WPCNR REALTY REALITY. From Houlihan-Lawrence. October 6, 2021:

Driven by historically low inventory levels and persistent buyer demand, 2021 is proving to be an extremely strong year for single-family home sales in Westchester, according to the Houlihan Lawrence Westchester Putnam & Dutchess Q3 Market Report released today.

Greater White Plains

(Greenburgh, Valhalla and White Plains)

Homes Sold: Up 28%

Median Sale Price: Up 3%

In Westchester County, sales have increased 28% this year and 8% in Q3, with lower Westchester standing out with an increase of 39% year-to-date and 24% in Q3.

The lack of inventory combined with strong demand has resulted in a decline in pending sales in the third quarter and an increase in median sales price with buyers often competing for the same properties.

The median sale price increased in Q3 by 6% in Westchester County, 14% in Putnam County, and 18% in Dutchess County.  While it is an excellent time to list a home, pricing is critical as buyers have become more discerning as the urgency at the beginning of the pandemic has waned.

“While New York City is offering attractive pricing and experiencing increased buyer activity, helping to fuel its recovery, many buyers desire more square footage, outdoor space, and the respite that our counties offer,” said Liz Nunan, President and CEO of Houlihan Lawrence. “It is yet to be determined what percentage of the workforce will continue to work from home, be it full-time or part-time, but the ability to do so comfortably remains top of mind for today’s buyers.”
