real estate: Dutchess County 2014 Annual Real Estate Market Report - 02/12/15 11:15 PM
Our local Dutchess County Real Estate Market Update
The 2014 Dutchess County housing market ended with 1845 closed sales, 4574 new listings and just over 2000 properties in contract.  The real estate market seemed frozen along with the frigid temperatures and took quite a bit of time to truly heat up in 2014 – but once it thawed out homes started to sell.  Overall, considering the sleepy winter and spring markets, we held our own and the prices remained stable.
