The numbers from second quarter 2012 are in — and the results are an encouraging change from last year!

Rye enjoyed a stellar second quarter, with the number of homes sold in 10580 increasing 29% from last year (49 houses total in 2012). Additionally, the Average Sold Price jumped 39%, bringing Rye back to the $2M mark at $2,002,826. Although this number was impacted by larger homes, the Average Price Per Square Foot also saw an 8% increase from last year at this time.

Harrison 10528 saw a 30% increase in the number of homes sold, while 10580 dipped from 6 to 3 this year. However, it’s worth mentioning that these 3 sold 57% faster with only 120 Days on Market (from listing through closing).

This trend seems to be continuing through the summer, so if you’re considering selling this year, it’s a good time to give me a call at (914) 329-5329 for a market evaluation to get started!
