“The demand is insane," one suburban realtor told The New York Times.

According to Miller Samuel Real Estate Appraisers & Consultants:

  • Westchester County saw a 112 percent increase in home sales in July.
  • In Connecticut, Fairfield County saw a 73-percent increase July home sales.
  • Farther north of the city, Putnam and Dutchess counties both saw double-digit percent increases.

A three-acre property with a pool listed for $985,000 in the Hudson Valley received four all-cash bids within a day of having 14 showings, according to The New York Times report.
