Turns out, not that bad, and certainly improved from 2013. Here are the numbers, provided by the (subscription only) real estate statistics site, SearchGreenwich.net, for single-family quarterly sales this year vs. last:
First quarter 2013: 96
First quarter 2014: 109
(SearchGreenwich tracks all reported sales, including non-MLS, but around 94% of sales are listed by brokers)
For The Year
The worst year in everyone’s memory was 2009, when the MLS showed 333 sales for the entire year; very scary. In 2013 we were back up to a more prosperous level of 620 sales, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see 700+ sales for all of 2014.
