Boston condos for sale: You need to adapt to the changing market

Without having an increase in new Boston condo for sale listings the continuation of the hot streak, we will be starting over each year. Sure, Boston condo sellers and brokers will use the comps from the previous year, but will the buyers?

Might as well if prices aren’t going up much.

The Biggest Fear

Home sellers have had huge gains in equity, and if they have to give some back it won’t hurt much – and some will give more than others. A few low sales in the off-season will thwart the idea that comps from the first-half of the year are sustainable.
