March, April and May real estate sales in the Town of Stanford

STANFORD — Only five houses and two parcels of land were sold in the last three months in the Town of Stanford. The median price during this period of $515,000 remains below last summer’s high of $600,000, while the number of monthly closed sales is far below the December’s 2020 peak of 13. These three month results are a reflection of low inventory at the more affordable segment of the market. At the moment there are 25 single family homes for sale in Stanford and only 2 are below $500,000 with 7 over $1,000,000.

As I write, it is about a thousand degrees. And said to be staying there as we slog through this existential climate change, which I believe used to be known as summer. I was going to write about new and exciting developments in the pizza world, but probably no one south of the Nordkapp is going to turn on an oven much before October if this keeps up.
