Real Estate Market Update for 06517 (Hamden, CT)
Welcome to November's Market Update,. Let’s take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of November. The number of active listings was down 3% from one year earlier, and down 17% from the previous month. This smaller inventory means that buyers who waited to buy may have had a smaller selection to choose from. As you can see, the median listing price for the month was just under 210-thousand dollars. Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was up 76%. This higher number of days may signal a slowdown in the local inventory-turnover rate. The median sale price was just under 140-thousand dollars. The number of units sold decreased 37% year-over-year, and decreased 9% month-over-month.
