The average sale price this winter was $551,616 with the average home selling 71 days. How does the winter of 2014-15 compare with previous years? Significantly more homes were sold this winter (118) compared to last winter (36). Inventory is slightly higher this year (125 listings) than last year (111).

A necessary first step to take before you buy or sell a Scotch Plains home is to learn about local real estate market trends. Here's what you need to know this month.   Inventory: There are currently 148 single family homes offered for sale in Scotch Plains. While the inventory is dropping since the summer peak, there are still plenty of homes to sell. In November of 2013, there were 119 homes actively listed. The high inventory this year isn't because homes aren't selling - in fact, homes are selling quite quickly. There were 25 sales in Scotch Plains in November, nearly 3 times as many as there were in November of 2013. The high inventory this year is because  some homeowners who have postponing selling for a few years are finally feeling confident that their home values have returned...

Unfortunately do to ongoing construction the Tree Lighting that was scheduled for tonight has been cancelled.  The grounds are so muddy that parking on the site is very difficult.  Keep your eyes open for future events that will be held at the Frazee House.  Over the next few years there will be tremendous imrovements to the site making it one of the premeire park/historic sites in the county.
