Clifton Park, NY Real Estate News - 10/31/08 08:15 PM
The Town of Clifton Park, NY is committed to protecting it's residents and is deeply concerned with their safety.

The Capital District of New York received some very exciting news recently. AMD (Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.) made a major press release on October 7, 2008 announcing the creating of a new production company that will be building a new micro processor manufacturing facility in the Luther Forest Technology Park located in Saratoga County in upstate New York.

The Sportsplex of Halfmoon is one of the great athletic facilities in the Clifton Park, NY area that supports a wide variety of sports. Soccer is their main attraction, but they also support a flag football league and lacrosse camp in the winter months. It was built three years ago and was a great addition to the Clifton Park, NY area. My son has been playing flag football there in the off-season for the last three seasons. The program has become so successful that the dads started a flag program for us. Personally, I choose not to participate, but if you ever (0 comments)
Clifton Park, NY Senior Center - 10/16/08 08:45 PM
More accurately known as Shenendehowa Senior Citizens, Inc. This organization is located at the Clifton Commons which is known for its soccer, basketball, ice hockey, baseball, and softball fields. I think it is meaningful that this "senior" center chose to be located here. They could have gone anywhere, but decided to be among all the "youth" facilities.
They are a very active group of individuals that support a lot of community events and programs. They also support one another with numerous programs. For more information please visit their Web site at http://www.cliftonpark.org/seniors/Default.htm

My family and I spent Sunday afternoon enjoying the fall harvest in the great NE. Apple picking has become one of our favorite past-times. Our eldest daughter was home for college so all 6 of us went to Bowman Orchards http://bowmanorchards.com for some apple picking, pedal car races, apple cannon shooting, and petting the alpaca.
It is a great way to spend time with your family in the Clifton Park area. In addition to picking some great produce, they have awesome cider and donuts and we picked out a nice pumpkin for Halloween. If you are ever in the area, (1 comments)

The National Association of Realtors just announced a press release that indicates Pending Home Sales jumped 7.4% in August and is up 8.8% from last August. Obviously, buyers are taking advantage of lower home prices, higher inventory levels, and low interest rates. This is great news for Clifton Park and all of the Capital District Real Estate market. Hard hit regions like California, Florida, and Arizona contributed nicely to this new level. The Northeast saw very similar numbers as the national results. In Clifton Park, we have been very fortunate in the past two years and have seen only modest declines (1 comments)

I recently sold this Hanover Colonial in Clifton Park, NY. This beautiful home had an updated kitchen and bathrooms. It had been lovingly taken care of by parents of 6 children they had raised in the house. I had to do some soul searching while dealing with the sellers, but in talking to them, they were very happy that a young family was buying it. One of the sons said to me, "My mother will be looking down from heaven smiling, that this young family will be raised here." A very touching moment for me that caused me to reflect on my life a (2 comments)
