New Canaan Single-Family Home Sales Up 79 Percent in September; Median Price Down 14 Percent

Single-family homes in town saw a 79 percent year-over-year increase in September—from 14 to 25—though the median price of those houses dropped by 14 percent in the same period, according to new data from the New Canaan Board of Realtors.

Joe Scozzafava, the organization’s president, called the increase in single-family home sales “significant” and said that 25 closings “is a very good sign for sellers.”

“Unfortunately the median price point continues to decline and this more realistic view of market value is what is contributing to increase in unit sales,” he said. “Inventory is also down slightly from last year but remains at a fairly normal 298.”

The median sales price declined from $1,860,000 to $1.6 million year-over-year, according to the statistics, taken from the New Canaan MLS.
