2 minutes, 40 seconds Read

HUDSON VALLEY, NY — The residential real estate market in part of the Hudson Valley was characterized by buyer demand in the first quarter of 2024, according to the Houlihan Lawrence Westchester-Putnam-Dutchess Q1 Market Report released Tuesday.

That, coupled with historically low inventory levels, continues to drive prices upward in most segments, the report said.

It was visible at both ends of the valley. Right over the border from New York City, the number of homes sold was down 17 percent from the first quarter of 2023, while the median sales price was up 17 percent, according to the report. In the northwest corner of Dutchess County, the number of homes sold was down 25 percent while the median sales price was up 25 percent.

Overall conditions remain favorable for sellers and very challenging for buyers, according to the report.

“Multiple offers remain a common occurrence,” said Houlihan Lawrence President & CEO Liz Nunan.

Due to low inventory, home sales were lower for the quarter in most of the markets in areas north of NYC; although northern Westchester experienced a slight uptick in inventory during Q1 2024, according to the report. Inventory was available there in the higher price ranges.

Median sale prices were higher in all the markets.
