Boston Not a Seller's Market; Happy B-Day, Charlestown!

New, 1 comment

BOSTON—According to Redfin, there are enough homes for sale in Suffolk County, which includes Boston and Chelsea, to satisfy 6.1 months' worth of demand, which means the city is not, in fact, technically, barely, in a seller's market: "If supply dips below six months, it’s considered a seller’s market." So there. For now. [Redfin]

MALDEN/MEDFORD—Recent apartment-building trades have tenants up in arms: "Allston-based Alpha Management had barely signed a $23.5 million deal April 26 to purchase the 248 units, when the company began slipping notices under tenants' doors demanding as much as 20 and 30 percent more, to take effect June 1."
