Home Sale Statistics for August

The current home sale statistics for August in the towns of Fairfield, Norwalk, Weston and Westport show a typical decline in all towns except for Westport.   This is not necessarily a trend as last month all other towns were up while Westport was down .  Overall the statistics for the past few months have shown an increase in activity in all towns from 2016, which is good news.   See the full report….

The months of July and August are historically slower than most other months along with November and December.  Once school is back in session, there is often an increase in home buying during September and August, which means closing numbers should increase for  November and December.

Inventory levels remain on the level to the low side.  Fairfield currently has 569 homes for sale and 12% of them have accepted offers.  Norwalk has 486 homes for sale and about 19% of them have accepted offers.  In Westport, there are 407 homes for sale and only 7% have offers.  This difference is due primarily to the price level in all towns.  Norwalk and Fairfield have a much more diversified market while Westport inventory is primarily in the high end.   Westport has 11 properties over $1,000,000 with accepted offers, where Norwalk has only 4 and Fairfield with 7.
