Yorktown is a larger town in north Westchester County between Cortlandt and Somers. It is is very suburban in character- think post-war/baby boom subdivisions with ranches, splits and raised ranches and with larger colonials in the newer developments. It is served primarily by the Yorktown and Lakeland school districts, and it has abundant shopping and parks. Yorktown has always been a popular place to land for southern Westchester and Bronx residents who wanted to move north to the suburbs. Downtown Yorktown Heights is located at the intersections of routes 202 and 118 and is home to the Triangle shopping Center, the iconic Friendly's restaurant, The Pennysaver of northern Westchester, and plenty of other commerce. It is also the site of the Drivers License test course, where the Boss recently passed her driver license test. So we love Yorktown right now.

Yorktown's market was a mixed bag this July. June was very hot with 22 closings, so a cooling off shouldn't be surprising. Median price was certainly up, but the transaction total was a rather lean 8. However, with 25 homes pending sale there is little to worry about.
