"In Fairfield County, we saw a sharp rise in median sales prices across all property types, with a surge in new contracts and a slightly faster marketing time," said Scott Durkin, Elliman's Chief Operating Officer. "In general, prices were higher than they were a year ago."

Greenwich showed stable conditions from mixed price trends and a slight decline in sales and inventory.  "There was a large decline in luxury listings, which is a great sign as overpriced inventory expired, removing confusion for buyers," said Jonathan Miller, author of the reports.  "Older listings were snapped up, as sellers met buyers in the market.  In addition to more realistic pricing in luxury, Greenwich experienced a jump in condo pricing, along with some mixed results in single family price trends.  Areas such as Byram, Pemberwick and Glenville saw rapid acceleration in the pace of the market."

"In other words," added Durkin, "sales, inventory and price conditions in the Greenwich luxury market showed relative stability, which in itself is an improvement over conditions a year ago."
