When The Wind BlowsYou have to love living in the country and you have to know how to deal with snow when the wind blows.The drive between our home and town in the winter can be tricky, The wind blows across the farmers fields causing white outs even when it is not snowing. There are places along the road where the wind piles the snow in huge drifts across the road or even worse causes the road to ice over very quickly and suddenly.Thankfully the Region is aware of this and snow plows are frequently seen plowing sanding and salting the road, Several times this winter I have passed more that one going in the opposite direction as we plodded along behind the one going in our direction.During a storm they push the snow off the road and out onto the shoulder of the road. Later when there is...

The Uxbridge Real Estate Market The Year In Review - #4 in a Series Seasonal Trends. The following graphs combine 3 aspects of the housing market in Uxbridge, to show trends over a short time frame in the last year. While you will find variations from year to year there is a fairly typical trend to all three aspects in each quarter. Looking at the Last Quarter of 2012 the number of active listings were trending lower at about the same rate as sales and new listings were trending lower at a slower rate than sales. This type of market reflects a fairly stable market with the spread between active listings and buyers (who bought) remaining fairly consistent. 4th Quarter 2012 Looking at the First Quarter of this year active listings as well as sales were all trending upward at relatively th...

Uxbridge Real Estate Market Snapshot - Month End January 2014 With 16 reported sales even our "Deep Freeze" with it's sub zero temperatures and snowy weather did not dampen our buyer activity as sales were up 5 from last year and within the range of the last three years. The increase in the average sales price of 20.69% and our median sale price of 27.01% over January 2013 should give sellers a warm fuzzy feeling to counter our deep freeze. While there were 99 active listings at month end there were a large number of new homes included in the mix (something we do not normally have). The smaller amount of resale homes contributed to the rise in the average and median sale price. Median Sold Price $552,500 There were 99 properties listed at the end of the month on the National MLS® Syste...
