Ledyard Real Estate Update

Front 2The good news continues.  Pending sales reached 38 sales in October, the highest number of "pendings" since June. This follows 36 pending sales in September. 

It's a repeat of last month as October continues the good news from September and the median sales price eeks slowly higher and the number of active listings drops to the lowest level since January. For those that missed this last month - I have hoped to say this for a long time but I believe our buyer's market has ended in Ledyard!  If the trend continues we may find ourselves in a seller's market next spring. For now, I will cautiously say that since we have less than 6 months of inventory, we are in a balanced market* Keep in mind that certain price ranges do sell quicker than others.

*Real estate professionals agree that a 6 month supply of inventory is a balanced market where neither the buyer or the seller holds the advantage. As inventory drops to a 5 month supply, buyers will have fewer homes to choose from, causing prices to rise.  

On the Market

Inventory dropped slightly in August and again in September and October. In fact, inventory is at the lowest level since January (good news for sellers). There are currently 102 single family homes on the market. The median list price is $271,000. There were 24 new or back on the market listings reported in October. Having shifted from a buyer's market to a balanced market, we are beginning to see a small increase in prices.

Current Pending Sales

There are currently 38 pending listings with a median list price of $200,000.

There are currently 15 pending sales but "Show for Backup" with a median list price of $190,000. Homes are often listed as "Show for Backup" when there may be a concern about contract contingencies including financing. 

Closed Sales

There are currently 205 closed sales in Ledyard with a median sales price of $210,000.

There were 19 closed listings in October. 

While it is useful to follow month by month, a 6 month trend is a better indicator of market conditions. The median price of the 143 homes that have closed in the past 6 months is $210,000. This number is trending up and exceeds the median sold price in 2015!

The median price of the 143 homes that have sold in the past 6 months is $210,000.

Ledyard Trunk or Treat

Trunk or Treat jpg

The 4th annual Ledyard Trunk or Treat event will take place this Friday, October 28th. Forty eight vehicles are now registered and the weather looks to be mighty fine for the last days of October. If you are attending Trunk or Treat, you WILL NOT be admitted before 6:00PM. Children with sensory issues and those under 3 may arrive at 5:45 when those with trunks will refrain from using strobe lights, blinking lights, motion activated items, and scary or loud music.

What started out four years ago as a small  event organized by a single parent with only 48 hours notice has grown to a large community event with many businesses and volunteer organizations participating.

IMPORTANT: Parking will be at Ledyard Center School for those not hosting a trunk. Enter by way of the rear entrance as seen in the map below. For safety reasons, please do not park across the street!

Set up time for those with trunks will begin at 4:30.
