When Indian Point announced its impending closure two years ago, many residents expressed concern about the local housing market. Those worries have proven unfounded, according to local realtor and Hen Hud parent Don Dwyer, who recently chatted with Superintendent Joseph Hochreiter about the “state of real estate in the Hendrick Hudson school district.”
Dwyer has met with the superintendent approximately every six months since the Indian Point closure announcement, “and I don’t want to sound like a broken record, but the data is very similar to my last report,” he said. And that is very good news for Hen Hud residents concerned about property values and sales trends.
During the interview, Dwyer cited a number of positive trends in both county and local housing markets, including low housing inventory and significantly fewer days on the market from listing to closing. He described the current, local housing market as one that favors sellers.
“It sounds like our home values are strong and that trend is increasing, especially when houses are priced right,” said Hochreiter. “That is very good news and should make residents feel great.”
Dwyer noted that “we live here because we love the area’s many great features: schools, proximity to the train, the Hudson River, beautiful parks, etc. This is such a strong community, and even thought the Indian Point situation will be a challenge, it is a challenge we can meet.”
