Amazing Sunset in Fairfield, CT 4-1-14 - right there above the town - it was beautiful! The sunsets out in the desert in the western portion of the country are absolutely stupendous!     This I think would have rivaled most of those.    We do not get gorgeous sunrises or sunsets here in CT very often, but this was one!

Over the past three years, the Fairfield single family real estate market has been improving in number of sales and in prices.  From 2012 to 2013, there was a 5 percent increase in the median sale price ($575,000 vs. $547,000) and a 13% increase in the number of sales (717 vs. 621). The number of Days on Market decreased from 2012, which is good news for home sellers.   Unlike many Fairfield County towns, the number of available homes has not decreased, which is good for home buyers. - See more at: http://www.fairfieldcountyshoreline.com/blog?post=Fairfield-Year-End-Market-Report-2013&xid=040600-02#sthash.l9JVK9lq.dpuf

 David Popoff a seasoned Connecticut Property Manager David Popoff is a Connecticut property manager with over 34 years of various real estate experience. He is also big on training as can be seen from his profile  and he holds many designations.  I contacted David to talk about one of his niches, property management and he gave me invaluable information which readers will find informative. Here are the questions David so graciously addressed:   Is your property management business mostly for second home owners? No, our area is not a vacation get-a-way region; most of our business comes from investment properties or owners who have been relocated out of the area, but, we do offer short term services for weekend homes and short term rentals depending on the owner’s needs and wants.   Do ...

    FAIRFIELD Market Trends Q1 2013   The Fairfield market has shown mixed signs of improving since last year with 8% fewer homes selling this quarter than at the same time last year.  This likely reflects the impact of Hurricane Sandy which damaged 2,000 homes in the town at the end of October.  30% fewer listings on the market has resulted in a reduction in inventory to a 13-14 month supply down from a 17-18 month supply last year.   Slow sales at the high end appear to be the driving force behind the lower average sale price as the median sale price has increased from $445,000 to $535,000.  Another healthy sign is the increase in the List to Sales Price Ratio from 93% to 96%. Last year in Q1 the price range was $120,000 to $2.4 million with a median sale price of $445,000.  19 homes ...

Fairfield Market Trends January 2013   Fairfield is in back in a Buyer’s Market with 6.4 months of inventory after briefly entering a Seller’s Market (the 12 month figure is used for the Absorption Analysis). The impact of Hurricane Sandy at the end of October is reflected in the three months trend numbers. Approximately 2,000 homes in Fairfield sustained some level of damage in Hurricane Sandy. The impact of that storm reduced the number of sales and sale prices. In retrospect, it looks like Fairfield hit bottom in Q1 2012 and a recovery is still underway. Despite the recent 3 month storm-related dip, Fairfield remains a strong, healthy market.

FAIRFIELD Market Trends December 2012 Fairfield is in a Seller’s Market with 5.3 months of inventory (the 12 month figure is used for the Absorption Analysis).  The impact of Hurricane Sandy at the end of October is not yet reflected in these figures as it takes at least 60 days for most single family homes to close.  Approximately 2,000 home sustained some level of damage in Hurricane Sandy.  The impact of that storm should show up in next month’s figures.
