Did you know that homes sold for 6.76% more in CT last quarter?

Connecticut 2017 Year End Market Report Summary

Connecticut sales were down by 1.99% in the fourth quarter, however, average price increased by 6.76% to $344,218. Days on market for both single family homes and condominiums increased by 9.41% and 2.13%, respectively during this fourth quarter. Condominium sales surged in Windham, Middlesex, Hartford and New Haven Counties with corresponding increases in pricing – showing demand for lower maintenance living across the state. New building permits continue to decrease, with 10.87% fewer permits issued as of November 2017 when compared to 2016. Types of permits are still split evenly between single family homes and buildings with 5 or more units. Luxury home sales – those sold for over $2 million – saw continued increases with 7.83% more sales (115) in the 4th quarter when compared to 2016. 22 of these sales were over $5 million, compared to only 7 sales in the last quarter of 2016. Year over year, there were 10.30% more luxury sales at an average price of $3,613,098. Over 90% of the luxury sales in Connecticut took place in Fairfield County during 2017.

Cumulative data showed a strong year overall. In 2017, sales increased by 3.00% to 45,067 for the state (single family homes and condominiums combined). The average price was $349,077, a 3.71% increase when compared to 2016 and days on market dropped from 2016’s 139 days to an average of 83 days. New listings are down 4.82% year over year, making 2018 an opportunity for homeowners to list their home.

The most significant issue sellers and buyers need to be aware of is the new tax bill. It is too early to tell how it is going to impact the state of Connecticut but it will be a variable for the housing market in 2018. Regardless of the implications, move-in-ready homes and those within walking distance to shops and restaurants will remain front runners in the 2018 market.

If you have any questions regarding this report or real estate questions in general, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England Properties Realtors®, Rob Rosa at 860-558-2122 or, is here to help you navigate the current market with expert knowledge and exceptional service.

How many homes on the market during the busiest listing month?

How many homes were on the market in May (the busiest listing month) last year?  Wow!  #caringagent

Thinking of Selling? Now is the Perfect Time

It is common knowledge that a great number of homes sell during the spring-buying season. For that reason, many homeowners hold off on putting their homes on the market until then. The question is whether or not that will be a good strategy this year.
The other listings that do come out in the spring will represent increased competition to any seller. Do a greater number of homes actually come to the market in the spring as compared to the rest of the year? The National Association of Realtors (NAR) recently revealed the months in which most people listed their homes for sale in 2017. Here is a graphic showing the results:
Thinking of Selling? Now is the Perfect Time | MyKCM
The three months in the second quarter of the year (represented in red) are consistently the most popular months for sellers to list their homes on the market. Last year, the number of homes available for sale in January was 1,680,000.

That number spiked to 1,970,000 by May!

What does this mean to you?

With the national job situation improving, and mortgage interest rates projected to rise later in the year, buyers are not waiting until the spring; they are out looking for homes right now. If you are looking to sell this year, waiting until the spring to list your home means you will have the greatest competition amongst buyers.

Bottom Line

It may make sense to beat the rush of housing inventory that will enter the market in the spring and list your home today.

Why Bother?

Sometimes we all think...why bother? In a moment of inspiration I am thinking it's because we are all connected. Whether through our souls, spirits or what ever you might say...we are all connected and effect each other. Do what needs to be done, the right (kind) way to help someone in a caring way. You will be amazed how we can all help each other smile a little more in today's world. What you do does make a difference.

Should Boomers Buy or Rent after Selling?

Should Boomers Buy or Rent after Selling? | MyKCM
In a recent CNBC article, it was reported that many baby boomers are selling their current homes and moving into rentals, rather than purchasing another home.
“Between 2009 and 2015, the number of renters aged 55 or above rose 28 percent, while those aged 34 or younger only increased 3 percent...
Meanwhile, more than 5 million baby boomers across the nation are expected to rent their next home by 2020, according to a 2016 analysis from Freddie Mac.”
This makes sense in the short term for many reasons. If you are moving to a different part of town or a new region of the country, you may decide to rent until you pick the perfect home in an area you love. However, is renting a good long-term strategy?

A mortgage payment remains fixed. Rents, however…

The Census Bureau recently released their 2017 third quarter median rent numbers. Here is a graph showing rent increases from 1988 until today:
Should Boomers Buy or Rent after Selling? | MyKCM
As you can see, rents have steadily increased and are showing no signs of slowing down. If you are faced with making the decision of whether you should rent or buy your next home, you should take this into consideration.

Bottom Line

One way to protect yourself from rising rents is to lock in your housing expense by buying a home instead of renting. Let’s get together so we can help you decide what the best step is for you and your family!
