  These two graphs show the Market report for Bedford MA starting in the year 2006 and ending presently. What is interesting to look at is that even though we are in a "down market", the average time on the market is significantly lower than the previous two years. Also a key point is that the price of homes is not down like much of the public thinks. The price is actually up 3% from last year and up 4% from 2006.

 Bedford's single family home sales market  is having a strong summer, but may be running out of homes to sell. With August sales numbers in, the summer has been strong, volume is slightly low, but prices have been rising since the May low. The graph below shows a line for the median price and bars for the numbers of homes sold.   In the Single Family market, there were only 30 properties listed September 1.  This represents a 32% decrease in inventory from the same time last year. August sales volume continued the summer surge with 14 home sales. Along with the increased volume the sales prices increased slightly. The average time on market dropped to only 57 days. The summer's spike in volume has reduced the supply of property to only 2 months, keeping the Bedford market in favor of t...

First a review of where we came from. For Bedford, the market volume peaked in 2004, and the prices peaked in 2005, at an annual median price of $530,000. Prices have shown only a 1% pullback since that time. The number of homes sold in 2004 was 134. In 2007, 140 homes sold so the volume has in fact risen. So far in the first half of 2008 there have only been 35 sales, so this year the market volume is low. There is a seasonal effect on the Bedford market with Q1 (Jan, Feb, Mar) being the low and Q4 (Oct, Nov, Dec) being somewhat weak also. This seasonality should be taken into account when looking at any monthly data. 2008 Q1 and Q2 volume was very low, but June was strong and July also so the strong summer seems to be holding. Generally there have been fewer homes on the market this y...
