Below is a report of sales and listing activity for the past week. Information is derived from LINK, the online database that is used by most Boston real estate agents.
New listings: 225
Back on market (listings that went under agreement but deals fell through): 28
Price changes (almost always downward, but some go up): 107
Under agreements: 76
Off market (variety of reasons, but mostly these are old listings that never sold): 67
ON MARKET DATA:
Total number of listings: 2287 (+ 63)
Average asking price: $669,405 (- $7,000)
Median asking price: $459,000 (- $8,000)
My opinion: Whoa! People. It’s a slow market. Why is everyone suddenly putting their properties up for sale. 225 new listings??? Maybe it’s all those Fidelity people selling before they move to Rhode Island. And North Carolina. And Puerto Rico.
