(Hartford, Conn., February 18, 2020) – According to the Greater Hartford Association of REALTORS® (GHAR), closed sales of single family homes in Greater Hartford rose 4.04 percent over January of 2019 (from 396 to 412). Pending sales increased 10.54 percent (from 408 to 451) and the median sale price increased 14.07 percent (from $209,880 to $239,400). New listings increased 2.99 percent (from 603 to 621) and inventory dropped 13.21 percent (from 2105 to 1827), during this same timeframe.

Condominium closed sales increased 14.46 percent (from 83 to 95) over January of last year. The median sale price decreased 1.64 percent (from $152,500 to $150,000) and inventory decreased 14.67 percent (from 484 to 413). New listings rose 8.13 percent (from 160 to 173) over this time versus a year ago.

“The uptick in closed and pending sales is setting us up for a strong start to the year,” stated GHAR CEO, Holly Callanan. “The advice of a Realtor early in the process is the best way to negotiate a market with healthy buyer demand and tight inventory,” she said.

In the national outlook, Lawrence Yun, National Association of REALTORS® chief economist, said home sales fluctuated a great deal last year. “I view 2019 as a neutral year for housing in terms of sales,” Yun said. “Home sellers are positioned well, but prospective buyers aren’t as fortunate. Low inventory remains a problem, with first-time buyers affected the most.”
