Top 3 Boston Metro Towns for Appreciation/Depreciation in 2023

Top 3 Appreciating & Weakest Performing Boston Suburb Towns

They said that 2023 was going to be the year that home prices were going to go down. Towns in the Boston Metro market must have missed that memo… Well… Except for one town. 

For this analysis we looked at 16 towns that surrounded and included Boston. Essentially the 95 belt to the South and then going up to Waltham and estimating the same circumference around which brings towns like Medford, Malden and Revere into the analysis. For this analysis, we compared the stats for both single family and condo units combined. We will take a look at the appreciation rates as well as the sales level decreases for each of the top and bottom 3 towns. 

Real quick. My name is Jeff Chubb and I am a retired investment banker turned real estate agent that has sold more than a 1,000 homes. If you have real estate questions, then I am here to help. 

Alright, let's start with the top appreciating towns. 

Waltham, Massachusetts is the third best performing town in the Boston Metro area. They had 403 Single Family and Condo sales in 2023 which was a 20.2% decrease in sales levels from 2023’s 505 closed units. The average sales price was up 7.5% with a 2023 average sales price of $790,281. This is compared to the average sales price in 2022 which was $735,307. Median price was up as well, however a little lower. The median price was up 5.3% with a $737,000 sales price in 2023. 

The second best performing town in the Boston Metro market was Everett, Massachusetts. Everett had 117 sales in 2023 which was a 24.5% decrease in sales levels from the 155 that sold in 2022. Prices were up 8.3% in 2023 with an average sales price of $543,694. This is compared to the average sales price in 2022 at $501,860. The median pricing gain was in the ballpark with a median price of...

Top 5 South of Boston Towns for Appreciation & Depreciation in 2023

Top 5 South of Boston Appreciation & Depreciation for 2023

A lot happened in the Massachusetts Real Estate Market in 2023… Everyone said that home prices were going to go down, but for the most part… They didn’t!

In looking at the data, there is no rhyme or reason to the towns that saw housing prices go down. So let’s first look at the top and the bottom 5 towns that are South of Boston for Single Family homes. We will go over the amount of sales as well as how much the town appreciated or depreciated. 

Now there is no perfect line that draws the exact towns that make for South of Boston then that would lead into Metro West. The data is great, but what are the exact towns is up for a little interpretation. 

Real quick. My name is Jeff Chubb and I am a retired investment banker turned real estate agent that has sold more than a 1,000 homes. If you have real estate questions, then I am here to help. 

Alright, let's start with the top appreciating towns. 

The fifth highest appreciating town that is South of Boston is Somerset, Massachusetts. The town closed 143 units in 2023 which is a 12.1% decrease in sales levels as there were 165 closings in Somerset in 2022. This was the lowest sales decrease for all the towns in the top 5. The average sales price in 2023 was $470,871 in 2023 which is a 12.3% increase over 2022’s average sale price of $419,382. There was a little discrepancy when you looked at median pricing as median pricing shows Somerset appreciating 7.8%. 

The fourth best performing town South of Boston was Hull, Massachusetts. Hull had 79 sales in 2023 which was 26.2% lower than the 107 units sold in 2022. The average sales price increased 13.1% in 2023 as the sales price...

Massachusetts Weekly Real Estate Market Report - December 11, 2023

YOUR Massachusetts Real Estate Market Update for the week of December 12th

Annnnnd we are back. Back to what we would consider normal for this time of year that is…

In this video we will go over the Single-Family and condo markets in the state of Massachusetts. And we will also do a quick interest rate update… And we will also talk about some relevant current events. 

Hi I am Jeff Chubb – A recovering Investment Banker turned Real Estate Agent that sold more than a 1,000 homes. If you have any questions about the real estate market, then know I am here to help.

Another weekend and another precursor to what is to come. One of our buyers submitted an offer this weekend… If you guessed that it was a multiple offer situation, then you would be right. 5 offers. 

They are getting to do a home inspection, but there was a $5,000 home inspection threshold on any issues. They put in $15,000 in appraisal gap coverage and obviously went well over the asking price. 

And now that we can come to a conclusion that last week was an outlier week for inventory and that it is back to its downward trend… We are really starting to get a picture of the 2024 year. 

Here is my best analogy which should hit home this time of year. The seller’s had been partying… Having a great time and this was essentially the time leading up to the first half of 2022. Second half of 2022 was the party winding down. 2023 was the hangover and now it seems like we just had a little hair on the dog and are about to ramp up again. And time will tell exactly how big of a rager of a party it’s gonna be in 2024. 

