The Least and Most Expensive Properties Sold in Greenwich, Ct During the Government Shut Down

October 30, 2013

Consumer confidence levels slid to their lowest levels since April, WalMart sales tanked, tourists were kept from visiting national parks and monuments. It felt a little like a snow day in Greenwich, keep your head down, jammies on, and hope that at least the plows were working so you could go get some vital vittles if needed.

So what has sold in Greenwich since the shutdown?

Of the 28 single family homes that sold during the shutdown, the least expensive house to sell between October 1-15, was a home that was on the market for 164 days. A 4 bedroom bedroom, 2 bath cape cod house on Pilgrim Drive. (Pemberwick section of Glenville) that is 1,441 sq ft and on .23 acres.  Just darling and sold for $520,000.

On the high end, a home that had a starting price of over $17.5 million sold for $14 million after 467 days on the market. Over 14,900 sq ft and set on 4.52 acres, it had something for everyone including indoor and outdoor pools, a tennis court and more. Nice photos of 135 Taconic Rd.

So, how was the sales activity this year during the shutdown vs a year ago when the government was doing its usual thing? Funny enough, 28 properties sold during the same time period a year ago. Go figure.
