Good news for greater Burlingon area!

On Wednesday, the U.S. Department of Labor released its latest figures, and the Burlington/South Burlington unemployment rate was among the lowest in New England! The unemployment rate as of March 2010 improved almost a full percent from that of March 2009 (currently 6%, as opposed to 6.9% last March)! To read the entire story from The Burlington Free Press, please click here.

Of course, this is great news for current homeowners because as the employment rate improves, so too does the housing market! If you are in the market for a home, you can check out all of the newest listings just by visiting

Before you schedule your move, check this out:

LOTS of Buyers and Sellers are making the move within the next couple months, so I thought I would pass along this article on the 10 Biggest Moving Mistakes that I found on Better Homes & There is so much work (and stress) involved in is easy to overlook details such as how to transport plants, getting mover's insurance, and making an inventory list (just to name a few)!

Don't forget: late June and early July are going to be incredibly busy with people moving (especially given the homebuyer tax credit deadline of June 30th). If you are planning on moving in that timeframe BE SURE TO BOOK YOUR MOVERS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! If you need recommendations for movers (or any home service providers), you can always visit the (newly revamped!) Hickok & Boardman website and click on the Maintaining Your Home tab for some excellent suggestions!

I hope you find this article helpful! If you are looking to move soon...but still haven't found your next home, please feel free to call or e-mail me today and I will get your search started!

Just to reiterate:

I've been saying this for months- but it never hurts to reinforce the message: Now is a fantastic time to buy! I saw this article today- 4 Great Real Estate Deals that Won't Last- on Yahoo Real Estate, and thought I would pass it along, as it really drives home my point! If you have been on the fence about potentially purchasing a home...don't wait around any longer! There are only 26 days left to get under contract in order to be eligible for the current tax credit, interest rates remain incredibly low, and there is a fantastic inventory of homes out there (one of which could be waiting for you)!

If you would like to start your home search today, please feel free to call or e-mail me at (802)846-9530 or
