The sales of single-family homes in Massachusetts increased 33 percent last month, to 2,350, while condo sales were also up by 18 percent, to 892, according to the Warren Group.
The pricing picture is a little more mixed. Median single-family home prices fell last month by 3 percent, while condo prices increased by 4.7 percent.
But the key seems to be that homes are moving on the market, suggesting recovery within the housing industry, though it’s not a full and robust recovery. Tim Warren, head of Warren Group, notes that sales have now increased in seven out of the last eight months in Massachusetts.
