Waiting for the Spring to List vs Listing your Home Now!

This time of year - WINTER - two of the most frequently asked questions I get from both buyers and sellers in the Boston area is in the same ballpark: From buyers: "Do you think that they'll be more condos to choose from in the spring and do you think it's better to buy now / are prices lower now?" and from sellers: "Do you think I should list now or wait until the spring?". My first instinct in answering this question is, of course, to understand the client's needs as each situation is different: does one need to buy or sell immediately due to relocation or other factors? If that motivation is not that clear and their timing can be flexible the best answer is to look at the data (fun, right?).

I thought about this as it pertains to my market, which is Boston's Seaport District, South End and Leather District. (Off the top of my head, I would believe that in the 'burbs, springtime is the right time to sell as you need to factor in the rush to get that buyer's closing early enough for getting into a school district for September, but not too early as to have your home / driveway / lawn covered in snow to make the curb appeal a little less polished. Once again, this suburban homes theory just a theory - but maybe a blog for another day! ). In terms of the Boston condo market , school districts don't come into account, and buyers moving here for jobs or other reasons is a 365 day a year flurry of activity. So, one would think that whether the sun is shining or there's a few inches of snow on the street, the market is moving. So, Boston condo sellers would still get market value and buyers would have inventory to choose from right? Here's the funny thing: the data (according to MLS), says otherwise.

The data below reflects three year's samples. 2012, 2013 & 2014. What I wanted to see was if Price Per Square Foot Listed, Price Per Square Foot Sold, Days on Market and Days Until Offer were different from two timeframes: January 1 to March 31st compared to April 1st to June 31st. (Once again this is all condo sales in the South End, Seaport District & Leather District ONLY.)

Here's the breakdown: 2012 Jan 1 - March 31st 2012

Avg Days on Market 122 Avg Days to Offer 87 Avg List $603 Avg Sale $585

April  1 - June  30 2012

Avg Days on Market 74 Avg Days to Offer 46 Avg List $622 Avg Sale $612

2013 Jan 1 - March 31st 2013

Avg Days on Market 43 Avg Days to Offer 31 Avg List $662 Avg Sale $658

April 1 - June 30 2013

Avg Days on Market 33 Avg Days to Offer 22 Avg List $673 Avg Sale $679

 2014 Jan 1 - March 31st 2014

Avg Days on Market 49 Avg Days to Offer 31 Avg List $681 Avg Sale $680

April 1 - June 30 2014

Avg Days on Market 33 Avg Days to Offer 22 Avg List $673 Avg Sale $679

As we can see  in ALL three years, SALE PRICES WENT UP & DAYS ON MARKET / DAYS TO OFFER WENT DOWN in those three months!

So buyers - scrape off those windshields and buy now! Sellers....maybe it's better to wait until after the St Patrick's Day hangover goes away to list?

Charleston Chew Lofts are Booming!

The Charleston Chew Lofts in Everett is experiencing extremely strong sales right now. The combination of a hot market, incredible momentum in Everett and specifically the neighborhood where the lofts are, AND the unique / gorgeous lofts at the buildings are the perfect storm for buyers looking for a great investment and amazing home. 

An article in this past Sunday's Boston Globe Business section, highlights the neighborhood's rising value and the lofts here in this excerpt:

Signs that the neighborhood was changing first appeared in 2005 when the former Charleston Chew candy factory was converted into a 69-unit condominium development. Nancy Koury and her husband, Steffen, were among those who bought, lured by an easy commute to their respective jobs at a Boston law firm and product design company. The Kourys bought two units with exposed brick walls and ceilings with aged wood beams, then combined them into a penthouse suite with a deck and skyline views of Boston. Nancy Koury said it was an opportunity to get more for their money than in other Boston-area neighborhoods, including the Charlestown Navy Yard, where they once lived."We pretty much fell in love with the space," said Koury, who today is a member of the Everett Planning Board. The city had plans to improve the neighborhood at least two years before Wynn set his sights on the former Monsanto property in 2012 as the location for his company's casino. Over the past couple of years, it has repaved Route 99, added a bike lane, and installed new lighting. City officials also plan to study the feasibility of adding a commuter rail stop along tracks on the west side of Route 99. Robert Burns is cofounder of Night Shift Brewing, one of two breweries in the Lynde. In the three years since the microbrewery opened on Charlton Street, Burns said he's noticed new businesses, more young people, and more activity in the neighborhood."It just seems as if it's going up and up," Burns said. "And I think as more people realize the close proximity to public transportation and how close it is to the city, it's going to be a great alternative to living in the more expensive communities around it."

Over the past 6 months, the average loft sale here was just over $341,000 for a 1,000 Square Foot brick-and-beam gem. That's an average of $341 a foot, a bargain compared to Boston Lofts that average $550 - $600 a foot at this time.

The building's unit consist mostly of one-level lofts, with juliet balconies or patios. The gem of the Charleston Chew Lofts (and possibly the gem of the loft market north of the Charles River!) is "new the market" unit A405: a 1500+ Square Foot two-level Penthouse loft that boasts incredibly upscale fits & finishes, top-of-the-line appliances, a gas fireplace, a sunny & huge roofdeck with Boston Skyline views, and incredible Master Suite who's walk-in closet is an object of beauty!
