Activities to do in VT That Aren't Skiing

Vermont is certainly known as a skier and rider’s paradise during the winter months, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t more to enjoy in Vermont from November to March! Below you will find 8 fun things to try in Vermont this winter — that don’t have anything to do with skiing or snowboarding. 

Sledding

Two Teen Girls SleddingSledding isn’t just for kids these days! There are several sled makers in Vermont that make adult size steerable sleds. Check out Granville Gulf, between Warren and Granville. Locals recommend exploring this winding stretch of Route 100 just south of Warren. Helmets are advised. Lincoln Gap in Warren is also a popular spot. Lincoln Gap is recommended for experienced sledders. After a 30 minute hike to the top, prepare for an exhilarating 2 mile ride back down! Again, helmets are advised. There are also plenty of public sledding hills that more suitable for younger children. 

Snowmobiling

The state of Vermont is home to over 4,700 miles of snowmobile trails. All of which have been maintained and groomed by the Vermont Association of Snow Travelers for nearly 50 years. Most VAST trails run on private land, and are only open during the winter, giving you a truly unique perspective of Vermont. Don’t own your own snowmobile? Head to Stowe and take a tour. Snowmobile Vermont offers a two hour, 25-mile backcountry tour through Mount Mansfield State Forest. They also provide boots and helmets for the ride. 

Hit the Spa

Looking to warm up and forget that it’s five below outside? Why not sit inside and be pampered all day. Vermont has dozens of inn and resorts that feature full-service spas

Ice FishingIce Fishing Huts on the Lake

Find out for yourself why Vermonters love ice fishing. Check out the Free Ice Fishing Day Festival the last Saturday of January! Free Ice Fishing Day is an opportunity for anyone to go ice fishing without a permit (resident or non-resident). Registration opens at 11 am at Hoyts Landing in Springfield, VT. Fish and Wildlife staff and Let’s Go Fishing volunteers will have ice fishing equipment available for those who don’t have their own. Staff and volunteers will also be available to help the inexperienced learn ice fishing basics. 

Dog Sledding Tours

Dog sledding isn’t just for Alaskans! January and February are ideal months to enjoy dog sledding. Vermont is home to many dog sledding teams, several of which offer tours. Not only can you take a tour through the mountains, several tours include an educational piece that will teach you mushing basics. 

Track a Moose

Take a hike through one of the many state forests, or sign up to take a guided track with an expert! Join field naturalist Sophie Mazowita the last Sunday in January for a full-day of wildlife tracking in Huntington, VT. The adventure begins with an indoor presentation. 

See Where it’s MadeBrewery Equipment

From maple syrup to teddy bears, there are lots of great things made in Vermont. Take a behind the scenes look at some of Vermont’s largest companies. Take a brew tour at one of the many breweries all over Vermont, why not see how some of the most notable brands brew their beers?! You should note that not all breweries offer tours, so it’s a good idea to check ahead of arriving. There are also several companies in the state that offer organized tours. Or check out a sugarhouse in late winter to see how maple syrup gets made! Or how about checking out the Ben & Jerry’s Factory? From furniture to cheese, there's a tour for everyone in the family. 

See a Play, Musical, Stand-up Event and More

Vermont has always had a strong arts community. Check out the Lost Nation Theater in Montpelier to see community theater at it’s finest. Positive Pie in Montpelier serves up live music weekly. There is always something going on at Higher Ground in Burlington and the Rusty Nail in Stowe. Check out the Vermont Calendar of Events for more information about what’s currently happening throughout the state.

 

The Numbers are in! Check Out What Real Estate Looked Like in 2014.

2014 END OF YEAR REPORT

2014 was a year of growth and improvement for real estate throughout Washington County. The key indicators that we looked at are the number of sales of single family residences, average sale price, and number of days a property was on the market.

The number of transactions increased in nearly every major community as compared with the number of sales in 2013. 2014 posted the highest number of sales for any year in the last five years.

AVERAGE SALE PRICE BY TOWN

Average sale price is perhaps the most talked about unit of comparison. All of the communities in Washington and Orange County are "small" towns. In any given year several exceedingly low foreclosure or distress sales can adversely influence the average significantly. Conversely a few very high sales can pull the average up. In 2014 interest rates remained deliciously low and fuel prices declined dramatically at the end of the year. Both factors contributed to improve affordability for homeownership. With this, more first time homeowners appeared on the scene. These new buyers contributed to an increased number of sales.

