Delhi, NY (PRWEB) October 09, 2012

With the Catskill Mountains gaining national notoriety for its natural beauty, now is an excellent time for buyers to invest in the region, according to Eric Wedemeyer, president and principal broker of Coldwell Banker Timberland Properties.

“The fall foliage in the Catskills has been recently featured by weather.com, National Geographic Society, Trip Advisor as well as other sites and publications,” Wedemeyer said. “People are discovering what we have always known about our area—it is gorgeous here.”

Wedemeyer added that the Catskills offer an excellent value for those seeking vacant land. “While many areas of the country have experienced declines in value, our land values have remained very stable.” He cites purchases by the City of New York through its watershed protection program as one reason for the recent stability. “Purchases by NYC have created something of a bottom for our local market,” he said.

Recent new listings include:

  •     a fifty-acre parcel in the township of Hamden with an asking price of $159,000. This property is described on the Timberland Properties websites as “premium level and gently sloped mountain-top land with great views which could be expanded to incredible views with some additional clearing.”
  •     48 acres near Delhi are available for $99,000. Described as “totally wooded”, the parcel is located along a town maintained roadway
  •     60 acres near Hamden is listed for $159,000. With an open meadow along the road, the property includes trails to the top of the property. According to Timberland Properties website, the property is noted for its high-quality hunting.

“Generations of visitors have been coming to the Catskill Mountains to marvel at our beauty, recreate in nature, and watch the wildlife,” said Wedemeyer. “That’s our tradition and it is nice to see that our reputation is spreading.”
