Pleasantville Real Estate Market, 2nd Quarter 2011

Pleasantville’s real estate market for the second quarter of 2011 is an analysis of single family home activity for the period April 1, 2011 to June 30, 2011 for the Pleasantville school district. All information is derived from the Empire Access MLS. 

For the second quarter of 2011, Pleasantville had 12 closings at a median price of $445,000.

For the same period in 2010, there were 13 closings at a median price of $535,000. 

That is a significant drop in median price. To appreciate how far down prices have come, in 2004, there were 22 closings at a median price of $647,500. From the peak, Pleasantville is down over $200,000 in median price. 

There are 72 homes for sale now at a median asking price of $604,200. That is almost 2 years of inventory. 

The light at the end of the tunnel for the area is on the homes currently under contract: 9 homes are under contract, and they have a median asking price of $719,000. 

Remember, we are measuring quarters here, not single months, so the likelihood of an anomaly is far smaller. That high median price for the contracted homes is real, it is significant, and it is good news.
