Arlington Home Sales, a 2017-2018 Comparison

*excerpts from Steve’s video assessment given on 1/3. Click to view his full overview.

This side-by-side comparison of Arlington home sales from 2017 to 2018 sheds light on some expected (and not-so-expected) information.

While we are still experiencing a lack of inventory in the area, the market does seem to be stabilizing. It appears that home values have reached their ceiling and buyers are gaining some leverage – they are willing to wait a little longer and are more reluctant to engage in bidding wars.

The number of single-family home sales from 2017 to 2018 stayed consistent while the average single-family home price rose significantly by 12%.

The number of condo homes sold was also fairly steady rising from 234 sales to 245, with prices rising about 7%.

Multi-family home sales proved interesting – there are fewer available multi-family homes on the market because so many have been converted into condos. The number of multi-family homes went from 37 to 53 with the sale price rising from $902,000 to $1,004,000 - a noteworthy jump.

If you are thinking of selling in today’s market, it is important to be informed and plan ahead. We would be happy to provide additional information and insights into these market trends for you. Please do not hesitate to contact us.

      Arlington's Top 10 Real Estate Facts, August 2020

      There is just so much happening with Arlington real estate (and beyond) these days it can be hard to boil it down into what's most important, right now. 

      The Arlington real estate market is different from the national market, it is different from the Massachusetts market, and it’s even different from neighboring Cambridge or Lexington markets. While it can be influenced by these broader factors, it is its own entity with its own trends and direction.

      To break it down, here are our top 10 facts about the Arlington real estate market, right now:*

      1.       The number of single-family homes sold is down 11% as compared to this time last year.

      2.       The average single-family home sale price is up by $17,255 as compared to this time last year.

      3.       The number of condo homes sold is down 5% as compared to this time last year.

      4.       The average condo sale price is up by $28,412 as compared to this time last year.

      5.       The number of multi-family homes sold is down 33% as compared to this time last year.

      6.       The average multi-family home sale price is up by $121,389 as compared to this time last year.

      7.       Arlington is a premier community for anyone looking for more square footage, in-home office space, or a yard outside of Boston.

      8.       Arlington provides an array of distinctive housing, offering up options for first-time home-buyers, downsizers, investors, families, and anyone looking to be part of a vibrant community.

      9.       Inventory is down and home values are up, making it a prime time to be a home seller in Arlington.

      10.   Now a part of Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty, Steve McKenna & The Home Advantage Team are firmly established as Arlington’s #1 real estate team for more than 30 years and counting.

      It can be difficult to decipher what is relevant and what is extraneous in real estate - in Arlington or elsewhere. So if you are thinking of buying or selling, it is critical to have a team with feet on the street and an insider's eye to an evolving buyer and seller market. Contact us today, and put your home in our hands.
