Thirty-three percent of millennial homebuyers in a recent Harris Poll said their desire to own a home is partially driven by their dog.
Surprising? Not likely. Sixty-eight percent of U.S. households, or about 85 million families, own a pet.

Living in the Adirondacks means finding a balance.
While it’s important for us to work at our professions and look for ways we can better serve our clients, it’s also important to spend time with family, and enjoy this place we call home.
Many of our friends in suburban areas live where they live solely because that’s where their job is. In the Adirondacks, it’s often quite different. We live here because we love our lakes and mountains, and we are willing to sacrifice financially (and otherwise} to be here.
We can work hard, but we also need to take time to celebrate living in the Adirondacks.
It’s all about finding balance.
Is that easy?
Not for me, but I’m trying!
Lake Placid is a small village in the Adirondack Mountains that welcomes the world. For the over 3 million overnight visitors that join us every year, we are a scenic vacation destination place, and it’s easy to understand why.
Visitors come for the challenging mountain peaks to hike, and crystal clear lakes, waterfalls and gorges to swim.
A resort community, we offer music in the park, Olympic venues to tour, and an Olympic mountain to ski. There are quaint and unique Main Street stores to shop, and wonderful restaurants to dine in.
There is more to Lake Placid than being a resort. For the approximately 2800 people who live here, Lake Placid is home.
