Edgemont Market Update: Sales in Edgemont are enjoying a strong start in 2012, evidenced by record levels of activity during this past winter. The market has been helped by an unseasonably warm winter and a perception that the market has bottomed out while interest rates may start to rise.
I think it is important for Edgemont residents to know that the Edgemont market is once again attracting buyers.
As of the end the first quarter 2012, there are currently 77 homes on the market in Edgemont, with 14 homes under contract, and 13 homes pending (property on which contracts have been signed but have not closed). Pending sales is the most accurate gauge of real-time activity, as closings generally lag pending sales by sixty to ninety days. Pending sales, unlike sales that are reported as under contract, are not (or are no longer), contingent on mortgage approval.
Edgemont has 17 closed sales in the first quarter of 2012, with a median price of $1,095,000. This compares favorably to the first quarter of 2011, with 6 closed sales, and a median price of $917,500. Median price and unit sales increased 19% and 183%, respectively, for the first quarter 2011 and first quarter 2012 on a year over year basis.
At the current rate of sales activity, 2012 looks to be a solid year for Edgemont. At year-end 2011, Edgemont had 49 homes sold, with a median price of $925,000. At the end of the first quarter 2012, closed sales, home under contract, and homes pending, represent total activity of 44 units, only slightly behind the full year 2011 activity. It is also worth noting that 2012 first quarter closing of 17 units is the highest level Edgemont has seen in the past 6 years. In 2007, the height of the market, first quarter closed sales totaled 16 units.
Within the Cotswold neighborhood at the end of the first quarter 2012, there are currently 3 homes for sale, 2 homes under contract, 4 homes pending, and 3 homes sold in the first quarter. Remember that the Costwold neighborhood association prohibits the placement of any signs on your property, including for sale signs.
