WOLCOTT CT-REAL ESTATE MARKET REPORT for JUNE 2015

Wolcott CT

What does the real estate market look like in Wolcott CT? Real estate prices in Wolcott CT have been dropping rather steadily over the last year, despite a few attempts in the last few months to regain the high ground in prices. This has encouraged more buyers to purchase homes in the last few months and in a shorter space of time. The number of pending sales and average pending prices has also encouraged sellers to put their homes on the market, despite the decline in prices.

Wolcott CT

So, what does this all mean?The data shows that Wolcott CTis moving towards a balanced market, but not as rapidly as buyers and sellers would hope. With average sale prices being higher and days on market being much longer for sold properties compared to last year, sellers have to be mindful that buyers are looking for value in the homes they are seeking to purchase and are willing to wait a bit longer for a home if they don’t see the value in the current offerings. But the fact that the number of pending homes is way above the normal average at this time of the year and have been on the market for less time than those properties that have sold is also a sign for buyers to act quickly on those properties that remain.

So, what should I take away from all of this information? Well, that depends on if you are a buyer or a seller.

If  you are a buyer, this tells you how many homes there are on the market in this area and what price range the typical home in this area sells for.
