New Canaan Home Sales Up 14% in June

Sales of single-family homes in New Canaan were up 14% in June from last the same month last year, according to new data. Most of the increased sales occurred in homes less than $1 million, and the median sales price for June fell by 13% year-over-year, from $1,387,500 to $1,207,500, according to data released by the New Canaan Board of Realtors. 

Here’s a table tracking the activity:

 

Board of Realtors President Melissa Rwambuya said in a statement, “The market continues to be incredibly active with many buyers moving here from New York City.”

The town is reporting increased building permit applications for small home projects, which officials are attributing to homeowners readying their houses for sale amid the strong market. There are far fewer New Canaan houses on the market than one year ago. Inventory in June was down 33%, from 363 to 242, according to the Board’s data. Homes spent an average of 183 days on the market in June, up 8% from 170 days one year ago, the data show.

New Construction Planned for Cedar Lane

A five-bedroom home is planned for a 1.68-acre lot on Cedar Lane, according to a building permit application received June 9. The 5,480-square-foot home at 270 Cedar Lane will include seven rooms and 1.5 baths on the first floor, and five bedroom on the second floor, including a master with a metal fireplace, according to the building permit application. 

It will cost about $750,000 to build, the application said, and the contractor is Ardsley, N.Y.-based Woodcrest Homes LLC. The home is designed by D. Peters Designs of Wilton. The property was purchased earlier this month for $610,000 by a limited liability company owned by residents of Long Island and Westchester County, N.Y. It has a 1956-built ranch-style home on the parcel now, tax records show.
