December 2016 Greater Boston Real Estate Market Trends

Most of 2016 offered the same monthly housing market highlights. The number of homes for sale was drastically down in year-over-year comparisons, along with days on market and months of supply. Meanwhile, sales and prices were up in most markets. Unemployment rates were low, wages improved and, as the year waned, we completed a contentious presidential election and saw mortgage rates increase, neither of which are expected to have a negative impact on real estate in 2017.

October 2016 Greater Boston Real Estate Market Trends

As we enter the final quarter of 2016, not much has changed since the year began. Market predictions have been, in a word, predictable. A relatively comfortable pace of activity has been maintained thanks to continuing low unemployment and mortgage rates. The one basic drag on market acceleration has been inventory decline. There is little to indicate that the low inventory situation will resolve anytime soon.

Condominium
  • October condo sales DOWN -1.3%
  • Median prices UP +5.3% ($479,238)
  • Condo inventory DOWN -21.2% to 1,616
  • Listings added to the market DOWN -7.8% over last year (1,063 from 1,153 in 2015)
Single-Family
  • October single-family home sales DOWN -15.0%
  • Median prices UP +10.8% ($526,300)
  • Single-family inventory DOWN -26.4% to 2,769
  • Listings added to the market DOWN -16.4% over last year (1,274 from 1,524 in 2015)