AVERAGE DAYS ON MARKET (D.O.M)

Another number that presents a mixed picture of the market is the days on the market. That number is the number of days from when a property goes on the market to when it goes under contract. The escrow period (between accepted offer and closing) is not part of the calculation. This number should also be taken with a grain of salt for two additional reasons.

First, some of the area sales were indicated by homeowners, and then were listed and sold with a Broker. The days on market calculation considers only the time a property was listed by the Realtor ultimately representing the property at the time of sale. Second, some of these properties may have been on and off the market over time.  Even considering these factors, this data has been compiled in a constant manner for years and do provide a valuable insight into the turnover rate in the market. As you will see below homes typically did sell much more quickly in 2014.

2013 - A Year of Growth for Central Vermont Real Estate

How is the Central Vermont real estate market?

This is a frequently asked question and a good one too;  the health of the housing market is an economic indicator that impacts buyers, sellers, and everyone in between.

We took a look at some key indicators of  real estate in Central Vermont for 2013 using data compiled from some major sources and compared these 2013 indicators to the previous four years. One major source we utilized is the multiple listing service (MLS), where the majority of Vermont real estate sales transacted by licensed brokers are recorded. In addition to MLS, we utilized the Vermont real estate sales online database which gathers information from the Vermont Department of Taxes to create a comprehensive list of all real estate sales that may or may not be recorded in the MLS. From the statistics gathered, it is exciting to report that growth and improvement summarize Central Vermont real estate market in 2013.

The key indicators that we looked at are the number of sales of single family residences, average sale price, and number of days a property was on the market. The towns focused on while looking at these indicators are:  MontpelierBarre, U32 (BerlinCalaisEast MontpelierMiddlesex and Worcester), and Northfield

The information presented below will specifically be about the number of sales of single family residences in Washington County, categorized by town.

In 2013 home sales increased in every major community as compared with the number of home sales in 2012. 2013 also produced the highest number of Central Vermont Real Estate home sales for any year in the last five years.

                                                                                                     Graph

As you will note above, Barre Town posted a strong increase year after year and the U-32 towns  posted an amazing 88% jump after four years of consistent numbers. Waterbury posted around 57 residential sales.

Numbers don't lie. Considering the overall increase of number of sales in 2013 and the kickoff of activity we've experienced in the new year, we expect 2014 to be another year of steady growth for Central Vermont real estate.

Just Getting Started? Wondering How Buying a Home With a Real Estate Agent Works?

getting started

Congratulations if you have just made the decision to pursue purchasing your next home. There is a great amount of information available and home buyers are better educated about the real estate market than ever before. However, more information generates more questions. Many people looking to find out about homes that are available for sale search the web and check major real estate websites to start. Some simply search "homes for sale in the area they wish to focus on". Most major real estate sites such as Realtor.com, Zillow and Trulia download information from Realtor operated MLS (Multiple Listing Service) websites. We recommend that you go right to the source and utilize either our MLS site which is NNEREN.com or if you go to a brokerage website like our own, www.HeneyRealtors.com you will see our listing and a direct link into the NNEREN site. This will give you access to the most current information about most homes in Montpelier, Barre, Waterbury and surrounding communities in Washington and Orange Counties.

Now that you have current information about homes you wish to see, many people out in the hunt for their new home seem to call whichever sales person who has each property that they wish to see. In the end, these potential purchasers seem to bounce between a number of different real estate agents. Using this approach it is likely that none of these agents is working for the purchaser.

We think that the best way for you as a potential purchaser to approach this project is to meet with several licensed real estate salespeople or brokers who are active in the area where you wish to live. Then select an agent as the person that you trust to become educated with your list of "wants" and "needs" as well as your personal financial situation. This person will be in the best position to assist you to find and then purchase the home that you are dreaming of.

Once you select a Realtor to assist you, you will want discuss about how this relationship will work. You have choices about how you structure your business relationship with your Buyer Agent and you should discuss these options as you begin. Please give us a call to talk this over.

Should I do a Radon Test?

Before you make a decision it helps to know a little bit about it:

  • What is radon?

