Westchester’s Second Quarter Home Prices Are Up 5%

2013 2nd Quarter From The Westchester Gateway Association of Realtors MLS

2013 2nd Quarter From The Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors MLS

According to the Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors, the median sale price in the 2nd quarter jumped 5% in Westchester County, to $650,000, the highest 2nd quarter increase since 2008. In the region consisting of Westchester, Putnam, Rockland and Orange counties, sales volume is up 24% compared with the 2nd quarter of 2012. The HGAR MLS also reported 3,445 residential real estate closings in the past quarter, with both a 23.8% volume increase in the Westchester county single family home segment and a 27.8% volume increase in the Westchester cooperative housing market. This is viewed as the beginning of a sustained recovery. The low interest rates and increased volume of transactions however has also resulted in a shrinking inventory of homes for sale in the area. Available inventory is down 13.1% over this time last year.
There were 1,425 sales of single-family homes in Westchester in the second quarter, 296 sales of condos, 391 co-op’s and 113 multi-family dwellings. There were 2,202 single-family homes sold in the first six months of 2012 in Westchester, representing a 17.1 increase from last year and the highest figure in the past four years.

Rivertowns Fireworks: Dobbs Ferry, Irvington and Tarrytown

Rivertowns Fireworks
With the 4th of July rapidly approaching, in the Rivertowns of Westchester County NY, here is a quick rundown on what shows can be expected:

Dobbs Ferry will be hosting its fireworks display on July 4th at dark, probably in the vicinity of 9:00 PM. The display will be shot off from the north end of Waterfront Park on the Hudson River. Parking permits are required to park in Waterfront Lot, but those permits must be purchased in advance at village hall. Other than parking, this event is open to the general public. Prior to the show the village is also sponsoring the Thomas Cullen Picnic starting at 3:00 PM, also on the waterfront, parking permits required as well. Entertainment by Joe Rooney. A great way to enjoy a dinner and fireworks show might be at one of the waterfront patios at The Half Moon Restaurant.

The village of Irvington will be having its fireworks show at dark as well, from the north end of Matthiessen Park on the Hudson. This event is limited to Irvington residents for those wishing to enter the park and park passes are required. Parking is never guaranteed for this event, so the best bet might be to park in the village ahead of time and partake in one of the many fine Irvington restaurants for dinner before walking down to the show. Excellent viewing most likely can be also had from Red Hat Restaurant on the Hudson.

The Village of Tarrytown in cooperation with the Village of Sleepy Hollow will have its July 4th fireworks shot off at the General Motors site in Sleepy Hollow. The rain date will be July 5. Pierson Park remains under construction and will not be available to the public as a public viewing area. Scenic Hudson RiverWalk Park will be open, as well as Kingsland Point Park in Sleepy Hollow. The Hudson Harbor property, located just east of the RiverWalk Park and north of West Main Street is not available to the general public for viewing the fireworks. All of the commuter parking lots will be open and available to the public, including the West Main Street commuter parking lot. West Main Street will be closed just west of the West Main Street parking lot. If you can time your reservations correctly, a great viewing spot might be the 2nd floor deck of the Moon River Grill in Sleepy Hollow, overlooking the General Motors property.
