Will Sales Break Records in 2021? 17 Homes Sell this Week

With the rush to move in before the first day of school, another 17 homes sold this week, ranging in price from $915,000 to $3.1mm. Will this trend continue into the fall and will Scarsdale home sales break records in 2021? Here’s what Scarsdale realtor Elise Flagg says about the market:

“Yes this has been an exceptional year in many ways. In this low inventory real estate market we are finding that houses priced to show value come on the market mid-week, go through the weekend and very often go to best and highest offers on Monday. This pandemic phenomenon is one we have never experienced to this extent.

Can we reach the projected number of 420? That number does seem quite high though we will beat last year's sales."

Current Numbers:

-Right now there are 60 properties on the market compared to 123 at this time last year, a 51.2% decrease.

-There are now 74 pending sales down from 89 at this time last year, a 16.9% decrease.

-Year to date, 252 homes sold in Scarsdale, vs. 148 at this time last year, an increase of 70.3%.

-The median price in Scarsdale has risen 15.5%, from $1,530,000 to $1,767,500.

Here are the 17 homes that sold this week:
