Times have changed.  Can you believe how far you could stretch 25 cents years ago?  Now you probably can't buy a stick of gum for that sum. The photo references the Rhinebeck Hotel which was later renamed to the Beekman Arms, the oldest continously operated Inn in the country. Looks like back when the hotel was called the Rhinebeck Hotel your horse could have a good meal or a real comfortable place to spend the night for only 25 cents. So seriously, what can you buy with 25 cents these days?

Of the 5 homes to come on the marke,t 3 were located on River Road, so named as it runs along the Hudson River.  These homes ranged from $634,000-$8,490,000. Looking at the homes with offers or in contract,  one could assume  the number of homes that will sell in the next month or so will be higher than 2.  Between the town and village of Rhinebeck there were 4 homes in contract and another 7 with offers.

In Rhinebeck School District, there were 8 homes sold and in Red Hook School District 1 home sold in June 2011. The source for this information is data provided by the Mid –Hudson Multiple Listing Service Inc (MHMLS). These figures do not represent the total real estate sales in Dutchess County. They do reflect the sales activity of the MHMLS, which comprises the largest sales volume sampling. Please note the relationship between the months on the market and the per-centage price change between the Sale Price and the List Price. The take away that I can see from the Buyer's Perspective is simply --- research now and begin to look for a home and follow the price.

Finding a place you can call home is both exciting and nerve-racking. You want to buy the most home for your dollar and you wonder what is the right offer to buy. Unless you are a seasoned investor who buys and sells without much emotional involvement, you need a devoted and competent local real estate professional to guide you through the process, which can be stressful at times. Not all real estate brokers are equal. They are independent contractors. They work very differently based on their experiences, education levels, skill levels, and even their dispositions. Find the right one for yourself  is the first step toward success. Here are some factors to consider when you interview the potential agents: Ask her/him if she/he will Provide an automatic update for the new listings based ...

Cinnamon Indian Cuisine is a restaurant in Rhinebeck specializing in Indian Cuisine.   This restaurant opened just a few weeks ago and I recently visited for the second time. ------ On my second visit I had the opportunity to speak with Shiwanthi Widyarathra one of the owners, and discovered that she relocated from Fairfield Connecticut where she was a partner in another restaurant. Shiwanthi said she is looking forward to serving fresh Southern Indian Cuisine to consumers in this region. Since I am a lover of Indian food I can truly say I welcomed her to the area.  The restaurant is tastefully decorated with a comfortable ambiance and the food is simply delicious. The Chef is Chaminda Widyarathna who has been preparing this cuisine professionally for over 10 years.  There is a wide var...

Mango Kulfi was the perfect dessert to end a lovely evening. I grew up with mangoes raining down on the roof of the house. I can still see that large mango tree. Mango happens to my favorite fruit and a very versatile one. You can make chutney, ice cream, salsa, lassi and much more from mangoes. The Mango Kulfi is actually called the Indian ice-cream very easy to make and here is a recipe on About.com you might want to try. Then you too could have a dessert to make your night.

Where can you swim if your summer rental in Rhinebeck does not have a pool?  This is the question some vacationers in Rhinebeck will face. The Town of Rhinebeck has a solution for this dilemma.  Each year the recreation department but out a recreation brochure to inform the public of the summer swim program. What will it cost to participate? There are two fee types, one for residents and another for non-residents, and there is a huge difference in cost.  For example a resident family pass for the season is $175 and for a non-resident it would be $400 The good news is, if you are renting a house in Rhinebeck and you bring a copy of the lease to Town Hall you will qualify for the resident rate.

Rhinebeck real estate market report revealed 2 sales during the month of May. 1 in the Town of Rhinebeck for $435,000 and 1 in the Village for $145,000. How did this May compare to last May? Like in Red Hook, the number of sales fell.  Last May there were 7 sales, 3 in town and 4 in the village. The truth is, if you really need to sell  it will be necessary to take a second or even third look at the price your home is listed at.  The price is determined by the present market; so if your home has been on the market and you failed to get showings or an offer,  take another look at the price. There are many homes to choose from in Rhinebeck and as a second home destination you still have time to find the perfect home in time for summer.                                                RHINEB...
