Newtown, CT Real Estate Statistics - As of 11/20/08

12 New Lebbon Rd, Newtown, CT

I was going to blog about Prudential Connecticut Realty's Third Quarter Real Estate Report.  The report is broken out into two sections: Single Family Homes and Condominiums.  Under each section is every town along with a year over year comparison of the Days on Market, Median Sales Price, # of homes sold and the percentage change for each.  It's a really informative report which you can view by clicking here.

I thought it would be fun to look at the Greater Fairfield County Multiple Listing Service (MLS) for the town of Newtown as of today.  The MLS changes contunually so this is a snapshot is time.  Here goes:

As of this moment, there are 272 actively listed homes for sale in Newtown whose prices range from $49,900 for a mobile home to $1,999,000 for a Deck-Style home on 19.19 acres.  Houses that are not mobile homes start at $154,900.  There are seven homes that are marked as being under depositTen homes are marked as pending sale - which means a contract of sale has been signed.  Four homes have been sold in Newtown since November 1, 2008.

The homes that have sold so far this month are:

Property Address Sold Price Closed Date
55  Sugar Street $26,500 11/07/2008 
12  Carol Ann Dr $300,000 11/19/2008 
137 Great Quarter Rd $345,000 11/04/2008 
12  New Lebbon Rd $440,000* 11/07/2008 

*12 New Lebbon Road was a home that we had listed for sale. 

Earlier today, I heard that a local attorney had three real estate closings scheduled for today.  So, the numbers above will be changing.
