New Yorkers may be getting set to return to their Manhattan offices, but demand for Westchester’s suburban homes is still on fire.

Completed sales of single- and multifamily houses, co-ops and condos totaled 2,489 in the first quarter, up 37% from a year earlier, appraiser Miller Samuel Inc. and brokerage Douglas Elliman Real Estate said in a report Thursday. The deals pushed the supply of listings in the county down 17% to 2,533, the fewest since the end of 2001.
