Top 3 Picks from Montpelier Caravan

Top 3 Picks from Montpelier Caravan

By: Ray Mikus

Today's Montpelier Brokers caravan was a little shorter (fewer properties on it) than I thought it would be. But still, it was a good mix. This time, we saw homes for sale in East Montpelier and Berlin as well as in Montpelier.

Our office takes pride in strong participation in the local caravans. Six Realtors from Heney Realtors came along today as a way of gaining broader exposure to the housing market. We're still trying to figure out how some folks work out pricing using comparable sales if they haven't been inside the comparable sales.

But I suppose that's another blog post. Another perhaps more cynical blog post.

Here are my picks of the favorites from the Montpelier Caravan:

9 North College Street Montpelier Vermont  9 North College Street, Montpelier--It's hard to find a hidden neighborhood in a state capital, but that's what North College Street in Montpelier is. This house is next to the end, with large maples in the front yard, and a nice level backyard. Totally renovated mid-century split entry with great floors, lots of natural lighting, and great fixtures. This one was a crowd pleaser. Want more information?

 

 

6 Greenfield Terrace Montpelier--This one surprised me. I've been in lots of houses on Greenfield and Deerfield in the past four 6 Greenfield Terrace Montpelier Vermontyears (wow, has it been four years already!). This one has had some "work" done to it. Somewhere along the way someone opened up the kitchen into a VERY large one with an island larger than most kitchen tables. The master bedroom had been bumped out to enlarge it as well. Top to bottom renovation, and listed at $267,000. Email for information or to schedule a showing.

 

 

 

Condos at Mansfield Lane in Berlin, VT63 Mansfield Lane, Berlin Condo--My third pick was a gorgeous (and affordable) condo at Mansfield Lane in Berlin. This three bedroom townhouse has a finished walkout basement suite (perfect for a teenager or houseguests), an open first floor with cathedral ceilings, and a three-season room featuring a bank of windows and fir floors. Attached one car garage, and incredibly energy efficient. Send an email for more information.

 

 

 

All the brokers and agents who came today got a good look at some great Montpelier homes for sale. Remember that you can look at a property with any Realtor you want, so make sure you want to work with someone who wants to see all the comps.  Come on, I couldn't resist.

      Top 3 Picks from Barre Caravan of Homes for Sale

      By Ray Mikus

      The Barre Brokers Caravan was on Tuesday, and there was a full docket of houses.  Sixteen, to be exact. Then, of course, Charlie Clark and I added one more--a new listing that he has on Richardson Road.

      But I digress.

      The sixteen houses in Barre (City and Town) comprised a wide range, everything from reconditioned 1900s houses with classic woodwork to a high-end log home with dynamite views and an elevator for $725,000.

      My picks as the favorites, or maybe as the properties that got the most interest from the Realtors who came through are the following:

       

      5 College Street Barre Vermont5 College Street--this early century house has gorgeous woodwork, great built-ins, and two levels of deck/balcony. Not the sort of thing you see everyday in Barre, and certainly not for $140,000. Big rooms, lots of space, and a butler's pantry. Cute little backyard too. Jane may have hit the nail on the head when she said, "I could live here." Email for more information.

       

       

       

       

      14 Sheridan Street--similar house, rich with woodwork, and a screened back porch overlooking the 14 Sheridan Street Barre Vermont backyard. The owners are putting some finishing touches on the place, including some paint/paper/plaster work.  Let me know if you'd like more information.

       

       

       

       

       

       

      264 Middle Road Barre Vermont264 Middle Road--From the road, it's hard to get a gauge on this one. And the property isn't quite as big as I thought at first--it's more in the backyard than the front yard.  But the house has been freshly painted, has good-sized rooms, a great full, walkout basement, and a three car  garage. Not bad for just under $200,000. Don't just drive by this one--email to schedule a showing.

      Honestly, there were some great properties on the caravan, and it's always a nice opportunity to network with agents and brokers from other agencies. I'm not totally sure why all the local agencies don't put their listings on the caravan, and I'm not sure why some Realtors don't come on caravan. But you know, it's Vermont, so I'm not going to judge.

      For more info on these or any of the other homes for sale in Barre City of homes for sale in Barre Town, just call or email.
