Killington - an island town in the center of VT

Who would have thought that a tropical storm could have created an island town in the center of VT?  I never would have believed it if I didn't see it with my own two eyes.  Killington is the newest island.  Presently, the only way in, or out of town is via helicopter.  RT 4 East is washed away from the intersection of (what used to be) River Road east past Goodro Lumber.  RT 4 West is washed away just west of the intersection of Wheelerville Road.  RT 100 North is blocked at the intersection of RT 4 due to road and bridge and washouts.  East Mountain Road is impassable heading east at the Great Eastern ski bridge.  Pictures only tell part of the story.  Stay tuned for updates.

Killington Real Estate Market shows signs of improvement

The Killington real estate market experienced the best first quarter sales since 2008!  The number of transactions is up, the average prices are up (Note: average sales price of condos is up; too few home sales to draw conclusion), and total market revenue is up. 

Twelve properties sold this quarter, up from eight sales during the same period last year and only three during the first three months of 2009.  Two of the properties that sold were homes: one for $270,000 and one for $361,000.  The remaining ten properties were condominiums ranging in size and price from a one-bedroom Mountain Green condo for $68,000 to a four-bedroom town home at Sunrise for $350,000. 

Of greater significance is the fact that last year at this time fourteen properties were under contract and on March 31st of this year, twenty properties were under contract: twelve condos, six homes and two parcels of land.  This is a good sign for the future.
