Nevers Park, South Windsor, CT   I moved to South Windsor in 1988 and was thrilled when the town set up Nevers Park Walking Trail.  Since that time I have been there many times.  It is so great to have the park close by.  In a few minutes, I can take a walk or run away from the busy roads.  It seems to be a pretty well kept secret because I find that it is usually is not very crowded.  Depending on what kind of time I have, I can choose the length of trail I want to take since there are a couple of routes to pick from.  The longest loop is about 1.5 miles and on many occasions I’ve gone around twice.          The trails are lovely.  I usually begin taking the small paved hill up Sand Hill Rd.  For dog owners,  there is a great dog park at the top of the hill, a/k/a the bark park.  Altho...

February Market Report for South Windsor CT   If I were to write my typical market report for South Windsor CT for February 2011, it would show that there were 7 closed sales with a median price of $305,000.  Comparing those numbers to February 2010 with 13 closed sales and a median price of $255,000, we would conclude that number of sales decreased but median price increased.   One of the problems with such a low number of sales is that statistics can appear to be greatly skewed.  Did the median price really increase that much or did more people just buy in the upper price ranges?  (For a more detailed discussion, read my post on Median vs. Average.)   Currently, there are four houses under contract and 24 houses under deposit.  So next month, we would expect to see a surge in the numb...

We all want our children to succeed in life. We want them to have best educations possible, then get into the best colleges, and get the best jobs. To expect that they will get it all from school curriculum is unrealistic. We, parents, can help our children to find, and develop themselves by exposing them to further activities, whether it is dance, art classes, Lego clubs, chess clubs, piano, or other instruments. As a piano teacher for the past 17 years, I have met many young children and adults who have played at the professional level (entering in to piano competitions), or just have played for "themselves," learning favorite tunes, such as "Moon River" or "Pink Panther." Why study piano? Children who study music often have higher levels of: achievement in school, goal setting, self-...

The Year in Review - Median Home Prices in South Windsor CT This year has been quite a challenge with closed sales and median prices seeming to take a roller coaster ride.  The homebuyer tax credit which expired in June provided a hump in the middle of the year, but the year ended on a strong note with 26 closed sales in December.  Let's look first at closed sales by month: Now let's take a look at median price by month: If we look at the median for the entire year, it is $274,450 (202 closed sales) compared with $276,000 (212 closed sales) in 2009.  Overall, the market in South Windsor seems relatively unchanged from the prior year.
