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/

About the Author

I'm a top-performing Realtor and the founder of Aviator Properties Team at Coldwell Banker Realty, the world's premier real estate brokerage. With over 20 years of business experience and a proven track record of success, I help clients buy, sell, and invest in extraordinary properties throughout Boston and Metro West. Based in Chestnut Hill, I operate out of Coldwell Banker Brookline and my home office in Newton, MA.

I have a broad range of expertise covering new construction luxury homes, antique historic homes, high-performance passive homes, multifamily investment properties, condos, townhouses, and single-family houses. My clients have benefited from this diverse background and my ability to decipher trends and provide strategic guidance on the ever-changing real estate market. From first-time homebuyers to seasoned investors, I am committed to delivering exceptional service and successful outcomes for each of my clients.

My experience is not limited to real estate. Previous to becoming a Realtor, I worked for a decade in TV production, earned my MBA at Babson College in Wellesley, and founded and served as CEO of my Boston-based startup, Mimoco, merging consumer products, toys, electronics, licensing, and content creation generating more than $30M in sales.

As an entrepreneurial problem solver, I bring a unique approach to real estate that draws upon my cross-functional skill set in finance, development, management, sales, marketing, and negotiation. My clients describe me as overly organized, detail-oriented, analytical, and a communicative professional who is trusted in delivering favorable results and creating win-win situations.

When I'm not helping clients achieve their real estate goals, I am a dedicated husband and father of two teenage children (and two crazy cats). In my free time, I enjoy playing tennis, drone photography, live music, and exploring the world through travel. As a private pilot, I also love to take to the skies and find new perspectives.

As your mission-driven co-pilot, I promise to go above and beyond to elevate your real estate experience to the highest level with the least amount of stress. Let me be your secret weapon in your home buying or selling mission. I value my clients and look forward to sharing my passion for winning at real estate with you!