By the way, if you are an investor who is looking for off market houses, then reach out as I would love to hear what your buy boxes are. We get off market opportunities each and every day and I would love to play a little game of matchmaking. 

And just as a...

Boston, MA Housing Market in Trouble?

Boston, MA Crash?

A video on YouTube popped up on my feed titled Boston, MA in Trouble? That one put me back… Immediately started thinking, what did I miss? Which led me down the rabbit hole on sales data and analyzing one of the biggest cities in the country. Let’s dig into this. 

But real quick. My name is Jeff Chubb and I am a retired investment banker, turned real estate agent that has sold more than a 1,000 homes. I get calls, text and emails from folks just like you who are looking to make a move. So, whether you are looking to buy in the next 9 or 90 days, then it doesn’t matter. I would be honored to help you. You can find my information in the description below or visit YouTubeRealEstateAgent.com and fill in your info and then we will reach out to you. 

First, I should point out that the channel and the real estate agent on it was from Maryland. And he was interviewing another agent in the Boston market. And while scrolling through Maryland's agent videos… I got the sense he was into click bait and panic porn.

Let’s get going with the data, but spoiler alert… The Boston Market crashed… But probably not how you think. 

So let’s take a look at a Quarter over Quarter analysis on the sales, average prices and the inventory levels in Boston. 

In the first quarter of 2023, Boston sold 721 condos for an average sales price of $1,044,914. And at the end of the first quarter of 2022 there were 787 condos on the market.

This is compared to the first quarter of 2022 when we had 938 condos sell for an average sales...

Massachusetts Weekly Real Estate Market Report - December 3, 2023

YOUR Massachusetts Real Estate Market Update for the week of December 4th

Ahhh… I didn't see that coming. Just a shocking development when it comes to inventory this week. 

In this video we will go over the Single-Family and condo markets in the state of Massachusetts. And we will also do a quick interest rate update… And we will also talk about some relevant current events. 

Hi I am Jeff Chubb – A recovering Investment Banker turned Real Estate Agent that has sold more than a 1,000 homes. If you have any questions about the real estate market, then know I am here to help.

So the decrease in interest rates is working… This was a busy weekend. And it wasn’t just for me. One of the offers that we got accepted this week was going up against six other offers. 

And in case you were wondering. He was able to do a home inspection, but we had to put a higher inspection threshold amount and he also offered appraisal gap coverage. And obviously went over the asking price. Just a heads up for Spring buyers… It looks like it’s about to get crazy. 

By the way, if you are an investor who is looking for off market houses, then reach out as I would love to hear what your buy boxes are. We get off market opportunities each and every day and I would love to play a little game of matchmaking. 

And just as a heads up, these off market opportunities are cash or hard money only investments. No conventional financing is allowed. 

Let’s get into it all and jump into the Single-Family market stats.

Massachusetts Real Estate Market Update - December 2023

YOUR Massachusetts Real Estate Market Update for December 2023

The best way to say it is that November was a solid month in the Market. It was a great month for most… Unless of course if you are one of those people praying for a housing crash to happen. If that’s you, then this month and this data is going to kind of suck. 

If you are looking to hear about the Massachusetts Real Estate Market data for Single Family Homes, Condos and Multi-Family properties… Then you are in the right place.

Real quick, my name is Jeff Chubb and I am a recovering Investment banker, turned real estate agent that has sold more than a 1,000 homes. If you are planning on buying or selling a home now or in the future, then it would be a pleasure to speak with you. 

Let’s start with Single Families

In November of 2023, we saw 2,953 Single Family homes sell for an average sales price of $735 thousand dollars. 

I mean that was no record setting month, but it was right in line with what we saw in October. The 2,953 Single Families that sold was 11.9% off of last year’s sales numbers when we saw 3,352 homes close. 

Don’t get me wrong. I am not celebrating these numbers. But I am recognizing that they could be a lot worse! The 11% year over year decrease is a heck of a lot better then September when we saw a 26% year over year decrease in sales! 

Like I said last month. At this point we just need to embrace the suck when it comes to the amount of sales in the marketplace. This isn’t going to get much better in the near future. 

Sales and prices are two factors that don’t work in tandem. This monthly data continues to prove that. 

There we go. The year over year appreciation rate...

