Here is a look at the pending sales so you can see how our future market is trending, and WOW…we're down to 19 pending transactions in New Canaan. Last month, in September, we had 27, so this is quite a drop even from last month. Let's dig a little deeper to see what's going on.
This is the graph for the median sales price in New Canaan. As you can see we are up to a little over $1.6MM. You might remember that last month, in September we dropped to $1.25MM, and I suggested that this was due to the small data set. The good news is that we are back on track. Let's see what the supply looks like.
If reading this has you wondering what your property is worth, you can get an estimate by using our Home Valuation tool.
Alright, so this is good news for buyers. We are up to 3.9 months of supply. That's up a bit from last year as you can see from the trend line. Last month, in September, we had 3.7 months, so this is good. We may be progressing to a more balanced market.
Here is the graph for median percent of list price. As you can see we are still holding at 100%. So half of the sellers are getting more, and half are getting less than this number. The homes that sell quicker than the median tend to get stronger offers, so let's take a look at the median days on the market graph.
The days on market graph shows that we are up to 54 days on market, which is up compared to last year. If you were selling your home, you would want to sell quickly in order to get the strongest offers.
The number of homes for sale is down to 114 this month, and it looks like we are still on the downward trend. I’ll be interested to see what happens next month.

In summary, despite the large drop in pending sales, the rest of the metrics in New Canaan look pretty good.
While I can already see signs that the market is getting better for our buyers, the ones who are successful are STILL the ones who are prepared and move quickly when they find the right house.
The sellers that are struggling right now need to do a price drop quickly so they can take advantage of the small amount of the fall market that is left.
Buyers, there will be some very good deals between now and January, you should be ready to pull the trigger if the right opportunity presents itself.
