Curlett Report for Weston, MA Real Estate ~ May 2019

iStock-953625220.jpg

For those of you who love market stats, here’s the May 2019 Curlett Report for Weston MA Real Estate.

May 2019 began with 103 active* properties on the market. During the course of the next 31 days, 38 new** listings came on the market, and 21 properties went pending** (Contingent or Under Agreement). We ended the month with 120 listings, an average list price of $3,178,521, and an average days on market (DOM) of 122.

Looking back a year, May 2018 began with 69 active* properties on the market. During the course of the month, 37 new** listings came on the market, and 17 properties went pending**. We ended the month with 86 listings, an average list price of $3,778,856, and an average DOM of 142.

To summarize a few key points:

  • As has been the case since March, our inventory this May was up from last year’s at both the start and the end of the month. We started May 2019 with an inventory that was up 49% from May 2018 and finished the month up 40%.

  • In May 2019, we netted out the month with a 17% increase in inventory (103 to 120 properties), and in May 2018, there was a 25% increase in inventory (69 to 86 listings). These percentage increases are typical for May as the Spring market is in full swing.

  • Our average list price was down 16% at the end of this May vs. last ($3,178,521 vs. $3,778,856). The average DOM was also down 16% this May vs. last (122 vs. 142 days). This is a positive indicator as it means properties were on the market for fewer days.

  • This year we had more new and pending activity in May as compared to last year. In May 2019, there were 38 new and 21 pending properties, whereas in May 2018, there were 37 new and 17 pending properties. So the number of new listings was up just 3% and pendings were up 24% this year from last. In May 2019 and 2018, the majority of the new and pending properties were priced below $2M. And just 4 of the 38 new listings that came on in May 2019 also went pending.

  • The Weston market has always had a high percentage of its inventory priced above $3M. In fact, historically these high-end listings (above $3M) account for 40% or more of the inventory. In May 2019, however, that figure was 38%, and last May, it was 41%.

April 2019 began with 85 active* properties on the market.

We ended the month with 102 listings, an average list price of $3,196,924, and an average days on market (DOM) of 123.

Looking back a year, April 2018 began with 60 active* properties on the market. During the course of the month, 24 new** listings came on the market, and 19 properties went pending**. We ended the month with 70 listings, an average list price of $4,052,737, and an average DOM of 153.

To summarize a few key points:

  • Our inventory this April was significantly more than last year’s at both the start and the end of the month. We started April 2019 with an inventory that was up 42% from April 2018 and finished the month up 46%.

  • In April 2019, we netted out the month with a 20% increase in inventory (85 to 102 properties), and in April 2018, there was a 17% increase in inventory (60 to 70 listings). These percentage increases are typical during the month of April as the Spring market continues to be in high gear.

  • Our average list price was down 21% at the end of this April vs. last April ($3,196,924 vs. $4,052,737). The average DOM was down 20% this April vs. last (123 vs. 153 days).

  • This year we had more new and pending activity in April as compared to last year. In April 2019, there were 36 new and 20 pending properties, whereas in April 2018, there were 24 new and 19 pending properties. So the number of new listings was up significantly (50%) and pendings were up slightly (5%) this year from last. In April 2019 and 2018, the majority of the new and pending properties were priced below $2M. And 10 of the 36 new listings that came on in April 2019 also went pending.

  • The Weston market has always had a high percentage of its inventory priced above $3M. In fact, historically these high-end listings (above $3M) account for 40% or more of the inventory. So it was interesting to see that at the end of this April, only 36% of the remaining properties were priced above $3M. Last April, that number was 44%.

Curlett Report for Weston, MA Real Estate - March 2019

iStock-960624866.jpg

For those of you who love market stats, here’s the March 2019 Curlett Report for Weston MA Real Estate.

March 2019 began with 62 active* properties on the market. During the course of the next 31 days, 37 new** listings came on the market, and 16 properties went pending** (Contingent or Under Agreement). We ended the month with 84 listings, an average list price of $3,061,415, and an average days on market (DOM) of 129.

Looking back a year, March 2018 began with 61 active* properties on the market. During the course of the month, 25 new** listings came on the market, and 19 properties went pending**. We ended the month with 60 listings, an average list price of $4,040,998, and an average DOM of 178.

To summarize a few key points:

  • Our inventory this March was slightly more than last year’s at the start of the month and significantly more at the end of the month. This is the first time since I began the Curlett Report five months ago that this year’s inventory surpassed the prior year’s - at both the beginning and end of the month. We started March 2019 with an inventory that was up 2% from March 2018 and finished the month up 40%!

  • In March 2019, we netted out the month with a 35% increase in inventory (62 to 84 properties), and in March 2018, there was a 2% decrease in inventory (61 to 60 listings). The percentage increase in March 2019 is typical for this time of the year as the Spring market activity continues to grow throughout the month. Last year’s decrease in inventory from the beginning to the end of the month was completely atypical.

  • Our average list price was down 24% at the end of this March vs. last March ($3,061,415 vs. $4,040,998). The average DOM was down 28% this March vs. last (129 vs. 178 days).

In March 2019, there were 37 new and 16 pending properties, whereas in March 2018, there were 25 new and 19 pending properties. So the number of new listings was up 48% and pendings were down 16% this year from last. This year the majority of the new and pending properties were priced below $2M. Last year, it was mixed. The majority of the new listings were priced above $2M, and the majority of the pending properties were below $2M.

  • Historically the Weston market has always had a high percentage of its inventory priced above $3M. At the end of this March, 40.5% of the remaining properties were priced above $3M, and last March, that number was slightly higher at 45%.

Curlett Report for Weston, MA Real Estate - February 2019

iStock-835470888.jpg

For those of you who love market stats, here’s the February 2019 Curlett Report for Weston MA Real Estate.

We began February 2019 with 46 active* properties on the market. During the course of the next 28 days, 17 new** listings came on the market, and 7 properties went pending** (Contingent or Under Agreement). We ended the month with 61 listings, an average list price of $3,303,236, and an average days on market (DOM) of 152.

Looking back a year, February 2018 began with 51 active* properties on the market. During the course of the month, 19 new** listings came on the market, and 16 properties went pending**. We ended the month with 60 listings, an average list price of $3,499,481, and an average DOM of 190.

To summarize a few key points:

  • Our inventory in February this year was less than what it was last year at the beginning of the month, but the opposite was true at the end of the month. The trend we’ve seen for the last several months is an inventory count that has been down in the current year from the previous one at both the beginning and end of the month. But not this month! We started February 2019 with an inventory that was down 10% from February 2018 but finished it up 2%.

  • In February 2019, we netted out the month with a 33% increase in inventory (46 to 61 properties), and in February 2018, there was a 18% rise in inventory (51 to 60 listings). These percentage increases are typical for the month of February as the Spring market gets underway.

  • Our average list price was down 6% at the end of this February vs. last February ($3,303,236 vs. $3,449,481). The average DOM was down 20% this February vs. last (152 vs. 190 days).

  • This year we had less new and pending activity in February than we did last year, which was the same case in January. In February 2019, there were 17 new and 7 pending properties, whereas in February 2018, there were 19 new and 16 pending properties. So the number of new listings was down 11% and pendings were down a significant 56% this year from last. The new inventory this year was more skewed toward the higher end (above $2M) than it was last year, which was also the case in January. Specifically this year, 35% of the new listings were priced below and 65% were priced above $2M. Last year, those numbers were the opposite with 58% of the new listings priced below and 42% priced above $2M. In terms of the pending listings, the majority were priced below $2M this February and last, though more strikingly last year (57% in 2019 vs. 75% in 2018).
