Economic Woes Take Their Toll on Scarsdale Real Estate Plus Sales and Featured Listings

39ChurchLaneA teardown at 39 Church LaneThe numbers are in – and they confirm what many feared. The new tax law, economic uncertainty and demographic trends have taken their toll on the market for homes in Scarsdale.

In 2018 only 210 homes sold, down from 253 in 2017, a 17% decline in the number of homes sold. The median price also declined 9.7% to $1.508 mm with the average price at $1.807 mm, a 3.5% decline.

Edgemont fared much better with 91 homes sold in 2018 compared to 87 in 2017, a 4.6% increase. The average price fell slightly from $1.254mm to 1.14mm in 2018 and the median price also declined from $1.202mm in 2017 to $1.082mm in 2018.

Despite the weakened appetite for homes in 2018, developers continued to tear down existing homes to replace them with new construction. As one realtor pointed out, the homes that were torn down are typically far less pricey than the new construction, which depletes the Village’s inventory of lower priced homes and makes it difficult for young families to move in.

Anne Moretti of Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s put the sales figures for Scarsdale into perspective, saying, “It was the lowest number of homes sold in 7 years; however, it was only the second correction since the 2008 low. Otherwise, it’s been a steady upward climb since then. 2018 sales were off primarily due to a perfect storm of factors including the Tax Reform SALT cap, quadruple interest rates hikes, and a tough fourth quarter on Wall Street. Despite strong 2nd and 3rd sales quarters, buyers got the jitters as we ended the year. Whispers on Wall Street about reduced bonus pools due to global trade tensions and lower third quarter earnings reflect the nervousness of buyers as we rounded the year. I see it as a market correction which was exaggerated by unusual factors. All markets correct, including real estate. Looking ahead to 2019, we will continue to be in a challenging market, price-wise, but savvy sellers who adjust to the current market will find a steady stream of ready, qualified buyers. Three of my client sellers just went into contract, joining 34 other Scarsdale sellers currently in contract. So 2019 appears to be off to a good start!”
