Up, Up & Away! Cambridge 3-Year Housing Price Comparison

If you weren’t buying or selling a home in the past few months, you may not be aware at how much Cambridge home prices rose this spring. This was largely a result of our ridiculously low inventory — as of today, there are only 90 properties (singles, multis and condos) on the market in all of Cambridge. That’s compared to 185 this time last year, when we already had an inventory shortage!

Here are some of the sale price changes for a sampling of property types — comparisons are based on YTD sales up to July 6 for the past three years.
