Sellers are catching on-Price right and your home will sell, even in this market! Savvy buyers are getting pretty good deals if they are educated on the market, patient and know when to act. Realistic home sellers are securing deals on their homes as long as they are pricing at or below market value. Greenwich, (including Cos Cob, Riverside and Old Greenwich) is holding up in price appreciation but number of sales year to date is down about 35%. The last five months have seen a downward trend in overall number of sales per month. The good new is that inventory levels seem to be flat. While we may still be up in appreciation and number of sales by year end, the trend is clearly pointing to a change. If the trend continues, we may be looking at less optimistic numbers in the coming months.
