Here is a chart showing annual home and condo sales in North Haven so far in 2012:
After four consecutive months of increases, sales in North Haven saw a 26% drop from July. The numbers were hardly changed from August of 2010 or 2011, matching 2011’s numbers and beating 2010 by just one sale. Inventory levels have again declined slightly, but so did sales numbers, resulting in North Haven remaining in a normal seller’s market with 5.65 months of inventory available.
Conventional mortgage rates are still enjoying their lowest rates in years, but they have yoyoing a little; they were at 3.375% last month and have now dropped to 3.25 percent. CHFA rates for first time home buyers remained unchanged at 2.875 percent.
This chart shows how homes in various price ranges are currently selling:
North Haven’s sweet spot is the $200,000 to $400,000 range, where 60% of the sales occurred. Even so, almost the entire inventory is in a seller’s market despite homes priced higher than $500,000 not being in much demand. It appears that current inventory and sales numbers will continue to decline as we head into the Fall market.
