In addition to Saratoga Springs being a physically beautiful city; low crime, great schools and a walkable vibrant downtown, make Saratoga Springs a very attractive place to live. Dan Munn , local real estate broker and appraiser from High Rock Realty understands this first hand.
“A variety of places to work, to play, and maintaining a city-in-the-country concept collaborate to make Saratoga Springs a unique place in 21st century America”, says Munn.
“Saratoga Springs has exploded,” Munn says. “Why? You have to look at the diversification of Saratoga: the tourism, the nice downtown and the places to work, the horses, the arts, and the City Center bringing in conventions. We’re not dependent on one industry. So, is this unique? Yes.”
Munn has been an appraiser in the Capital region for nearly a quarter of a century. He enhanced his resume as a real estate broker and turned High Rock Realty into a full service company, calling on the expertise of 18 to 20 combined staff members, agents and appraisers.
What is the difference between High Rock Realty and other bigger Real Estate Agencies in the area?
“We tend to look at the market a little differently,” says Munn, adding that his background as an appraiser taught him to look at a house for its worth. And it is that learned view of a property – without having a dog in the fight, he says - that uniquely qualifies him as a real estate broker. “I tell you what you need to hear. Not what you want to hear.”
Striking a healthy balance between suburbia and a downtown district, the Spa City has also helped other communities flourish. “Saratoga is a place where you’re 10 minutes away from countryside, so there’s a lot to offer.” said Munn.
“You have this vibrant city right there. And you have Wilton, which is a desirable bedroom community for families with kids,” says Munn, who lives in Wilton with his wife and four children. “There is a good supply and demand. Part of that is the lack of town taxes, [there are no property taxes in Wilton] part of its location to Saratoga Springs. You have the mall, and you have the interstate right there. There are not too many bedroom communities that are within minutes to a walkable downtown where people can enjoy themselves and still be close to home.”
