Beverly Third Quarter Housing Review
Beverly was named one of the “top spots to live” by the Boston Globe last year and the housing market in Beverly has seen very limited supply for some time. It is somewhat surprising, therefore, that the market remains below prior peak levels. Perhaps 2015 will change that. Certainly, the effects of an expanding economy and the recent drop in mortgage rates should help.

Beverly 2013 Housing Review and 2014 Outlook
The Boston Globe named Beverly one of Greater Boston’s “top spots to live” and the real estate market in 2013 reflected this with very tight supply and hot competition for houses.
According to Brad Phillips, Partner/Managing Broker of Harborside Realty’s Beverly office: “homes that were well priced…sold quickly and often with multiple offers” and he expects “more of the same” in 2014.
My inventory reports last year consistently showed Beverly as one of the markets with lowest supply. Low inventory is “the singe largest factor we are dealing with”, says Phillips. “They are plenty of willing, qualifies buyers out there… but there are simply very few choices.”
While sales last year were close to peak levels overall, the median price in Beverly for a Single Family Home (SFH) was still 8% below peak levels. The law of supply and demand suggests that 2014 may well see prices move close to the 2004 peak.
