 Stratford CT Single Family Market Report December 2015

 

What a way to end a year!! Stratford CT Single family home sales in December 2015 INCREASED 154% compared to December 2014 sales.


Listing and closed price averages went UP 11% and 10% respectively.   The median was UP 9%. 

 

Days on the market went up 18%.

 
The absorption rate for the month went further into seller's market territory from 4.27 last month to 2.93 this month, meaning if there was no new inventory, it would take 2.93 months to sell off the active 179 listings. 

The number of listings decreased 5% from last month.  This fact along with the high sales pushed that rate down.  Great for sellers who have their homes prepared to sell and priced correctly,  BUT not so for buyers who are searching daily for new inventory.
