Wallingford Community Pool Opening Soon

by Harriman Real Estate on May 13, 2017

Beat the heat this summer in the Wallingford Community Pool!

The days are getting longer, the kids will be out of school soon, and the temperatures are finally getting warmer and warmer. What better way to handle those three events than by taking a cooling dip in the community pool?

Wallingford’s Community Pool will open on June 17th until August 13th and will be open from 11am to 7pm each day.

Pool passes for adults are $20, $15 for youths between 13 and 17, and $10 for children 12 and under and also for seniors 63 and older. Also, non-residents can once again get pool passes this year. A Wallingford resident must sponsor a non-resident and accompany them to purchase a pass. There will be two forms of non-resident passes: a Two Week Pass that will be dated and cost $25.00 per person, and a Season Pass that will cost $50.00 per person. (There is a $20.00 replacement fee for all lost tags. Children 15 and under are required to have an adult present with them at the pool.)

Passes are now available and can be purchased at the Wallingford Parks and Recreation Department located at 6 Fairfield Boulevard. Their office hours are currently Monday through Sunday 9am to 9:45pm; beginning in June they will close at 5pm on Saturday and be closed on Sundays. Proof of residency – driver’s license, report card or school ID – is required. If you purchased a pass last year you can take it to the Parks and Rec office and they will put a 2017 sticker on it so you don’t have to have a new picture taken!

Don’t let the summer heat and humidity get you down this year, head down to the community pool and stay cool this summer!

When: June 17- August 13

Hours: Daily, 11am to 7pm

Where: Wallingford Community Pool, No. Main St. Ext.

Wallingford Center, Inc. is sponsoring the 5th annual Wallingford Restaurant Hop on May 3rd from 4pm to 8pm. Bring the whole family and sample the specialties of some of the best eateries Wallingford has to offer (including two newcomers), enter the raffle and enjoy some good company, too! Here’s how it works: you purchase an entry “bracelet” for $25 ($12 for kids under 12) which will get you into each of the participating restaurants and allow you to sample selected items off their menu. You also receive a raffle ticket for the Grand Prize, which is a $25 gift card to each of the participating restaurants. Now that’s a LOT of food!

Everybody loves it when the carnival comes to town!

Once again, Wallingford’s Church of the Resurrection is sponsoring their annual carnival April 26th through the 29th in the parking lot adjacent to the church. The weather forecast for the four day event is mostly cloudy with a 20% chance of rain on Wednesday, partly cloudy on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with temps ranging from 67 to 77 degrees. But regardless of the weather, everyone will enjoy the fun, games, rides and great food that always accompanies this much anticipated first carnival of the season!

The venue will open nightly at 6pm and features a midway with more things to do than you can shake a stick at! Some of the fun to be had includes games of skill, chance and just plain old luck (NOTE: must be 18 years or older to play games of chance), rides for young and old including a Ferris wheel, roller coaster, and a Fun House.

Let's take a walk through the Fun House!

The first two days are themed as Italian Night on Wednesday, and Polish Night on Thursday, complete with music. Some of the ethnic treats that will be offered are:

Italian Night

  • Porchetta
  • Homestyle Cannoli

There will be plenty to satisfy your sweet tooth, too, with delights such as ice cream, carrot cake and canolli to be had. And of course, the obligatory refreshments will also be available in the form of coffee, iced tea, soda, water, beer, wine, lemonade and hot chocolate.

Last but not least, there will be raffles big and small, and plenty of games and rides for kids of all ages, with a $20 wristband for rides available each night.

Art Open House – Moran Middle School 3D Art Class

by Harriman Real Estate on December 16, 2016

Moran Middle School Art Open HouseAs you know, it is our pleasure to feature the work of local artists on our “Wallingford Inspires…” art wall throughout the year, sometimes solo artists, sometimes a group of artists. This time around we have had the pleasure of featuring the work of a very talented group of artists: the students of Mrs. Bialczak’s 3D art class at Wallingford’s Moran Middle School.

The students were assigned to design and create a building using a shallow box as a starting point, and they could make either a residence or a business. Proportions of doors and windows and the number of floors was discussed, as were the facades of each building so that was some variation from the shape of the box. Then came the paint and individual details that would set the structure apart from its neighbors. Once you see them I think you’ll agree they did a fantastic job!

As we do with all our artists, we are holding an art open house for the Moran Middle School 3D art class so everyone can come in and see their amazing creations. Read on for details…

When: Tuesday, December 20th 2016

Hours: 5:30PM to 7:00PM

Where: Harriman Real Estate LLC office, 116 Center Street, Wallingford

Who’s Invited: Everyone!

Who to contact: Pat Harriman, 203-605-3873

We hope you will join us at Harriman Real Estate, LLC to enjoy the amazing artwork Mrs. Bialczak’s 3D art class. Class members will be there to greet guests, and light refreshments will be provided. See you there!

Building Your Family’s Wealth Over the Next 5 Years

by Harriman Real Estate on December 13, 2016

Over the next five years, home prices are expected to appreciate 3.24% per year on average and to grow by 21.4% cumulatively, according to Pulsenomics’ most recent Home Price Expectation Survey.

So, what does this mean for homeowners and their equity position?

As an example, let’s assume a young couple purchases and closes on a $250,000 home in January. If we look at only the projected increase in the price of that home, how much equity will they earn over the next 5 years?

Building Your Family’s Wealth Over the Next 5 Years | Simplifying The Market

Since the experts predict that home prices will increase by 4.0% this year alone, the young homeowners will have gained over $10,000 in equity in just one year.

Over a five-year period, their equity will increase by over $43,000! This figure does not even take into account their monthly principal mortgage payments. In many cases, home equity is one of the largest portions of a family’s overall net worth.

Bottom Line

Not only is homeownership something to be proud of, but it also offers you and your family the ability to build equity you can borrow against in the future. If you are ready and willing to buy, let’s get together to find out if you are able to, today!

Home Prices: Where Will They Be in 5 Years?

by Harriman Real Estate on December 12, 2016

Home Prices: Where Will They Be in 5 Years? | Simplifying The Market

Today, many real estate conversations center on housing prices and where they may be headed. That is why we like the Home Price Expectation Survey.

Every quarter, Pulsenomics surveys a nationwide panel of over one hundred economists, real estate experts, and investment & market strategists about where they believe prices are headed over the next five years. They then average the projections of all 100+ experts into a single number.

The results of their latest survey:

Home values will appreciate by 4.0% over the course of 2017, 3.2% in 2018 and 3.0% the next three years (as shown below). That means the average annual appreciation will be 3.24% over the next 5 years.

Home Prices: Where Will They Be in 5 Years? | Simplifying The Market

The prediction for cumulative appreciation ticked up from 18.7% to 21.4% by 2021. The experts making up the most bearish quartile of the survey are projecting a cumulative appreciation of 10.2%.

Home Prices: Where Will They Be in 5 Years? | Simplifying The Market

Bottom Line

Individual opinions make headlines. We believe this survey is a fairer depiction of future values.
