Real estate sales statistics for the third quarter are in -- and the Scardale market is looking good. When looking at home sales for the third quarter, it’s no surprise why the Scarsdale school district had to hire several new teachers to staff elementary schools this summer – as school enrollment for 2012-2013 outpaced the demographer’s projections.
Sales data provided by Houlihan Lawrence shows that in the third quarter of 2012, Scarsdale home sales rose to 90 homes which is a 10% increase over third quarter sales of 82 homes in 2011. At the end of the third quarter, the number of total homes sold year-to-date was 178, in comparison to 173 at this time last year. And the good news for those who already live here is that the median price rose as well. Of the homes sold in the third quarter, the median price was $1,330,000 as compared to $1,203,750 in 2011, an 11% increase over last year. Year to date, the median price has increased modestly from $1,300,000 at this time in 2011 to $1,325,000 in 2012.
