April 2017 Greater Boston Real Estate Market Trends
A continued shortage of homes for sale and rising prices throughout Greater Boston have softened overall sales of single-family homes and condominiums in April according to data released from the Greater Boston Association of REALTORS® (GBAR).
Sales of single-family detached homes saw a 9.4 percent drop in year-over-year sales in April, as 844 homes were sold compared to the 932 homes sold in April 2016, which is a 9.4 percent drop. This is the ninth highest sales total on record for Greater Boston and is slightly lower than the monthly historical average of 867 homes sold. In the condo market, there were 734 units sold in April 2017, which was an 11.5 percent decrease from the 829 units sold in April 2016. Last month’s condo sales were the tenth highest on record and fell short of the historical monthly average of 797 units sold.
The lack of inventory is continuing to hinder sales activity as there simply aren’t enough homes on the market to satisfy buyer demand. The competition for limited supply of listings is creating multiple offer situations which is driving up prices beyond the reach of some buyers, especially those at the entry level.
