Condo Comparison, June 2017

Overall estimates for residential appreciation in the Boston market over the last year is in the range of 11% and Zillow is conservatively predicting around 5% for the next year.  Is this growth sustainable?  Who knows?  What we do know is that the market is cyclical and that what goes up spirals around to a seemingly higher low than the last. Take a look at the graphs below.

Condo Comparison May 2017

“BOSTON – The number of homes and condos sold in Greater Boston slipped a bit in April,” said Timothy Warren, CEO of The Warren Group. “But that is due to the fact that April last year was a gangbuster month with homes rocketing up 35.3 percent and condos gaining 18.7%. These benchmarks were too hard to match.”
Despite record-setting condo prices, sales dipped from April 2016 when there were 1,705 sold in April 2017 compared to 1,724 last year – a decline of 1.1 percent. Median condo prices rose by 3.4 percent, hitting $331,500 – the highest on record for April.  Warren Report, May 23, 2017.
