Snow high above the Hudson River was what I saw today. It started with a request to show one of my Rhinebeck listings. I was about to give the okay to show when I suddenly remembered the Blizzard from earlier in the week, so I decided to go check on the property. I had a lunch date with my daughter so I had to make sure this was okay with her especially since she was doing the driving. We got to the property and I was delighted to see the driveway was plowed. Then I saw this scene which I found (23 comments)
A winter are two ago my husband and I were travelingl down this country road in Rhinebeck NY. The freshly fallen snow looked so beautiful and then we happened upon this cottage; and of course I had to pull over to take some shots, I took several so did my husband. The cottage looked like something straight out of a story book. For some reason when I look at it, all I can think of of is little Red Riding Hood on her way to grandma's house. Now that I have it framed like this I can see what a great postcard (24 comments)
These Geese were originally on the bank but went in the water as I approached
I was having breakfast in the diner next door when I noticed all these geese flying in. From that point on all I did was watch these birds. This looks like some sort of convention or better yet I found the missing Canadian Geese.
Dutchess County NY Real Estate Update November 2010 - 12/15/10 01:30 PM
Dutchess County NY Real Estate Update November 2010 The number of Dutchess County homes sold in November were 38 less than the same time last year, going from 153 to 115. On the other hand, the homes sold were more expensive as both average and median price rose. The inventory level was also up over the same time last year although down from last month. Looking at the absorption rate it looks like it would take almost 19 months to get rid of the existing inventory. With such a volume of inventory this is a good time for those in a position to (4 comments)
HYDE PARK NY MARKET REPORT FOR NOVEMBER 2010 During November, 8 Hyde Park NY homes sold ranging from $66,000-$400,000. How did this compare to the same time last year? There were 4 more Hyde Park homes sold in November 2009 At present there are 8 homes with offers and 2 in contract so it is possible that the December sales could be about the same or higher. What are some of the reasons people buy homes in Hyde Park? The Culinary Institute of America is located in Hyde Park, Marist and Vassar College are in nearby Pougkeepsie and most of the County jobs (7 comments)
I'll bet this headline grabbed your attention. What could be so priceless at Walmart? How about the view? I took this shot a couple of years ago from the Walmart parking lot in Kingston, NY. This a a photo I personally like. It reminded me so much of a lovely landscape watercolor. I could see Thomas Cole of the Hudson River School of painting sitting down and painting a watercolor of the snow-clad Catskill Mountains. So, next time you are at Walmart you might just see something priceless.

During the month of November there were 4 homes sold between the town of Rhinebeck and the village; 1 less than in November 2009. The homes sold this year ranged from $267,000-$607,500 and last year from $293.000-412,500. It was also good to see a multi-million dollar property that was on the market for over a year and a half go under contract. The movement in the million dollar properties was also noticeable in the Red Hook market. In Rhinebeck there is a wide variety of properties for sale and this is a good time to buy. Mortgage rates are still relatively low (8 comments)

I am sure as a kid you were told not to look directly at the sun and with good reason, it could damage your eyes. This advice is also true for adults. On the day I took this shot I saw the shining sun and was also captivated by the clouds, this scene was right over one of my favorite spot the Hudson River. Okay I listened to the advice, I took an aim put look the other way.

Wordless Wednesday-Something Cheery after a wet cold windy day in Red Hook NY - 12/01/10 10:38 PM
Wordless Wednesday-Something Cheery after a wet cold windy day in Red Hook NY I don't know about you but any day the sun fails to show it's face is truly a down day. Add cold wet and windy and I feel like I should go back to bed. Today was that type of a day but I had no time to let the day get me down as I had an appointment with a potential seller at 8:00 AM. So, off I went. It was wonderful getting back to the comfort of my office from which I could watch the trees sway (13 comments)
