Condo price and sales numbers fall on year-over-year basis.

Jan. 9, 2019 (PEABODY, MA) – Single-family home sales in Connecticut decreased in November as prices increased on a year-over-year basis, according to the latest report from The Warren Group, publisher of The Commercial Record.

A total of 2,369 single-family homes were sold in Connecticut in November, compared to the 2,595 homes sold in November 2017 – an 8.7 percent decrease and the fourth consecutive month that sales have declined on a year-over-year basis. Meanwhile, the median single-family home price increased 3.1 percent to $250,000. Year-to-date, single-family home sales totaled 31,136 transactions, a 2.1 percent decrease from the first 11 months of 2017. At the same time, the year-to-date median sale price of $260,000 marked a 4 percent increase over the same period.

“Falling sales paired with the rising single-family home price continues to highlight the unique relationship between supply and demand in Connecticut real estate,” said Cassidy Murphy, associate publisher and media relations director of The Warren Group. “November marked the fourth consecutive month of falling sales on a year-over-year basis, and I fully expect the median sales price to continue its upward trend for the remainder of the year.”

The median sale price for condos also declined, falling 6.3 percent on a year-over-year basis to $150,000, down from $160,000 in November 2017.