Radon is a gas produced by the naturally occurring breakdown of uranium in rocks.  It is not something that you can see, smell or taste.  According to the Vermont Department of Health it is a class A carcinogen and a leading cause of lung cancer.

  • How does radon get into a home?

Radon comes up from the ground.  Houses act as a partial vacuum pulling gas from the soil.  It can get into a home through dirt floors, cracks in a finished floor, gaps around service pipes, cracks in foundation walls.

  • Are some Central Vermont homes more likely than others to have radon?

According to the Vermont Department of Health, a "radon problem cannot be predicted by a home's style, age, or location".

  • How much radon is okay?

In Vermont it is recommended that radon be mitigated when levels in the air are equal to or greater than 4.0 pCi/L (picoCuries/Liter).

  • How do you test for radon?

There are free kits available from the Vermont Department of Health that takes as little as 91 days and as long as one year to produce results.  Visit their website to order one- http://healthvermont.gov/enviro/rad/radon.aspx   The state will also provide a 2-7 day test for $25.00, which can be ordered from their website.

Most Central Vermont Home inspectors offer radon tests as part of their service.  Prices vary.  Give us a call if you would like a resources list of home inspectors.

  • How do you mitigate elevated levels of radon?

Typically there is a pvc pipe installed from the basement through the roof with a fan to expel the gas.  Whoever installs the system should be able to hide the pipe wherever possible through closets or on the outside of the house.  The Vermont Department of Health has a list of contractors approved for radon mitigation on their website.

Is Radon common in Vermont?

What is Radon and should I be worried about the levels in my house?

      Central Vermont Events in August

      Events in Central Vermont

      Click to enlarge the calendar of events for Central and Northern Vermont

      At Heney, we care about more than real estate. Here's a handy calendar filled with all of the events going on in Central and Northern Vermont this August.

       

      What typically conveys in a Central Vermont Real Estate Deal?

       

      what conveys with vt real estate?

      Does the seller typically shoulder the fridge on the way out the door?

      A question that often comes up in a Vermont home sale is, "what's staying and what's going?".

      One answer is that everything is negotiable.  Sometimes the seller will throw in the pool table, put a price on the jungle gym, include the John Deer.  Other times the seller is so attached to that front loading Whirlpool that they leave an empty closet with hookups dangling from where the washer and dryer used to be.

      Another answer is that there is an industry standard of things that are typically included in the sale, or "convey".  This is one area where working with a Realtor comes in handy.  When you're negotiating it's useful to know how things typically play out.  As a seller you don't want the deal to fall through over an $800 refrigerator (it happens) only to learn afterwards that it's normal to leave the fridge behind.

      No matter what conveys with the house and what doesn't, you want to make sure that it's all in the contract before closing!

      Items that most commonly convey with a Central Vermont Real Estate sale:

      1. Stove
      2. Refrigerator
      3. Dishwasher
      4. Washing Machine
      5. Dryer
      6. Built in microwave

      How do I prepare my Central Vermont Home for a sale?

       

      When someone contacts Heney Realtors to sell their Central Vermont Home there is a question that typically comes up.  "What can I do to prepare my home for sale?"  The answer varies depending on the seller's budget and time frame.

      No matter what, when selling a house, you want to keep everything, clean, neat and organized.  Minimize clutter to make the rooms look bigger and brighter.

      Gorgeous Colonial Barre Home This kitchen has been completely redone with new appliances, tile splash guard and refinished floors.

      This kitchen has been completely redone with new appliances, tile splash guard and refinished floors.

      Keep the lawn mowed, hedges trimmed and power wash the siding.  Of course, if you're putting your Central Vermont home on the market in February or March in anticipation of the market heating up with Spring, the lawn mower won't do you much good.  In that case keep the entrances to the house shoveled and sanded so buyers can get in and out safely.

      If you are able to put some money into the house to prepare for a sale you have to decide where to start and how far to go. One thought is that you get the most bang for your buck from updating kitchens and bathrooms.  If that's the route you want to go, be careful not to over improve.  Your house should sell faster and hopefully for more money with updated kitchen and bath, but you may not get out what you put in if you're covering all the surfaces in marble and installing copper sinks with brass hardware.

      Gorgeous Colonial Barre Home These sellers have done everything to prepare their Central Vermont Home for a sale. The fresh paint and redone floors make the house "pop"in the buyer's eyes.

