According to the Greenwich MLS, active listings totaled 898, up 5% over last year. That said, it is interesting to note the same report notes the agent days on market is noticeably down, probably reflective of the fresher inventory rather than the sales pace.
There were 48 rentals at an average rental price of $4450 per month in September. Year to date there have been 666 rentals, slightly up over last year. The year to date average rental price is $5670 per month, essentially flat to last year. Volume is up 2%.
