Overall the Clinton, Essex and Franklin County real estate market is up 6% from last year for all property types, though residential sales have continued to track closer to 2013 figures than last year’s record-setting year. As predicted, the number of real estate transactions increased throughout the second quarter. Clinton County residential sales volume is up over 40% from the first quarter, and on par with results from 2013.

This can likely be attributed to two main factors. 2014 was a record-setting year in real estate, and our long, drawn-out winter slowed sales activity over the first quarter of 2015. We have experienced an uptick in real estate activity over the last few weeks – as the weather has improved – and we anticipate that the real estate market will rebound over the second quarter.
