Summer Report - Tourist Vacation Resort Area

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Adirondack Country Homes Realty

Hello Colleagues,

It's been a busy summer, and I haven't been much of a poster on Active because the tourist were "active", very.  Now that life is getting to some normalcy, I'd like to ask how did others fair in the summer tourist season; i.e. for the folks in a vacation resort community.

Upstate New York, in the Adirondack Park, was quite busy.  Busy mostly in the southern Adirondack which are closer to NYC and NJ.  However, I notice the budget was lower this year.  The gas prices didn't seem to deter buyers; but did deter visitors.  Our Internet presence strengthened; yet our walk in's were about the same in our southern offices and less in our Northern offices.

If any wishes to share their summer report, please do.  I'd like to see how NY compared with other state resort areas, and are NAR's predictions correct.

Cheers

Darleen March, Broker, Adirondack Country Homes Realty

Darleen, I don't live in a resort area, but the summer was great in Ann Arbor, sales picked up, the weather was beautiful and now I'm into football. Darn those Wolverines.
