Schoharie County is a predominantly rural county, its southern portion is within the Catskill Mountains, the land rising steeply in both directions from the Schoharie Creek. In contrast, the northern part of the county is predominately small hills and valleys. Given the beautiful rural scenary, Schoharie attracts second home owners and retirees seduced by its beautiful scenary and reasonable costs. Compared with areas closer to New York and Albany, Schoharie County is a bargain and many affordable homes in beautiful settings are available. Even estate properties which if closer to major population center would command high prices are more reasonbly priced in Schoharie County.
Although home prices are rising there are great deals in Schoharie County. In a changing real estate market sometimes unusual opportunities arise. In addition to auction and bank owner properties which are dealt with in another section of this website, many properties are available which are extraordinarily opportunities. These properties range from luxury to affordable and in fact may be in any other category from waterfront to commercial to land.
Usually they result from some imperative on the part of the seller. In estate situations the heirs are often more interested in obtaining their share quickly then in maximizing their individual portions. In other situations property jointly owned by two individuals may come on the market as a result of the death of one party and the other may be particularly eager to sell. Or the partners may have a disagreement and want to sell the property quickly. Another scenario is where the owner suffers an economic reverse and needs to sell for economic reasons. Where a quick sale is needed the owner may be willing to sell below market value.
Great deals are also affected by the general economic climate. Where the real estate market slows, supply and demand results in a fall off in prices and opportunity for “great deals.” And some of these great deals are not our own listings. To pursue them we would have to work as your agent.
