Another Big Week of Home Sales As Buyers Seek Homes in the Burbs

Though the COVID crisis initially threatened to cause a dismal year for Scarsdale realtors, the pandemic appears to have had the opposite effect. In March and April, realtors were unable to show homes due to the Governors orders, homeowners were afraid to permit anyone inside and inventory fell due to uncertainty.

However realtors were innovative and learned how to give virtual tours or permit home seekers to go inside homes one at a time. They found an eager customer base in city dwellers who were seeking more space and distance from the virus.

Now agents report that a scarcity of inventory makes for a very competitive market for those wishing to purchase homes in Scarsdale. See what sold this week – including a Murray Hill manse with a pool and tennis court for over $5 million.
