Glastonbury Market Report for Last Quarter and 2008 Comparison to 2007

  

Residential

 9/1/2007 -12/31/2007 compared to 9/1/2008 - 12/31/2008  

Comparing the last quarter of 2007 to 2008 there was not too  much change as far as number of sales.  There were 94 in 2007 compared to 91 in 2008.  Median sale price was down 7.7%, from $370,000 in 2007 compared to $345,000 in 2008.  Days on the market went from 39 in 2007 to 34 in 2008.  This figure can be deceiving though , since it does not take into account homes that were on the market and expired and then relisted.

1/1/2007 - 12/31/2007 compared to 1/1/2008 - 12/31/2008

Looking at comparisons for the year, sales were down 15.6% from 2007.  In 2007 there were 374 closed sales and in 2008 there were only 316 closed sales.  Overall prices were only down about 1% from a median price of $391.450 in 2007 to a median price of $388,000 in 2008. 

Compared to the rest of the country the residential market does not look too bad for Glastonbury. Right now inventory is way down, probably because of just getting past the holidays.  There are 142 homes on the market as of this day.

Condominiums

9/1/2007 - 12/31/2007 compared to 9/1/2008 - 12/31/2008

Comparing the last quarter of 2007 to the last quarter of 2008 there was not a major change as far as number of sales.  The last quarter of 2007 had 34 closed sales and in 2008 there were 28 closed sales.  The median sale price actually went up about 1% from $199,500 in 2007 to $202,450 in 2008.

1/1/2007 - 12/31/2007 compared to 1/1/2008 - 12/31/2008 

Looking at comparisons for the year,  in 2007 there were 155 closed sales compared to 96 in 2008, a drop of 31.9% which is pretty major.  Median sale price actually went up about 1%, from $197,000 in 2007 compared to $199,950 in 2008.  Days on the market were up slightly and overall condos are selling for about 97% of their final asking price.

Do not be fooled reading this report though, since in order to sell your home the correct pricing is still crucial.  What this report does not show you is the number of homes that have been on the market for more than 6 months and the number of price adjustments they have gone through.  For the homes under deposit right now the median days on the market have risen to 74.

Marabeth I hope that you are going to do a market report on Middletown also.  I will be keeping an eye out for it.
