The 2014 local markets have been relatively steady and similar to 2013 with some ups and downs for individual towns. Early in the year activity lagged, most likely due to the severe winter. It picked up, true to seasonal patterns, in the Spring and Summer. The Fall season has been slightly slow: most likely influenced by external conditions such as stock market, ebola fears, foreign events, the midterm elections and the overall challenges of the Connecticut economy. As some of these factors have passed or settled down we should return to normal patterns. After the end of year holidays, activity generally picks up in the second half of January and slowly grows into the peak Spring season.

If you are considering a sale, while the drop in prices over the last few years may give you pause, remember that most likely you will also be a buyer and the lower prices and those record-low interest rates may not last.
If you are considering a buy, remember that interest rates are still at historic lows. It is a virtual certainty that sooner or later they will go up. A small increase in the interest rate has a disproportionate effect on the size of loan you can afford with a given level of income. Do the numbers yourself by examining the impact of a 1% increase in interest rates on the payments for a 30 year loan. You will find that a 1% increase in interest rates, with approximately the same payment as before, translates into a home price that you can afford that is much less.
