Westport, CT Real Estate Market Update, November 2022



Hi Westport, CT homeowners! I’m here with the November 2022 Westport real estate market update. Our numbers are in and yes, everything continues to be the same. Our average sales price and our median sales price are 28% and 29% respectively. Our sales so far this year are down 22%, so it’d be nice to see how we close next year, but I think we’re going to close pretty much the way we are. I have been watching price reductions, and homes going pending: with the price reductions, nationally, 23% of homes in the last two weeks have taken a price reduction, while here in Westport of the 115 homes that we have active currently, only 5 have had a price reduction – so less than 5% are being reduced, versus nationally 23% so that gives you an idea of what’s going on in our local Westport housing market.

I’d love to chat with you if you want to know about what’s going on in your part of the market, and if you like what you see and hear, feel free to subscribe below!
