The Summer is just about half over and I feel tremendously unexcited by the state of the Babylon real estate market. I still check MLS every day for new listings, but what I see is pretty disheartening. Homes new to the market are being priced at levels that make me question the judgment of the listing agents. Some of these houses are nice and are sized right for our soon-to-be-expanded family, but the prices they’re asking are just beyond belief.

We’re sitting at 106 total homes listed on MLS for Babylon. That’s quite a few homes for sale and there’s not much action. There seemed to be a flurry of purchases and maybe a bit of a dead cat bounce, but I think that’s tailed off now.

Homes in Babylon

  • Total: 106
  • Babylon School District: 69
  • BSD and Under 600K: 43
  • Condos/Coops:13

We’re still considering making an offer on 47 Frederick. The house needs a ton of work, so our offer would be considerably less than the asking price. The listing agent said that they had an offer already, but the property still remains listed.

The other option is to get a storage unit to put a bunch of the clothes, books and extra furniture we have cluttering up apartment and make room for the baby and her stuff before she arrives.
