Homes for Sale and the Current Real Estate Market Activity in Ashford, Andover, Pomfret, Woodstock and Windham Ct  from 11/22/09 – 11/30-09

We are tracking the local eastern Connecticut residential real estate activity to keep you up-to-date on the real estate market, and below are the statistics for the past week.

Ashford Ct

Ashford Ct saw one home come on the market as a new listing, priced below 300K, and one home went under deposit, also priced under 300K.

Andover Ct

Andover Ct had 3 homes come on the market as new listings with 1 priced above 300K.  One home, priced over 300K, went under deposit and one home priced below 300K went under deposit.

Pomfret Ct

Three homes on the market in Pomfret Ct had their listings expire, 2 were priced above 300K, there was no other residential real estate activity.

Woodstock Ct

Woodstock Ct had one home, priced below 300K, go under deposit, there were no new homes listed last week.  Ten homes expired, which seems to be very high, sometimes at this time of year sellers do take a break from the market in anticipation that the real estate market will be slow during the holiday season and due to the busy time of year.  Tom and I have often found that this is actually a good time to have a home on the market – with a decrease in listings, your home may be the one to catch a buyers eye.  We have tips and marketing strategies to position our clients homes properly in the market, if you have any questions about when to market your home or why it did not sell, give us a call at 860-429-2853 or email us directly at
