noname1_400_01Clients and customers often ask me how the market is doing. They also tend to ask about where home values are at today. Compared to 5-6 years ago, I’d of course say the market is down quite a bit. The good news however is that things are definitely improving. The Ulster County real estate market, Highland NY in particular, is just one of a handful of local markets to see a surge in buyer activity. In Taft Street realty’s latest market update, we wanted to share two recently sold homes in Ulster County NY to give you a better idea of what’s selling right now and where Highland NY home values are at this spring.

14 Cambridge Court

img_0993_small_400_0114 Cambridge Court Highland NY was the quintessential townhome. This 3 BDR, 2.5 BTH, 1,800 square foot home closed on May 8th, 2013 for $190,000. Situated on a nice elevated lot with fenced in rear yard, was scooped up rather quickly this spring. It was the perfect fit for someone looking for low maintenance living just 2-3 minutes from the bridge and less than 10 minutes from the NYS Thruway. With a relatively new roof, this townhome didn’t really need anything else but some new personal touches and a fresh coat of paint!

6 Jonathan Court

noname_400_056 Jonathan Court Highland NY had a great family vibe going for it! Although just a quick 5 minutes to the bridge and shopping conveniences, this 4 BDR, 2 BTH, 2,400 square foot home also had a very quiet and peaceful setting. This home closed on May 9th, 2013 for $305,000. A town-maintained dead end road, Jonathan Court is a tiny street with some relatively larger two-story homes in great condition. Perfect for walking the dog or taking a stroll with children, the traffic is limited to those who live on the street making it safe, quiet and discreet. 6 Jonathan Court came with a serious landscape package, complete with over 30 sprinkler heads and beautiful trees and shrubs! A blacktop driveway, two-car garage, central air, wood floors, front porch, back deck, the list goes on and on! Needless to say, the buyer was extremely happy. Taft Street Realty secured this home for $10K less than the bank appraisal so we definitely scored on this one!
