In a recent newsletter supplied by Berkshire Hathaway- I found the info there interesting and thought I would share-
Litchfield County-home sale prices up 18.5 % over last yr
Fairfield County-again, sale prices are up 7.8 %
Hartford County-ironically, sale price had same surge of 7.8%
Middlesex County-increase of 16.5% in NUMBER of sales and an increase of 27.3 % total dollar volume
New Haven County-total dollar vol DOWN 3.7 %
New London County-total dollar volume up 9.3 %
Tolland County-total dollar vol up 6% / avg sales price up 1.5 %
Windham County-avg price up 2.9%
all in all, CT seems to be doing pretty well from 2013
- 43 % of CT mkt is 1st time buyer
- 56% use smart phone for searches
- 87-89% use a Realtor
& 45% attend Open Houses!
I’d be curious to see how other parts of the country are fairing?? Have a great weekend!
