Now that we've begun July, we can take a preliminary look at the June 2009 Sales Trends for Middlesex and Suffolk Counties in Massachusetts. You can view the data below and perform your own analysis, but here are some interesting highlights:
- Highest Median Sales Price: Weston, MA ($1.29m)
- Lowest Median Sales Price: Lowell, MA ($187k)
- Largest sales price increase, year-over-year: Dunstable, MA (+13.10%)
- Largest sales price decrease, year-over-year: Shirley, MA (-30.00%)
Within my local area, Arlington MA has not been affected, median-price wise, by the recent turmoil in the real estate market. The prior period (2007 - 2008) median sales price in Arlington was $476,500 and the current period (2008 - 2009) was also $476,500 - a 0% decline! This was also true for Bedford and Carlisle, MA.
Overall, the Counties' median sales price has dipped over the last year by 8.50%, with the median price going from $410,000 to $375,000.
Check the data below. How did your town fare?
Until next time, peace!
