Boston Area Luxury Marketing Report Jan 2020

Boston Area Luxury Marketing Report Jan 2020. I gather information from several sources for this report. I include the towns I mostly work in, Boston, MA; Newton, MA; Weston, MA; Wayland, MA; Milton, MA; Dedham, MA; Westwood, MA. Information comes from Institute for Luxury Home Marketing where I am a Million Dollar Guild Member in good standing, and MLSPIN the local Multiple Listing Service in this area. All reports are based on trailing statistics. The Dec stats will be in sometime later this month.

Luxury, as defined by the Institute is the to 10% of all properties on the market at any given time. For the purposes of this month listed the price to get into this select club is $1,950,000. Any property below that price would not be considered luxury for this report. Many homes below this price would be considered luxurious in most instances, just not in the real estate sense.

In the MLS for the last 30 days there are 144 properties in these towns that fit this designation.Single Family Active Listings: 72 Median Liv. Area SqFt: 6,262 Median List $: $3,287,500 Median List $/SqFt: $561 Median DOM: 125. The DOM, days on market, are always longer for these properties because there are fewer buyers at this level. 

Single Family Under Agreement Listings: 14 Median Liv. Area SqFt: 5,250 Median List $: $2,549,000 Median List $/SqFt: $482 Median DOM: 85.5 Median DTO: 71.5

Single Family Sold Listings: 18 Median Liv. Area SqFt: 5,782 Median List $: $2,872,500 Median List $/SqFt: $494 Median DOM: 77.5 Median DTO: 59 Median Sale $: $2,695,585 Median Sale $/SqFt: $469

From the last two collection of stats we see 14 to 18 properties a month going making this a Buyer's Market with so much competition and more than 6 months of inventory. Getting Luxury properties sold in a competing market like this demands a professional agent who understands how to market these properties.

Single Family Expired Listings: 18 Median Liv. Area SqFt: 5,954 Median List $: $3,094,950 Median List $/SqFt: $506 Median DOM: 154

Single Family Canceled Listings: 11 Median Liv. Area SqFt: 5,200 Median List $: $3,049,000 Median List $/SqFt: $635 Median DOM: 71

When a property goes too long on the market the buyers often wonder what is wrong. Make sure your Realtor® has a real sense of what to do, who is going to be the target audience and how the agent is going to connect with them. This has been the Boston Area Luxury Marketing Report Jan 2020

Lise Howe not only town to town, but neighborhood to neighborhood and I have to say, week to week, right?

Grant Schneider I wouldn't be surprised at all knowing your area just North of the City.
