New Milford CT 06776 real estate market report through October 2016

New Milford CT real estate market reportThe New Milford CT real estate market report shows we are still slipping down on sales. This year we did hit a record high since before the market crashed, June 2016 reported 51 home sales, which caused the absorption rate (AB rate) to drop to a seller's advantage. However that was short lived as sales continue to drop and the AB rate continues to rise since then. 

And now we are facing a bit of an inventory shortage, only 2 other months reported lower, and not by much, in the past 12 months. Currently there are 203 single family homes for sale. Although that sounds like quite a bit, it is a noticeable drop and buyers are finding it harder to find what they want. It is a confusing market at best. This is good news for the seller who has a home that is priced correctly and ready to go.

The average days on market are also not consistent. In order to keep yours from sitting for too long, price it right, clean it up, make it available and make sure buyers know it is there! I have included November in the chart below to show you that things have no rhyme or reason. On the whole, these days on market are far longer than a seller wants to see.

Hi Andrea, in looking at your chart, I notice the highest # of days on market was May of 2016. That would be about the lowest number of days on market for us in Sacramento because it's the month of most activity. Why is it so high in your market?
