Single Family Home Sales YTD – Cambridge, Somerville, Arlington & Medford
Now that the spring real estate market has wound down, and most spring sales have now closed, I thought it would be interesting to take a closer look at what was going on with sales prices this year. We saw sooooo many multiple offer situations this spring, with many listings selling for over asking price — some by just a token amount, but others quite significantly. Here are a few extreme examples:
306 Columbia Street in Cambridge — listed at $625,000 & sold for $740,000
17 Kingston Street in Somerville — listed at $929,000 & sold for $960,000
100 Bay State Road in Arlington — listed at $610,000 & sold for $661,000
2 Hillsboro Road in Medford — listed at $299,900 & sold for $327,400
So here we go – the following data is as of a few days ago when I did the research…
