Scarsdale NY housing has been in the cross hairs of the housing recession for a while now. Initially, it was resistant to the correction taking place in other parts of the country. Eventually the forces that had hit other parts of the country so dramatically, came home to roost even in the most resilient areas of Westchester. However, some of the numbers show signs of a bottom being at hand.
The Hartsdale NY housing market is in buyer's market mode. Prices for coops, condos and single family homes all experienced price reductions when compared with the third quarter of the previous year. This was the second year of price reductions for the area. Volume was variable with single-family home sales being down 70% over the previous year while there was a slight increase in the number of coop sales.
