Why luxury VT real estate buying activity is picking up...

Jan 22, 2014 - We have blogged on this in the past, but it is worth revisiting:  If you are wondering if/when high-end real estate buying is going to build steam in the greater Woodstock Vermont real estate market, read on.  The most important drivers of buying activity in a primarily second-home market are wealth and confidence, and no two indices illustrate these more than the 5-year graph of the S&P500 stock index and the VIX (an index that essentially is a near-term forecast of Wall Street confidence/comfort).  A steadily rising stock market combined with a steady and low VIX combine to make a potent mix for forecasting investor confidence - and thus, high-end real estate buying.  Below are the 5-year charts as of today.  The high and rising level of high-end buying and buyer activity are no surprise: people have money and they are increasingly confident that this is "for reals".  (Update 3/2/2014 - Better than a straight path upwards is a path that includes a 5% "correction", followed by renewed confidence and upward march in the stock market, as we saw in late Jan, early Feb)
