New Haven County Market Trend Long Term:

Here is where the good news ends. Although sale prices have been growing quickly since the market bottomed out in 2012, New Haven County has not yet recovered form the housing bust of the late 2000's. The current median sales price of $215,000 is still 13% below the prices we saw at the peak of the market in 2007.

New Haven County home sale prices still have a way to go before we can call the market fully recovered, however there are options for those who need to sell now, but unfortunately purchased or refinanced at the peak of the market and are still upside down. And for those who can wait it out, the market is certainly headed in the right direction!
