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: 206
Back on market (listings that went under agreement but deals fell through): 20
Price changes (almost always downward, but some go up): 118
Under agreements: 99
Off market (variety of reasons, but mostly these are old listings that never sold): 63
ON MARKET DATA:
Total number of listings: 2354 (+ 67)
Average asking price: $666,828 (- $3,000)
Median asking price: $459,000 (- $0)
My opinion: Uptick in under agreements, almost 25% if you want to put a positive spin on it (which I do).
