So, we have had a snow storm every weekend, regular 60 mph winds, astronomical high tides, and snow cover, but spring is just around the corner. The first few months of the year have been active considering the weather. Sales have been strong, but not quite as strong as the state in general, and listing volume is moderate.
Sales of single family homes are even with last year at 5 properties, while sales of condos are down from 16 sales last year to 10 this year. Below are a few that have recently sold.(copy lifted straight from MLS). These properties illustrate well the quality and diversity of properties for sale
