The Newton Real Estate Market is HOT!

In 2013, the average price of a single family home in Newton broke the $1 million mark!

Last year Newton, Massachusetts experienced another year of major gains in the real estate market. The number of homes sold continued to rise as values increased and the number of days that homes spent on the market dropped dramatically.

Enticed by the still low interest rates, buyers continued the momentum built in 2012, coming out in force after waiting several years until they felt confident we had reached the bottom. This resulted in numerous multiple offers, quick sales, and increases in prices, as our sale inventory remained low. Sale inventory remains extremely low, so we are still seeing quick sales, multiple offer situations, and increases in prices here in Newton.
