It’s a Sellers Market on Long Island – Home prices are up 8.7%


If you have been thinking about selling your home, now is the time! The Long Island housing market is alive and well.

Home prices are up 8.7%!

According to the Multiple Listing Service of Long Island, the January 2017 closed median home price for Long Island, which includes Nassau, Suffolk, and Queens housing data, was $420,000 representing an 8.7% increase over last year.

Also, the total amount of residential inventory is down almost 20%. Meaning, there are 20% less homes on the market than there were last year. It's a classic case of supply and demand. There is a higher demand for homes, than there are actual homes for sale.

Long Island home buyers are out, mortgage rates are still low and inventory is shrinking…making it a great time to sell.
