Dear Friends and Neighbors:
In terms of house size, we expect the 4-bedroom market to remain the hottest segment after posting sales of 150 units (49% market share) in 2018 with an average sales price year-over-year gain of 10%, to $843,903. We believe the 5- and 6-bedroom segments will remain soft, with the exception of new construction and recent-year major upgrades where the value proposition is more appropriately aligned.
Looking at the various neighborhoods in 2018, Hawes & Willard had the most homes sold at 62 & 60, Ridge & Orchard had the highest average sales price, each at over $1.0 mn, Somerville had the most active market for 3 bedrooms at 19 homes sold and Travell had the best value for 4 bedrooms ($682,945). We expect these trends to broadly continue in 2019.
