Here is a chart showing annual home and condo sales in Wallingford so far in 2012:
Wallingford home and condo inventories showed little movement in February, but sales in both categories took a nosedive: single family home sales were down 40% and condo sales fell by 67% to just 2 units sold. The average selling price for condos also fell significantly, to $174,448 because the 2 units that sold only brought 84.7% of list price. The average sale price for single family homes was the one bright spot, rising about 5% for the month to almost $308,000. As bad as total sales were in February of 2011 they were worse this February, down by 43% from last year, and March’s numbers will only be marginally better. Conventional mortgage rates were still below 4% and CHFA rates for first time home buyers remained at 3.25 percent, but they were not enough to entice buyers to come off the fence. It should be no surprise that, with such depressing numbers, the Wallingford market was in an extreme buyer’s market heading into March.
