Quality photography can help sell Northeast Kingdom real estate.  Photos are often the first introduction to a home and with more than 95% of today’s buyers starting their real estate search online it is more important than ever to have good photos taken to show off your home’s finest features. Here in the Northeast Kingdom many of our buyers are looking for vacation homes which means they are starting their home search from elsewhere and making a list of the homes they want to see before they arrive.

When you are considering selling your home take a look at the websites of local realtors as well as their marketing materials. Do some of their photos catch your eye more than others. It is important to be drawn to the marketing materials for homes in your area as that is what you should expect from the same Northeast Kingdom REALTOR®.

Good photos can help draw buyers in just as poor photos can repel potential buyers. Contact us today for more information on selling homes in the Northeast Kingdom. Our goal is to help you sell your home in as timely a manner as possible.

Technology Great For Vacation Home Owners in Northeast Kingdom

by Susan Quatrini, Quatrini Real Estate

Technology is great for vacation home owners in the Northeast Kingdom.  It is truly amazing what you can do with your Smartphone or tablet these days and controlling multiple features in your home is but one of the highlights.  Temperature control, alarm systems, and even keyless entry can all be done with the swipe of a finger which is helping many owners of second homes in the Northeast Kingdom sleep better at night.

Systems can be installed in your home that include alarm systems, thermostat control, lighting control, and so much more.  You can set a keyless entry system to unlock your door at a certain time or provide a plumber with a code that will only work within a certain time period.  If you are coming up for a weekend in the Northeast Kingdom you can adjust the temperature of your home on your way up.  The possibilities are endless and, even better, getting more and more affordable.

While many vacation home owners have property managers there are many who do not.  If you do not have a trusted person that you can rely on then having a system in place can ease a great deal of your burden.  Click here to read “Smart Homes Are Secure Homes” from Realty Times.

Northeast Kingdom Homes to Get More Efficient

by Susan Quatrini, Quatrini Real Estate

Quatrini Real Estate

Northeast Kingdom homes are slated to get more efficient. Low income homes in the Northeast Kingdom are the target of funds which will make energy efficient improvements designed to help low income households. The grant money is through the Rural Economic Area Partnership (REAP) Program which received money from the Rural Development branch of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and its Housing Preservation Grant program.

Homes in the Northeast Kingdom can be expensive to heat in the winter months and many homes were built long before energy efficiency became a goal for builders to achieve. The advent of better insulating materials, leak-free windows, and more efficient heating systems can help today’s home owner spend far less on utility bills while living much more comfortably in extreme temperatures. Homes in Lyndonville and Newport are the target for this particular round of funding.

Contact us today to learn more about living in the Northeast Kingdom. We can help you get to know the current Northeast Kingdom real estate market and provide you with a wealth of information about the different communities that make up our area.

In the Northeast Kingdom the community wind project has just started its first turbine.

In fact the project that has just started on Lowell Mountain is expected to power more than 20,000 Northeast Kingdom homes.

Kingdom Community Wind is seen as a joint effort by the community, Green Mountain Energy, and the Vermont Electric Co-op.

Good news has been received, the well-loved Bookmobile will stay on the road in the Northeast Kingdom! Even better, Lyndonville Vermont will receive a new bookmobile to visit children throughout the area, thanks to the very kind and generous donation of a foundation that heard the bookmobile might not be able to run anymore. The bookmobile in Lyndonville brings stories to children of all ages but is most impressing on young children who when exposed can begin a lifetime love of books and reading.

Books open the doors to other worlds, knowledge, imagination, and creativity for children of all ages. The Northeast Kingdom is lucky to be able to continue the service of a bookmobile, creating opportunities for children and allowing them to share exciting experiences and explore the world. In Lyndonville Vermont we are very lucky to continue our road to exciting young minds and instilling the power of the written word!

Contact us today to learn more about living in the Northeast Kingdom. We can provide access to all Northeast Kingdom homes that are listed for sale and help you get to know the fabulous communities that exist in our neck of the woods.

Quatrini Real Estate, Northeast Kingdom

The Northeast Kingdom is in the center of the Vermont agriculture scene, a scene that is blossoming and catching attention not only in New England but across the nation as well. Recently dairy farmers in Caledonia County were recognized for providing the highest quality milk to one of the Country’s largest suppliers of organic milk. Similarly last weekend a Northeast Kingdom farm and food summit held at Jay Peak, stressing the importance that agriculture is playing in our area and how its revival is making quite an impact on our state’s economy.

Vermont has long been known for being green and focusing on a healthier lifestyle. Of course our state has great dairy, including cheese and ice cream, where companies like Ben & Jerry’s and Cabot have put Vermont on the map. Here in the Northeast Kingdom we are home to companies involved in the maple industry, dairy, and fresh food items that are aided by the creation of the Vermont Food venture Center in Hardwick. There is a strong effort put forth here in the Northeast Kingdom toward better quality food which in turn is helping our local economy.

Contact us today to learn more about what is happening in the Northeast Kingdom. We have access to all Northeast Kingdom homes that are currently listed for sale, as well as all the information you need to get to know our unique area. There is a lot going on here and we can help you keep track of it all!
