Westchester condominiums and cooperatives also enjoyed median price increases of 5.3 percent and 3.9 percent respectively.

Orange County posted a second quarter single-family median price of $235,000, an increase of 5.6 percent from last year. Rockland County’s median price at $441,387 represented a 2.6 percent increase and Putnam County’s median price at $345,000 was a significant 9.9 percent increase over last year.
