This is for single family home activity in the Ossining school district for June of 2010. All information is derived from the Westchester-Putnam Multiple Listing Service.
The numbers are far better for June 2010 than they were in June 2009 for Ossining. In May 2009, there were 13 sales at a median price of $410,000. Therefore, the volume is up 45% and the median price is up almost $19,000. As I said last month, I would not call this appreciation as much as I would the weeding out of distressed fire sales and foreclosures.
Available inventory is healthy (138), with less than a year’s worth of homes active on the market. 21 homes are under contract, so July and August promise to be active months as well.
Ossining just completed one of the county’s most impressive public libraries, with tens of thousands of modern square footage devoted to knowledge and learning. It is am impressive place. The village of Ossining also has one of the best public works departments you’ll ever find. Quality of life here is high, and I’m not saying that jusy because I grew up in Ossining.
