Housing Inventory drops even further: a breakdown by price

This will come as no surprise to anybody who has been looking for a home to buy, but the number of both Single Family Homes (SFH) and Condos for sale throughout the North Shore, Essex County and Massachusetts as a whole has continued to drop, in many cases sharply, from already low levels a year ago.

First, I’ll show the percentage declines in the different market, followed by a detailed breakdown of inventory by price (note that the percentage change shown in the tables is from 2017 to 2018).
