Positive Home Sales Trends for 2020 Expected to Continue Into 2021

6OverlookRoadHere's some good news on the 2020 and 2021 real estate market from Laura Miller, associate broker with Houlihan Lawrence who closed 59 transactions this year, worth $82 million:

The pandemic inspired many NYC residents to head to the suburbs in 2020. This exodus raised the median sale price in Scarsdale around 14% to $1,595,000, sales increased approximately 13% and pending sales are up nearly 95% year over year at this time. Demand across all price points is high except for the market over $5M with 16 active listings, only 3 in contract and 4 sold this year.

In Edgemont, by contrast the median price dropped 4.6% to $1,063,750 but sales increased 33% year over year while pending sales stayed stable. Demand across all price points is high except for the market over $2M with 4 active listings, none in contract and 4 sold this year.

We anticipate a robust Spring market with a continuation of this flight from the city. Buyers see the value of an investment in increased interior square footage for all to live and work comfortably at home plus outdoor space for children to play safely. When homes are priced to show value and are in updated condition, not requiring any renovation other than a little paint, there have been many multiple bidding situations. Buyers are putting a premium on homes where they can move in quickly without having to deal with contractors during the Pandemic. Local sellers are feeling more comfortable showing their homes with the appropriate safety protocols in place so that they can take advantage of this sellers' market and they are finding places to go.
