Swampscott Q1 Housing Market by the Numbers
This report gives a picture of the Swampscott Q1 Housing Market by the Numbers, followed by a snapshot of current inventory compared with a year ago, a comparison which shows a huge drop.
Median Prices and Sales
Sales of both SFHs and condos were down slightly from last year, while the median price for both categories increased somewhat. Always remember that quarterly numbers can be – and frequently are – volatile, especially during the winter months. We will get a truer picture of the underlying market trends when we get the numbers for the first half of the year.
The big story is the shortness of inventory compared with a year ago. The number of SFHs for sale under $500,000 is just 5 compared with 19 a year ago. Overall inventory for both SFHs and condos is about half that of a year ago.
