Here is a chart showing annual home and condo sales in Wallingford so far in 2011:
The number of homes sold in May remained level for condos, but rose by 33% for single family homes to their highest level of the year. The recent increase in the real estate conveyance tax may fuel a rise in sales in June as sellers rush to beat the July 1st start date. Inventory levels also rose for single family homes to their highest levels of the year, while condo inventory decreased slightly.
The following chart shows average days on market, or how many days it took to sell a home or condo, for year-to-date 2011:
Average days on market for all properties continue to fall, with single family homes plunging to a new low for the year at 53 days, while condos posted a modest 2 day decline. By far the fastest selling segment of the Wallingford housing market is the $250,000-$299,999 range, where 8 homes sold in 52 days. Interesting to note is that 8 homes priced lower, between $200,000 and $249,999 took over twice as long to sell, at 127 days. We’re going out on a limb here and predicting that the 53 days on market will not be sustainable over the long term, at least not yet.
