Our MLS has all the SOLD, Pending, and Active comparables you would need. Let me know if I can help in any way. Zillow may have some additional data for you but be advised that the info isn't always as accurate as what a Realtor can provide. - Dylan Taft ... more

I believe Saugerties has more homes per square mile than any other town. In even a good, fast market there are always more listings in Saugerties than anywhere else. It also covers more area than most other towns in Ulster County. Of course the inventory right now is very high everywhere and, of course, a really good time to buy, especially with the rates at their lowest ever. If you need additional help finding a property in Saugerties, I'd be happy to help. Just go to to find out some more about me.

Yes, the comps are all over the place, which has to do with the number of short sales bringing values down. But it is possible to find comps, depending on the property, that will be more accurate. It's very complicated and really has a lot to do with the specific property you are talking about.

In todays market the banks are looking for 20% down on conventional loans. FHA requires just 3.5% and a VA loan can be 0% down. I have seen some 10% down loans, but the credit must be perfect. Speak to a local loan officer and ask them what they offer. ... more

Yes, there is one called Zillow -- -- but it's not always exactly accurate. The best way to find out property values by town or area is to have an agent do a comparative market analysis for you.

Yes I believe you are correct. There are those buyers looking for bargains and of course everyone wants good value for their money - but there are buyers in our market looking for newer and especially "greener" construction as long as the home is designed well.

Hello Richard,
We've only seen a small decline in pricing in Woodstock. We seem to be somewhat insulated compared to what's going on in the rest of the country. The second home market still remains quite strong. ... more

Hi, Sydney. The values are pretty much the same as they have been for the past couple months. It seems there has been a little leveling off. I see you are from Kingston. The higher end homes are still taking longer to sell than the past 2 years, however, they are STILL selling. ... more

It doesn't cost you anything to negotiate. Depending upon how long the house is on the market and the seller's motivation, you never know. I would, however, start looking at homes more within a reasonable range to my buying point setting yourself up for disappointment. ... more
