 As you can see in the first chart below, representing the median selling prices in November 2007, 2006 and 2005, we found that:sales in November this year were better than last year and better than 2 years ago. in all types of properties, median selling prices this year were higher than in November2005 and November 2006.only Co-Ops did better in Nov. 2006 than in Nov. 2005.  In the chart below we see the number of units sold. We saw a decrease in terms of units sold this year compared to 2006 and 2005. Less properties were sold, but those sold produced a Median Selling price higher than those observed in 2006 and 2005. Now, isn't it a sign of a strong market in Stamford?   What do you think? How is your local market doing? NESTOR N. ROMEROWWW.HOMESBYNESTOR.COM

As you can see in the table below, Prices paid (median price) for Single Family homes in Stamford (3 or 4 Bedrooms, between 1,500 and 2,000 SqFt.) in October 2002 were 70.46% over the median price paid for similar homes in October 2000 ($479,000 vs. $360,500). Prices have decreased from $614,500 in October 2004 to $505,000 in October 2007, or a 17.81%.Overall, prices have increased 40% between October 2000 and October 2007 which represents a great ROI. A better performance than many stocks.In the graphs below you can see how the number of listings sold and the average number of days on market have behaved in the last 7 years. Prepared and published by Nestor N.

This last week we had 550 units showing as either Active or Under Contract, from which, 66.18% (364) listings were Active, 22 condos as  new listings (4%), 39 condos as Continue to Show (7.09%).19 Condos (3.45%) showed a reduction in price, and 84 condos (15,27%) went under contract.The average median listing price this week was $441,244.It is interesting to take a look at the different Median Listing Prices. As you can see, MLP from high to low follows this order:Condos Under Contract (Sale Pending), Active Condos, Condos (New Listings), Continue to Show Reduced Price. I would infere from these figures that new listings show some more adjusted prices. Sellers seem to be adjusting their expectations to what the market is actually expecting: They priced their properties above those prope...

Dear Reader, I just wanted to say hello to all of my friends, past clients, business partners and blog subscribers.  I wanted to share with you about how I was the guest speaker at All Star Realty's office meeting last night in Stamford, Connecticut.  It was an honor to attend this meeting and speak with all of the agents of the office about where we are today as far as the mortgage industry is concerned.   I attended the meeting with the following in my hands: 1.) Business Cards, plenty of them. 2.) Company information about the mortgage company that I work for and have been working for since January of 2005. 3.) Co-Marketing flyers where I can do some marketing with each of the agents in the All Star Realty office. 4.) Open House Mortgage flyers to show as examples for all of the offi...

  We saw some interesting results in sales of Condominiums in Norwalk, Danbury and Stamford:As oposed to what happened with Single Family properties in Stamford and Norwalk last month, the number of condo units sold in Sept. 2007 was lower than one year ago for these three towns. (Danbury showed the largest difference).Prices, however, were higher this year than in 2006 for condos sold in Norwalk and Stamford.

Only those condos sold in Stamford in the price range of $600,000 and $800,000 this year have been sold for more than those sold last year in the same price range and period: They reached prices 1.52% higher this year. Condos sold between $200,000 and $600,000 this year, have been sold for just under 0.5% less than last year.Take a look:

The largest price reduction between SF homes sold in Stamford in September 2007 compared to those sold in September 2006 was observed in the price range of $600,000 - $800,000 (8.62%).Since there was only one home sold in the price range $200,000 - $400,000, it is not statistically significant to draw conclusions.On the other hand, homes sold in the price range 'Over $800,000' were sold for over 36% more this year, even though only 6 properties in that range were sold versus 13 last year.

I am including here the report for sales reported thru the CT-MLS as occurring between Jul 23 and Aug 23. It will be interesting to see how these two neighbor towns, Norwalk and Stamford behave in 2 and 4 weeks.As you can see, in Stamford, the highest number of units sold comes from Condos sold in the price range ($450,000 - $600,000), followed by 22 units of Single Family homes sold in the same price range.

This is the sales report for the last month in Stamford. It is interesting to note that the least expensive SF properties reached the biggest variance between Listing Price and Selling Price. The same happened with multi-family properties with the highest price tag.I will check again in 2 weeks and post the results and by then we will be able to draw some conclusions on what trend our local market is following.

Dear Reader, I was referred to a very interesting website which I thought was extremely interesting to me and I know for a fact that it would be interesting for you as well.  You don't have to be a financial analyst or a mortgage industry analyst to know that we are going through some rough times.  I was referred to this websute: http://www.ml-implode.com/ which is a website dedicated to the mortgage lending industry.  This website has news about lenders that have gone out of business and lenders that are on a watch list of lenders in trouble or possibly going out of business.  You can take a look at the website closely on your own and you figure out if this is really accurate or not.  Below I will copy and paste the 117 mortgage lenders that have already gone out of business or are on...

To understand the attached graphic, i will comment on some of these numbers:While in Danbury Condos in the price range of $400K to $600K were the only ones whose prices were increased, in Stamford we can see that it was the condominiums in a lower price range  ($300K - $400K) the ones who luckily saw their prices going up about 2.3% in average. At the same time, in 2006 the difference between the Listing Price and the Selling Price for condos between $300K and $400K between Jun10 and Aug10 was about 3.61% while in 2007 it was only 1.43%. This means that listing prices for that particular market segment were closer to selling prices.

1) Obtenga una Pre-Aprobación ("Pre-Approval"). Una pre-aprobación es una carta que su "mortgage broker" o banco le deberán preparar una vez hayan investigado su crédito, nu nivel de ingreso, sus costos mensuales promedio entre otras informaciones.Según Lennox Scott, CEO de John L. Scott Real Estate, usted debe demostrar que usted tiene capacidad de asumir el préstamo y que está listo para presentar una oferta. Todo comprador tiene ya una aprobación y usted no quiere que se le adelanten. Parte del paquete de documentos que el Agente que lo represente enviará en el momento de presentar la oferta al vendedor es esa carta de pre-aprobación. Sin esa carta, su oferta no será tomada en serio.De acuerdo con Bob Moulton, corredor de Hipotecas (Mortgage broker) de Americana Mortgage, el tener su...

These three towns, as in most of the country, are showing a reduced number of SOLD properties compared to one year ago. As we all know, the Real Estate market is cyclical as it is the economy, politics, the seasons...., and in this particular scenario, it is about LOCATION. As you well know, it's about the address, and some towns saw their real estate prices going higher and earlier than others a couple of years ago. The same is happening with the so called "price adjustment" or "market adjustment". Some towns have reduced (normalized) their prices earlier than others:We can see that in Stamford, there have been 41.70% less SOLD Single Family properties between Jan.10 and July 10 this year than one year ago during the same period. Stamford is the only town/city of the three compared her...
