"Spring" into Cheshire's Thriving Real Estate Market!

by Sally Bowman Real Estate

The first day of spring is here and there is one thing we know for sure...the spring housing market in Cheshire is looking strong! With many buyers already in the market and a large inventory of active listings compared to other markets in our area, Cheshire real estate is starting off on a high note in 2017!


Already this year, the market has been busier and more robust than years past. As we told the Cheshire Citizen for their spring home market update, “While house prices were up in 2016 from the previous year, the total number of homes sold in comparison to 2015 was down. This was a result of new construction as a contributing factor to the change. New construction home sales in Cheshire remain strong and I think that will continue to be the trend, driving up the average home sale price in town.” This spring is the perfect time for buyers in the Cheshire market to take advantage of the diversity of housing options currently available as well as low mortgage rates.


Although the large amount of new construction projects might make some sellers think selling their home will be more difficult, there are several steps you can take to make your home stand out from the competition and attract home buyers in the Cheshire market. As we’ve said before, “You never get a second chance for a first impression, and curb appeal is really crucial for buyers to fall in love with your home at first glance.” Ensure that the exterior of your home is well lit. Add a splash of color or freshen the paint on your front door to make it extra inviting. Make updates to the door fixtures and exterior lighting. Clean up around your home’s entranceway to keep it looking fresh and well maintained. Once you know that buyers will be excited to enter your home due to its beautiful exterior, it is time to prepare your home inside. Look at your home as if you are the prospective buyer to accurately assess what changes you can do to make your home most appealing. Declutter and depersonalize so it is easier for buyers to see themselves in the home. Do a thorough cleaning so every room looks its very best. Staging your home can go a long way. Consider hiring Professional Stager who will know exactly how to highlight your home’s attributes.


Whether you are looking to Buy or Sell your Cheshire home, do not delay! Take the plunge this spring. Sally Bowman Real Estate is here to help you every step of the way as you enter the Cheshire real estate market. Give us a call today or visit our website at http://www.sallybowmanrealestate.com/.  

St. Patrick's Day Celebrating in Cheshire!

by Sally Bowman Real Estate

Beannachtaí na Féile Páraic oraibh!" One of my favorite holidays is here.....St. Patrick's Day! That means time for some corned beef and cabbage, irish music, and good cheer all around. Everyone gets to be Irish on St. Patrick's Day!


Spring may be eluding us temporarily, but it’s definitely around the corner, and St. Patrick’s Day in Cheshire is our unofficial kick-off!

Everyone in Cheshire looks forward to celebrating the Luck O’ the Irish with great food, drinks and Irish music and dancing at a variety of Irish Restaurants & Pubs.

 

Falling on a Friday this year, St. Paddy’s Day will once again be a celebration for the books. Not sure where to celebrate?  Here are some of my favorite places in the Cheshire Community:

 

CJ Sparrow Pub & Eatery- Always a stop on my list!  Featuring Friday night ‘Bagpippers’ and ‘Pour your own perfect Pint’ on Saturday! Great, relaxing environment to sit back and enjoy the weekend with family and friends!

 

The Victorian House- One of my all time favorites! Join the wonderful staff for a memorable St. Paddy’s Day celebration.  Starting at 9:00 am, Friday morning with ‘Kegs and Eggs’. Traditional Irish fare will be served all day along with a great performance by the New Haven Bagpippers! Nothing beats the St. Pat’s celebration at the Vic!

 

 

Blackstone Irish Pub- Irish delicacies abound at Blackstone! Great gathering place to enjoy the finer Irish fare and exceptional drinks. Featuring Live Music by ‘After Effect’ on St. Paddy’s Day!

 

Let’s paint the town of Cheshire GREEN on Friday! 

 

HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!
