Glastonbury is currently a Buyer's Market - Look for Opportunities!!! - 08/13/09 08:01 AM
Comparing the Glastonbury market median sales prices for the first half of 2009 ($320,000) to the corresponding period for 2008 ($392,300), the 18+% decrease is significant. This does not mean that everyone in town has lost 20% of the value of their houses; there are many indications that buyers in Glastonbury this year are choosing to be conservative, buying more modestly-priced properties. There are also more modestly-priced homes for sale in town. If we look at the median sales, by price paid, we see that $320,000 in 2009 bought 119 Spring Street, a restored antique colonial with 2,100 sf, 8 rooms, 3 (1 comments)
The new IKEA Catalog has arrived--download a free planner for your kitchen or office - 08/08/09 06:03 AM
Are you ready to update your home? Whether you need a few new accent pillows for the living room, a cabinet for your flatscreen, or an entirely new kitchen--- IKEA is worth a look... As we look forward to the recession's end, the new catalog (prices good through June 30, 2010) features many items priced lower than last year. They also offer a few specially priced items each month. We are lucky to have an IKEA in New Haven, just 40 minutes from the Hartford area (I-91 south to I-95 south to exit 46). This showroom is worth a visit (and (0 comments)
West Hartford Market Remains Robust for the first half of 2009 - 08/05/09 05:30 AM
The West Hartford market was steady for the first half of 2009 (with less sales at the higher end of the spectrum). There were 254 closed sales of houses recorded in the Multiple Listing Service for the year through the end of June (down from 283 during the same timeframe in 2008). One of the most encouraging numbers was the median Days on Market for these sales at 34 days. This shows that well-priced properties are still selling quickly (and in multiple offers). The Days on Market is a week longer than in 2008 (27 days). For 2009 sales, the median list price was $289,900 (0 comments)
