June 2013 Real Estate Market New Milford CT, Sales are UP!

Home sales are UP in New Milford, CT!

We are seeing an improving real estate market in New Milford. Single family home sales for the month of June 2013 reached 30, which is the highest it has been for a long, long time. (June 2010 had 31 sales). According to the absorption rate we are still in a buyers market, but that number is sliding down. The tide could turn very quickly in the next few months to a sellers market. Buyers should take advantage of this while they can!

It is still a buyers market.
