The most vibrant center in Columbia County is the City of Hudson which in recent years has seen ever increasing real estate values. Amtrak provides direct service between Hudson and New York’s Penn Station and Albany. The areas bordering on Dutchess County including Ancram, Gallatin, Clermont and Germantown provide a rural area close to Metropolitan New York. Hillsdale, Austerlitz, Canaan and New Lebanon provide easy access to the Berkshires and Tanglewood. Chatham, Kinderhook and Stuyvesant provide easy access to the Albany Capital Region.
Although home prices are rising there are many good deals in Columbia County. Because of the lower population the demand for housing is lower resulting in lower housing prices. Also land values are lower than in Dutchess, so if you are looking for a home with land you can probably do better in Columbia.
New homes are attractive to many buyers.
They look fresh and bright and hold the possibility of avoiding problems associated with older properties. Ordinarily the contract of sale will provide a guarantee of habitability for some period of time during which the builder is obligated to repair problems resulting from poor construction. But the wise purchaser will have a detailed inspection of a new home, too, because builders can make mistakes which could be costly down the road.
New homes can range in price from thousands to millions and present some unique problems. In a strong market, many homes are built “on spec,” by builders who hope to sell them when completed. Such building has only recently begun to pick up after little new construction over the past several years. With interest rates at historic lows, there are many bargains to be had. If builders still own spec houses they will generally sell at a considerably reduced price. But older homes have also come down in price and may offer considerable savings over new construction.
