Somerville Market Summary This is an analysis of the real estate market in Somerville. (Condo) I N V ENTO RY
Inventory levels can be used to show us the ‘health’ of the real estate market in a town. If an inventory level graph shows seasonal fluctuations, then we know that the market is ‘healthy’ and showing normal activity. If seasonal fluctuations are not obvious then what we are seeing is an ‘unhealthy’ market where foreclosures and short sales have cluttered and hidden the normal trends of the market. Price trends can be learnt from inventory level data – in a ‘healthy’ market with demand greater than supply, prices tend to move up. In an ‘unhealthy’ market where supply far outstrips demand then the trend on prices is down. This follows the normal Supply and Demand market dynamics.
AV E R AG E H O M E P R IC E S
High demand leads to appreciating prices, and average home prices in many towns in Massachusetts are higher than we saw in the prior peak of the market in 2005-2006.

By reviewing the price distribution data for a given town you can get an overview of the price characteristics within that town. For example, if you had 1 million dollars to spend, and the price band data showed you that only 3% of homes sold each year were in the million-dollar price band then that tells you a totally different story than one where you can see that 60% of the homes sold were in this price range. Average prices can tell you a certain amount, but to see the spread of how many homes within a given price band compared to other price bands within the town tells you a significant story.
S A L E P R IC E TO LIS T PRIC E R AT IO
By reviewing the sold to original list price ratio you can get a very good understanding of the health of the real estate market in a town, and the cyclical nature of sales in the town. The number of homes sold, along with the average percentage of the original list price to sales price data, gives you a snapshot over the last 12 months of important data related to the real estate market in a town. It is important to note that the reported data is approximately 6-8 weeks behind the actual event of the home going under agreement.
