Many people came to the area when the pandemic started, but that might be stopping now.

Unfortunately, right when COVID-19 hit, it completely changed our world and the way we do things. Residents who were living in the city and other heavily populated areas came in waves to the Hudson Valley looking for more space and a quieter life. We all have noticed that there are more people here, housing prices have skyrocketed, and if you're selling your home, chances are it's going to sell pretty quick. More specifically, Ulster County seemed to be the "hot spot" to go to and at one time, if you were looking to purchase a home there, it could be difficult.

Thankfully the pandemic has greatly improved and due to that, it seems like fewer people are heading to this area. According to a report from rockethomes.com, the start of 2022 and parts of 2021 saw a drop in home sales in Ulster County. Here is some specific data related to that:

Number Of Homes Sold:

  • December 2021 - 95
