Buying A House in Dutchess County NY what you should know - Part 1

Dutchess County is located about 75 miles from New York City and is a second home market for many seeking a country estate or cottage.  The County is accessible by air, road, and rail; there are two Metro North lines, the Harlem line in the east and the Hudson line which runs along the Hudson River,Metro North Hudson LineHudson Line

In Dutchess County you can find a variety of homes  for sale, some dating back to the 1700's. Yes, the area has a rich historical background.  Many residents work in New York City. Therefore, some areas of the county are more densely populated because of proximity to the train and employment.    Other parts of the county have preserved lots of open space and farms and these localities are sought after by those who want to establish a private country estate.

When buying a home in Dutchess  County there will be many considerations such as:

  • Where will you be working?
  • Do you drive?
  • Do you want real privacy?
  • What are your interests?
  • Are you okay with well water and a septic system?
  • How about a shared driveway?
  • Taxes
  • schools

Other considerations have to do with the various municipalities and how they manage land use and zoning.

Dutchess County has a good amount of real estate inventory consisting of new construction, resales, as well as some foreclosures.  Here are some of the property types you will find:

  • Single Family
  • Multi-family
  • Co-op, townhouses and condos
  • Mobile homes
  • Commercial

So whether you are a first time buyer, someone looking for a foreclosure, a country estate or investment property there is something here to match your needs.

 

Over the next two weeks we will explore some of these issues.
