During December the inventory of single family homes in Wethersfield decreased from 125 to 104 homes. This is typical for the holiday season. New pending sales in December (9) were level with new pending sales in November (8). Total pending sales decreased from 30 to 18 because 19 transactions closed in December.
December 2010 Market Activity
|On Market||Pending Sales||Closed Sales|
|December Volumes||19 New Listings||9 Went Under Contract||19 Closed This Month|
|Total Volumes||104 Homes on Market||18 Total Pending||215 Sold Year to Date|
|% With Price Reductions||53.0%||50.0%||51.16%|
The percentage of active listings with price reductions decreased from 58.4% to 53.0%. The 19 new listings and 9 new pending sales helped this price reduction statistic.
Some interesting statistics:
- 10 of the 19 sales that closed in December were on the market for less than 30 days (measured from listing date to contract date).
- Only 3 of the 10 homes on the market for less than 30 days were bank owned properties.
- 8 of the 9 homes that were on the market for more than 30 days had one or more price reductions.
- 4 of the 19 sales closed for asking or more!
The speed with which the 10 homes sold (in under 30 days) and the 100%+ list to sale price ratio for 4 of the 19 sales shows that list price is key.
