The past 7 day finds a continued drop in the number of Active Listings in the Ledyard market. This is that time of year where sellers, who haven't sold their homes often take them off the market in anticipation of a better market this spring. This leaves a more limited supply of inventory for home buyers and less competition for sellers.
The Chart of the Week below proves the theory that the highest price closings happen in spring and summer, specifically April, May, June and July. Looking at the chart for this year to date, you'll see that the average sales price has continued to drop since July.
The average list price (asking price) of the 97 homes currently on the market is $251,859. There are currently 21 homes pending with an average sold price of $217,105.
There were 9 new listings, 2 pending sales and 3 closed sales reported in the past 7 days.
