  SHELTON Market Trends Report February 2013   The Shelton, Connecticut real estate market has shown signs of slowing down over the past 3 months. Compared to a year ago sale prices are lower.   The amount of inventory that the market can absorb has decreased over the past year. We use the 12 month absorption rate (see chart above to determine inventory absorption, which means that it would take about 5-6 months to sell every home currently on the market in Shelton.  This is a Seller's Market.  A year ago it would have taken 12 months to sell this inventory, making it a strong Buyer's Market.  The improvement in the market is due to an increased number of sales and less inventory.   INVENTORY   SALES   The lowest sale in Shelton over the past three months was $59,5000 and the highest s...

SHELTON Market Trends January 2013 The Shelton market appears to have hit bottom in Q4 2011 and has been improving until this last three month trend.  In fact, it is still now a Seller’s Market!  Despite the slowdown reflected in the fewer number of homes sold per month and greater supply on market (see 3 Months figures), this still looks like a market in recovery. SHELTON INVENTORY SHELTON SALES HOTTEST HOMES IN SHELTON What homes are most in demand by buyers in Shelton?  The sweet spot in the market is for 4 bedroom homes with a list price of $400,000-425,000.  They tend to be on the market only 98 days and sell for 96% of list price.  Originally posted at: www.fairfieldcountyshoreline.com
