Overall the Capital Region experienced a 36.3% increase in closed sales for the month of November in comparison to the same time last year. Rensselaer County faired extremely well with a 74.6% increase while none of the six counties listed dropped this month. While the increase in closed sales is positive, the contracts of sales increased in the month of November for the sixth month in a row. There were 544 signed purchase agreements in the month of November, up 10.6% from a year ago.

The median sale price for most counties has dropped across the board but the overall softening can be attributed to the first-time home buyers tax credit and the large number of first-time home buyers.
