This week we take a look at Weston single-family home sales during this year's April through September, spring/summer-selling season. In the face of a doleful national market, the Weston picture, much like that of Westport, is one of improving sales volume and prices that are modestly higher than the same period last year.

According to the Consolidated Multiple Listing Service, 65 single-family homes sold in Weston during the period, a 20 percent increase from the 54 sales during the same period in 2009. Overall prices were higher. The average sales price in Weston during the period was $985,965, up 1.3 percent from the $972,972 average in 2009. The median sales price during the period was $850,000, a 4.3 percent increase from the $815,000 median price last year.
