The Warren Group is reporting that Massachusetts home sales in November were up 13 percent, a seemingly impressive number.
But it turns out the month as a whole was still comparatively weak, with 3,253 homes sold, while prices fell year-over-year by 8 percent.
Condo sales were up 7.6 percent, while prices dipped 1 percent, according to Warren Group data.
So what to make of all the numbers? Well, at least home sales are improving and they’re helping relieve the glut of houses on the market. It isn’t spelled out in the article, but we also suspect some sub-markets within the state are doing far better, while other sub-markets within the state are dragging down overall numbers.
OK, so we’re trying to shine a sneaker. But there is some good news.
