How does this affect pricing? Median pricing YTD is up 15.5% from 2018, up 18% from 2019 and up 10% from 2020. The current median price in Westchester is $737,000 and if pricing remains at that level for the rest of the year, it would be the highest median price ever in the County.

Real estate is a supply-demand marketplace and we've reviewed pricing and sales; how is inventory? The YTD 2021 inventory numbers are down more than 50% from 2018 and 2019 and down more than 30% from 2020. Simply put, there are not enough homes for sale to satisfy all of the buyers. This has to be balanced with pricing, though. When sellers get greedy and put their asking prices too high, buyers don't bid. Buyers are price-sensitive! I have noticed a lot of price reductions recently and I expect that to continue as we head into the summer. 
Remember that this is a snapshot of Westchester County. Each town & school district & neighborhood have activity and pricing levels that vary but the general trend for real estate continues to be very strong. Feel free to contact me for a look at your area (in the past 12 months, I have transacted in 18 different municipalities). 
This is a tricky market and more than ever, buyers and sellers need the guidance of a professional. Whether you are a buyer or a seller, It can be tough to get an accepted offer and keep a deal together! Buyers need help with pricing and structuring a deal, as well as advice on how to work with an appraisal that falls short or a crazy demand from the seller. Sellers have to choose the right buyer (it's not always about getting the most money) and have confidence that that person will be able to complete the transaction.

Single Family Market Snapshot

The market for single family homes in Westchester has been on fire! Inventory is down significantly from 2019 and sales have rebounded strongly. This remains a very competitive market and I don't see that changing until the supply-demand imbalance realigns.
