Rye Real Estate May 2009 Update – Rye House Tour 2009

Market Outlook

On the Market – 136

In Contract – 21:

10 conditional contract (awaiting mortgage commitment), 11 pending

Shop Talk:

Twenty five single family homes have sold in Rye in the past six months for an average price of $1,517,768, compared to fifty two homes sold during the same time period last year for an average price of $1,884,163, so we are definitely seeing some adjustments, yet activity has picked up in every price range. The houses currently in contract run the gamut from a 1,400+ square foot 3 bedroom listed in the $500,000 range to a Milton Point mansion with expansive property listed at nearly $7,000,000. Stricter financing requirements (and higher transaction fees) continue to be a factor for potential buyers, particularly in an area like ours requiring jumbo loans. Of the 25 homes sold in the past six months, eight or 32% were under $1,000,000 sales price for an average sales price of $705,938, while seventeen or 68% sold for over $1,000,000 with a $1,899,806 average sales price.