      These sellers have done everything to prepare their Central Vermont Home for a sale. The fresh paint and redone floors make the house "pop"in the buyer's eyes.

      A fresh paint job does wonders to give everything a nice, clean look.  If you are going to paint, pick neutral colors.  The idea here is that mild colors please the largest number of people.  You may have let your teenager paint the room black, or toddler sponge paint any color they wanted, but you never know who will end up buying your home.

      Another thing that really makes a room "pop" in the eyes of a buyer is refinished floors.  Today, hardwood floors are in.  Old carpet? Tear it up, sand and finish. If your floors are in pretty good shape mopping and waxing can go a long way to make them sparkle.  For a lot of sellers these updates aren't an option financially.  Don't worry, that's where your buyers will see potential.

      Wondering what your house is worth?  Want to know how to get the most out of a sale?  Give us a call and we'll come take a look!

      September Real Estate Market Report for Barre, Montpelier, U32, and Northfield

      And comparing to last year:

      Northfield 5 2 4 1 25 19
      Totals 53 49 35 20 283 256

      Discussion:  Even if it's been awhile since your last math class, and even if you've never had an economics class, this is going to make sense: Compared to last year, there were fewer new listings, and more sales in the Central Vermont market. That adds up to a reduction in inventory and a very clear sign that the market is shifting toward normalization. And, perhaps even toward a sellers' market. There, I said it.

      On the rolling twelve month cycle, four of the five distinct markets saw an uptick in the number of sale. U32 was the only market that experienced a slight dip.

      Looking at August's sales, it's interesting to note that the average sale price in Montpelier was very close to the average sale price in Barre Town. And, taking away the $742,500 sale in Northfield (a bit of an outlier), Barre Town and Montpelier were the markets with the highest sale prices.

      VA and RD Loans: These loans can be very attractive to lots of buyers. VA (Veterans' Administration) loans are available only to those who have served in the military. RD (Rural Development) loans are available to everyone, and allow for up to 100% financing backed by the USDA.  Check with your favorite lender, or contact Heney Realtors with questions.

      But there's a big catch. Both of these loan programs require the property to meet certain standards. The loan products tend to work better on newer homes and those in better condition. Things like cracked or peeling paint, ungrounded electrical outlets, and lack of handrails can prevent a property from qualifying.

      Which means that if you're using RD or VA, you need to be very careful about the details of the houses you're looking at. If you're a seller, and an offer comes in with a buyer using one of these loans, know that there may be some additional repairs or improvements needed to bring transaction to closing. Who has to pay for them? That's all negotiable.

      Lease-Purchase Options: I get a lot of questions about these (also known as "rent to own"). They can work in some circumstances, but they need to be structured correctly. They also depend on unique circumstances for both the buyer and seller. The seller needs to be comfortable as a landlord. Also, the seller must not need the money from the sale to move on to the next house (because the money won't be there until the sale, sometime in the future).

      The buyer needs to be very confident that a purchase will be in the foreseeable future (6-12 months, generally, but it's all negotiable). Buyer must have a substantial non-refundable deposit for the "option". 5-10% of the purchase price wouldn't be uncommon. And the buyer must be able to remedy the reason they can't buy right now. For example, if it's a question of credit needing to be improved, the buyer better be reasonably sure that credit can be improved in the lease-purchase timeframe.

      Oh, and for the love of all that's holy, get an attorney to draw up the documents.

      Quote of the month:  "It had all that great original character, and then no one screwed it up." That was Jane after previewing a meticulously cared for 1920s Montpelier craftsman house. I think she meant that there was nothing to undo.

      Getting Smarter: Did you know that you can become even more of a real estate expert than you already are? Like Heney Realtors on Facebook, and learn about hot new listings, get interesting "market slices", and win karma points with our contests. I realize that karma can only be apportioned by the forces of the cosmos, but I can pretend, right?

      Looking for Something New? Heney Realtors is actively looking for Realtors, licensed assistants (or those willing to become licensed), and administrative assistants. Business is good now, and looking to expand in the near future.  Honestly, we need more good people to allow us to serve the growing number of buyers and sellers we're seeing. Experiences are helpful, but not necessary. We can train the right people. Call or email for more information.
