We're taking a look at the real estate market between October 11th and the 17th in the suburbs north of Boston, specifically Middlesex and Essex counties, for single-family homes and condominiums. So last week we had 2,955 homes available on the market, a slight increase of 2% compared to what we saw the week before. We had 755 new homes come on the market last week, no significant change from the week before. We did have 646 homes go pending that is a decrease of 13% compared to what we saw the week before. Outside of holiday weeks we've seen numbers closer to 750 homes go pending every week. So this is the first time in awhile that we've seen the numbers drop under 700. Overall 22% of the market did get absorbed through pending listings. The week before it was 26% of the market. However, it still remains a strong seller's market. If you are considering buying a home, hang in there. However, keep in mind that we are still seeing multiple offers and the right homes are going for over asking. If you are considering a move to the suburbs north of Boston give us a call at 617-275-3379 or contact us here.
