    Do you think the warm weather in the mid atlantic states effected sales?

      Sales have been strong in spite of this year's weather anomalies. Because transactions take about 4-6 weeks to go from pending to closed, the January sales data reflect activity centered around the holiday season, during which sales activity almost always pulls back. I'll post February and March sales data in the next few days and I expect the numbers will improve again. The warm, mostly snowless winter in the northeast and the mid-atlantic states has had a negative impact on skier visits for sure, which has not been good for the ski country economy at large. Most real estate sales activity, however, is generated from buyers who already have a connection to a certain area, in our case, Killington, and not to the first-time visitors to the area. Last winter was as good as this winter was bad, so the most serious buyer prospects, returning guests, season pass holders and dedicated enthusiasts, like the ski house groups, seem to recognize this winter as an aberration. An anecdotal observation on my part is that there were many warm, rainy weekends that brought prospective buyers into the real estate offices when in a more typical year, they would have been on the slopes.

      These are the most robust sales figures in years and may signal a transition from a declining market to a stabilizing market - the perfect time to buy, especially given the low cost of money as a result of historically low interest rates.
