YTD 9/30/2016 Bronxville Village single family sales (not including townhouses) totaled 38 closed transactions. This level of activity would seem to indicate that we are on track to reach the 2015 total of 45 homes sold. A closer look indicates that that will not happen since there are only 4 homes in contract as of mid-October which would point to a total of 42 transactions for the year, the lowest level of activity since 2011.
There is also a notable slowdown in showing activity of village homes since September 1st. In some less expensive markets that slowdown in activity is due to a lack of inventory. That is not the case in the Village where there are 26 homes available as of October 28th. This is a trend that is being seen in many upscale communities. Bronxville’s median price for the 38 transactions that have closed year to date is just over $2,500,000 which is slightly higher than the median price in 2015. At this point we are not seeing any price depreciation.

Year to date median price of $807,500 is right in line with the prior two years.
