Speechless Sunday- Sunset and blueberries are a  few of my favorite things Earlier in the year I stood at this spot and took photographs of the sun setting at various stages.  You might be wondering how blueberries fit into this, well  if you look closely you might notice that this is a blueberry patch. The colorful booth is where you purchase a bucket, then you are given directions as to where you should do the picking.  By now I would have picked my blueberries, however between the heatwave and just being busy I have not yet had a chance to do so. Picking blueberries is a great family pastime and it is not uncommon to see 3 generations having fun together. Yes sunset and blueberries are a few of my favorite things.   Jennifer Fivelsdal - JFIVE HOMES REALTY LLC - 845-758-6842- jennifer...

  Barns are an important feature of the history of the Hudson Valley.  This  Hudson Valley Dutch Barn in Red Hook, New York is a popular photography subject; and I have had the opportunity to photograph it in several seasons. Because some of the farmland in the area was sold off, some barns have been converted for other purposes.  However due to the historical nature of many of these barns,  there are organizations dedicated to the preservation of this segment of American history.   Jennifer Fivelsdal - JFIVE HOMES REALTY LLC - 845-758-6842- jennifer@jfivehomes.com  www.jfivehomes.com  or www.midhudsonhomevalue.com   Flickr | Facebook | Linked-in |Twitter |subscribe to Blog    Copyright © by Jennifer Fivelsdal, all rights reserved-Hudson Valley Dutch Barn

Red Hook New York Real Estate Market Report for June 2010 \ The  Dutchess County market report saw a jump in the number of sales during June;  Red Hook also had an increase,going from a combined sale of 4 in the town and village to 11 in June. Homes sold in Red Hook ranged from $42,000-$470,000.  The $42,000 property was an older home that was bank owned and in need of work.  Like in the county most of the sales in Red Hook  occurred in the$100,000-$200,000 range.  The range is important because it tells you which properties are moving, therefore if your home is listed and is in a much higher range you should expect it will probably take longer for it to sell. Of the single family homes listed in in June the most activity was on Rokeby RD and Elm Street both having 2 listings each.     ...

This small trailer is a welcome site in Red Hook New York as it brings Bubby Burritos to town.  It can now be found at Hardeman Farm market which is located on 194 West Market street between Red Hook High School and Meadow Drive and just down the road from the Carriage Drive Development. Let me tell you, this place does have a following and no big surprise since the burritos they serve are big and tasty.  Here you will find parents and children sitting on the grass enjoying their meal and the view, also a place you are likely to run into a friend around lunch time. Bubby Burritos is just one of the spots that makes Red Hook a cool place to live.   Wordless Wednesday where Jennifer is never worldless :)   Jennifer Fivelsdal - JFIVE HOMES REALTY LLC - 845-758-6842- jennifer@jfivehomes.co...

Last week I posted photos of my bearded lady Irises and then, a few days later, my Japanese Irises, which are my personal favorite, started blooming.   There are still many blooms to go, and I am grateful for this; you see my mom will be in town at the end of this week and she will find these delightful. Have a great week,  and take a few moments each day to appreciate the spring colors. This can surely bring a smile to your face.

 Red Hook NY Real Estate Market Report - April 2010 In Red Hook NY during the month of April there were 6  single family homes sold ranging from $ 163,000-$459,000.  This was an improvement over the first quarter during which time period there were a total of 11 sales in 3 months.  The numbers were also better than April 2009 If you take a look at the report below you will find 2 numbers for active listings.  The report on the Mid Hudson Multiple listing Service showed 20 active listings however I saw that the most expensive listing for the month valued at $1,999,000 had 2 entries which does change the average list price and average dollar per square feet so by providing the information side by side you can see the differences. I expect the number of sales to increase now that we are no...

Red Hook Seniors Get Ready To Walk! Okay this is not a threat but a fun activity.  Recently the Red Hook recreational department adopted a walking program for Red Hook Seniors. In Red Hook we are fortunate to have a lovely park where many engage in all sorts of sporting activities.  Now seniors will have their own organized walking activity. Red Hook Seniors look at this as an opportunity to meet other seniors in the community and maybe even form new friendships while engaging in a morning walk. The Senior Walk Program is scheduled for Wednesdays at 10:00 as long as the weather is good.  The meeting place will be at the Red Hook Rec Park Pavillion

Wordless Wednesday - How do you feel about pygmy goats      Pygmy goats are such cute creatures and many have brought them into their homes as pets.  The goats are very curious animals,; the day I took this shot they were out in the field but came over as soon as they noticed me.  Pygmy goats can be very entertaining, here is a YouTube Pygmy video to prove this point       SEARCH FOR HOMES   JFIVE HOMES REALTY LLC - 845-758-6842- jennifer@jfivehomes.com  and www.jfivehomes.com     Flickr | Facebook | Linked-in |Twitter |subscribe to Blog    Copyright © by Jennifer Fivelsdal, all rights reserved-Wordless Wednesday - How do you feel about pygmy goats

The Flower and the ant sounds like a children book.  I took this shot and although I did not consider it a particularly good one what caught my eyes was the small ant.  Spring time sure brings the little creatures out and they seem to gravitate to sweet smelling flowering plants.  Why is that, I wonder?

Spring is such a wonderful time, it is nice to watch things come alive.  Today while I was out visiting clients I found these two lovely flowering trees and just could not resist taking a couple photographs. With trees like these in your front yard if your home is on the market this certainly adds to the curb appeal.   _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ SEARCH FOR HOMES JFIVE HOMES REALTY LLC - 845-758-6842- jennifer@jfivehomes.com  and www.jfivehomes.com     Flickr | Facebook | Linked-in |Twitter |suscribe to Blog    Copyright © by Jennifer Fivelsdal, all rights reserved-Wordless Wednesday-Flowering Trees
