Greater Boston Area 2017 vs. 2016 Real Estate Comparison


2017 was a strong year for local real estate markets, as selling prices rose and inventory remained low. Across the fifteen towns we aggregated, average selling prices for single family homes rose 6% and prices for condos rose 5.7%. Single family home selling prices rose the most in Brookline (18%), and performed the worst in Weston (-5%).

Although prices rose across the board in 2017, market activity was down slightly. The number of single family home sales fell an average of 2.7% and the number of condo sales fell an average of 1.2%. This reduced volume can be explained by the low inventory seen in local markets.
