A person moving to the Hudson Valley asked residents where they should look for homes and these are the top answers.

Have you looked at real estate in the Hudson Valley lately? It's pretty crazy. Prices hot up sky high at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic and they stayed pretty consistent for about a year.

It looks as if the dust is starting to settle a little bit but home values remain to be costly. How could anyone afford to live here? It's a legitimate question to ask. Many are forced to rent until the housing market drops a little bit more.
