DOVER — Sales in November of single-family homes in Strafford County experienced their largest percent gain since April.

That’s a sign buyers have confidence they’re getting good deals on the property they’re buying, according to Nathan Dickey, president of the Stafford County Board of Realtors

“It’s super active,” said Dickey, owner/broker of Keller Williams Coast Realty in Portsmouth. “I think we have a few things driving the activity. It’s the lack of inventory, still, and the fact that rates are still good and people are afraid that the rates are going to go up, which I don’t think they really are.”

A monthly trends report from the New Hampshire Association of Realtors shows November’s single-family home sales in Strafford County were up 35.4 percent to $43.2 million, the highest year-over-year percentage increase since April when it was 54.6 percent.

Residential condominium sales increased by 33.3 percent to $5.6 million over the $31.9 million in volume recorded in November 2017.
