Northern Westchester Recently Listed as One of the Best Places to Live in the Hudson Valley
According to an article share from Hudson Valley Magazine, homes in Northern Westchester are some of the most desired within the Hudson Valley. Can you guess which towns are hottest?
If one of the towns you guessed is Croton-on-Hudson then you guessed correctly! Realtor Scott Goldman of William Raveis reveals, “without a doubt, Croton-on-Hudson,” citing the village’s schools, access to nature, sense of community, and easy commute to Grand Central.
“Finding a home is very difficult as there is pent-up demand coming from the boroughs and a lack of inventory, making for a seller’s market. Homes are going into bidding wars. Median sales price is $640,000, which is a 33%, increase from 2019, and inventory is down 46%” says Goldman.
Other towns comparable in the “hot zones” are Bedford, Chappaqua, Katonah, North Salem, Pound Ridge, Somers, and Peekskill. With home sales up 41% and inventory down 40%. Countywide for the year, Westchester’s inventory was down 27% while pending sales were up 46%. Many properties were purchased as second homes to be used as a refuge, while the number of primary home purchases rose substantially.
