Rockland’s housing market was absolutely stifled in the first quarter by a depleted inventory, which was drove sales down almost 19%. Rockland demand is high, which is why single‑family prices were up across the board: almost 6% on average, over 2% at the median, and a whopping 10% in the price‑per‑square‑foot. Average prices for the year are now up over 4% for single‑family and 1% for condos. If prices keep going up, more homeowners will be tempted into the market, which should help bring sales back up in what is likely to be a torrid spring.
