Greenwich Real Estate Report: July 10-July 17, 2020

We have all heard about New Yorkers flocking to Greenwich since the pandemic began. Most were looking for short term and summer rentals, hoping that by September, Covid-19 would be a thing of the past. Instead, many of those NYC families are now scrambling to find either long term rentals or they are buying homes, often they’re cash deals for quick closings so they can get in before school starts.

Some say they’ll keep their NYC apartments in hopes of returning one day. Those who can afford to have 2 homes, like the idea of having a country home to escape to anytime they need or want to get out of the city while many are abandoning NYC altogether.

It’s a seller’s market, demand is high yet inventory is low, at times resulting in biding wars as we see home prices climb.

What about school? I’ve heard a range of plans from enrolling their kids in local public schools or local private schools to keeping their kids enrolled in their NYC schools and driving them into the city 2 days a week until schools shut down again.

Clients often ask me about the process of enrolling their children in Greenwich Public Schools. You need to be a Greenwich resident before you can register. You’ll also need to provide the following information:

  • Child’s birth certificate
  • Immunization record
  • Two forms of proof of residency

The increased demand from NYC families moving to Greenwich and surrounding areas probably won’t slow down soon so if you have been considering selling your home, this is a great time to do so. Reach out to your agent and ask what your house is worth as well as what you need to do to prepare your house for a sale.
