January 2020 Real Estate Market Update for the Suburbs North of Boston

 

“Bidding wars are coming back,” said Linda O’Koniewski, CEO, Leading Edge. “While the market softened in the last half of 2019, low inventory remains a challenge, and as long as mortgage rates stay low, I expect sellers to continue to be in the driver’s seat. Buyers face increased competition in many pockets.  Hot neighborhoods like Melrose and Arlington are already experiencing this uptick in competitive offers and we haven’t even hit the busy season yet. If you’re thinking of selling, now is the time to begin preparing your home for the Spring market. Trash day and recycling day are holidays for those who need to declutter.”

If you're considering a move in the suburbs north of Boston we'd love to hear from you!

A Look Back at 2019

 

What a year!  

We recently spent some time looking back at all of the fun we had and the many hours of hard work that went into the past year.  We hosted a few client events and loved re-connecting with everyone, helped numerous buyers and sellers, worked with several local business for our Community Spotlight videos and added two new team members.  We are so thankful to our clients, family and friends for supporting us!  

Check out the video below for a quick look back at 2019 for The Ternullo Team!

North of Boston December 2019 Real Estate Market Update

 

“Prices are flat-lining,” said Linda O’Koniewski, CEO, Leading Edge. “Cambridge saw the most exuberant growth into 2019 but condo prices in Cambridge are the same as they were last year. The condo growth spurt in South Boston has soured prices in that neighborhood by nearly 6%.  Arlington and Melrose captured headlines for being the hottest towns in the country.  Prices have remained fairly stable year-over-year in both those towns.  We are going to return to normal appreciation, 2-3%, not the double-digit historic rise in prices we’ve experienced since 2012.  In every town and neighborhood there is a price band that attracts the most buyers, we call it the sweet spot. Throughout Greater Boston, those sweet spots are still tight for inventory and continue to fetch competition if priced on the money.”

North of Boston November 2019 Real Estate Market Update

“For the first time, median home prices cracked $400,000 in Massachusetts and are now at $409,000, which doesn’t make sense to anyone looking for homes in Greater Boston,” reports Linda O’Koniewski, CEO, Leading Edge. “The average property in the Berkshires is $217,000, while purchasing a home in Middlesex County averages $570,000, and Suffolk county is clocking in at an additional $18,000. Swanky Nantucket is $1,520,000, and Martha’s Vineyard is just over half that at $831,000. We see the same disparity in prices from town to town and neighborhood to neighborhood within and beyond Route 128.

“While so many home buyers put their house hunt on hold for the holidays, this is always the best time of the year to buy. Look for properties that were not snatched up when they launched on the market and have been languishing. They are likely over-priced and those sellers may be more realistic when faced with a fair offer,” advises O’Koniewski.

October sales of single-family homes in the Leading Edge service area decreased -14.7% year-over-year. Inventory decreased -23.1%. The number of days on market over the last 12 months increased +9.1% while median sale prices remain up +1.6% at $625,000.
