During the last 14 days 30 homes have come on the market in West Hartford and Bloomfield. West Hartford saw 25 new listings during this time and 8 of those are already under deposit. Bloomfield saw 5 new listings in the last two weeks and 1 of those is already under deposit. For West Hartford that means that 32% of homes listed in the last 2 weeks are under contract with buyers. In Bloomfield the percentage is 20%.
The spring market has started and homes in our area are selling. Last weekend one of my buyer clients was successful in a multiple offer situation on a West Hartford Home. Another home listed by our office received seven offers with a few days of becoming active on the market.
If you are a homeowner thinking of selling, this is a good time, but please get your home in the right condition to be shown. It must be cleared of clutter and an excess of personal items. If you are a buyer, remember that the real estate market is local and that in this area of Connecticut homes that are in good condition and are priced accurately are selling for good prices. Please don't think that because the national news is full of doom and gloom that you will be able to buy your home for less than market value.
