Boston condo sales volume up; median price rises 10% in May

Boston Proper condo sales volume was up incrementally in May 2015 when compared to a year earlier, according to data released earlier today by The Warren Group, publisher of Banker & Tradesman. The median sales price was 10% higher for the month. It now costs $780,000 to buy the typical condo in Boston.

The real estate market in the downtown Boston neighborhoods has always been strong, even during the recession of the late ’00s. Prices are at all-time highs right now, driven by demand and – even more so – by a lack of supply. Inventory levels are a quarter of what they were in 2009-2010, across most of the market spectrum. Only in the +1-million range is there an adequate supply.

This explains why the median sales price has risen. Sales volume has been stagnant, however, and even though the number of closings rose in May, for the year-to-date, sales are down more than 17%, according to The Warren Group.

Other Boston neighborhoods were all over the place. The Charlestown real estate market seems to be on fire, with sales volume jumping 146.67% and the median price up 23.77%, in May. In Dorchester, however, volume was down 25%, although prices were up 21%. Perhaps a change due to higher-priced properties coming on the market?

It appears that Jamaica Plain is suffering the effects of low inventory. Sales were down 25% in May, and are down 16% for the year. Median sales price was off 6.92% for the month but up 7.64% for the year.

Roxbury sales were down for the month. (There may be some overlap with the South End in the Warren data.) Sales are down about 60% for the year to date while median price is down 19%. Again, overlap, and since the South End had so little inventory, the numbers are skewed.

South Boston prices are up 6.53% for the year, even as sales volume is down 4.72%.

For the state as a whole, condominium sales fell in May with a total of 2,023 transactions completed compared with 2,146 in May 2014. May marked the seventh consecutive month condo sales have decreased on a year-over-year basis. Year-to-date sales were also down by 6.0 percent with 6,732 sales completed during the first five months of this year compared with 7,161 recorded during the same period last year.

Condo prices increased slightly in Massachusetts, climbing 2.2 percent in May, posting a median selling price of $327,000 compared with $320,000 in May 2014. Year-to-date, the median price of a condo continued to climb, recording a modest increase of 0.6 percent to $307,000 from the $305,000 in May 2014. May marked the third time the median selling price of a condo increased year-over-year in 2015.

Thoughts: A busy week of closings, with most of those going under agreement in the latter part of May. I would expect there to be fewer closings as we roll into summer.

Thoughts: A busy week of closings, with most of those going under agreement in the latter part of May. I would expect there to be fewer closings now that we’re rolling into summer. Number of listings, already anemic, will probably go down, too.

Thoughts: The market kind of exploded during the past week with a large number of closings and higher median and average close prices, This is a result of all the under agreements occurring in late April that are now closing. Look at sales velocity: highest dollar amount ever.

Thoughts: It will take you – literally – just one month to put your home under agreement right now. Of course, that’s if you price it correctly. Wow. There is one-quarter the number of listings there were in 2010 but the same number of units under agreement. Oh, and homes are selling for an average 101% of original asking prices. The “middle class” in downtown Boston just aren’t moving out – because where would they go? The effect of this is that new arrivals can’t find homes to buy. So, I guess, they’ll rent instead?
