What does all of this mean? We seem to go up and down on a regular basis in the amount of homes sold however August and September had the same amount sold. It is still most definitely a buyers market. Each month brings us up, the next down, sales are not consistent. The key to selling a home in this market is to price it far better than the other competing homes in the same category.

Buyers can take advantage of some pretty amazing deals these days, between jaw dropping interest rates and home prices, as long as the seller realizes that, in all honesty, the best price they will realize from the sale of their home is the one a buyer is willing to pay and the bank is willing to loan on it. Still, with the uncertain job market, many seem to be hesitant to get out there and look.

The above statistics are provided courtesy of Greater Fairfield County Multiple Listing Service (CMLS). Information provided is deemed reliable, but not necessarily accurate. There may be discrepancies, as mistakes in inputing can be made, and the fact that Connecticut has more than one multiple listing service. There may be instances where a home was/is for sale in New Milford and is on the other multiple listing service. Most of the homes for sale are listed on CMLS, therefore that is where I base my statistical information. I do believe it gives a good sense of what is happening in New Milford.
