We just published our report on the Westchester & Putnam County New York housing markets [1]. This is part of an evolving market report series I’ve been writing for Douglas Elliman [2] since 1994.

Key Points


  • Inventory fell to 8-year low.
  • Jump in both number of sales and signed contracts.
  • Housing prices rose above year ago level.
  • Median sales price rose to highest level for second quarter in 8 years.
  • Credit remains tight keeping inventory low.
  • Heavy contract momentum carrying into next quarter.
