  Shelton CT single family home sales for June 2016 were down 25% as compared to June 2015 sales.  However, June sales were the highest for the year to date and increased 25% from last month.  Both listing average and closed sales averages decreased 2%  with the median down 4%.  This median is in line with the sales price average, but it is important to  understand the difference between median and averages when reading market reports.  The absorption rate went back down (from a buyer's market)  into a seller's market (statistically)  with 5.26 months of supply.  Translation: it would take 5.26 months to sell off the present inventory of 184 homes.  See the absorption rate chart below for the three-month trend.  Going forward, there are 45 homes under deposit and 63 homes pending.    Th...
