BOSTON’S LOW CONDO INVENTORIES STARTING TO AFFECT POSITIVE SALES:

285 Columbus Back Bay

Time to Put Your Condo on the Market.

There is no doubt that the Boston real estate market continues to boom according to the latest sales figures for the different neighborhoods. The condo market has continued to set sales records with the Back Bay neighborhood leading the way. Sales prices are also breaking records. Condo prices in the downtown market jumped to a new record high in the second quarter of this year for several reasons. A tightening inventory and increased demand for luxury units were partially responsible for the increase in prices. Buyers are looking for new luxury amenities like valet services and concierge services.

In the three month period ending in June, there was a 5.3 % increase in prices over the same period a year ago, according to LINK, a Boston company that tracks condo sales in a 12-neighborhood area. There was a 2.45 increase in the luxury condo market sales between April and June, according to LINK. Overall sales of condos have shown a slight decrease from last year’s sales due to a growing inventory shortage. Real estate professionals are predicting a continuing increase in prices for the foreseeable future due to falling inventories. This situation has caused sales to jump in some of the other Boston neighborhoods in recent months according to Debra Blair, Pres. of LINK. Blair predicts that prices will continue to rise for at least another 3-5 years when inventories are expected to start increasing again.

Brighton had the hottest sales in the $236K – $283K range with 44 sales, Jamaica Plain had 42 sales in the  $330K – $380K range, South Boston had 48 sales in the $493K – $580K range, and the South End had 69 sales in the  $740K – $1.125 range. Back Bay recorded 84 sales that exceeded $1.125M in price. fenway1

Many factors were considered however it appears that when buyers cannot find a home in a particular price range, it is not uncommon for the buyer to consider moving up and spending more, even if it’s in a different neighborhood.
Many Boston real estate professionals agree that most buyers will spend more if the buying opportunity is good, no matter what the neighborhood.
