As we head into 2021, what predictions do you have for the city market - specifically the downtown neighborhoods?

We are now just over a couple of weeks into 2021, and we have already seen about 23% more condos in Boston go under agreement vs. the same period in 2020.  I regularly meet with our agents to gain perspective on the market, and most have told me that this is the busiest January they have ever experienced.

 boston real estate market january 2021

It’s exciting to put a house on the market and to think about making new memories in new spaces. However, despite the anticipation of what’s to come, we can still have deep sentimental attachments to the home we’re leaving behind. Growing emotions can help or hinder a sale depending on how we manage them.

When it comes to the bottom line, homeowners need to know what it takes to avoid costly mistakes when it’s time to move. Being mindful and prepared for the process can help you stay on the right track when selling your house this year.

1. Price Your Home Right

When inventory is low, like it is in the current Boston real estate market, it’s common to think buyers will pay whatever we ask when setting a listing price. Believe it or not,

What are your predictions for the Boston real estate market as we head into 2021?

The reasons people loved living in Boston, or any major metropolitan city for that matter, such as convenience and the overall experiences it provides for its residents, have all been turned upside down since the pandemic hit.  My prediction is that it will take about 12-18 months after a vaccine is widely distributed for the energy and excitement of city living to return.  But, once it

Are Home Prices Headed Toward Bubble Territory? | MyKCM

Talk of a housing bubble is beginning to crop up as home prices have appreciated at a rapid pace this year. This is understandable since the appreciation of residential real estate is well above historic annual averages. According to the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), annual appreciation since 1991 has averaged 3.8%. Here are the latest 2020 appreciation numbers from three reliable sources:

  • FHFA: 7.8%
  • CoreLogic: 7.3%
  • Case-Shiller: 7%

It’s easy to jump to the conclusion that house appreciation is out of control in today’s market. However, we need to put these numbers into context first.

Today, there are over 75 million Millennials and 67 million Gen Z’ers in the U.S., making up a significant number of both current and soon-to-be homebuyers. According to a recent Fannie Mae survey of more than 2,000 of these individuals:

“88% said they are confident they will achieve homeownership someday.”

In addition, the survey also reveals that for younger generations, the motivation to own a home may be more emotional than financial compared to previous

As we head into cooler months and the holiday season, the Boston real estate market historically cools off a bit as well. Nick gives his thoughts on what we can expect this year as well as some tips for staying on top of the latest changes in Boston real estate.

How do you predict the market will trend as we head into cooler months in Boston?

Generally you can expect the real estate market to slow down during the winter months, especially if we get one of those terrible New England winters that makes you want to just sit on your couch with a blanket and binge watch Netflix until April.  With that said, this winter, like most of 2020, might be slightly different.  

There is still lots of demand for housing and with rates still remaining near
