Housing price seasonality in Massachusetts
Click on the graph above for a closer look at seasonal variation in median sales prices for single family homes across Massachusetts before making "The Big Move" this Spring, or you could be making a "Big Mistake."
Note, this graph helps explain why median sales prices in Massachusetts are down 9.5 percent from their peak last summer. Inflation-adjusted prices are down even further. Will median housing prices rebound this summer? That depends, in part, on offers made by overeager buyers in coming weeks. Peak sales prices in June reflect offers typically made in April and May. What's our advice? Make sure you're making the "Right Move," and don't mistake a marketing push for a market opportunity. Asking prices will soften after the 4th of July, when it's likely we'll see a record number of listings get the "Big reMove," and savings opportunities increase for the balance of the year.
