    Properties Closed in the Last 7 Days

    There have been 8 properties closed in the last 7 days.

    • Prices ranged from $185,000 for a “fixer upper” in Bay Spring, to a well-appointed brick Tudor on Rumstick Road for $799,000.
    • The median price point across this list is down from its typical position and comes in at $388,500 this week. However, the price per square foot has ticked up a bit from the norm, at $295 per square foot.

    Here is a list of properties “Closed” in the last 7 days and the price at which they were sold. Congratulations to our very own Susan Kostas for having the only property on this list that sold for more than its original asking price. This is further proof that in the current market, if you price properly, market well, and negotiate faithfully on behalf of the seller, it is not uncommon to be able to get at or above the asking price.

    • 115 Rumstick Road: $799,000
    • 134 Ferry Lane: $585,000
    • 8 Palisade Lane: $530,000