Massachusetts Market Update for 10-31-2023

YOUR Massachusetts Real Estate Market Update for the week of October 30th

Is this the inflection point for the Fall inventory that we have been waiting for? What does this mean for the Spring Market? And let’s talk about the American Dream being dead. 

In this video we will go over the Single-Family and condo markets in the state of Massachusetts. And we will also do a quick interest rate update as well as talk about some very relevant current events. 

Hi I am Jeff Chubb – A recovering Investment Banker turned Real Estate Agent that has sold more than a 1,000 homes. If you have any questions about the real estate market, then know I am here to help.

And by the way. If you are an investor who is looking for off market houses, then reach out as I would love to hear what your buy boxes are. We get off market opportunities each and every day and I would love to play a little game of matchmaking. 

Just as a heads up, these off market opportunities are cash or hard money only investments. No conventional financing is allowed. 

Let’s get into it all and jump into the Single-Family market stats.

Another week and another inventory high for the year. But have we hit the peak? There are currently 4,733 single family homes on the market in the state of Massachusetts. This is one more unit than last week. This means inventory is 5.9% higher than it was 28 days ago. 

I feel pretty confident that this week will be the high point for our inventory levels for 2023. If so, then that’s kind of crazy. We never broke the 5,000 unit mark for the entire year. 

And if this is the case. If inventory is done growing, then it we can start to form some educated opinions on what the Spring market in 2024 will look like. Now the next question will be… How severe will the Fall inventory drawdown be? We saw inventory decrease by 33% from this week in 2022 to the last week of December...

More Inventory for Buyers! - Massachusetts Real Estate Market Update

YOUR Massachusetts Real Estate Market Update for the week of October 9th

Who would have thought the condo market would be this strong… Plus, we are almost at an inflection point for inventory levels in the Single Family market. 

In this video we will go over the Single-Family and condo markets in the state of Massachusetts. We will also do an interest rate update and talk about how Student Loan Repayments could help our inflationary woes. 

Hi I am Jeff Chubb – A recovering Investment Banker turned Real Estate Agent that has sold more than a 1,000 homes. If you have any questions about the real estate market, then know I am here to help.

I am working with some sellers at a higher price point. There haven’t been any recent sales in their price range which means that we haven’t lost any buyers to our competition. 

Rather than a price reduction, the sellers and I decided to offer another type of incentive. We did what is called a 2-1 buydown. It was stunning to see how many agents called and asked for an explanation as to what it is. It’s great that they called, but it was a stunning realization as to how many inexperienced agents are out there. Make sure you interview your agent… It’s the difference between you getting a good value on a house or over paying. 

But so you are in the know… There are many folks who are utilizing 2-1 or 3-2-1 buydowns in order to get a lower rate for the time period that it is thought that we would have higher rates in. Their thought is that they would then refinance once rates drop. 

So let’s say today's rate is 8%. A 2-1 buydown means that in year one the interest rate would be 6% and in year 2 it would be 7% with year 3 through...

August 2023 Real Estate Market Update

July treated the Single Family, Condo and Multi-Family Market… WELL! With one market that was WAYYY up!

Is this the good time before the storm? 

If you are looking to hear about the Massachusetts Real Estate Market data for the month of July for Single Family Homes, Condos and Multi-Family properties… Then you are in the right place.

It’s important to know this information if you are in the market to buy or sell a home, going to be in the real estate market in the future or just want to know what is going on in regards to what is most likely your largest investment.  

Let’s get down to business, but first… 

Hi I am Jeff Chubb – A recovering Investment Banker turned Real Estate Agent that has sold more then a 1,000 homes and is one of the state’s top agents. If you have any questions about real estate, then I am here to help!  

Let’s start with Single Families. Check out all the Quincy Homes For Sale!

In July of 2023, we saw 3,603 Single Family homes sell for an average sales price of $808 thousand dollars. 

Let’s start with the sales comparison. In regards to sales, it’s pretty much more of the same. The July number of sales decreased by an amount of 21% from last year's 4,561 units sold in July of 2022. For the last 6 months, the average decrease in sales has been a decrease in sales of 22.7%.

2019 is in the rearview. So what did the real estate market do?

October 2019 Hull / Cohasset / Hingham Real Estate Market Update

For the Most Part… Inventory Tightened!

With October in the books, we are continuing to see the great inventory tightening of the Fall of 2019. Okay, maybe it hasn’t been “great”, but none the less… There are less homes on the market!
