REAL ESTATE NEWS THIS WEEK...
It will come as no surprise that Western Massachusetts headlines were dominated by the recovery of Hurricane Irene. I have located a couple of blogs that posted some optimistic news on a national level. Realty Times reported, "Real Estate Outlook Affordability Remains High" and Real Estate Today offered a look into the rental market, home affordability and how remodeling homes remains a bright spot.
Travelers coming into or through the area this holiday weekend may want to check out Mass. Vacation website, they are sharing alternate routes to get in and around the area.
For local residents and businesses, The Hilltown Families Blog created a great post with solid information. The post is filled with links and information about storm recovery, volunteerism, donating to relief funds, travel detours and more.
A great sign of recovery for the Shelburne Falls area, pictured right we see workers on the Bridge of Flowers.
As we continue to recover here in Franklin & Hampshire Counties our thoughts are with those most affected by this disaster. We hope you can take some time this weekend to enjoy your family and friends.
