Back to the Country
Today’s Wall Street Journal has an article worth reading- “Green Acres is the Place to Be.” Interest in rural property is still strong, and the recession has encouraged many young professionals to look for a place to escape and retreat from hectic lives. North Country and Adirondack residents know we are lucky to live here, and in the real estate business we hear the interest in our region from buyers who want “just some land tucked in the woods with some privacy or a waterfront cottage where I can spend weekends.” Prices are still reasonable and the quality of life is terrific. In fact, Progressive Farmer magazine named several Adirondack Counties, including St. Lawrence and Franklin Counties as two of the top Northeast counties in which to raise a family. We’re within reach of major urban areas like New York City, Albany, Rochester, Syracuse, Montreal, Ottawa and Ontario.
