Greetings from Deep Creek Lake-Hat & Glove Drive-Market Stats. Winter kickoffs here at the lake! Locals would say that last Thursday night’s light accumulation was our first official snow for the 2014 season. The Whistling Swans echo the same. They almost always arrive with the first snow and once again they didn’t disappoint. Wisp also turned on the snowguns on Saturday to blow off the dust and excite ski enthusiasts like myself!
In just a little more than a month, another year will be in the books. There’s so much to be thankful for – our health, our family, our friends, our clients, this beautiful area for which we have the privilege to call home and so much more. It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life not giving ourselves the opportunity to stop and smell the roses. My children have taught me to take it all in because it doesn’t take long before they’ll be grown up and I’ll be saying “where’d that time go”? Happy Thanksgiving from The Holcomb’s!
Our local Board of Realtors takes on several community projects each year, one of them being Helping Heat the Heads and Hands. The goal is to provide hat & glove sets to the children of Garrett County. It’s easy…buy a hat & coordinating-sized gloves and enclose in a Ziploc with the size written on the outside and drop off to a collection site by December 1st. We have a drop-off box in our Long & Foster Deep Creek Lake office located at 23789 Garrett Highway, McHenry, MD.
On the Real Estate front, the numbers for October 2014 show that demand is up and supply is down. Our Sold & Contracts/Pending Sales are up versus the same time last year and Inventory is down. It’s pretty typical to see inventory go down in the fall/winter and back up again in the spring/summer.
These 15 properties have had a price reduction in the last 30 days. And our Featured Listing is a contemporary home at Deep Creek Lake in McHenry that is in the heart of it all. The price has been reduced by $14K to $275,000. This is a lot of house for the $, complete with a garage! Please check our website for additional real estate information or email me with questions. Enjoy the upcoming holiday with your family!
