Fall 2009: The Market, She's a Changin...

  • By

Well, the good news is the market is officially changing. I have never been busier, and I hear the same from other top brokers. Buyers are finally stepping up to the plate and many transactions are getting done. Pricing? Well that is another story.Lets just say there are great deals to be had. If inventory continues to move at this pace and the stock market remains stable, the bottom will be well in place (and behind us) soon. I expect we will have one of the most active Spring markets ever. Since August 1st (in Roxbury, Bridgewater and Washington) there are 19 sales and 3 under agreement.During this period in 2008, there were 12 sales. The 23 deals done (during this period) this year surpasses the 18 that were done in 2007 as well.If you have a specificquestion about market stats, please ask!
