Not that We Ever Were in Kansas, but…

February 12, 2010

Homes in Cambridge and Somerville are very much in demand, and moving quickly. Case in point:

  • 41 of the 187 condos listed since the beginning of the year (only six weeks ago) are already under agreement — 19 of these came off the market in ten days or less
  • 7 of the 25 single-families listed so far in 2010 are under agreement — 3 in ten days or less
  • 11 of the 43 multi-families listed this year are under agreement — 5 in ten days or less

Similar trends are being seen in Arlington:

  • 7 of the 19 condos listed this year are either sold or under agreement — 3 in ten days or less
  • 21 of the 37 single-families listed this year are sold or under agreement — 12 in ten days or less
  • 3 of the 4 multi-families listed this year are under agreement — ALL THREE in ten days or less

What This Means for You

If you have a property to sell, now’s a great time to get it on the market — there is pent up demand, and a lot of buyers hoping to take advantage of the federal tax credit.

If you’re a buyer, make sure you’re in a position to act fast when you find a place you love — get pre-approved for a mortgage, line up your buyers’ agent, and get out there and look at homes so you’ll know the market and recognize a good value when you see it!
