Good Economic News

Here's some good economic news from the real estate market. Fairfield County has had an excellent first quarter of 2017 with increases in both sales volume and unit sales compared to the same period last year. Real estate sales in Fairfield County were higher county-wide with dollar volume rising quarter over quarter by 7 percent and unit sales by 9 percent.

Litchfield County just north of us also had a strong performance this quarter. The real estate market saw a 29 percent increase in dollar volume over the first quarter last year and unit sales had a 9 percent increase.

A strong real estate market is a good sign for our overall economy and gives me optimism for continued growth in 2017.
