2nd Annual CT Winter Wine Trail

by Harriman Real Estate on January 8, 2015

2nd Annual CT Winter Wine Trail

2015 CT Winter Wine TrailIf you’re like us, you enjoy a nice glass of wine. And, you’ve probably made your way around the state to many of Connecticut’s vineyards and sampled their offerings. You might even have participated in the passport program of the CT Wine Trail, trying (like us) to win that 2 week trip to Spain. Without luck. We even did all 33 Connecticut wineries in 2014, increasing our odds at winning a prize. Still nothing. Hmmm.

Well, if you haven’t heard of the Wine Trail, ​check out this post to get acquainted. It’s a great way to become familiar with the over 30 wineries and vineyards in Connecticut, sample some delicious wine and enter to win some amazing prizes as well, including that aforementioned 2 week trip to Spain! The biggest drawback, if indeed it IS a drawback, is that the program only runs from May through mid-November, when all passports must be turned in to be eligible for the drawing. After that, it was just sit back and wait for the drawing to see if you were a lucky winner. Until now, that is.

2015 CT Winter Wine TrailFor 2015, four local wineries have banded together to hold the CT Coast & Country Winter Wine Trail. Wallingford’s Gouveia Vineyards and Paradise Hills Vineyard, Chamard Vineyards, and Guilford’s Bishop’s Orchards Winery have partnered to form this mini-passport program during the winter months when most of the state’s vineyards are closed. The program started on January 5th and runs through March 29th, and all you have to do to participate is visit one of those places and pick up a passport card and have it stamped at all four wineries. Turn it in by March 29th and you could be the luck winner of one of several great prizes, including the grand prize of a 2 night stay at Water’s Edge Resort & Spa, with brunch, valued at over $750! For more info, check out their web site or Facebook page.

So, if you’re looking for something to do during all this frigid weather, venture out to one of the wineries participating in the Winter Wine Trail, get your passport card and get started! You can thank me later…​

 

Also of Interest…

If you’re in the Litchfield Hills or want to experience the wines of that region, there is also a Litchfield Winter Wine Trail, with half a dozen wineries taking part. This program also ends on March 29th. To find out more, check out this post!

Documents Required for a Mortgage Application

by Harriman Real Estate on January 2, 2015

Documents required for your mortgage applicationMost people who have bought a home will attest to the fact that the process can be stressful; finding the right home, negotiating contracts and counting the days until closing can all try the patience of the best of us. Another facet of the home buying process that is critical to get right is the mortgage application. Making sure you have all the correct documents for your loan officer can mean the difference between a smooth closing and problems that could delay or even scuttle the purchase.

While there are many different kinds of mortgages available to home buyers, each with there own set of required documents, there are some basic documents that are common to all mortgages. Our good friend and local loan originator George Souto of McCue Mortgage has put together a list of those documents for you here:

  • One month of pay stubs, or if retired or disabled:
    • Pension Award Letter & proof of receipt
    • Permanent Disability Award Letter & proof of receipt
    • Social Security Yearly Award Letter
  • W2’s or 1099’s for the past two years
  • Bank statements going back 1-3 months depending on the Loan Program (all pages)

Having these documents ready when applying for a mortgage won’t guarantee your application will be approved, but it will make it a lot easier for your lender to get the process started and get you one step closer to moving into that new home. For more information and a list of documents needed for other types of mortgages, check out George’s post here.

Christmas Tree Farms in Connecticut

by Harriman Real Estate on November 25, 2014

Thanksgiving will soon come and go, leaving in its wake the obligatory 100 pounds of leftovers, bulging waistlines, and a run on Pepto-Bismol® at the local grocery store. But the holiday season has just begun, and Christmas is fast approaching. Do you have your tree up yet?

