Square Footage Advantage - Sell a Home - CB Prime Properties

The concept of "micro-apartments" and small homes was recently thought to be a trend, especially in big cities. Most millennials enjoy a minimalist lifestyle, which has inspired many to move into tiny homes, donate their possessions, and enjoy "less stuff. But since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, our real estate agents have found out that many home shoppers are less interested in stainless steel appliances and granite countertops than they are in square footage. Buyers are looking at the actual space at the expense of condos and land. Here are some of the reasons behind the demand for large homes.

  • Millennials are Dreaming of Bigger Places to Live
    While millennials have been shown to be more eco-focused than the boomers, they still aren't that immune to wanting more space. Even environmentally conscious millennials are looking to move on up by a big margin. Given the choice, few millennials would prefer a smaller home than their current ones. This means that a typical millennial is less likely to want to downsize than a baby boomer or empty nester in the same neighborhood.

Cheeseburgers in Capital Region - CB Prime Properties

In the classic Saturday Night Live sketch, John Belushi served his "cheeburgers" with Pepsi and chips only. But no matter what you pair yours with, you can't go wrong when you order this classic from one of these Capital area restaurants. Our real estate agents share their favorite destinations for a burger with cheese. 

  • Tipsy Moose Tap & Tavern - 185 Old Loudon Rd., Latham, NY 12110
    While Tipsy Moose Tap & Tavern has the comfy ambiance of a cabin in the woods, the popular restaurant is just down the street from Latham homes for sale. The Tipsy Moose serves a casual gourmet menu that's a cut above traditional bar fare. Poutine comes in six different types, while build-your-own-mac-&-cheese includes options such as lobster, brisket, and chipotle chicken. The signature Moose Knuckle, an eight-ounce Angus beef patty topped with Swiss, American, and Cheddar, may be the ultimate cheeseburger. The Tipsy Moose is open daily, with outdoor dining, carry-out, and delivery available.

Rural Living - CB Prime Properties

Are you torn between the big-city life and a quiet home out in the country? You're not alone. Our real estate agents have had plenty of conversations with home owners who aren't sure if they would prefer the hustle and bustle of the city or the simplicity of rural life. If you're stuck debating city life versus country life, here are five ways you can tell if rural living is really right for you.

  1. Scenery vs. Nature
    Who doesn't love looking at wide open spaces, serene streams, and marvelous mountain views? Most can agree that nature is stunning to gaze at, but you must also keep in mind what else nature entails. Living in the country means having wildlife as neighbors. Critters small and large like rodents, insects, and mammals, may be in or around your home frequently. If you're not a fan of the occasional foxes in your garden or mouse in your house, you may not enjoy rural living.
