No. Haven Sales for July 2012

Sales in North Haven saw a fourth consecutive month of increases, beating June by 32%, July 2011 by 79%, and July 2010 by 127%. In fact, 2012 sales figures are the best they’ve been in the past two years. Inventory levels have again declined slightly, and combined with the strong sales numbers, North Haven’s market has improved from a balanced real estate market to now being a normal seller’s market with just under 4.5 months of inventory available.

Conventional mortgage rates are still enjoying their lowest rates in years, but they have now risen to 3.5%, and CHFA rates for first time home buyers also crept up to 2.875 percent. It looks like we may have seen the last of declining rates, and if this is the case, buyers who have been contemplating a move should now begin to feel some urgency in making it. Every day they delay could potentially add thousands of dollars to their mortgage. Just as an example, the result of the recent .25% increase in the rate on a $200,000 mortgage would mean a buyer pays almost $30 more a month, or almost $11,000 over the life of the loan, money that could have been used elsewhere.

No. Haven Sales for June 2012

Sales in North Haven saw a third consecutive month of increases, beating May by 20% even though condo sales fell to zero; however, 2012 sales figures are still 17% under 2011 and 10% under 2010. One good piece of news is that current sales are only 24% off the best performing month in the last two years, which was May of 2011 (while that sounds like a lot, it’s only 6 total sales!). Another good piece of news is that the number of properties under contract has increased every month so far this year, gaining 100% since January. Inventory levels have declines slightly, and combined with the increase in sales means that North Haven remains in a balanced real estate market with just over 7 months of inventory available.

Conventional mortgage rates are enjoying their lowest rates in years, now at roughly 3.25%, and CHFA rates for first time home buyers are also in uncharted territory at an unprecedented 2.75 percent. It’s hard to tell if or when these rates will start to rise, but as long as they remain at these historically low levels and home prices remain stable, sales should continue to improve in North Haven, as well as Wallingford and Meriden.
