As the leaves are falling from the trees, it’s time for another update on what’s happening in the real estate market here in Medford, MA. Since most people are looking to buy or sell either a single family, a condo or a multi family home, I’ve separated out what’s happening in each of these markets.
Medford Housing Stats October 2008
So, what do the numbers tell us is happening in the Medford, MA real estate market? They show us that the market is continuing to improve. Two months ago, the city-wide absorption rate was 5.4 months and today it is 4.7 months. Medford’s proximity to Boston, good access to public transportation (which will get even better when the MBTA Green Line comes into town) and our broad range of properties and price ranges continues to help the city weather the current economic times better than many other cities in the country. Yes, our prices have dropped from the high of the market, but the good news for sellers is properties are selling. For buyers, the good news is prices have dropped!
I know I’m a number cruncher, but whether you’re looking to sell a Medford home or buy real estate in the city, I feel it’s very important to have a good handle on exactly what’s happening in the market and where it appears to be heading.
