There will be no more last-minute panic for Charlotters who get all the way home and realize they don’t have any vodka in the house—or is that just me? The Old Brick Store debuted a selection of spirits this week after they received final approval and inspection for the state of Vermont to operate as a licensed liquor outlet.
It’s the time of year when we feel renewal of energy, witness the rebirth of color through spring blooms and feel warmth in the air. Spring naturally inspires a desire to start anew, and there’s no better time to spruce up your home. There are many easy ways to refresh this season while not breaking the bank.
The pre-approval or pre-qualification process is one of the most crucial parts of purchasing a home and yet it seems to be the part many buyers are most hesitant about. What I haven’t determined is why they don’t want to see what they can be approved for but want to see houses they potentially can’t afford.

Fall and winter have been given a bad name as time for buying and selling real estate. This is something that simply doesn’t make sense to me. Fall has so many great qualities about it that are perfect for home selling.
The real estate market remains strong in Charlotte and the Greater Burlington area. Zillow estimates that homes sold more quickly in 2017 than ever before, and 2018 is on pace to beat 2017. In the period from January through May there have been 48 more homes pending and closed in Chittenden County than in the same period during 2017.
Investment properties can come in all shapes and sizes. My two favorite options are investing in a property that needs work to flip or investing in an income-producing property. Very different approaches, each with its own risks.
espite unfavorable weather for spring the real estate market is warming up with over 420 new listing in Chittenden County alone in the last 60 days—and over half of those are already under contract or closed. The homes that have closed have been selling for on average only $300 under the average asking price.
Engineers for the proposed Maplefields off Route 7, Ferry and Church Hill Roads wrote to Zoning Board Chair, Frank Tenney, saying that due to comments by the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) concerning cross-traffic turns into and out of the proposed location, they and R.L. Vallee, Inc. are withdrawing their proposal for a Maplefields Store.
When buying a house or condo buyers are typically focused on the down payment and what their mortgage payment will be when all is said and done. That payment also might include a homeowner’s or road maintenance fee. This amount can be a little alarming at first and can range in price, depending on the association and what it covers. Some people love it, and some people hate it, but with or without it you’ll have to pay for the costs either way. There are three types of home maintenance situations: day-to-day, yearly and disaster.

As one of the top listing agents for the Charlotte real estate market, a common question I hear from home owners at this time of year is “Is this is a good time to sell?” The general impression is that more houses sell in the spring, when the grass is green and flowers are in bloom.
Have you been curious about the prices of Charlotte homes compared to the rest of Chittenden County? Which towns have been selling the highest priced homes or have the quickest sales? Here’s a quick breakdown of local sales of single family homes.
Oh, the holidays. A time of family, traditions and togetherness. Or if you’re like me, a time of deep cleaning and junk-hiding to give my home the illusion of Pinterest perfection for the relatives. And while most homes will never look as tidy as they do before the in-laws pull up, there is one other time to pay such close attention to your home’s appearance—when you go to sell it.
Charlotter-owned Vermont Works Management Company LLC, in partnership with Big Path Capital, hosted the first Vermont Investors Summit on Oct. 16 at the new Lake Champlain Community Sailing Center.

Fall in Vermont is the perfect time of year for many things: apple picking, pumpkin patches and, of course, gorgeous foliage. But what about listing your home? Typically, as the leaves begin to fall so do the number of buyers searching the market. However, with current interest rates so low, you might be surprised to find many still eager and looking. And while most consider spring to be the time to list, selling your home while the cider’s hot can have its advantages too.
