2023 Westport Real Estate Market Highlights:


Stable Prices: The average sales price for single-family homes was $2,380,204, a modest increase of 0.65% from year end of 2022.

Reduced Sales: There was a 24.8% decrease in closed sales, with 327 homes sold in 2023.

Lower Supply: The inventory supply for months ended at just 1.7 months, down 22.7% from 2022, suggesting possible price increases.


Impact of Rising Interest Rates:


A key factor in 2023 was the significant increase in interest rates, peaking at over 8% in October, the highest in 23 years. This rise, more than doubling since early 2022, has both deterred potential buyers and led sellers to hold onto properties acquired at more favorable rates.