If you like your Christmas tree alive, go cut down yor own at one of Connecticut's many Christmas tree farms!Christmas trees are a touchy subject. Many favor the convenience and cost savings offered by artificial trees, even some whose families were raised on real trees. But many purists still swear by the live fir tree in the living room, reveling in its more natural look and feel and the pine scent wafting through the air. If you’re one of the latter group, here’s some good news for you: Connecticut has a bunch of Christmas tree farms where you can go to either pick out a tree cut by them, or you can really return to nature and go out and choose and cut down your own tree.

No matter where you are, there’s probably several Christmas tree farms close by. You can click the markers on the interactive map below to get more information about the farm nearest you. Why not make it a day trip, take the kids out and let them pick out the perfect tree to set up by the fireplace? Also, check out the helpful links about Christmas trees below the map.

Happy Christmas Tree Hunting!

Wallingford Fire Displaces 22 Residents, Gift Cards Needed

by Harriman Real Estate on November 22, 2014

Fire at South Whittlesey home displaces 22 residentsYesterday was a beautiful, sunny day in Wallingford for most of us. However, for 22 of our fellow residents, the day was far from pleasant. A fire at a three family home on South Whittlesey Avenue which started just before 8AM Friday morning caused extensive damage to the third floor and the residents of all three apartments are now without a place to stay and have lost much, if not all, of their belongings.

To assist our Wallingford brothers and sisters who are affected by this tragedy, Most Holy Trinity Church and SCOW (Spanish Community of Wallingford) will host a clothing drive for the affected families, TODAY Saturday from 4-8 p.m. Donations of restaurant and retail gift cards are welcome, as well as wearable clothing for adults and children (ages elementary, middle and high school). Donations will be accepted between 4-8 p.m. Behind the church located at 84 Colony Road.

In addition, after the clothing drive has ended, Harriman Real Estate LLC will be a drop-off point for anyone who would like to make a donation of a gift card to help these people who are in so much need at this time. Our goal is to create three gift baskets like the one pictured below to donate to the displaced families If you would like to make a donation to help these families in need get back on their feet, please come by our office at 116 Center Street in Wallingford and leave your donation at the front desk. Our office hours are Monday –Friday from 9am to 6pm, and 10am to 2pm on the weekend. After business hours you may leave any gift card donations in our outside mailbox to the left of our entrance.

Gift card donation basket for victims of South Whittlesey home fireFortunately, the WFD responded very fast and they are to be commended for getting all the residents who were home at the time out of the house quickly and safely. We hope that, through the generosity of our fellow citizens, the families who have lost so much can be made whole again soon.

Thank you!

Wallingford Seasons of Celebration 2014

by Harriman Real Estate on November 17, 2014

Santa Claus is coming to town for the Seasons of Celebration event in Wallingford!Wallingford Seasons of Celebration 2014

If anyone had any doubts about whether or not the holidays have arrived, let me put them to rest. Of course, Thanksgiving will soon be here in all it’s basted, browned, bubbly glory, and the holiday craft fairs are in full swing. But another upcoming event is sure to bring out the holiday spirit in everyone: The Wallingford Seasons of Celebration.

Scheduled for December 6th from 1PM to 5:30PM, this annual event started decades ago at the downtown train station as a meet-and-greet for Santa Claus, but in recent years has moved uptown and expanded to include a variety of fun activities. The town is sponsoring most of the activities, which are free, and most will take place in or around Town Hall.

Here’s list of the happenings:

  • O little town of Wallingford...listen to your favorite Christmas carols at the Seasons of Celebration!Kids can visit with Santa & Mrs. Claus from 1PM to 4:30PM in the foyer of Town Hall
  • There will be a petting zoo for kids from 1PM to 4PM
  • The Yalesville Volunteer Fire Department will collect toys for Wallingford children from 1PM to 3PM
  • Hot cocoa. popcorn and cookies to keep you warm and toasty will be available from 1PM until they run out
  • A photo booth will be open from 2PM to 5PM, courtesy of Show Stopper Entertainment
  • Horse-drawn carriage rides will be offered in front of Town Hall from 1PM to 4PM
  • Roaming railroad train for the kids from 1:30PM to 4PM
  • The Yankee Chorus will sing Christmas carols from 2PM to 3PM
  • Rudolph with your nose so bright, will you be in our parade tonight? See him in the Seasons of Celebration event!The “Frosty Parade” will start at 5PM and will feature Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer
  • The Wallingford Chorus will sing carols at the gazebo in Fishbein Park at 5:15PM, followed by a reading of “Twas the Night Before Christmas” by Wallingford Mayor William Dickinson, Jr.
  • The Christmas tree lighting ceremony will take place at 5:30PM in front of the railroad station

