November 2018 Greater Boston Real Estate Market Trends

Appreciating home prices, increased inventory of homes for sale and a strong buyer population helped the detached single-family home market reach a record high for units sold during the month of November, according to data released by the Greater Boston Association of REALTORS® (GBAR).

Last month, a total of 1,214 single-family detached homes were sold in metropolitan Boston, which set a historical high sales total for the month and is a 4.9 percent increase on the 1,157 homes sold in November 2017.

The combination of a slower sales pace and a steady increase in the number of homes for sale in metropolitan Boston helped to create a more balanced housing market and improved opportunity for buyers entering the residential housing market during October, according to data released by the Greater Boston Association of REALTORS® (GBAR).

May 2018 Greater Boston Real Estate Market Trends

Steady price appreciation, rising interest rates and a shortage of homes for sale in Greater Boston resulted in slower sales of single-family homes and condominiums in May according to data released by the Greater Boston Association of REALTORS® (GBAR).

Sales of single-family detached homes experienced a modest 2.4 percent decline in year-over-year sales in May, as 1,217 homes were sold compared to 1,247 homes sold in May 2017. Despite this softening of sales, this was the fifth highest sales volume on record for the month of May and reflects a 43 percent increase over the 853 homes sold in April. The condo market had a similar cooling in sales volume as 1,060 units were sold last month, which compared to 1,091 condos sold in May 2017 is a 2.8 percent decrease. This was the eighth highest condo sales volume in May and reflects a 23 percent gain in units sold from 859 one month earlier.
