Boston condos and real estate sales report for week ending March 10, 2013

Abbreviated report this week because I apparently didn’t do updates in 2012 and 2011 so I have limited data from which to pull.

Thoughts: A slight jump in on-markets is welcomed news but activity has jumped, too, so negligible effect. What are you seeing out there?