This year’s Seasons of Celebration event again promises to be fun for kids of all ages and an exciting kick-off to the town’s holiday celebration. While we hope for good weather, would it be blasphemous to wish for just a little bit of snow? Regardless of the forecast, we hope for a great turnout and hope to see you there!

(Disclaimer: the schedule of events is accurate as of press time; however, they are subject to change at any time due to inclement weather or the organizer’s discretion. Please check back often for updates.)

Support our local Wallingford businesses on Small Business Saturday!Support Wallingford Businesses on Small Business Saturday 2014

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, and once the turkey and stuffing and pies are all gone everyone’s attention will turn to those two other days that signal the start of the frantic madness that is the Holiday Shopping Season: Black Friday and Cyber Monday. But sandwiched between those two hectic days there’s another, less well-known day that deserves just as much attention as its big brothers. Perhaps more.

This November 29th is Small Business Saturday®, a day to celebrate and support the local small businesses that boost the economy and invigorate neighborhoods across the country. Last year, over 100 million people came together to show local businesses how important they are to their communities, and this year should be even bigger.

In Wallingford, you can patronize a plethora of participating businesses, including Rosa’s Deli, Sweet Cioccalata, Wallingford Bowl, and Wallingford Optical. For a map that shows all the participating shops, CLICK HERE. Also, be sure to “like” the Small Business Saturday Facebook page!

Support your local Wallingford businesses on Small Business Saturday!

Harriman Real Estate LLC is proud to support Small Business Saturday, and we’re encouraging everyone to Shop Small® here in Wallingford and throughout Connecticut on November 29th.

Veterans Day Brings Free Meals for Veterans

by Harriman Real Estate on November 10, 2014

Veterans Day Brings Free Meals for VeteransTuesday, November 11th marks Veterans Day, a day we have set aside to honor all the brave men and women who have served our country in the Armed Forces. Being a veteran myself, I am proud to have served my country and give my sincere appreciation to all my brothers and sisters in arms for their service and sacrifice to this great nation.

Being a federal holiday, non-essential federal government offices are closed. No mail is delivered. All federal workers are paid for the holiday; those who are required to work on the holiday sometimes receive holiday pay for that day in addition to their wages. In addition, free meals for veterans are often offered by many local and national restaurant chains, and that custom is still observed today.

Here is a link which provides a list of over 80 different eateries that will be giving either free or discounted meal to veterans this year:

Free or Discounted Meals For Veterans

While some of these establishments do not have locations in this area, many do, including:

  • Applebee’s
  • Chili’s
  • Denny’s
  • Friendly’s
  • Olive Garden
  • On The Border
  • Outback
  • Red Lobster
  • Ruby Tuesday
  • TGI Friday’s
  • and many more!

Keep in mind, most Veterans Day appreciation offers:

  • Require proof of military service
  • Are dine-in only
  • Do not include alcohol
  • Can not be used with other coupons or discounts
  • Do not include gratuity

Also, for some restaurant chains, participating locations may vary.  Check with your local restaurant for further details. Once again, thank you to all our veterans for their unselfish service, and enjoy your day!

UPDATE: Here’s another link which gives additional restaurants offering discounts and freebies, as well as travel and retail deals for vets, plus some Veterans day events. It also shows how some companies donate a portion of their sales to veteran causes, too:
