fairfield real estate: Good News for Fairfield Real Estate - 09/05/09 05:47 AM

fairfield real estate: Stratfield Neighborhood Update - 08/31/09 03:38 AM
Through July 31st, 37 Single Family homes have been sold in the Stratfield Neighborhood.  This is down 30% from the prior year when 53 homes sold.  This total is off 46% from the  68 homes that sold in 2007. It appears that the "train station effect" has not had a big impact.  Fairfield is building a third train station much closer to this neighborhood which should attract more commuters.  
Let's take a look at how prices are holding up.  The Average Selling Price so far this year is $461,432.   This value is 17% below the 2008 Average Selling Price of $553,714.

fairfield real estate: Fairfield's University Area Real Estate Update - 08/30/09 07:03 AM
Yes it is a tough Real Estate Market but Fairfield's University Area is out performing most towns and neighborhoods.  The University Area refers to those homes surrounding the Fairfield University Campus.  Through July 31st, 55 Single Family homes have been sold.  This is up 8% over the prior year.  That's right more homes have been sold.  Unfortunately, the number of sales is still far below the 97 homes sold in 2007.  The University Area has always been in top demand due to its proximity to Fairfield's Downtown Train Station.  
Amazingly, prices seem to have held up too!  The Average Sales … (0 comments)

fairfield real estate: Southport Real Estate Update - 08/26/09 05:23 AM
The last two years have not been kind to Southport Real Estate.   21 Homes sold so far this year....down 22% from last year and down 54% from 2007.
Median price is up 6% over last year but down 16% from 2007. The increase over last year may be just a function of too few homes being sold.   Avg Selling Price is off 11% from last year and a whopping 46% from 2007. The Average Price in 2007 was $1,790,685.
Southport is a great example of the current problem in the Real Estate market. Simply, it is a lack of buyers. Southport … (0 comments)

fairfield real estate: How to keep things in Perspective - 08/07/09 02:35 AM
With all the economic news, numbers and statistics coming at us every day, I thought it would be good to keep all the numbers in perspective and not to let them age us too fast.  Here is one of my favorite pieces to help keep all these numbers from overwhelming us. Hope this brings a smile to your face, too! 
HOW TO STAY YOUNG  (by George Carlin)1. Throw out nonessential numbers. These include age, weight and height. Let the doctor worry about them. That is why you pay him/her.2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, … (0 comments)

After two of the stronger months for sales in the last year, Fairfield is now only trailing 2008 by 21%.  June and July home closings are bringing us back from trailing by up to forty percent earlier in the year.  Selling prices seemed to have stablized at 10-15% below last year.

The rebound is being driven by home sales under $1 Million.  The highend segment is still experiencing … (0 comments)

Gov't allows short-term loans for tax credit   By ALAN ZIBEL AP Real Estate Writer Updated: 05/29/2009 03:26:04 PM EDT
WASHINGTON-Thousands of first-time homebuyers will be able to get short-term loans so they can quickly make use of a new $8,000 tax credit to pay for some of the costs of buying a home. The Federal Housing Administration on Friday released details of a plan in which borrowers who use FHA loans can get advances from lenders that let them effectively receive the credit in advance, so they don't have to wait to get the money from the Internal Revenue Service. … (0 comments)
