Westport, CT Real Estate Market Update, DECEMBER 2023


Westport homeowners,

Our December real estate market figures are in, and our market is slowing ever so slightly – though it depends on which part of the market you’re in: mint condition and new construction homes are doing great. Fixer-uppers are slowing down just a bit, because of high construction costs and mortgage rates. Our buyers do not want to use their hard-earned cash to fix up their new house, so if your house is mint condition or new construction, now may be a great time for you to take advantage of the market. As a courtesy, I would be happy to come over and let you know if you’re working with a mint condition house or a fixer-upper, and how to strategically place you in the current market.

Sitting down with a top realtor is vital in helping you understand your options. If you’d like to know what’s going on in your part of Westport, or you’re looking for any further detailed analysis, feel free to call, text, or email me – I’d love to have a personal conversation with you. If you like what you see and hear in my videos, just subscribe above!
