House values in Westport, CT (Feb 08)

Asked by Thb, Connecticut Wed Feb 18, 2009

What insights can people offer about the true impact of recent economic developments -- layoffs, bonus crunch, etc. -- on house values in Westport, CT? Where does this market stand relative to, say, Q1 2007?

Help the community by answering this question:


The median price of a single family home, sold in Westport, during the first quarter of 2007 was $1,255,000. By fourth quarter 2008, that figure dropped 6%, to $1,179,000. There were 53 unit sales in the final quarter of 2008. Since there is a seasonal affect, the more telling comparison would be with 4th quarter 2007, when 80 units sold.
