Rocky Hill Single Family Homes Market Activity as of 12/31/2010

It is not uncommon for the number of new and active listings to decrease during the holidays. As with Rocky Hill condos, the average days on market and the percentage of listings with price reductions increased after June, 2010, the expiration of the First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit (for most buyers). However, the supply time for current inventory (homes on the market) decreased from a high of 12.2 month at the end of April to 6.1 months at the end of December. At first blush a reduction in the supply time may seem in contradiction with an increasing average days on market. However, the supply time as decreased because there are fewer homes on the market, but the homes that are on the market have been, on average, for five+ months.

December 2010 Market Activity

  On Market Pending Sales Closed Sales
December Volumes 5 New Listings 8 New Contracts 11 Closed This Month
Total Volumes 47 Active Listings 14 Pending Sales 90 Closed This Year
Most Expensive $499,500 $529,000 $1,165,000
Least Expensive $149,900 $209,9000 $70,000
% With Price Reductions 40.42% 50.0% 34,44%
Average Days on Market 156 days 100 days 57 days


As with condos, there is a direct correlation between list price and average days on market. Homes priced in the market sell very quickly. Homes priced with room to negotiate take longer to sell. 10 of the 11 homes that closed in December were on the market for less than 60 days before they received a contract, and 6 of the 11 did not have a price reduction and sold within the first 30 days they were on the market. I believe these statistics show the importance of price at time of listing.
