Massachusett's Real Estate Market, Acton-Concord Area

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Keller Williams Boston Northwest
The local and national news will report on the home sales market. Where can you find local real estate market statistics? How do you know if the rate of home sales is increasing or decreasing in your area?

I look at the local numbers every month. The chart below shows combined numbers for Acton, Bedford, Boxborough, Carlisle, Concord, Hudson, Lincoln, Maynard, Stow and Sudbury. The region experienced a year over year decline in home sales for the month of May. On a year-to-year basis, the number of single family homes that went under contract are also down.

Statistical Snapshot

Acton  12 16 9
Bedford 15 3 4
Boxboro 1 1 1
Carlisle 7 2 2
Concord 13 21 13
Hudson 11 9 8
Lincoln 6 4 2
Maynard 4 11 13

Sudbury 16 8 11

How do the numbers compare on a town to town basis? Three towns, Sudbury, Bedford and Maynard saw sales increases over May 2008. The real estate market in Massachusetts is actually subject to fairly dramatic shifts, depending upon the season. Sales are typically strongest in the spring and summer months. In June, we will get a clearer picture of the strength or weakness of the market when we look at quarterly and year to date figures. All real estate is local. Get to know what is happening in your town.

With favorable interest rates, low prices, and the first-time homebuyer tax credit, is something holding you back? For help with interest rates and the tax credit.
