It is still imperative for a seller in New Milford, CT to understand that the market is very, very fragile. The key to selling a home in this market is to price it far better than the other competing homes in the same category. You must grab the buyers attention right from the start, not chase the market down or languish on the market because you outpriced yourself right out of the game.

The above statistics are provided courtesy of Greater Fairfield County Multiple Listing Service (CMLS). Information provided is deemed reliable, but not necessarily accurate. There may be discrepancies, as mistakes in inputing can be made, and the fact that Connecticut has more than one multiple listing service. There may be instances where a home was/is for sale in New Milford and is on the other multiple listing service. Most of the homes for sale are listed on CMLS, therefore that is where I base my statistical information. I do believe it gives a good sense of what is happening in New Milford.

Andrea, have you done a post or video on how to do your photo graphs?

Lead the market don't follow it and don't leave the price from two years ago tacked on with set in concrete, heels dug in nose bleed pricing. Having a $200,000 fudge factor, wiggle room component is wasting space on the MLS.

I too like your graphics in this report Andrea. How do you do them? Lol. Maybe you should do a post as I'm sure there are more of us who would like to know. :) Sounds as if the market is sending out all sorts of mixed messages, that's why it's so important to have a knowledgable Real Estate pro such as yourself as a guide.
