MAR: Snow affected January sales

The Boston Massachusetts Association of Realtors said the bad weather was to blame for  huge declines in January home sales. Single-family homes put under agreement fell 7.3 percent compared to January 2010, and condo sales fell 12 percent from a year earlier. We don’t necessarily doubt that bad weather hasn’t helped, but it doesn’t explain the entire decline. After all, agreements come after weeks (usually) of listings being on the market.
