The Force is Strong with the Boston Market this Winter (2013)

Given the winters we had over the past couple of years it is understandable that sellers would think the market is slow this time of year.  But our office just has a brisk weekend of Open House attendance – in the pouring rain.  I had 30 groups of people show at this new listing in Waltham and the house is now under agreement.  A few were neighbors, a few were just starting their search, but the rest were serious buyers.  This seems to be the case in all of the Greater Boston market.  So if you are looking to sell your home this year, now is the time to start the process.

To give you an idea of how strong the market is, there are about the same number of Single Family homes on the market in Waltham as this time last year. – 31 vs 30.  But the median price has gone from $494,000 to $615,000 and the average price has gone from $$621,000 to $649,000.  Demand and new construction are driving prices up.
