We're taking a look at the north of Boston real estate markets, specifically Middlesex and Essex counties for single-family homes and condominiums during the week of December 6th through the 12th. Last week, there were 2,150 homes available on the market, an increase of 3% from the week before. New listings decreased by 5.5% with 378 homes coming on the market. 494 homes went pending last week that is an increase of 25% from the week before. Overall, 23% of the market did get absorbed through pending listings which shows it remains a strong seller's market. Last week was one of the better weeks that we've seen since October. So, if you're still looking for a home now is not the time to put your search on pause. Keep looking- and if you're thinking about selling your home over the next 12 months now is the time to come up with a plan. Sooner very well may be better than later for this upcoming year. If you're considering a move to the suburbs north of Boston give us a call at 617-275-3379.
