Active Westfield Luxury Homes for Sale in June 2017
The Garden State MLS reported a total of 20 active Westfield luxury homes on the market in June 2017. That's double the amount of active listings we saw in May 2017. Included among the active Westfield listings is the beautifully updated colonial at 560 West 1st Street. Originally built in 1922, this property underwent a huge renovation in 2015. This home entered the Westfield market just 23 days ago. Another currently active listing can be found at 204 Gallows Hill Rd. It was also renovated in 2015 and sits near Washington school. Of these, 12 were either newly built, are currently under construction or were ready to be built. Thirteen homes came onto the Westfield market within the last 30 days, including the aforementioned 560 West 1st Street.

Earlier this month, the Federal Reserve decided to raise rates another 1/4%. Since their announcement, however, mortgage rates experienced only a slight increase. They continue to hover around 4%. Financial experts believe we could see at least one, maybe two more increases before year's end. If you're interested in purchasing a Westfield luxury home, please contact me right away.
