-The Number of SOLD listings decreased by 6% to 880 properties with a top sale of $1.7 million at 21 Winding Brook Dr in Saratoga County.
-The Average Sales Price increased by 2% to $317,000 moving the Average Price Per Square Foot up to $174 per square foot.
-The inventory of properties available for sale as measured in months supply stayed flat, ending at a 1.5 months worth of properties for sale. 4-6 months supply is considered balanced, so inventory is very challenging in our market.
