 Trumbull CT home sales for March 2015 showed a 32% decrease in sales from the same period last year no doubt still reeling from the exceptionally harsh winter.  Historically, Trumbull registers the highest number of sales in the months of June through August, so with the warmer weather around the corner and more buyers wanting to get into their homes before the next school year, the next few months should make up for the lackluster sales in the previous few months.  On the plus side,  the average listing and selling prices for March went UP 16% and 14% respectively as compared to March 2014.   The median home price was flat with a 1% decrease. Days on the market went up 18%.   The market absorption rate came in at a whopping 12 months which is statistically  buried in a buyer's market....

The cars line up each night, tune their car radios in to FM 97.3 and sit back and watch in awe as the lights on the house on MacDonald Road synchronize and pulsate with popular holiday tunes.   As I drove up the other night about 11 p.m.  I had to pull up behind about 10 other cars and just uttered an 'OMG' as I saw all the lights from a distance.  As I moved closer I was mesmerized by the LIGHTS, manger, LIGHTS, ferris wheel, LIGHTS, huge NOEL sign, LIGHTS, colors, LIGHTS and wondering how long it took to set this up and what everyone else thinks... how much does this cost?   Here's a 1:26 teaser of Mariah Carey's 'All I Want For Christmas.'  Be sure to watch it to the end and note the cool 'movement' of the trees on the lawn.    **NOTE: Youtube flagged me for copyright infringement b...
