Recap of Short Sales in Newtown, CT for 2011

Recap of Short Sales in Newtown, CT for 2011  Over the course of 2011, we posted several blog entries about the status of short sales in Newtown, CT.  With the advent of the New Year, we thought a recap of this segment of this local real estate market would be in order.

In the table below, we have provided both 2011 and 2010 short sale information for a comparison.

  2010 2011
Sold Throughout the Year 25 14
Pending Sale At Year End  4 5
Actively Listed at Year End  17

25

It's interesting to see that the number of sold short sales decreased in 2011 and the number of actively listed short sales increased.  The numbers pretty much flip flopped.  We attribute this change to buyers being less willing to wait an indefinate period of time for banks to approve the short sale.  Depending on the lender, the approval process can take a few months or a year - you never know.
