April Home Prices Continue to Soar in Greater Boston

Greater Boston real estate continues to outperform with 1,066 single-family homes sold in April ’21 compared to 897 last April, which is 12.2% year over year growth. However, condos were the big winner, skyrocketing 60.3% to set a new record of 1,220 sales versus 761 last year, obviously then harder hit from the pandemic slowdown.

Pricing, on the other hand, favored single families with nearly 16% year over year price appreciation to $765k, from $660k last April. Condos median price appreciated only 2.8% from $605k to $622k, which indicates more balanced supply and demand for this segment of the real estate market.

“April was the eighth consecutive month of home and condo sales growth, as the median price rose to a record high on top of low inventory levels, according the Greater Boston Association of Realtors’ latest report.” Source, Boston Agent Magazine https://bostonagentmagazine.com/2021/05/21/boston-home-sales-prices-continue-to-soar/

Always striving for service excellence, my clients find me overly organized, highly communicative, thoroughly detail-oriented, a creative problem solver, analytically driven, and thoughtful win-win negotiator. My entrepreneurial approach draws upon a cross-sectional toolkit of finance, development, management, sales, marketing, and negotiation skills to deliver reliably favorable results.

A dedicated husband and father of two kids (and two cats), my hobbies range from RC car and drone racing to the pursuit of live music and world travel, and poking holes in the clouds as a private pilot. I am "always-on" and ready to be your secret weapon in your home buying or selling mission. I prize my clients and look forward to sharing my passion for winning at real estate with you!
