Along with last week's (surprising) news that the United States has been in a recession since....DECEMBER 2007, comes even more shocking news that it is a buyer's market in Metrowest Boston.
For those of you who recently were educated on market absorption rates (click here to read blog post), the following table shows the current market absorption for towns in our service area just outside of Boston.
Ah, but do these statistics mean anything? A closer look will tell. What are the price ranges for single family homes in these towns? Could it be that some single family homes are selling better than others?
For those of you unfamiliar with the Metrowest area, it is composed of more towns than I have listed above, but the majority share the following characteristics:
highly rated schools
excellent highway access
close to commuter rail lines
town centers with shopping, restaurants and services
convenient access to Boston and Cambridge, the High-Tech corridor area of 128 and to Providence
Families with some of the highest income and education levels in the state
But there is also one word missing - diversity in the housing market. Take Wellesley, for example. We have luxury mansions built on huge plots of land, "McMansions" built on smaller lots and 50's Ranch style homes.
So, let's look at Wellesley's market absorption from a different angle
And the lesson to be learned? Wellesley is not the buyer's market that it once seemed to be. With an average YTD sales price of $1,357,000 it is easy to see the price cut - anything under that price is a bargain for Wellesley, anything above and you may as well start looking at comparable homes in Weston, South Natick or Wayland.
The above shows Wellesley's "sweet spot" for the real estate buyer. Do you do this analysis for your buyer or seller clients? Maybe you should.
Do you feel like your office is holding you back from your true potential? Is your broker competing with you for new business? Do you sometimes wish that you could work with an energetic and fun team of seasoned and new agents that enjoy the benefits of being affiliated with an office that provides superior technology; a lucrative compensation package, including profit sharing; company generated buyer and relocation leads; and office management that does not compete with agents for new business?
